After an 11-day long manhunt for Casey White and Vicky White, Alabama authorities arrested the two fugitives after a brief police chase in Evansville, Indiana Monday.

Shortly later, 56-year-old Vicky White died at a local hospital from a “very

serious” self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

According to law enforcement accounts, the 38-year-old inmate told arresting cops that his “wife” Vicky White had shot herself as they caught up to them.
