Escaped prisoner, Danelo Cavalcante, has been spotted on a home camera north of the original search area.
Entering day eleven of the search, Cavalcante has made some moves. While the police focused on the area in and around Longwood Gardens, it seems Cavalcante had slipped through the perimeter.
On Saturday evening (9/10) Cavalcante was captured on a home camera near Phoenixville. This is about 40 minutes northeast of the original focused search area. Police say he has family in the area he has been spotted in and the family of the girlfriend he murdered is also in the Phoenixville area.
The video also shows the escaped prisoner is now clean-shaven and is wearing a greenish/yellow hoodie, and hat and is still wearing his prisoner-issued green pants.
