Related video: Surveillance footage of Alabama prison officer in hotel before disappearing with inmate
Indiana police released dramatic body camera footage Tuesday of the moment fugitive Casey White was captured.
Police also released footage of officers inspecting an abandoned Ford F-150 at an Evansville car wash and another video of first responders helping Vicky White.
The nationwide manhunt for a double murder suspect and the correctional officer who helped him escape ended in a car chase, crash and death on Monday. Alabama police received a tip on Sunday – one of hundreds – that ultimately proved successful and led to a confrontation with escaped inmate Casey White and Vicky White, the corrections officer.
At a press conference on Tuesday, police revealed they found a treasure trove of weapons inside the couple’s car, along with $29,000 in cash. Officials say the couple planned to have a shootout with police, but were arrested before they could go through with their plan.
A “short” police chase ensued, according to Lauderdale County, Alabama, by Sheriff Rick Singleton, which ended when a U.S. Marshal rammed the couple’s Cadillac. After the accident, Mr White was apprehended, while Mrs White died from a gunshot that was allegedly self-inflicted.
Mr Singleton said no officer fired during the car chase and Mr White showed ‘no remorse’ for Ms White’s death.
Fugitive’s trial for 2015 murder set to begin in June
Casey White’s murder trial will begin in June, we have learned.
After an emergency hearing on Tuesday in the momentous case against White for the 2015 murder of Ridgeway, his son Austin Williams was quoted as saying by CNN that the capture of the fugitive was a “huge relief” and that “it felt like a miracle”.
Mr Williams said: “I’ve been waiting a long time, just waiting a little longer, I think it will be fine. They did the right thing by getting him to Donaldson as soon as possible and I’m looking forward to the trial date.
“It didn’t look very promising at all,” he said. “They had a head start, not a lot of leads and all that and just felt like a really good plan and it turns out they didn’t, which worked, thankfully.”
White escaped from prison in Alabama on April 29 and was captured Monday in Evansville, Indiana.

Police defend investigation after car wash owner says officers didn’t take tipping seriously
Authorities have sought to defend their search for the runaway lovers after the owner of an Indiana car wash said police did not take him seriously when he first reported the abandoned vehicle of the couple last week.
James Stinson said NewsNationNow that he noticed the 2006 Ford F-15 abandoned at the Weinbach Car Wash last week.
Mr Stinson said he noticed the van had Tennessee license plates and alerted authorities.
But when an officer arrived on the scene, he said there was nothing he could do because the vehicle had not been reported stolen, he said.
The business owner had the vehicle towed himself last Wednesday.
It was Sunday when he was finally contacted by the US Marshals Service about the truck and Mr Stinson checked his surveillance footage, finding White on video at his business last Tuesday.
On Monday, authorities released the footage and confirmed the truck belonged to the fugitives.
At Tuesday’s press conference, officials defended their actions, saying an officer returned the plate on May 2 during routine parking lot patrols, but because it had not been reported as stolen. , he had not acted.
When the car wash owner also reported the vehicle two days later, the officer told him he would have to wait 48 hours before it could be towed or he could remove it himself.
At that time, officials said there was no indication he was related to the fugitives on the run from Alabama.
