Hunt for escaped Pennsylvania killer hiding in woods leads schools to close doors

Two school districts near Philadelphia closed campuses Tuesday after security cameras spotted an escaped murderer traversing nearby woods and public spaces, authorities said.

The latest images of Danelo Cavalcante, 34, a killer who slipped out of custody Thursday, were captured Monday night on a trail camera at Longwood Gardens, a public esplanade in Chester County, officials said.

“I am confident that he will slip up. He did here. He walked into a trail cam, didn’t know it,” state police Lt. Col. George Bivens told reporters Tuesday.
