Newly released video shows Alabama corrections officer at hotel morning of escape

Video footage released by authorities Saturday shows a missing former corrections officer at a hotel in Alabama the morning she reportedly helped an inmate escape.

The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office released the video. The office said it shows Vicky White checking out of a Quality Inn in Florence, Alabama, on April 29, the same day she is believed to have helped capital murder suspect Casey White flee the Lauderdale County Detention Center.

In the 14-second clip, Vicky White approaches the front counter at the hotel and leans over it, appearing to look for something. An employee is not at the counter.

NBC affiliate WAFF of Huntsville reported that Vicky White was at the hotel the morning she allegedly helped Casey White escape.

Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton said the hotel was near where the getaway car was parked. The car was later found abandoned.

Authorities said the pair left the jail for a purported mental health evaluation in court, but investigators learned that no such evaluation had been scheduled. Before she left, Vicky White told a booking officer that she was going to a medical appointment after she dropped off Casey White, who was awaiting trial after he confessed to the 2015 stabbing death of Connie Ridgeway.
