Related Video: Surveillance footage of the Alabama Correctional Officer at the hotel before he disappears with an inmate
Dramatic police footage captured the moment a statewide manhunt in Indiana ended earlier this week after suspected murder Casey White was arrested and the body of his lover, Vicky White, the jail warden, was pulled from a wrecked vehicle.
Ms. White, the 56-year-old correctional officer, and White, an inmate serving a 75-year sentence for attempted murder, ended up in a chase and crash in Evansville. She died from a gunshot wound, according to the coroner’s office.
White was taken into custody and urged officers to help his “wife,” reports said. The couple are said to have been in a romantic relationship for around two years before breaking out of prison more than 10 days ago and were unmarried.
A chilling 911 call made after the crash revealed Ms White told the key murder suspect: “Let’s go outside and run”. She also seemed to blame White for wanting to stay “in a damn motel” just before her crash.
An investigation into the ordeal is ongoing as police face mounting questions about how the fugitives evaded capture for over a week.
The coroner will not release any further information
The Vanderburgh County Coroner in Alabama ruled that the death of Alabama Correctional Officer Vicky White Thursday was from a self-inflicted wound.
According to CNN, a spokesman for the office said that no further details about the coroner’s investigation will be released as an investigation into her disappearance along with inmate Casey White – who was taken back into custody on Monday – is ongoing.
Police are also investigating how the couple came into possession of at least four handguns and an AR-15 rifle when they were captured, CBS reports.

How did Casey White end up in the facility where Vicky White worked?
Casey White, the alleged murder suspect who escaped prison and was on the run for 10 days, was not originally held at the facility where Correctional Officer Vicky White worked.
Mr. White was originally held at the William E. Donaldson Correctional Facility, just down the road from the Lauderdale County Detention Center where Ms. White worked.
According to Fox News, when Mr White’s lawyers asked Donaldson to allow them to bring laptops to discuss their case with their client, they were denied. Instead of trying to persuade the prison to change its mind, the lawyers are demanding that Mr. White be transferred to the prison where they could review her case.
Mr White – who was already communicating discreetly with Ms White – was granted a transfer which took him to the same prison where Ms White worked and set the stage for the breakout.

ICYMI: Casey White told officers he did not kill Connie Ridgeway when he was being pulled from a wrecked car
An additional case report filed by the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office reveals new details from the moment Casey White surrendered to authorities and was taken into custody, while Vicky White was found with a gunshot wound to the head.
In the report, Sgt. Erik Nilssen describes how he approached the crime scene Monday after hearing the US Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force appeal for assistance.
“When male suspect Casey White was pulled from the vehicle, I handcuffed him. Mr. White had blood on his shirt and blood was coming out of the back of his head,” Sgt Nilssen wrote.
He then enlisted the help of a local firefighter to treat White’s head injury.
“During my interaction with Mr. White, he repeatedly inquired about the condition of Ms. Vicky White, whom he referred to as his ‘wife,'” Sgt. Nilssen wrote. “Mr White also kept saying he didn’t kill Connie Ridgeway.”
These statements were reportedly unsolicited, as Sergeant Nilssen wrote that he “didn’t ask him any formal questions”.
White is currently awaiting trial for the 2015 stabbing murder of 58-year-old mother-of-two Connie Ridgeway.
Ms. Ridgeway was found stabbed to death at her home in Rogersville, Alabama on October 23, 2015.
