A MYSTERY 911 call made from Vicky White’s getaway because as she fled with her alleged lover may have been solved by web sleuths.
Cops said former prison guard Vicky, 56, shot herself as she and murder suspect Casey White, 38, were captured by police on Monday in Evansville, Indiana.
The pair broke out of Lauderdale County jail in Alabama on April 29 before being found 11 days later after a manhunt.
Vicky was the mastermind behind the jailbreak to free Casey, according to Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton.
Police recordings revealed some of Vicky’s final words to Casey as cops were closing in on the couple’s vehicle.
She said: “Airbags are going off. Let’s get out and run.”
And Vicky appeared to blame her alleged lover for staying in a motel.
She ranted: “You had to stay in some f***ing motel.”
Police have said it was Vicky who called 911 according to CNN but it is unclear why the call was made in the first place.
Internet sleuths have now claimed an Onstar emergency system could have been activated in the car during the police pursuit.
If an air bag is set off in a car installed with OnStar, attempts will be made to call the driver – and if they don’t answer, the emergency services will be contacted.
There is also a red button inside the car which allows OnStar to locate the vehicle and contact the nearest emergency service provider.
One Reddit user said: “I don’t think either of them made the 911 call, from that small piece of audio.
“The car may have had some kind of Onstar service that automatically calls when you crash.”
Another wrote: “You can hear the 911 operator a few times but Casey and Vicky do not respond, at least it seems they don’t.
“Some speculating if phone hooked up to because it could be Onstar?”
Others said they don’t believe Vicky shot herself on purpose – and it might have been an accident.
One said: “Actually after re-listening to this audio, it does not at all sound like she wanted to die.
“But her statement of ‘we could just get out and run’ is indicative of someone clearly not in touch with reality and not in a right or rational state of mind.
“She was in an panic but also in survival mode. So who knows. What a mystery.”
Another said: “Sounds like she maybe shot herself accidentally while trying to find a way out of the car? She seemed very afraid to die because of airbags or someone killing them.”
A third asked: “It’s weird cause it seems like she says ‘don’t kill us’ but then shoots herself? Strange to me.”
A fourth said: “Very strange call. She didn’t sound like she wanted to shoot herself, at least not in that call. You can clearly hear her talking about the airbags deploying which means they had just crashed.”
Cops managed to capture the pair after an officer ran the plates on a vehicle that they saw parked at Motel 41 – located on the outskirts of Evansville.
Investigations revealed that the car had been stolen.
Loud pops could also be heard in the audio footage before it cut out.
Cops rammed their vehicle, causing it to flip, and officers discussed how to retrieve Vicky from the wreckage.
Officers discussed smashing the windshield as a potential option before it was ruled out.
An officer asked if anyone had a “Hooligan” – which appeared to be a reference to a Halligan, a tool that’s normally used by officers to force entry into a property.
One cop is heard saying: “I’m gonna go for the gun” before pulling Vicky, who was unresponsive, out of the sunroof.
First responders then tried to administer aid to Vicky, who was lying on the grass.
Vicky died hours later in hospital and her body has since been returned to Alabama, NewsNation reported.
‘NOT SMART ENOUGH’
Lauderdale County Sheriff Mr Singleton told NewsNation that he doesn’t believe Casey is “smart enough to plan” the jailbreak.
Casey’s criminal history dates back more than 10 years.
In March 2016, he was convicted on seven criminal counts that included robbery and attempted murder.
He was sentenced to 75 years behind bars on those charges and had been serving his time in Alabama when Vicky helped him escape.
In 2020, he allegedly confessed to the 2015 stabbing death of Connie Ridgeway, 59, and was charged with two counts of capital murder.
He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and was brought to the Lauderdale County’s detention center to attend a number of court hearings – which is where he met Vicky.
Despite what had been rumored, there was no trial run in the escape, as there was no evidence that Vicky took Casey out of the jail previously, Singleton said.
In an interview with CNNSingleton said Vicky was “in a position” to arrange the escape, scheduling the van transport in the morning and making sure all the other armed deputies were out of the building.
“She knew that the booking officer wasn’t going to question her, the assistant director, when she told her that she was going to take him to court and drop him off with other employees,” Singleton told the network.
“She arranged, purchased the getaway car, sold her house, she got her hands on cash, bought clothes for him, you know, she just obviously put the plan together.”
Casey’s lawyer agreed with Singleton’s theory, telling CNN: “There was no way that Casey planned this escape — it was too methodical, it was too planned out.”
