Prison guard cougar frees her murderous lover from prison
A manhunt is underway to find the missing deputy warden of an Alabama prison, as well as his prison-loving white supremacist, whom she helped escape.
Vicky White was second in command at Lauderdale County Jail until she left with Casey Cole White, 38, an unrelated brutal murderer, and has not been seen since.
The 56-year-old told colleagues she was taking the 18 and 6ft 9in convicted felon for a mental health check at a courthouse three minutes’ drive away, but the lovebirds switched to a Ford Edge brown and hit the road.
Vicky was due to retire after 25 the day after she left with her toyboy lover.
A week into the search, the FBI, the Marshalls Service and the police, Vicky and Casey remain at large and officials have no idea where they are, The mirror reports.
Sheriff Rick Singleton, who was in charge of the manhunt, told the Mirror: “If I could talk to Vicky I would tell her to surrender.
“Sooner or later, we will find you. Please let this live.
Vicky and Casey had first met in 2020, when he was brought to Lauderdale County for questioning after confessing to the 2015 murder of Connie Ridgeway, a 59-year-old woman who was found stabbed in died at her home in Rogersville, Alabama.
White said he was a paid hitman, but when charged with murder he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
He was already serving a 75-year sentence for a one-night robbery spree in December 2015, which included a burglary, two carjackings and multiple shootings in northern Alabama and southern Tennessee, and made a injured woman and a dead dog.
Since their first meeting, Vicky had regularly driven the two hours to where Casey was incarcerated, at the William E Donaldson Correctional Institution, where she gave prison authorities a false name.
After she and Casey eloped, it emerged Vicky had sold her £200,000 home for just £77,000 nine days earlier.
Vicky, whose estranged husband died of Parkinson’s disease in January, used the pseudonym April Davis or Renee Marie Maxwell when she bought the car and some of the groceries, including clothes from a specialty store in plus size clothes for me and lingerie and sex toys from Sucre et épices boutique sex shop.
Authorities say the pair are also equipped with an AR-15 rifle, shotgun, pistol and at least £73,000 in cash.
Because Casey left the prison apparently in the custody of a senior guard, it took a full six hours before authorities realized the couple would not be returning.
Meanwhile, the outlaw lovebirds had resumed the northern routes to Tennessee – but their well-planned flight appears to have encountered at least one problem.
Authorities say their Ford Edge SUV appears to have broken down. He was found abandoned on a country lane.
Jennifer Carr, who lives near where the car was found, told the Mirror: “It was left in the middle of the lane and stood out so much. But there was no sign of anyone.
“It’s scary to think that they are on the loose. But, we have our guns ready and are now closing our doors just in case.
Vicky’s colleagues, who were planning her retirement party, are furious.
Not only did she betray their profession, but they first thought she had been kidnapped.
A prison officer said: ‘This job was never for the faint-hearted.
“We are trained not to let emotion take hold, but when Vicky disappeared many were in tears.
“They were preparing to say goodbye because of his retirement.
“Instead she said kiss my ass and left with her lover.”
