Danelo Cavalcante has been captured. If you've been following the news, you will likely have heard of Cavelcante, who for two weeks has been the focus of a statewide manhunt in Pennsylvania after escaping from the Chester County Prison in Pocopson Township, PA. The fugitive had been imprisoned after being convicted of first-degree murder for stabbing his girlfriend of two years in front of her two young children and sentenced to life behind bars.
This capture will likely come as a relief to families in people living in Philidelphia particularly as it was reported yesterday that Cavelcante had armed himself with a rifle stolen from someone's garage.

It should be noted Cavalcante was an illegal immigrant to this country, having fled to the US in 2018 to escape murder charges in his native Brazil. At his hearing, prosecutors made the case that Cavalcante's girlfriend had learned of his fugitive status in his home country and threatened to turn him in to the police.
