A convicted murderer is somehow still on the lam after busting out of a Pennsylvania prison last week.

Cavalcante managed to slip through the cracks on August 31st by "crab-walking" between two walls and shimmying right out of the prison yard unnoticed. The tower guard on duty at the time has now been fired over the massive security lapse. But how Cavalcante pulled off this "Shawshank Redemption"-style escape remains a mystery. Authorities are dumbfounded that the killer has evaded capture for so long despite hundreds of officers swarming the area. "He'll make a mistake. He'll become more desperate," said Lt. Col.

Will officials finally nab their man? Or could the search drag on if Cavalcante exploits more shocking loopholes? The twists and turns continue...
