The waitlist is growing at an Indiana motel as true-crime fans are lining up to stay in the room where escaped murder suspect Casey White and fugitive jail guard Vicky White were holed up for part of their 11 days on the run.
Dozens of people have put their names on a waitlist, hoping to rent the Motel 41 room where the Whites – who were not related but were having an affair – had stayed after fleeing from Lauderdale County Detention Center in Florence, Alabama.
An anonymous motel clerk said there were at least 70 names on the list of people wanting to stay in the room as of Monday afternoon. A room at the Evansville, Indiana, motel typically costs $63, but that specific room had jumped in price to between $75 and $100 since the couple stayed there.
Casey White and 56-year-old Vicky White had been holed up in the Evansville, Indiana, Motel 41 for days before their capture on May 9.
Law enforcement officers had been surveilling the motel on May 9 after learning of the couple’s possible whereabouts, when they spotted the pair get into a Cadillac and leave. The couple then led police on a mile-long chase before U.S. Marshals “basically rammed the vehicle and pushed it into a ditch,” Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding said after the chase.
Wedding said Vicky White fatally shot herself after their vehicle was intercepted by law enforcement.
