Vicky White seen at the Quality Inn before disappearing with Casey White

New video shows former Alabama prison boss Vicky White at a Quality Inn hours before she disappeared with convicted killer Casey White, as authorities downplayed speculation the huge inmate could traveling disguised as a woman in a wheelchair.

The 14-second clip, released on Saturday, shows blonde Vicky, dressed in a black sweatshirt, pacing near reception. White, who is not related to the inmate, stayed at the hotel for two nights before the escape, the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office said.

“We know she stayed there,” Sheriff Rick Singleton said. “It’s right next to the mall where she parked the getaway car and where she had parked the patrol car” that she used to drive Casey White away from jail.

Meanwhile, two officials involved in the couple’s hunt told the Post there was no evidence to support the local district attorney’s theory that Casey White, 6’9″ and 330 pounds, could travel disguised as a woman in a wheelchair.

“That’s news to me, I’ve never heard of him trying to dress differently,” said Chad Hunt, commander of the US Marshal Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Marty Keely, U.S. Marshal for Northern Alabama, called the theory “non-factual.”

“There are a million theories about what’s going on,” he added.

Lauderdale County, Alabama prosecutor Chris Connolly had speculated that Casey White might be dressed as a woman and pushed by Vicky White in a wheelchair to distract from her height, according to the Daily Mail. It has also been suggested that Vicky White might dress up as an elderly woman with a gray wig.

Hunt said a more likely scenario is that Casey White is wearing a hat to conceal his prison tattoos, which include two eyeballs on the back of his head and sunglasses. Vicky White probably changed the color of her previously shiny blonde hair, he said, which is why the agency circulated mock photos of her with black hair.

“We think she changed her appearance,” Hunt said.

U.S. Marshals told the Post they were scouring the area of ​​Tennessee where Vicky White dumped the getaway car she used to help Casey White escape.

The orange 2007 Ford Edge had been the focus of the search for the fugitives who disappeared on April 29, but authorities were unaware until Friday that the couple had abandoned the vehicle just hours after Vicky White got away from the county jail in Lauderdale, Alabama, with Casey White. .

The two are not related, but local officials said they had a “special relationship” for nearly two years.

The car was found locked and abandoned on the side of a rural road in College Grove, Tennessee, about two hours north of the jail.

Hunt said the discovery of the car, which had been in a car pound for a week before authorities collected the parts, was a “setback” that compounded the six to seven hour head start the fugitives had. had on law enforcement, but the agency is undeterred.

“We’ve been here before,” the law veteran said. “These little setbacks are just challenges for us. They are expected in this survey.

“And that certainly does not reduce our momentum in this investigation,” he added.

He previously told the Post that they “knew” the pair were heading to North Tennessee “for a specific reason.”

Hunt said they were going door to door in College Grove, looking for video footage from home or work security cameras that might show which direction the two went after they bailed out the car. Even a game camera set up in the surrounding woods could provide clues, he said.

The sheriff of Williamson County, Tennessee, where the SUV was discovered, tweeted Friday that “there is NO sign that the two are still in our area”.

They also follow hundreds of tips, especially those within a 100-200 mile radius of where the Edge was found. “The amount of tips we got in this case, I’ve never seen anything like it,” Hunt said.

Neither Hunt nor Keely would say what evidence, if any, was found in the Ford Edge.

“The car is processed,” Keely said.
