Who was Vicky White?

Vicky White, 56, was best known as the former Assistant Superintendent of Correctional Services at the Lauderdale County Jail.

She led a quiet life but gained national attention after allegedly helping Casey White, 38, escape from prison on April 29, 2022.

At the time, Vicky was only a few hours away from her retirement.

Sheriff Rick Singleton said Vicky was a “model employee” at 17 with “an impeccable record, not a single negative thing on her personnel file,” according to NBC News.

He added: “She was admired and respected by her staff and her subordinates. It was just a total shock.”

After the escape, Vicky was charged with allowing or facilitating first-degree escape, second-degree forgery, and identity theft, according to a warrant obtained by CBS News.

Aside from her occupation and her alleged crimes, not much information is available about her personal life and family.

Although the two share the same last name, Vicky and Casey are not related by blood.

Instead, they are said to have been in a relationship for over two years, reports NBC News.

They reportedly communicated over the phone throughout their relationship to keep it private.

Further details about their relationship are not yet known.

According to Brenda Smith, a law professor at American University, relationships between inmates and officers are “a very common story.”

Smith told NBC News, “I think it’s kind of an oversight construct in these environments that creates these environments and creates these opportunities.

“I think it really takes a more rigorous look at what’s going on at the facility, not just for the inmates but for the staff as well.”

Smith added that these types of relationships are detrimental to “the integrity of the system” because “if that could happen, if the officer could pretty much walk out with the prisoner, then it speaks to a larger problem of insecurity in the prison, in the institution, which should worry us across the board”.

Vicky reportedly told her colleagues that she would be taking Casey to the courthouse for a mental health evaluation, but it was later revealed that an inquest was never scheduled.

What happened to Vicky White?

On April 29, 2022, Vicky and Casey left prison for the alleged inquest and disappeared.

It was not until May 9, 2022, that authorities were able to locate the fugitives in Indiana, leading to a police chase and crash.

After the chase, Casey was taken into custody and Vicky was taken to a nearby hospital with “very serious” injuries resulting from an allegedly self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to NBC News, Casey reportedly told the US Marshals Service after he surrendered, “Please help my wife. She just shot herself in the head and I didn’t do it.”

She later died in hospital from her injuries.
