But we know for a fact that she was involved,” Singleton said.

White had last been seen Friday when she said she was taking Casey Cole White, who was being held on murder charges, for a mental health evaluation at the county courthouse.

Vicky White sold her house in February 2022, a day before Casey White returned to the jail where he worked for upcoming court appearances. In addition, he had talked about retiring for the past several months and turned in paperwork for him on Thursday, Singleton told ABC News. Friday, the date on which the two disappeared, was going to be his last day of work.

Casey White previously planned an escape from the Lauderdale County Detention Center in the fall of 2020, but officials foiled the plot before he could even try. Officials found out they found a homemade knife in his possession and learned that he planned to take a hostage. White was transferred to a state prison, where he remained until earlier this year, when he returned to the Lauderdale County facility to appear in court on the murder charge.
