How Dog the Bounty Hunter catches Casey and Vicki White

(NewsNation) – An escaped Alabama prisoner and a corrections officer have been on the loose for a week, but Dog the Bounty Hunter thinks it’s only a matter of time before they’re caught.

“When you have a felon like that and a cop on the run, neither of them has experience running,” he said Thursday on “NewsNation Special Coverage.”

Casey White and Vicki White, who are not related, left an Alabama prison on April 29. Vicki White said she was taking him for a mental health evaluation, but the two got into a police cruiser and have not been seen since.

It has since emerged that Vicki White sold her house well below market value and quit her job as a corrections officer. The police suspect that she was a voluntary part of Casey White’s escape.

Dog recommends checking AirBnBs and similar rental properties within 3,000 miles to see who has made long-term reservations.

“They probably rented an Airbnb for maybe 90 days because she will know that as a police officer you have to sink right now,” he said. “Things will calm down and calm down.”

Hiding is important, he adds, because their physical characteristics are distinct. Casey White is 6’9″ – a “dead giveaway”. He assumes that Vicki White does most of the shopping in disguise.

This is a high profile case, but fugitive lawsuits are common. US Marshals captured 84,247 fugitives last year.

Some escape capture. Eric Robert Rudolph, the Olympic Park suicide bomber, evaded capture for almost seven years. It took 17 years for the police to catch Ted Kaczynski, the so-called Unabomber.

But Dog is convinced that the attention given to this case means that it is only a matter of time.

“You never know who’s going to see you. Someone will spot them.
