7:03 am
marshals involved in the case in just a moment. but first, let's go to alex perez in evansville, indiana, where casey white is being held right now. good morning, alex. >> yeah, good morning. casey white is back behind bars and held at the county jail, and his capture a dramatic one. this morning vicky white, former alabama corrections officer who went on the run with fugitive casey white is dead after going on the run and the 11-day nationwide manhunt is back in jail. >> we have dangerous murder back behind bars and he is no longer on the run. h will never see light of day again. >> reporter: the scene chaotic as they narrowed in evansville, indiana, about 219 miles away from where they disappeared in florence, alabama, after their cover blown when a citizen saw them at a hotel and authorities quickly responding and leading to a
7:04 am
dramatic pursue ending in a wreck. >> we could hear that she had her finger on the trigger. female is still armed. >> reporter: the female shot herself, and casey white still injured on the case but expected to survive. >> we can't clarify that until we speak to him. the vehicle had a date of may 3rd. we were lucky we stumbled upon them today. >> reporter: investigators were looking into a tip that the two were spotted in this pickup at this car wash on may 3rd. it was days earlier on april 29th when authorities say vicki, a 17-year veteran of the lauderdale sheriff's department helped to spring him from jail putting nim the back of the patrol car before ditching for it the ford edge which would be abandon and found in tennessee. the state of alabama had earlier filed criminal charges against vicki for purchasing that used car under a fake name. second degree forgery and identity theft.
7:05 am
>> you're a sworn officer, you have taken an oath to uphold to law, and when you violate that law and help a person escape you have violated the laws of society. you broke all the rules that you basically were hired to protect. >> reporter: vicki and casey white who are not related are set to have developed a romantic relationship that started with casey as an inmate at the lauderdale detention center since 2020, and overnight, the defense attorney speaking overnight. >> casey is not a big time forward thinking when it comes to his crimes or his actions. this was thought out thoroughly, the escape, the changing of vehicles multiple times and my assumption is almost all of of that had to have been vicky white. >> reporter: authority in alabama questioning how one of their own fellow members of law enforcement turned on them. >> what prompted her to pull a
7:06 am
stunt like this, i don't know. i don't know if we will ever know. >> reporter: and authorities have not said why they turned up here or if they have ties here and investigators working to figure out what they did over the last ten days. robin? >> so many unanswered questions. >> thank you. and we are joined by deputy u.s. marshal chad punt and mark healy. gentlemen, thank you both for being here. commander hunt, if i may start with you. vicky white died of a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound. how was it reported that it was self-inflicted, sir? >> at this time when we made the arrest yesterday afternoon and when we were taking casey white into custody, upon his surrender he said, help my wife, she just shot herself. that is what we are basing it on, and right now there is an ongoing investigation to determine it on, but that is the
7:07 am
information we received from casey white. >> and since the pending arrest, has casey white made any statements about that since the jailbreak or their time on the run? >> to my knowledge, he has not made additional statements, and i am sure that the investigators will follow up in indiana and also when he returns back to lauderdale county. >> and the sheriff's office said that a vehicle connected to the case was located there in evansville last week. can you tell us more about that? >> sure. when we located the orange ford edge, our investigators were able to determine that casey an vicky purchased another vehicle out of tennessee, and a short time later this past saturday and sunday, we were able to find that blue f-150, and then we started to work the investigation in that area, and
7:08 am
obviously we were able to verify the footage that it was casey white in the ford f-150, and from that point forward we were able to put the pieces together, and identify this cadillac that they were in yesterday afternoon. >> can either of you tell us how the police were able to locate them yesterday and how did the chase unfold? >> they were located through, just policework, good policework, with all of the agencies involved. we also had some information, tips that came forward and we certainly want to thank the public for giving us those tips, but we had obtain information after they had obtained the vehicle that they had possibly gotten into a beige 2006 cadillac. we dispatched our people into the area of the car wash and observed the vehicle at a hotel. >> commander hunt, we heard in alex perez's report just then
7:09 am
that vicky white's law enforcement background may have helped them to be on the run for so long, and it was well thought out, and is that the case and any new information of why a career law enforcement officer may have done something like this? >> i think that we all wish we knew the answer to that, but yes, based on her experience in the corrections industry and law enforcement, yes, this is a well thought out escape, and obviously her preplanning and her involvement aided in the evasion for 11 days. >> and so what now with casey white? a violent criminal and suspected murder now back in custody and what happens now? >> he'll be returned to lauderdale county where he'll have an arraignment, and at that particular time what the sheriff
7:10 am
has told me is that he is going to be moved to the department of corrections. >> gentlemen, thank you for your time this morning and of course for the work that you both do. appreciate it very much. please take care. >> thank you. >> george. >> robin, we are getting to the latest on the war in ukraine. president zelenskyy is saying that the country going to celebrate a celebration day over russia making some gains. ian panel is on the scene. good morning, ian. >> yes, good morning, george. more heavy russian air strikes as moscow is trying repeatedly to crush through the ukrainian defenses as they are trying to make a significant headway as they are doubling down. >> reporter: in the latest the air strikes in the key port city of odesa. and now in dombas in the east seen some of the heaviest fighting, the u.s. is calling the fighting there crucial warning that the fighting on the ground is dynamic. >> literally some villages and towns changing hands sometimes within a day or so. >> reporter: but in the east, the russian invasion is going backwards and ukrainian soldiers

7:16 am
could pursue a federal ban of abortion if they take control of congress. the white house is sounding the >> we're at serious risk. you noted mitch mcconnell and other republicans are talking about a national ban on a woman's right to choose. >> reporter: in 24 hours the democrats are going to force a vote to protect a woman's right to choose which is certain to fail. senator lisa murkowski who said she would support the legislation says she is a no. if "roe versus wade" is overturned as the draft suggests 26 states would ban or severely restrict access to abortion. and democratically-run states like connecticut and others are setting up access from other states. and now, over to covid, some of the numbers in the rising some experts fear the numbers could be even higher.

