Crooks think they can outrun the cops. How stoopid can they be. Running away only buys them a short amount of time. They must think it's worth it.

Re: Anyone else watching Live Stream of the escaped murderer in PA?

I heard on the news he is small man weighing 120 lbs. He escaped the prison by scaling the walls..The guard didn't realize he was gone until 1 hour later. As many have stated , he has been sentenced for life for stabbing his girlfriend 38 times.  

 

I am surprised they haven't caught him yet. It has to be unnerving to have this criminal in your area..Wishing everybody in the area to be safe.

At this rate, he might make it back to Brazil before we can capture him....

The murderer escaped by scaling between two walls to the roof where he managed to get through barbed wire.  The wire was added to the roof when another prisoner also escaped the same way back in May.  Not only did it take the guards an hour to notice he was missing but it took another 15-20 minutes for the prison to alert the authorities and the public. 

 

One school district in the search area will be open today.  Another will have schools that are not in the search perimeter open.

I live about 20 min away from his last sighting at Longwood Gardens. In addition to locking everything and being extra cautious, I am grateful to have a dog!!

WEST CHESTER, PA. - 

A murderer made a brazen escape from a suburban Philadelphia jail yard by scaling a wall, climbing over razor wire and jumping from a roof in a breakout.

 

The timeline and details of Danelo Cavalcante's escape -- including that he got out using the same route another prisoner took in May -- were released as police from various agencies flooded a search zone of increasingly worried residents.

 

A tower guard on duty during the breakout was put on leave as part of the escape investigation.

 

The escape and search have attracted international attention and became big news in Cavalcante's native Brazil. The main newspaper in Rio de Janeiro ran a lengthy story Wednesday with the headline "Dangerous hide-and-seek."

 

Howard Holland, the acting warden of the Chester County Prison, played a security video at a news conference Wednesday. It shows the 34-year-old Cavalcante standing in a passageway next to the jail yard before bracing his hands on one wall and his feet on another then "crab-walking" up the walls out of the camera's view.

 

Holland said the prison had brought in a consultant after the first escape in May and added razor wire to that area.

 

"What was perhaps overlooked was the fact that addressing the single point of physical countermeasures should have been bolstered by additional means. We are addressing that," Holland said. He said the prison was fully staffed when Cavalcante broke out.

 

The prison is considering adding officers to the yard during recreation times, as well as caging in the top of those yards, Holland said. The Pennsylvania attorney general's office has taken over the escape investigation, he said.

 

Holland said the inmate who escaped in May was returned within minutes after a tower guard quickly sounded the alarm. He said Cavalcante was identified as missing after a headcount, more than an hour after the video was taken. A public siren was sounded about 10 a.m.

 

Holland declined to say why the guard, whose name has not been made public, had not noticed Cavalcante hopping from the roof and heading away from the prison's perimeter..
