Kinda off topic but not so much...
Reminds me of what the Nurse Manager at the first DOC camp I worked at used to remind us at the monthly staff meetings:

"We come here to make the money, not to find a honey." o_Oo_Oo_O

Assistant Director of Corrections Vicki White was the employee who left the jail with inmate Casey Cole White. The office noted the two have no relation.

The vehicle the two left the detention center in has been located in a parking lot of a local shopping center. Investigators are currently attempting to locate any video in the area which may tell more about what happened.

Another update is expected from the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Office by 9:30 p.m. Friday.

Lauderdale County District Attorney Chris Connolly says the FBI is assisting with this search as are other state and local authorities.

“I am extremely, extremely concerned that he is not in custody,” said Connolly. “This is a very dangerous situation.”

WAFF 48 is told the two did not have a reason to be out of jail on Friday.

I don't get the last sentence. Wasn't Vicki taking him to court?

There are only 2 scenarios I can think of right now. 1. He forced her to help him escape or 2. They became lovers and she helped him to escape. Either one is extremely scary. I hope she is found unhurt! JMO

The News Courier reported in April 2019 that Casey White had been sentenced to 75 years in prison after his conviction for two counts of first-degree kidnapping and attempted murder. He was accused of trying to kill his ex-girlfriend and kidnapping her two roommates. He also was convicted of first-degree robbery, first-degree and third-degree burglary, burglary of a vehicle, animal cruelty for shooting a dog and attempting to elude.

He faced capital murder charges in the 2015 murder-for-hire slaying of Connie Ridgeway. She was found dead in her Meadowland Apartments home. Charges in the case were brought in September 2020, WAFF TV reported.

Lauderdale County CO and the capital murder suspect are missing

LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Ala. (WAFF) - Casey Cole White appeared in a Lauderdale County Courtroom today.

While in prison, he confessed to the cold case murder of Connie Ridgeway according to authorities.


He asked if he could stay at the Lauderdale County Jail instead of going back to prison. Authorities say that White was actually plotting to escape the Lauderdale County Jail.

“We got information yesterday that he had made a shank and he intended to escape today and take a hostage,” said Lauderdale County District Attorney, Chris Connolly…

“Our deputies did a great job. Found the shank and eliminated that threat this morning so we obviously aren’t equipped to house somebody like that for that long term in our jail so we are happy that the judge ordered him to go back to the department of corrections,” said Connolly.

I was just about to post the same article, re the 75 year sentence.

The News Courier reported in April 2019 that Casey White had been sentenced to 75 years in prison after his conviction for two counts of first-degree kidnapping and attempted murder. He was accused of trying to kill his ex-girlfriend and kidnapping her two roommates. He also was convicted of first-degree robbery, first-degree and third-degree burglary, burglary of a vehicle, animal cruelty for shooting a dog and attempting to elude.

Update: In 2020 he planned an escape by taking a hostage:
“We got information yesterday that he had made a shank and he intended to escape today and take a hostage,” said Lauderdale County District Attorney, Chris Connolly.
He says that they found two shanks in the shower belonging to white before the arraignment. During the arraignment, White pleaded not guilty to both charges by reason of insanity.

I think she is in grave danger, even if she did help him escape.

From reading about him, he would think nothing of getting rid of anyone.


It's the retirement thing that made me think she may helped him.

Yes. You have to wonder why she would risk losing her retirement (pension?)
for a criminal. That's the only reason that gives me pause -- that she wasn't involved with him and willingly helping him. But, as we know, love is blind . . . (If that's the case here.) IMO.

Also, wouldn't he be in cuffs and she would be armed -- ?
