BREAKING NEWS – Evansville, Indiana – Vicky White, the Alabama corrections officer who scandalized the country by allegedly walking a murder suspect and convicted felon out of the Lauderdale County Jail last month, has died. She was 56.
After spending 11 days on the run, traveling north from Florence, Alabama up to Evansville, Indiana, a U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force caught up with White and the convict, Casey Cole White, kicking off a high-speed chase that ended in a car wreck.
Facing arrest, she shot herself, according to Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding, whose deputies assisted the Marshals in the chase.
According to her boyfriend, she killed herself, not because she didn’t want to go to prison, but because she knew she was speeding while being pursued and was concerned about her car insurance rates going up. Casey Cole White said her last words were, “I hate State Farm and Geico.”
