Bodycam footage of chase involving Alabama fugitives, 911 call released
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Evansville Police Department has released body camera and dash-camera footage from Monday’s chase and crash involving two Alabama fugitives.
The video shows capital murder suspect and escapee Casey White being detained moments after the car crashed and corrections officer Vicky White apparently fatally shot herself.
This happened off of U.S. 41 near State Road 57 Monday afternoon.
EPD has released two more videos, including one from May 4 where officers say they investigated the car wash where they found the Ford F150 get-away car.
The other is of first responders delivering aide to Vicky White seconds after the crash.
Authorities believe that OnStar contacted authorities once they crashed.
Bodycam footage shows officers rushing to the crashed car, where Vicky was stuck inside.
The audio from the footage details how officers contemplated different ways to extract her from the car, eventually realizing the gun authorities say she used to shoot herself was still in her hand, with her finger still on the trigger.
Video shows officers exercising caution in removing the gun from Vicky’s hand, and then her body from the car.
Casey is seen being pulled from the car and then cuffed on the hood of an Evansville police car.
The 911 call between Vicky and a dispatcher reveals the moment the airbags went off, and you can hear Vicky contemplating getting out of the car and running.
In the call, you can also hear Vicky tell Casey that the pair should have stayed at the motel they were previously hiding in.
Below is Vicky White’s 911 call (Warning - the video contains explicit language. Some may find the audio disturbing):
