Pennsylvania manhunt for escaped killer Danelo Cavalcante intensifies after latest sighting


The search for convicted killer Danelo Cavalcante who fled a Pennsylvania prison intensified Tuesday on its sixth day after a new sighting was captured on a trail camera near a well-known botanical gardens.

Two nearby school districts canceled classes and officials urged local residents to be wary and keep homes and cars locked.

A large search effort initially included a 2-mile perimeter largely around Pocopson Township, a residential neighborhood near the Chester County Prison. Officials on Tuesday expanded the perimeter encompassing an area south of the small town because it appeared Cavalcante had traveled farther away.

U.S. Marshals and local officials have offered a $10,000 reward for Danelo Souza Cavalcante after he escaped from a Pennsylvania prison on Aug. 31, 2023

Cavalcante, 34, escaped from of the Chester County Prison on Thursday, about 25 miles from Philadelphia, where he was waiting to be sent to a state facility. His escape comes a week after Cavalcante was sentenced to life in prison without parole for fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend, Deborah Brandao, in front of her two children. He’s also wanted in connection with a 2017 murder in his native Brazil.

Security at Longwood Gardens notified investigators that trail camera photos on their property captured Cavalcante walking north around 8:21 p.m. on Monday and then south through the same location at 9:33 p.m., Pennsylvania State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens said during a press conference Tuesday morning.
