Former prison boss Vicky White ranted at her beau Casey White and told her to “take us back to the hotel f—-” as the cops caught up to them, the audio reveals.
After the clumsy duo Bonnie and Clyde’s Cadillac was rammed by the cops, Vicky turned to the capital murder suspect and yelled, “The airbags are going to go off and kill us!”
“Take us back to the p—- hotel!” she screamed.
She was apparently referring to Motel 41 in Evansville, where Vanderburgh County Sheriff David Wedding said he paid a local homeless man to rent a room.
After her explosion, Vicky turned the gun on herself as the cops burst in. His death was ruled a suicide.
Police dash cam video captured the frantic moments Casey, an Alabama convict and capital murder suspect, was arrested following the savage police chase.
Vicky was still breathing and holding the gun when cops arrived at the vehicle, which flipped onto its side after being rammed.
“She still has the gun in her hands,” an officer said. “The finger is on the trigger.”
Deputy Marshal Chad Hunt, commander of the regional Gulf Coast Fugitive Task Force, said Casey quickly surrendered.
“His immediate words to our team were, ‘Please help my wife. She just shot herself in the head,” Hunt told reporters, though authorities said there was no evidence the two were married.
Meanwhile, the deputy chief of the Evansville Police Department responded to questions posted on social media about how long it took officers to reach Vicky.
“Well, you don’t know how much of the damage came from that self-inflicted gunshot wound, and you have a suspect with a gun still in hand,” Phil Smith told WAAY. “You’re basically dealing with a barricaded suspect at this point. Even though they’re inside a car at this point, they’re still armed.
Authorities said Casey admitted to planning a shootout with police — a “suicide by a cop” situation that investigators say was foiled by the wreckage, according to the outlet.
Smith said the self-inflicted shooting scene was “emotionally shocking.”
One of the officers, who had only been with the force for a few years, pulled the fatally injured woman from the vehicle and began administering first aid, he said.
“Everyone knew Casey and Vicky White, and despite what we knew about them, we’re very proud of our officer who went to do this job on Vicky White,” Smith told WAAY. “Sorry it ended like this for her, but she chose this path, and we’ll never know why.”
Meanwhile, funeral arrangements have been announced for Vicky, who will be buried at 1 p.m. Saturday at Center Hill Cemetery in Lexington, Alabama, according to an obituary posted by Greenhill Funeral Home.
