EVANSVILLE. Ind. — Indiana police released footage Tuesday that included the arrest of Casey White, the north Alabama capital murder suspect who was on the lam for more than a week with former Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office Assistant Director of Corrections Vicky White, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after authorities closed in on the pair.

Along with Casey White’s apprehension, Evansville, Ind., police also released footage of officers inspecting what was identified at the time as a suspicious Ford F-150 abandoned at a Evansville car wash and another video of first responders rendering aid to Vicky White.

In dash cam footage released by Evansville police, several officers are seen subduing Casey White and handcuffing him beside the Cadillac wrecked by Vicky White after she drove the vehicle into a ditch.

Two officers then bend the restrained White over a police car to search him for weapons, his button-down blue shirt in tatters.

Casey White appears to say something to the officers, but his words were not recorded by the dash cam.

Evansville police also released video of officers conducting a search of the F-150, which was later identified as the truck abandoned by the pair.

In the video where first responders pulled Vicky White from the wrecked Cadillac, a law enforcement officer urges his colleagues to be careful after noticing that she was still holding the gun in her hand that authorities say she used to shoot herself.

An officer is then shown taking the gun out of Vicky White’s hand. The video pixelated her face and body.

Casey White waived extradition to Lauderdale County and is expected to be arraigned Tuesday night, according to the sheriff’s office.
