An extraordinary video has surfaced of recaptured fugitive Casey White, 38, who repeatedly shocked himself with a tranquilizer gun while almost oblivious to its impact.
The footage, obtained by DailyMail.com, was filmed several years ago and shows White, wearing a wedding ring, playing with the taser in a pawn shop.
Dressed in jeans, a sleeveless white T-shirt and a baseball cap, White seems fixated on the stun gun he is charging and recharging in his hand.
After preliminary testing the tension on the palm of his hand, White gradually escalates the potential pain.
Over and over, Casey deploys the taser, holds it in his right hand, and shoots it at his left arm. The stream of electricity crackles as he sits on the floor waiting for the shock.
You can see the bolts, clearly delivering a jolt stinging enough to make White jump, but he shakes off all the pain and numbness and just carries on.
DailyMail.com obtained footage of Casey White, 38, repeatedly shocking herself with a stun gun
He can see himself shocking in the arm and chest and doesn’t seem bothered by the pain
Over and over, Casey deploys the taser, holds it in his right hand, and shoots it at his left arm. The flow of electricity crackles as he sits on the floor, perhaps anticipating the shock
This comes days after he was captured after going on the run with his lover Vicky White, who committed suicide
White was arrested Monday in Evanston, Indiana, after 11 days on the run with his lover Vicky White.
Vicky, 56, shot herself when police raided the couple.
In the newly released video, Casey appears unperturbed as he stands and braces himself to try the taser on his own chest. He seems to work himself up to the task, pacing and bowing his shoulders.
Vicky White, who said she took Casey White for a mental health evaluation, ran away with him on April 29
Finally, he places the stun gun on his chest, the bolts hitting his T-shirt just above his heart. He recoils from the attack, jumps back and rubs the area where the electricity struck.
It’s unclear what White hoped to prove with his practice, whether he was showing his own strength or simply testing that of the stun gun.
Stun guns can vary in voltage between 20,000 and 150,000 volts.
The smaller one, which appears to be what White uses on its own, can cause muscle spasms and a dazed mental state.
When applied for three seconds or more, they can cause intense pain, mental disorientation and a loss of balance so great that the target falls to the floor.
Tasers worn by law enforcement officers deliver 50,000 volts with a five-second discharge cycle.
But the weapon in White’s hand seems to have little effect on him.
If anything, the images hammer home the challenge facing anyone trying to take down their 6ft 9in bulk.
Casey White can be seen in dash cam footage released by Indiana police and taken into custody Monday
The pair were caught Monday afternoon after leading US Marshals in a chase that lasted “less than a few minutes.” They had been in Evansville, Indiana since May 3.
The 56-year-old prosecutor was to retire the day she went into hiding with the suspected killer
The footage comes after he was captured and his lover Vicky White committed suicide.
The couple’s days as fugitives came to an end with Vicky’s death from a gunshot wound, shortly after their car rammed off the road and ended up in a ditch.
The pair were carrying $29,000 in cash, four handguns and an AR-15 rifle and were prepared for a gunfight when captured, an Indiana sheriff said Tuesday.
The end of the manhunt left authorities trying to figure out what happened in the 11 days that had passed after Vicky White escorted Casey White from a prison in Florence, Alabama, for what she falsely claimed was an evaluation of the mental health.
She also told her colleagues that she was feeling sick and planned to see the doctor afterward.
No one realized the two were missing until about 3:30 p.m.
The inmate and Vicky White appeared to have had a romance in prison, Alabama authorities said last week. Despite sharing a surname, they were unrelated.
About Vicky’s role in the breakout, Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding said, “He didn’t force her. It was a mutual relationship.’
At the time of the outbreak, Casey White was serving a 75-year sentence for attempted murder and other crimes and awaiting trial on charges of stabbing a woman to death during a burglary in 2015.
If convicted, he could face the death penalty.
Investigators believe the couple spent about six days at an Evansville motel.
Authorities discovered wigs intended to hide their identities.
The two were found 219 miles from the jail they left in Alabama on April 29. The manhunt spanned three different states.
These are all the weapons the couple had in their Cadillac when they were rammed into a ditch by police on Monday
The pair only had $29,000 of the $90,000 Vicky had withdrawn when they were caught Monday
Sheriff Wedding said investigators do not believe the two had relatives or other contacts in Evanston, in southwestern Indiana, close to the Kentucky-Illinois borders.
“They thought they had ridden long enough. They wanted to stop, get their bearings and then figure out the next travel destination,” the sheriff said.
Authorities intervened after a car wash manager reported that a man who closely resembled the giant 260-pound Casey White had been caught by a surveillance camera getting out of a pickup truck.
Investigators said they found the pickup and then discovered that the couple may have switched to a Cadillac, which was then seen outside a nearby motel.
They arrived in Evansville on May 3 and were helped by a local man whose identity is unknown. He booked them at the $44-a-night Motel 41 so they avoided going to the front desk where they might be recognized.
Casey White told investigators after his arrest that “he would likely have a firefight at the stake where they would both be killed,” the sheriff said.
The tape of a 911 call shows Vicky blaming Casey for their capture in her final moments. “You had to stay in a damn motel,” she’s heard to say.
The inmate appeared via video in an Indiana courtroom on Tuesday, where he waived extradition. He was sent back to Florence, Alabama and appeared in court there on Tuesday.
He was sent back to the William E. Donaldson Correctional Facility, a maximum security lockup near Bessemer, Alabama.
Vicky White, deputy director of corrections at the Lauderdale County Jail, had filed for retirement before the escape, and the day of the outbreak, April 29, was her last day of work.
She was honored by her colleagues who voted her Employee of the Year for the fifth time in her career.
