As reported earlier, the 11-day saga involving an Alabama prisoner that escaped with the help of a corrections officer came to a violent end.

Escaped inmate Casey White, 38, surrendered, while his jail house romance and corrections officer girlfriend Vicky White, 56, was found with a gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

It almost had a much more violent conclusion, according to police spokespeople.

A report by the Associated Press stated that Casey White told investigators after his capture “he was probably going to have a shootout at the stake of both of them losing their lives.”

The two were traveling with $29,000 in cash, four handguns and an AR-15 rifle. It backed up the claim that they were prepared for a shootout if they were captured.

At the time of his escape, Casey White was serving a 75-year prison sentence for attempted murder. He was also awaiting trial on additional, separate charges that he stabbed a woman to death during a 2015 burglary — a charge that would carry the death penalty with conviction.

For her part in the plot, Vicky White had recently put in for her retirement ahead of the escape, and scheduled her final day as the day of the escape.

Authorities were quick to maintain that she was not an innocent bystander, rather a willing participant.

“He was not forcing her. It was a mutual relationship,” the sheriff said.

The police caught up with the pair on Monday afternoon, more than a week after the escape. They had only made it just over 300 miles away, and had their car rammed into a ditch after a brief chase. 

Authorities believe that she shot herself, but will ask the coroner to make the final determination.
