Could the Movie Based on the Alabama Fugitives Captured in Evansville be Factual?
The scene played out like a Made-for-TV Movie. You know the kind, not big-screen interesting, and not quite Netflix quality. Just a little love story that went down the wrong path, jailbreaks, and of course someone dies.
Alabama Fugitives Make National News in Evansville, Indiana
The movie idea I'm talking about happened right here in Evansville back in May of this year. Casey White and Vicky Sue White (No relation) ended their tragic love story on Highway 41, after staying in room 150 at Motel 41. It turns out, this is a straight-to-streaming movie, so I'm sure it is of the highest quality. Yes, their story is already a movie on Tubi. This leaves me with so many questions.

Will This Impact Casey White's Trials?
Casey White's part of this story isn't over yet. He is scheduled to stand trial for the felony murder of Vicky White on April 17, 2023. Alabama law allows this felony charge even though the coroner's office stated that Vicky Sue White's death was a suicide.
His second trial is for the capital murder of Connie Ridgeway. His trial date is set for June 2023.
Will Room 150 be Properly Credited?
This was the room the Whites lived in during their time in Evansville. It was so popular that the front desk couldn't keep up with reservations and later removed the number from the door.
Will the Car Wash Owner be Featured?
I mean James Stinson's part in this real-life saga may not have anything to do with this movie's plot. James is the owner of the Evansville car wash where a vehicle that was later connected to this case was found. He did not receive the $5,000 reward money, but a GoFundMe was set up just for him.
