Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker Arrested For Murder

You all remember Kai?! OP here:

Homeless Hitchhiker - AUTOTUNE REMIX

Internet Celebrity, Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker Arrested in Philadelphia for NJ Murder

Updated at 07:23 PM

Action News

HADDONFIELD, NJ - May 16, 2013 (WPVI) -- A homeless, hatchet-wielding hitchhiker who became an Internet celebrity earlier this year has been arrested in Philadelphia and charged with the murder of a New Jersey lawyer.
Union County Prosecutor, Theodore Romankow, says Caleb "Kai" McGillvary, was arrested at a bus terminal early Thursday evening.

McGillvary became known as, "Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker," after intervening in an attack on a California utility worker in February. A TV news interview with him quickly went viral.

Authorities allege McGillvary beat 73-year-old Joseph Galfy, Jr. to death in his Clark, NJ home after they met in New York City. Galfy was found dead Monday, wearing only underwear and socks.

Authorities say a post on Kai's Facebook page claimed he was drugged and raped, asking what would you do?

McGillvary is being held on $3 million bail.

"I am grateful for the overwhelming response and dedicated effort by the public and law enforcement that led to this arrest," said Romankow. "I believe that everyone is a little safer with this person off the streets."

Action News confirmed Kai slept at a fan's home in Glassboro, New Jersey Monday night.

The three residents who live at the home have all been interviewed by police.
One resident named Eric spoke exclusively with us Thursday afternoon. He said he believes Kai could have committed murder.

"He had been on the road a while, so kind of rough around the edges, but a nice guy," Eric.

McGillvary spent the night in a Glassboro home the day after he is accused of bludgeoning Galfy to death.

Police say he came to Philadelphia and later called a fan who lives in the Glassboro house to pick him up.

"We didn't know when he was staying here. He didn't give any signs of it. He was a nice enough guy and everything, but afterwards it kind of made sense after everything we are hearing. You go back on all of the stuff he was saying and it all made sense," Eric said.

The hitchhiker who is known for his dark locks showed up with his hair cut short, a possible disguise.

Police say he also spent some time in Philadelphia in the hours after Galfey was killed.

"We don't know where he is, but we do know this man is used to being on the road and he is considered dangerous, make no mistake about it," Union County, New Jersey Prosecutor Theodore Romankow said.

"He said he was going down to Georgia trying to catch a bus, but other than that, I don't know," Eric said.

The victim, 73-year-old Joseph Galfy, was found inside his home on Starlite Drive in Clark, New Jersey on Monday after officers received a call to check on his well-being.

An autopsy performed the following day determined that Galfy died as a result of blunt force trauma, said Romankow.

It was not immediately known how McGillvary ended up in Galfy's home.

Neighbors said Galfy lived there for about 15 years and he had been living alone since his longtime partner died about five years ago

Me, too! He looked to me to have been out in the sun too long judging by the condition of his hair, and maybe a bit dehydrated, was all.

I usually think the ones who don't look or act, "crazy," are the scary ones!
