Day 6: U.S. Marshals Continue to
Pursue Leads in Hunt for Alabama Fugitives
Reward up to $10,000 for escapee wanted for Capital Murder,
$5,000 for Correctional Officer who helped him
AL – The U.S. Marshals Service is offering up to
$10,000 for information leading to the
capture of an escaped inmate from Lauderdale County Jail and up to
$5,000 for the correctional officer
who authorities believe helped him escape April 29 from Lauderdale
Investigators have learned that during
pre-sentence reporting in 2015 he made threats against his ex-girlfriend
and her sister, warning that if he ever got out, he would kill them and
that he wanted police to kill him. USMS and local law enforcement
authorities have been in contact with his potential targets to advise
them of the threats and the escape and have taken appropriate protective
actions. Investigators with Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office have also
recently learned through inmate interviews that the jail official and
the inmate had developed a “special” relationship.
The subjects should be considered dangerous and may be armed with an AR-15 rifle, handguns and a shotgun. These are actual photos of the vehicle they are believed to be in.
Law enforcement-sensitive information about the vehicle was accidentally released on social media May 3, which led some internet sleuths to the Florence car dealer who sold the vehicle to Vicky White. Some Facebook users have leveled accusations of wrongdoing against the owners of that dealership. The U.S. Marshals would like to assure everyone that the owners have been very helpful in this investigation, and that no one at the dealership is suspected of helping the pair avoid law enforcement.
