A convicted murderer who escaped from a Pennsylvania prison was spotted by surveillance cameras in an area not far from the prison.

Danelo Cavalcante, 34, was convicted on 16 August for stabbing his 33-year-old former girlfriend Deborah Brandao to death in front of her children back in April 2021. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Cavalcante, described as an “extremely dangerous man,” escaped from Chester County Prison in West Chester around 8.45am on Thursday, said the county’s district attorney Deb Ryan.

The Chester County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement that Cavalcante was seen on cameras at around 12.30am on Friday in Pocopson Township, roughly one and a half miles from the prison.
