Casey White’s mother has revealed her son’s condition after the death of his lover, Vicky White, who apparently died of self-inflicted gunshot wounds. Connie Moore said that Vicky’s death has left the convicted felon heartbroken and he cried on a phone call to her. Moore told DailyMail.com, “They were just two people who really loved each other. It's just so sad and I worry [for Casey]. I spoke to him yesterday and he was crying and saying he couldn't believe she was gone.”

The 62-year-old mother spoke for the first time after her son was recaptured following a 11-day hunt by authorities that ended tragically with the death of Vicky, who was the assistant director of corrections at the Lauderdale County jail, from where they both fled together on April 29. Casey has now been placed at the maximum security William E. Donaldson Correctional Facility near Alabama’s Bessemer.

It has been said that when cops were arresting Casey on May 9, he pleaded with them to save Vicky while referring to her as his “wife”. His mother has now commented on it as well while saying: “Vicky was really, really, good to him – just being there for him, talking with him. They had a real thing. He was calling her his wife even when he was in prison. I just sort of went along with it, I didn't say, ‘You shouldn't’ or whatever. It made him happy.”

Moore also addressed speculations that it was Casey who shot Vicky. Slamming those rumors, she told DailyMail.com: “He's very upset. I know he loved her. He talked to me for over a year about how he had a friend, how nice she was and how he loved her. He never told me her name and I was shocked when I learned who it was, but he would never hurt her. I told the FBI and the Marshalls too that he would not hurt her.”

The woman went on to say: “I don't know what she was thinking [in the end]. They couldn't have got out and run, Casey couldn't run and where would he hide if he did?” before sending out a message to the deceased prison guard’s family: “I would just say I'm very sorry about it and from all that I've heard from Casey and from everyone she was a very good person. I just hate it with all my heart that it happened.”

Moore then claimed: “But Casey is not the monster that they've posted him to be. I think it's so sad that the comments that the whole world has made have made fun of both of them and a situation like this. I read a thousand comments, and nobody has a good word to say about any one of them. I didn't know who she was, but I know that they loved each other, and he talked about her.”

Casey’s mother also called Vicky a good woman he had in his life. “All of the women he's been with have emotional problems and Casey has a big heart and just wants to help people. The main thing for Casey has always been the drugs and the women. Growing up he was just a basic country kid. He was always tall, but nobody tried to pick a fight with Casey because of it. He was never violent but when there were drugs there, he would do them and it went from bad to worse.”

Moore added: “Vicky was a good person for him. I don't know what happened. I know that Casey wasn't the mastermind of anything. She was the brains; we know that for sure. I don't know if maybe she had given up on life. She just started writing him letters and it went from there. I think maybe she was infatuated with the idea of it and the idea of Casey. I don't know. All I know is it's sad and it was real.”
