Pennsylvania jail escapee Danelo Cavalcante stored himself alive and beneath the radar throughout his two weeks on the lam by scarfing down fruit and ingesting water from creeks — whereas hiding his poop to keep away from detection.
Cavalcante gave investigators a window into his methodology of survival for 14 days within the forest after he was nabbed Wednesday by a big contingent of law enforcement officials and federal marshals in rural Chester County.
The convicted assassin stated he stayed out of sight by primarily shifting round at night time, burying himself beneath thick brush and protecting his poop with leaves, in accordance with Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshall Robert Clark, who was concerned within the manhunt.
Clark appeared on Chris Cuomo’s NewsNation present Wednesday night time, saying Cavalcante had a couple of shut calls with officers, who nearly stepped on him whereas he was beneath the thickets. Actually, the tactical group was solely 7-to-8 yards away from Cavalcante on three events.
What’s extra, Cavalcante hung across the similar space for a number of days, scarfing down watermelons from a farm and ingesting water from streams.
In late August, Cavalcante broke out of Chester County Jail, scaling a wall and climbing over razor wire earlier than dashing throughout a roof and leaping to the bottom under to make his escape. A fugitive job pressure searched excessive and low for him as Pennsylvania was gripped with worry.
Now that Cavalcante’s again in custody — and cooling his heels in state jail — everybody can breathe a sigh of aid.
