The story of Vicky White and Casey White, (no relation), has captured the attention of America this week as law enforcement continues their intense manhunt for the unlikely pair of criminals.
Vicky, a corrections officer from Alabama, removed Casey White, (a felon), from jail last week on what was to be her last day on the job. The excuse was that Casey White was due for a mental health exam outside of the prison.
But, as soon as the pair could, they ditched the police cruiser for a pedestrian SVU and took off running.

Lauderdale County District Attorney Chris Connolly last spoke with Vicky White the day before she disappeared and said he was “absolutely stunned” to learn of the situation. Connoly described the officer as “the most solid person at the jail.”
“I am so disappointed in her,” he said. “She was trusted, and she exploited that trust.”
Vicky White’s mother, who she had been living with for the past five weeks after selling her home, said she never heard her daughter mention Casey White and was shocked to find out she had gone missing with an accused murderer.
“As a mother, I didn’t know how to act because I thought at first it was a mistake. And then when I found out for sure it was, it was just disbelief,” Pat Davis told CNN affiliate WAAY.
Vicky was set to retire the next day, and had also sold her house just prior to the escape.
