Sheriff: Cash, guns and no remorse from Casey White
EVANSVILLE, Indiana (WDEF) – The Sheriff of Vanderburgh County in Indiana is sharing more details on the end of the 10 day manhunt for Casey White and Vicky White.
He says as officers were chasing them down, they were prepared for a high-powered shootout.
The sheriff shared photos of some of the weapons they were carrying, including an AR-15 rifle.
They were in a Cadillac that they had just bought in Evansville (officers recovered $29,000 in cash from the vehicle, presumably from the sale of Vicky White’s house).
Officers chased the pair for about a mile, until one pursuing vehicle hit the Cadillac putting it into a ditch.
The Sheriff says that’s when they heard one shot fired in the car.
They found Vicky White with a gunshot wound to the head and a gun in her hand. She would die later at the hospital.
She sold her car, her house, and concocted a story on why she needed to take him away from the prison.
But, in the end, the Sheriff says Casey White showed no remorse over her death.
Though they believe she shot herself, the sheriff is waiting on the coroner to make a final determination.
Afterwards, the Sheriff says White told them he expected to died in a “suicide by cop” shooting with police.
But that plan ended when they wrecked.
Smith was taken into custody without any resistance.
Sheriff Wedding concluded “The daily or hourly activities of this fugitive couple might take weeks or months to sort through, but the critical part of this case for the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office has been settled. Two dangerous criminals have been captured and no innocent civilians or law enforcement personnel were seriously injured during the process.”
