The police have warned residents to stay indoors and lock their doors as the prisoner is armed and dangerous.
Pennsylvania State Police said officers were pursuing Danelo Cavalcante, 34, in South Coventry Township. Anyone who has seen Danelo must not engage. They should lock their doors and call 911.
“Residents in the area are asked to lock all doors and windows, secure vehicles and remain indoors,” Pennsylvania State Police wrote.
Cavalcante has eluded capture since escaping from the prison in Chester County.
Lt Col George Bivens said Cavalcante was desperate because he was seeking help from people with distant connections.
“The fact that he has reached out to people with a very distant past connection tells me he doesn’t have a great network of support,” Lt Col Bivens said.
“And I think the longer we push him, the more resources, the more tools we bring to bear, we will ultimately capture him. He doesn’t have what he needs to last long-term.”
Daniel had been sentenced to life without parole for killing his girlfriend Deborah Brandao in the US, stabbing her dozens of times in front of her two young children in April 2021.
