Do you remember Kai the Hatchet-weilding Hitchhiker who saved a Fresno PG&E worker back in February? Guess what?
He’s now wanted for murder in New Jersey.
The murder weapon was a hatchet.
The man who achieved Internet fame as Kai, the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker when he struck a driver accused of attempting to run over a Pacific Gas & Electric work in February, is wanted on suspicion of murdering an attorney in New Jersey.
Kai is being sought for the killing of Joseph Galfy Jr., an attorney found dead in his home Monday afternoon, Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow said Thursday morning, as reported by the Star-Ledger in New Jersey.
The whereabouts of the 24-year-old suspect, whose real name is Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, are not known, Romankow said.
Romankow said McGillvary, who he said cut his hair in an attempt to alter his appearance, was last seen at a light-rail station in the Haddonfield area. The prosecutor said McGillvary is considered armed and dangerous, the Star-Ledger said.
An autopsy completed Tuesday afternoon determined Galfy, 73, died of blunt force trauma, the prosecutor’s office said.
In a Facebook entry posted Tuesday, McGillvary intimates he was drugged and raped, but does not say where or when the incident took place, the Star-Ledger reported.
“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 … dripping from the side of your face from your mouth, and started wretching (sic), realizing that someone had drugged, raped, and (had sex with you)? what would you do?” it reads.
McGillvary gained fame and several television appearances for helping to stop a deadly attack in Fresno by pummeling a man with his hatchet.
The man McGillvary attacked, Jett McBride, 54, of Tacoma, Wash., is charged with the attempted murder of PG&E worker Rayshawn Neely for driving his car into PG&E workers on Feb. 1 near Marks and McKinley avenues.
According to the local news here the cops in New Jersey think Kai may have been involved in several other hatchet murders as he hitchhiked across the country.
Guess who is really happy about all this? Deborah Girard-Gross.
She’s McBride’s defense attorney.
