Cavalcante, 34, was convicted of first-degree murder for killing his ex-girlfriend, Deborah Brandão, last month. He escaped Chester County Prison in Pennsylvania by placing his hands on one wall and his feet on another while "crab-walking" to the roof. He then pushed through a razor wife, ran across the facility's roof, scaled a fence, and became a free man, authorities revealed.

Cavalcante has been spotted several times since his escape. Now, 500 law enforcement officers — including the state police, FBI, ATF, and US Marshals — are on the case. The hunt has turned critical after Cavalcante stole a rifle from a PA home on Monday night.

Sources claim Dog is thinking about using his expertise to help find the convicted killer, who has evaded police custody since August 31.

Residents in a three-mile radius of the home where Cavalcante stole the rifle were sent an emergency alert on Monday telling them “to lock all external doors and windows, secure vehicles, and remain indoors.”

Pennsylvania State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens warned that law enforcement considers him "desperate" and "dangerous," adding, “I would suspect that he’s desperate enough to use that weapon.”

This wouldn't be the first major news case Dog has helped with over the last few years. As RadarOnline.com reported, the fugitive hunter attempted to track down Gabby Petito's killer, Brian Laundrie, who was on the run in 2021.

Petito's then-fiancée admitted to murdering her on their cross-country road trip but claimed it was a mercy killing.
