In the wake of his 10-day evasion — made possible with the help of correctional officer Vicky White, who died by suicide during a police chase — more details have emerged about how the pair managed to survive for more than a week under stay off the radar.
Dramatic police footage captured the moment a nationwide manhunt ended in Indiana earlier this week after White, a prisoner serving a 75-year sentence for attempted murder, was arrested and the body of his 56-year-old lover, Mrs. White, was recovered from a car wreckage was pulled. She died of what a coroner said was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

GoFundMe page raises over $3,300 for #CarWashJames seen by Vicky White
James Stinson, an Indiana car wash worker, noticed something funny about a truck that had been left behind on work days.
“I saw that the car was hanging out of the bay, which was unusual. He stayed there… Every time I left and came back, the truck was still there,” Stinson told News Nation.
Stranger still, the truck had Tennessee license plates, which seemed odd to him.
“I walked up to the truck and said, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s probably this guy from Alabama,'” he added.
He called the police and the tip eventually reached the US Marshals Service, leading to the Vicky and Casey White being taken prisoner in the town of Evansville, Indiana, after a chase.
Now, a GoFundMe page for Mr Stinson, known to some as #CarWashJames, has raised $3,316 of a $25,000 total goal.
The page was hosted by Mark White, who says he is a “friend and advocate” of the family of Connie Ridgeway, a woman Casey White confessed to murdering in 2015.
“Since that day, we’ve been seeking justice for Connie,” White wrote. “After talking to Connie’s son, Austin, we decided we would set up our own fundraiser.”
