Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker Arrested for Murder


Kai, a man made famous after a video of him attacking a maniac driver with a hatchet went viral, was arrested Thursday in connection to the murder of a New Jersey lawyer. His real name is Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, but he became known on the Internet as “Kai the Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker” in February after he fended off a maniac driver who picked him up as a hitchhiker and then gave a colorful interview to local news. McGillvary is being sought in the murder of Joseph Galfy Jr., who was found dead from what appeared to be blunt force trauma. Officials did not say how they came to suspect McGillvary, but McGillvary did suggest in a Facebook post that he had been drugged and raped. More
