Evansville, Indiana made international news last month after two fugitives from Alabama were located right here in our little city. Why in the world Casey White and Vickey White (No relation) decided to rent room 150 at Motel 41 might always remain a mystery. One big question everyone has is who will get the reward money for the capture of Casey White.

The U.S. Marshals Service also offered up to $10,000 for information leading to the capture of Casey White. No decision has been announced about their reward.

District Attorney Chris Connolly recommended the person that Alabama Governor Ivey issued the $5,000 reward to. We don't know who this person is because they have chosen to be anonymous, but we do know that it was not James Stinson. James is the owner of the Evansville car wash where a vehicle that was later connected to this case was found.

Alabama Governor Ivey's Statement:

“Thanks to the good information from this citizen and the diligent work from law enforcement in Alabama all the way to Indiana, we were able to put the bad guy behind bars where he belongs. I look forward to justice being served."

What About James Stinson?

Plenty of folks on social media argue that James Stinson deserves the reward money for the capture of Casey White. In fact, a GoFundMe account has been set up in his name. As of June 3, 2022, has been raised $5,175

 Since car wash owner James Stinson had information that led law enforcement to the subjects we were searching for, we'd like to give Mr. Stinson some reward money. We hope that you will contribute and share this fundraiser as we continue to seek justice for Connie Ridgeway.
