Escaped PA killer eludes police for 12th day

Convicted killer Danelo Cavalcante’s sister has been arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as authorities say the escaped murderer has tried to contact former co-workers a week and a half after breaking out of a Chester County prison. Eleni Cavalcante faces possible deportation over "some immigration issues," Pennsylvania State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens said Sunday during a news conference, though he didn’t say if she was arrested for helping Cavalcante elude police capture. On Saturday night, Cavalcante slipped through a police perimeter around the Longwood Gardens botanical park, changed his appearance, and stole a dairy delivery van. He drove more than 20 miles to East Pikeland Township and Phoenixville, where he sought help from two former co-workers.
