Vicky White Died of Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound: Coroner
The death of a corrections officer who allegedly helped an Alabama murder suspect escape from prison was ruled a suicide, said a coroner’s office in Indiana.
Vicky White died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, said the Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office in Indiana on Tuesday evening. White is accused of aiding the escape of Casey Cole White, who is not related to her, but they were located about a week later in Indiana following a police chase and subsequent car crash, the sheriff’s office said in a Tuesday news conference.
Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding told reporters that Vicky White shot herself before officials were able to take her into custody. Casey White, meanwhile, was arrested without incident, although he told investigators later that the pair were prepared to engage in a shootout with police.
