After they eluded authorities for more than 10 days and made it about 300 miles north from Alabama to Indiana, the end came swiftly for former corrections officer Vicky White and the capital murder suspect she was accused of helping escape, Casey White.

Police found Vicky White and Casey White, who are not related, hiding out at a motel in Evansville, Indiana, where they had hunkered down for several days after fleeing together from an Alabama jail on April 29, according to Vanderburgh County, Indiana, Sheriff Dave Wedding.

In six different vehicles, police chased the pair for about 2 miles, with multiple law enforcement vehicles ramming the Cadillac sedan the couple were traveling in until it flipped onto its side in a ditch, Wedding said.

Shortly afterward, Vicky White fatally shot herself in the head, authorities said. 911 audio released Wednesday caught some of her last comments.

“Airbags are going off,” she is heard saying in the audio released by police. “Let’s get out and run. Should have stayed at the … hotel.”

Casey White was taken into custody after the crash.
