NEWS: Escaped prisoner Danelo Cavalcante may have vehicle, changed appearance: cops

The convicted killer on the run after breaking out of a Pennsylvania prison may have altered his appearance, obtained a vehicle, and moved to a fresh location, police said Sunday as the manhunt for the escaped criminal enters its 11th day.

Just before 4:30 a.m. Sunday, police shared new images of Danelo Cavalcante, 34, who escaped from a life sentence at Chester County Prison on Aug. 31, CBS News reported.

The images, captured on a Ring camera in East Pikeland Township, Pennslyvania, show a man believed to be Cavalcante sporting a clean-cut look, in favor of the scruffy beard and mustache he donned behind bars.

New images of a man believed to be the fugitive show him wearing a black baseball-style hat, a yellow or green hooded sweatshirt, green prison pants and white shoes.

Police on Sunday said they now believe Cavalcante is in possession of a vehicle. While they were unsure of the vehicle’s make, they said it may be white.

Additional officers have also been stationed near where he was last believed to have been spotted in the Upper Providence Township, which is about 30 miles north of Chester County Prison, which he busted out of on Aug. 31.

Pennsylvania State Police are expected to provide an update during a press conference Sunday.

The latest possible sighting comes as at least 400 officers have been out searching for the dangerous escaped convict, who continues to elude police even after he was spotted twice on Friday.

There have been nearly a dozen confirmed sightings — including two on Friday — since Cavalcante’s escape late last month.

State police described Cavalcante as extremely dangerous.

Police are expected to provide an update on their search efforts for the escaped criminal on Sunday.

Cavalcante was recently sentenced to life behind bars without parole for fatally stabbing 33-year-old Deborah Brandao, his former girlfriend, while her 7-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son were present in 2021.

He was awaiting transfer to a state facility when he escaped from the prison by scaling a wall, climbing over razor wire and jumping from a roof into a less-secure area to elude guards.

A tower guard who “did not see” or report the killer’s escape was fired Thursday. The guard, an 18-year veteran of the prison, has not yet been identified.
