A dangerous prisoner and his accomplice, a prison officer, were arrested Monday in the state of Indiana (United States). The 56-year-old woman is said to have taken her own life. They had been on the run since April 29.
“Casey White (38) is under arrest again,” Sheriff Rick Singleton said. Vicky White – who was not related to her accomplice – would have committed suicide during the intervention of the police, according to information from CNN.
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.
A duo made up of opposing profiles
“Casey White was driving this vehicle,” the police chief said. Vicky White was in the passenger seat. During the pursuit, the pickup had an accident. Casey White surrendered. Vicky White was taken to hospital.
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.
