Newly released surveillance video appears to show missing Alabama corrections officer Vicky White leaving the Lauderdale County Detention Center Friday morning with the fugitive suspected murderer Casey Cole White walking behind her in leg shackles and handcuffs.

The shocking escaped, allegedly faciliated by the jail’s assistant director of corrections, kicked off a days long manhunt.

The video shows a marked patrol vehicle backing up to a jailhouse door before a woman matching Vicky White’s description, blonde hair and standing about who stands at 5 feet, 5 inches tall, exits the driver’s side and walks into the facility.

Roughly a minute later, she comes back outside, followed by the suspected killer, who stands 6 feet, 9 inches tall.

CASEY WHITE ESCAPE: TIMELINE FOR ALABAMA MURDER SUSPECT ON THE RUN WITH CORRECTIONS OFFICER

It is timestamped 9:30 a.m. on April 29, 2022, just minutes before investigators say the two Whites, who are not related, drove away from the jail.

Casey White is wearing handcuffs and leg shackles as Vicky White opens the back door and lets him into the vehicle. She returns to the driver’s seat and slowly departs.

Surveillance cameras inside recorded Vicky White opening a steel door and, without looking back, holding it for Casey White, who slips out with his head down, dodging it as it swings closed. The two vanish through what looks like an exterior door with a car parked outside.
