Escaped Alabama inmate Casey White has a collection of tattoos associated with a white supremacist prison gang, officials revealed Thursday.
Casey White, 38, charged with capital murder and a slew of other crimes, was escorted out of prison last Friday by corrections officer Vicky White for a phony court appointment. The pair, who are not related but share a ‘special relationship,’ ran off together.
New images of Casey White released on Thursday reveal several tattoos associated with the white supremacist prison gang, Southern Brotherhood, the US Marshals said.
Casey White has a tattoo of a confederate flag and the words ‘Southern Pride’ across his back, as well as the Nazi SS logo on his chest. The inmate also has a sleeve on his right arm.
Officials also released photo rendering of what Vicky White may look like if she died her hair darker.
The 56-year-old corrections officer is now wanted on the charge of permitting or facilitating the escape of Casey White, who was serving a 75-year sentence for a series of violent crimes, including attempted murder and kidnapping.
In 2020, Casey White was charged with capital murder in the 2020 stabbing death of Connie Ridgeway.
The US Marshal said that Casey White, who is six foot six, should be considered ‘armed and extremely dangerous.’ The escaped inmate may have an AR-15 rifle, handguns and a shotgun.
Vicky White is five-foot-five and may have died her blonde hair a darker shade while on the run, the US Marshals said.
Casey and Vicky had a ‘special relationship’ for the past two years, according to investigators, who learned through interviewing inmates that Vicky would show Casey preferential treatment.
The corrections officer, who had been with the department for 17 years, told staff she was bringing Casey White to the county courthouse on Friday, but there was no appointment in the court’s schedule, and the two disappeared soon after they left.
Video released by officials shows the couple driving through town in a police vehicle. The two reportedly ditched the cop car in a shopping center parking lot less than 10 miles from the correction facility, and escaped in a gold or cooper-colored SUV.
Vicky White’s former co-workers are pleading with her to make a safe return.
‘Vicky, you’ve been in this business for 17 years, you’ve seen this scenario play out more than once and you know how it always ends,’ Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton told ABC News.
‘Go ahead and end it now. Get to a phone, call 911, turn yourself in and help us get Casey White back behind bars because you know that’s where he’s going to eventually end up.’
Up to $15,000 is being offered in exchange for information that may help officials locate the pair.
