Kai the Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker sought for alleged murder

Bizarre turn of events for brief viral Internet sensation “Kai, the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker.”

From Reuters:

Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, 24, known as “Kai the Hitchhiker,” is considered “armed and dangerous,” said Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow.

Prosecutors suspect McGillvary killed 73-year-old attorney Joseph Galfy Jr. in his Clark, New Jersey, home on Sunday before making his way to southern New Jersey, possibly headed to Philadelphia.

Galfy’s body was discovered Monday after he didn’t show up for work at his law firm. An autopsy revealed that he died from “blunt force trauma,” Romankow said.

A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office said there was a host of evidence that led police to McGillvary including “video of him with the victim at a New Jersey train station.”

Investigators believe the two men met recently in New York City, but it was unclear how they linked up.

The day after the killing, McGillvary met up with “fans” in Southern New Jersey and told them he was on his way to Philadelphia, the prosecutor’s office said. He was last seen Tuesday waiting for a train in Camden County.

The suspect apparently claimed on his Facebook that he was drugged and raped, according to the Star-Ledger:

what would you do if you woke up with a groggy head, metallic taste in your mouth, in a strangers house... walked to the mirror and seen come dripping from the side of your face from your mouth, and started wretching, realizing that someone had drugged, raped, and blown their fuckin load in you? what would you do?

Stay tuned.
