US Marshals believe an abandoned dark blue 2006 Ford F-150 (pictured below) found in Evansville, Indiana may be linked to an Alabama corrections officer and a murder suspect she helped escape a Lauderdale County prison a week and a half ago.

Vicki White, 55, and inmate Casey White (no relation) had a “special” relationship, according to a fellow prison inmate.
Casey White was charged with two counts of capital murder in September 2020 for stabbing a woman to death.
Surveillance footage released this week shows Vicki White opening the door and allowing accused murderer Casey White (stands at 6’9″) to exit the prison.
The orange 2007 Ford Edge the two were reportedly traveling (pictured below) in was found in Williamson County in Bethesda, Tennessee on April 29, but it wasn’t until late Thursday night that law enforcement made the connection to the fugitives.
According to District Attorney Chris Connolly, Vicki White withdrew $90,000 in cash from multiple banks and sold a house for $95,000 before disappearing.
According to reports, investigators believe a dark blue 2006 Ford F-150 stolen in Tennessee after the Whites abandoned the orange/copper getaway car found in Evansville, Indiana may be linked to the fugitives.
WAAY 31 reported:
U.S. Marshals and law enforcement in Evansville, Indiana, are working to determine if a vehicle discovered there is part of the Casey White and Vicky White search.
They believe it is connected to the escape of Casey White and Vicky White, and that it may be a vehicle reported stolen from the area in Tennessee where the Ford Edge they left Florence in was found, according to a law enforcement official in Evansville and the U.S. Marshals Service.
U.S. Marshals investigators were notified Sunday night that a 2006 Ford F-150 had been discovered at Weinbach Car Wash in the 2000 block of South Weinbach Avenue in Evansville. Surveillance footage from the car wash also appears to show Casey White, but that has not been confirmed.
Sheriff Dave Wedding of the Vanderburgh County, Indiana, Sheriff’s Office told ABC News the vehicle was abandoned “on or around May 3.” He said it does not have Indiana license plates, and the Sheriff’s Office said that there is currently no evidence to suggest that the vehicle was stolen. If purchased, Wedding believes it may have been bought out of state.
