Manhunt Underway For Escaped Convicted Killer In Pennsylvania As Investigators Uncover Escape Method

According to a law enforcement source, investigators have determined that Danelo Cavalcante, a convicted murderer, escaped the Chester County Prison in Pennsylvania by scaling onto the roof and fleeing from there last Thursday. 

This daring escape has prompted a massive manhunt involving approximately 200 law enforcement personnel across eastern Pennsylvania. 

As the search enters its seventh day, officials from the US Marshals Service are employing tactics designed to put pressure on Cavalcante and force him out of hiding.

Describing the situation as a high-stakes “game of tactical hide and seek,” Robert Clark, supervisory deputy US marshal for Pennsylvania’s eastern district, emphasized the extreme danger posed by the escaped inmate. 

The Pennsylvania State Police are set to provide a detailed update on the ongoing manhunt at 3 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

Interestingly, another inmate, Igore Bolte, had previously fled the same prison on May 19 by employing a similar method of rooftop escape, according to court documents.  

Bolte explained to police that he had managed to scale a wall in an exercise area by using his legs against one wall and his arms on another until he could pull himself onto the roof. 

However, Bolte’s escape was short-lived, as prison officials apprehended him in a nearby residential neighborhood less than a mile from the facility just five minutes after his breakout.

During a news conference on Monday, Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan acknowledged Bolte’s escape and emphasized that the prison administration had been aware of certain vulnerabilities. She stated that efforts had been made to address and correct these security shortcomings.
