American police announced on Monday May 9 that they had arrested a detainee in the state of Indiana “extremely dangerous”who escaped on April 29 with the help of a prison officer, also arrested. ‘Casey White is under arrest again’, Sheriff Rick Singleton told reporters. His alleged accomplice, prison officer Vicky White, was injured during the arrest. Their run on a background of romance, which began in a prison in Alabama, fascinated the Americans, over the revelations day after day.
Their escape was cut short after a car chase with the police. The couple were chased while driving a Ford pickup, the sheriff said. “Casey White was driving this vehicle. Vicky White was in the passenger seat. During the pursuit, the pickup had an accident. Casey White surrendered. Vicky White was taken to hospital., said the police chief. He did not specify the nature of the injuries of the prison officer but, according to American media, the woman inflicted a shot with a firearm.
Vicky White, 56, and Casey White, 38, have the same name but are not related. The improbable duo has aroused great interest, in particular because of the contrasts between them: she, a model little prison officer with an apparently orderly life; he, a 2.06 m multi-recidivist colossus imprisoned for murder.
