An ex-girlfriend of the accused murderer who needs to ‘get the hell out’ as new details of their ‘special relationship’ emerge.
The unidentified woman spoke as authorities released video footage of suspect Casey White, 38, and Assistant Director of Corrections Vicky White, 56, and further detailed the pair’s ‘special relationship.’
Casey White was sentenced to prison in 2019 for a series of violent crimes committed in 2015, including trying to murder his then-girlfriend.
In an interview with local ABC affiliate , his ex-girlfriend said she was ‘freaking out’ about her ex, who once promised to kill her, being on the run.
‘I thought I would never have to worry about him ever again. Casey White is very dangerous to everybody that is around him,’ the woman said.
The escaped inmate was charged with two counts of capital murder in the 2020 stabbing death of Connie Ridgeway, who he confessed to killing while already serving a 75-year sentence for an array of violent crimes that took place in 2015.
While White’s ex was able to escape his armed attack against her, she remains worried what he may do while on the run, and if he will try to make good on his promise to kill her.
As new details emerged of the ‘special relationship’ between inmate Casey White and Vicky White — who are not related — Casey White’s ex-girlfriend shared a warning for Vicky White.
‘If she is still alive, [she needs to] get the hell out. Run. Run as far as you can, and turn yourself in, and contact somebody. Like, do the right thing before you lose your life or somebody else does,’ the ex-girlfriend said.
As the search for the fugitive inmate and corrections officer progresses, authorities say their investigation has revealed what they believe to be a romantic relationship between the two.
‘Investigators received information from the inmates at the Lauderdale County Detention Center over the weekend that there was a special relationship between Director White and inmate Casey White,’ the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office said.
Their ‘special relationship’ was confirmed by inmates at the detention facility who told investigators Casey White was being given extra food and ‘privileges no one else got’ from Vicky White, reported.
The sheriff’s office declined to clarify what it meant by ‘special relationship,’ but later issued a warrant for Vicky White’s arrest on charges of permitting or facilitating escape in the first degree.
On Friday, Vicky White told staff at the Lauderdale County Detention Center she was taking Casey White to the county courthouse for an ‘alleged mental health evaluation,’ which was not on the court’s schedule for the day.
Hours later, when staff realized the two were missing, the vehicle Vicky White used to transport inmates was found abandoned at a nearby shopping center. The two have been missing ever since.
Up to $15,000 in reward is being offered for information that will lead to their capture.
