A MAN held at gunpoint by fugitive ‘killer’ Casey White was rescued by his dog but now fears he is being hunted.
Alabama man Charles Abernathy said White was another “Charles Manson” and “Ted Bundy” and extremely violent.
“He will literally do anything and everything including killing, kidnapping, killing animals and putting children at risk to get what he wants,” he told The Post on Thursday.
“And of all the people to escape from, this guy is probably the worst level to possibly escape.
“You did like Manson and you damned like Bundy and all these crazy people. He’s at that level for me.”
The 37-year-old testified against White in a 2019 trial on charges of attempted murder and kidnapping from a 2015 shooting spree and is now worried the deranged criminal will “hunt” him after he escaped from the Lauderdale County jail a week ago .
Casey and his alleged accomplice, 56-year-old correctional officer Vicky White, have been missing since last Friday.
Charles said White was “good enough not to get caught” and that he haunted his house days before the burglary.
“He’s very hunter-like,” Charles said of the December 2015 horror incident that saw White burst into his home in Athens with a gun in each hand.
The man said White suddenly burst through his door with a plan to kiss his ex-girlfriend, who had been living in the house.
As the woman’s children slept in the basement, White gave chase and held her, Charles and his friend at gunpoint.
They were told to lie down face down when Charles’ dog Missy Britches, a bloodhound/German shepherd mix, burst into the room and bit White, startling him enough to give the trio time to escape.
White’s ex stormed out the back door while Charles and his partner fled through a bathroom window.
“Missy Britches, she ran away. She heard what was going on…she’s the real heroine of the story. She saved our lives,” Charles said.
“If it wasn’t for her I’m 99.999% sure we would have died that night. Actually, no, I’m 100% sure we probably would have died that night.”
Tragically, Missy Britches was shot multiple times by White and died before help could arrive.
“[She was] super loyal, she would never bite a soul,” he said when he was able to cry.
“We actually buried her on that land as well because we felt … she was a protector there and she still is, I think.”
White was arrested later that night after an hour-long altercation with police and later convicted in 2019 and sentenced to 75 years in prison.
Charles – who had never met White prior to that fateful night – is now in hiding, fearing for his safety.
He warned that White liked to wear camouflage and was hard for US Marshals to catch.
“If I had the means, I would pack my things and get my dog and I would travel as far out of the state of Alabama as I could,” Charles said.
Referring to White’s alleged fellow accomplice, Vicky, he said: “What I’m scared of is that she’s not even alive anymore.
“For me it was a means to an end.”
It comes as the son, whose mother was allegedly stabbed by the now-escaped convict, urged the public to get out of his way because White is “incredibly violent” and there are “no limits to what he’s allowed to do.” .
The couple, who are not related, left prison at 9.14am as Vicky told her colleagues she would be accompanying White to a nearby courthouse for a mental examination – but no such appointment was scheduled.
Austin Williams, whose mother was stabbed, told The US Sun he feared for his own safety and the safety of the community while White remains at large.
He said: “He is a very dangerous person with a history of violence and everyone who comes into contact with it [Casey White and Vicky White] must contact 911 immediately.
“This is a 6’2”, 250 pound man who broke into a woman’s home and stabbed her to death.
“Anyone who crosses his path poses a great danger…there is no limit to what he could do.”
