EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WAFF) - The 911 call that Vicky White made moments before the Cadillac she was riding in with Casey White was hit by police officers has been released.

In the audio released by investigators, you will hear Vicky’s final words, once she realized her escape plan was coming to an end. Vicky White can be heard saying, “Casey. Airbags are going off. Let’s get out and run. We should’ve stayed in the (expletive) hotel.”

This is a portion of Vicky White's 911 call that she made while she and Casey White were pursued by police in Indiana on May 9.

The audio is coming from Vicky and Casey White’s third and final getaway car, during the massive police chase that ended in the rollover crash right in front of an Evansville manufacturing plant.

The call gives us some insight into what was happening in the car during that chase, but it raises new questions too. Vicky never speaks directly to the 911 dispatcher, or answers any questions. She eventually shot herself in the head. An official with the United States Marshals confirmed Casey White was driving during the chase and told officers to “check on my wife” as he was being arrested.

It was confirmed by the Vanderburgh County Coroner on Tuesday that Vicky White died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Her cause of death was ruled a suicide.

Vicky White’s body is back in Alabama. She will be buried Saturday at Center Hill Cemetery in Lexington, according to her obituary released by Greenhill Funeral Home. Casey’s murder trial is set for June. For now, he’s in prison in Jefferson County.
