Former Alabama corrections officer and fugitive Vicky White died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a chase with authorities in Indiana Monday afternoon, according to the Vanderburgh County Coroner's Office.
Vicky White and jail escapee Casey White were captured in Evansville after disappearing from a jail on April 29, according to Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton.
Authorities said the pair was captured after a chase with U.S. Marshals and local law enforcement ended in a crash.
Vicky White was driving the vehicle during the chase and Casey White was a passenger, according to Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding.
The fugitives are believed to have been in Evansville since at least May 3.

Authorities said the chase only lasted a few minutes and began after the two were located at a hotel near Highway 41 south of St. George Road.
Sheriff Wedding said a car believed to be driven by the pair was spotted near a local sheriff's office. When authorities arrived in the area, the vehicle fled.
Casey White surrendered, but Vicky White reportedly shot herself and was taken to a hospital for treatment, according to Sheriff Wedding. Her condition was unknown at the time, but her injuries were referred to as "very serious."
Casey White is expected to extradited back to Alabama to face charges.
When asked about Vicky White's injuries before her death, Sheriff Singleton said he hopes she survives so she can provide answers.
"I hope she survives it...We don't wish any ill will on Vicky in terms of her health or well-being, but she has some answers to give us and hopefully we'll have an opportunity to get those answers," said Sheriff Singleton.
