Based on the riveting true story which attracted international headlines, corrections officer Vicky White (Wendi-McLeandon-Covey) was a model employee until she finally found her match made in heaven and fell in love with the charming Casey White (no relation) (Rossif Sutherland) an accused murderer already serving a 75 year sentence for a 2015 crime spree, and inmate in the Lauderdale Detention Center in Alabama where Vicky worked as the Assistant Director of Corrections. On April 29, 2022, Vicky, a respected guard, and who had turned in her retirement papers only days before, said she was taking Casey for a psych evaluation. She left in her corrections department cruiser that day with a shackled Casey and disappeared. At first, law enforcement officials believed that Casey had kidnapped Vicky, and that she was in great danger. Video surveillance footage showed the opposite. Vicky switched cars in a nearby parking lot, freed Casey from his shackles, and brought civilian clothes for him to change into. Before they sped off together, the couple was observed kissing on the surveillance footage.
Vicky and Casey went on the run for 11 days across several states, with Vicky often wearing a dark wig to hide her blonde hair. Several law enforcement agencies were tracking them, including the US Marshals. After a tip from a car wash owner in Evansville, Indiana, US Marshals discovered their Cadillac parked outside a motel. On the morning they checked out of the motel, law enforcement closed in. After a short pursuit through an industrial park, Vicky and Casey’s Cadillac was rammed and overturned in a ditch by the road. Casey was pulled from the disabled vehicle and Vicky took her own life as officers closed in.
