Pennsylvania State Police say escaped murderer Danelo Cavalcante has been captured after nearly two weeks on the run.
State police announced Cavalcante’s capture on social media on Wednesday and planned a news conference announcing details for 9:30 a.m.
The capture was announced as the manhunt in rural southeastern Pennsylvania entered its 14th day. Heavily armed law enforcement officers had searched for the fugitive through a night of downpours and rolling thunder.
Residents in the 8- to 10-square-mile area of woods and farmland had been locked down at home as classes were canceled at local schools and police closed roads, searching vehicles at roadblocks.