8:32 am
and i looked up at michael and said, boy, they sleep tight, don't they? >> how did the 49 years of therapy go after that? >> that's the thing is i had no idea until i saw him at his daughter leslie's wedding like 25 years later when he said, i have to tell you something. remember the rabbits? and i said, yeah, he said, they were actually dead. and all i thought was, thank you for not telling me then. you're right because i would not have been age to do my job. >> are you still in touch with anyone from the show? >> we're all -- the remaining surviving cast members still communicate regularly, fortunately with social media, and we're sort of able to email each other and we support each other and everyone, you know, they'll write a book and we all turn out for it. it's kind of -- it's great. it's really great. it's like a second family. >> and you left hollywood. you live upstate new york. >> uh-huh.
8:33 am
>> so what's it been like to leave hollywood for upstate life? >> well, there was a little place in between, though. we spent five years in michigan, in a very rural part of michigan before we came to new york, so i was already sort of on my way to finding this sweeter, simpler more comfortable life. i had to get out of los angeles to actually age which i wanted to do. i'm excited about this. i love all these changes and watching what's happening and getting to know this new person and i also feel so much stronger and i feel like i've really earned my opinions and i know what i don't want in life which is a bigger deal than knowing what you do. so going from michigan to here for work, back to new york city, we knew we wanted an escape and we found this rundown hunting cabin in the middle of 14 acres and set about restoring it ourselves and did a lot of the work our own selves. i just got the dirt out from under my fingernails. >> when you say we. >> myself and my husband tim busfield. >> who wrote the foreword. >> he did. he did. >> you all found love after -- >> later in life. >> how is that different when you find it later in life?

8:40 am
my mom's tupperware, usually an empty cool whip container. >> that joke took me over the top. what i like is not only did filipino americans relate to it but then everyone was relating to it. >> reporter: the 50-year-old is no overnight success story doing stand-up for 25 years before his big break. >> there were people that opened for me that were getting specials. i'm like, what is it that i'm doing wrong that i'm not getting looked at? like what is it? >> did you ever ask yourself, is it because i'm asian american. >> of course, that was in my mind. >> reporter: koy finally broke through with his hit netflix special "live from seattle." >> my mom cured everything with vick's vaporub. vick's vaporub. >> reporter: now hollywood has come calling, his film "easter sunday" opens in theaters in august. >> "easter sunday" is like the filipino super bowl. >> there he is. >> welcome home, bro.

>> reporter: koy says he wants to use his success to inspire other comics of color. >> when i found out rob schneider was half filipino, i can be a comedian too because he made it. that means i can make it. because it's hard. trying not to cry right now. but it's just like that's what you want, right, you want to inspire. it's like we're here. we're all here. >> that's what i'm talking about. >> reporter: but 30 years ago, koy was inspired by this groundbreaking performer. margaret cho was already paving the way starring in her own sitcom. >> look at me. i'm middle management barbie. >> reporter: one of very few asian faces in stand-up. >> actually i wasn't on real "star search" but "star search international." they had a real problem with me because i looked this way but i talk this way. [ laughter ] >> reporter: the groundbreaking star sitting down with us at flappers comedy club near hollywood. in so many ways you were so ahead of your time. >> i think it was just i was more interested in pursuing my
8:42 am
own dream of being a stand-up comedian than what i was doing in a world that lacked other representation. >> reporter: cho's bold spin on being korean american made it okay to laugh at sensitive subjects. >> i think white people want to tell asian people how to feel about race because they're too scared to tell black people. >> reporter: cho said she loves what stand-up looks like today. >> i'm excited at seeing so many different asian american comedians now. my greatest achievement isn't really my work as it stands on its own but it's the fact that i influenced an entire generation to pursue their dream in stand-up comedy. >> reporter: and she really has. okay, so another story that stood out to me, jo koy told us he had had to foot the bill to shoot his first show.
8:43 am
netflix finally picked it up, but he had to make that investment, but it's investments like that that helped the next generation. >> glad he did it. let's go to ginger. >> you know, it is time for the season to move north and when i talk about the season i'm talking about severe weather so if you want baseball size hail you can go to minnesota where they had that bounce there. that's golf ball probably sized hail but up to 3-inch hail reported and new severe weather threat. not only today, but thursday, it really opens up in north drew: your accuweather forecast, upper 50's to lower 60's today. the chains of an isolated shower in the north bay this afternoon, drier and warmer by the end of the week. summerlike weather on up next, we'll serve up two of our united states barbecues. cecilia vega in washington, d.c. for this morning's competition. ♪ let the good times roll ♪ titi.
