A Man Convicted Of Killing Escapes Prison

In Pennsylvania, a manhunt is underway after a convicted killer escaped from a prison west of Philadelphia.

Cavalcante, who was recently convicted of fatally stabbing his fiancée, escaped from a suburban Philadelphia jail on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2023, and officials say he is also sought in his home Brazil in a related homicide.

Danelo Cavalcante, a Brazilian man convicted of murder just over two weeks ago, escaped from Chester County Prison on Thursday morning at 8.50 a.m

In a recent report from Metro News, authorities are asking residents of Philadelphia’s heavily populated suburbs to be on the lookout for him and to contact police if he is seen. ‘Do not approach him if you see him,’ Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan said. ‘He is regarded as exceedingly dangerous.’

Cavalcante, 34, was arrested in April 2021 for stabbing his former lover, Deborah Brandao, according to the district attorney. ‘His wickedness knows no boundaries,’ stated Ryan. According to authorities, Cavalcante stabbed his girlfriend 38 times in front of her two young children when she threatened to reveal that he was sought for a most dangerous killer/ murder in Brazil in 2017.

According to the report released by the AP news, he was 5 feet (1.5 meters) tall and weighed 120 pounds (54 kilos), according to authorities. According to a picture issued by the county, the most dangerous killer had wavy black hair and a close-cropped goatee and mustache. Ryan stated that residents within a 6-mile (10-kilometer) radius of the facility had been alerted.

Cavalcante was convicted in April 2021 of killing Deborah Brandao, his girlfriend of two years, in front of her children at her house in Schuylkill Township. Prosecutors claimed he was enraged because she intended to reveal the accusations in Brazil. According to Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan, they arise from a 2017 killing.
