Escaped Convict’s Charges

The 34-year-old escaped convict from Brazil was indicted in 2021 in Schuylkill Township. Reports say that the escaped convict stabbed his girlfriend, Deborah Brandao, around 38 times while her two young children were watching them. The escaped convict was charged with first-degree murder on August 16 and was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole last week. Deborah’s sister who currently takes care of the youngsters is worried sick that the escaped convict might come after her.

Escaped Convict’s Attempts

According to ABC News, the escaped convict broke out from Chester County Prison on August 31 around 8:51 A.M. by scaling a wall, climbing over razor wire, and jumping from a roof. For ten days, the escaped convict managed to dodge authorities and their attempts to capture him. On Friday, Chopper 6 was positioned near Longwood Gardens while officers surrounded the area where the escaped convict was seen multiple times this week. According to investigators, the escaped convict was still off the hook, but he might be just within the search area’s vicinity.
