“An arrest warrant has been issued for a missing Alabama corrections officer now believed to have assisted a jailed murder suspect escape custody four days ago, authorities confirmed on Monday. At a press conference, Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton confirmed an arrest warrant has been issued for 56-year-old Assistant Director of Corrections Vicky White on a charge of permitting or facilitating an escape in the first degree. ‘We know she participated — now whether she did that willing or if she was coerced, threatened somehow to have participated in this escape, not really sure,’ he told reporters Monday. ‘But we know for sure she did participate.’ Investigators obtained new video showing the patrol vehicle in which White and inmate Casey White left the detention center in on Friday morning, Singleton said.” (05/02/22)
