The Pulse of CBS Philadelphia: Watch the top stories from September 4-8

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — This week, police continue to search for an escaped killer, record-breaking heat has forced schools across the Philly area to close early, and more.

Here’s what our team has been working on this week:

Convicted murderer Danelo Cavalcante escapes from prison

Danelo Cavalcante has been on the run for over a week after escaping from the Chester County Jail last week.

Cavalcante, who was convicted of murdering his ex-girlfriend, escaped from prison by climbing up a wall in the garden. He was then able to escape by getting past barbed wire – the same way another prisoner briefly escaped earlier this year.

Reportedly, Cavalcante has been spotted several times since the escape. The last was Thursday around Longwood Gardens.

Heat recording in the Philly area

It may be September, but this week feels like the middle of summer in the Delaware Valley.

The heat wave has hit the region hard, forcing schools from Philadelphia to Quakertown in Bucks County to discharge students early under the sweltering conditions.

The students go back to school

It was a big week for students and faculty in Philadelphia. The new academic year started on Tuesday.

Chief Inspector Dr. Tony Watlington had risen in good spirits and early at the Southwest Philadelphia district bus depot to invite the drivers on their first route of the day.

Watlington is also a former school bus driver. He came to the bus depot to thank the drivers for keeping Philly moving.

Watlington said he’s used to getting up this early to go for a run on the Schuylkill River Trail or do some CrossFit.

“It’s the most exciting day of the school year, the first day is the most exciting,” Watlington said. “The second most exciting day is the graduation ceremony.”
