This one’s kind of sad, and creepy. Not that I had high hopes for Kai the 24-year-old hatchet-wielding homeless hitchhiker hero.
The future is never as bright as you think it is for a guy whose sole claim to fame is nearly killing a 300 pound stranger, who thinks he’s Jesus, with a hatchet.
It seems that Kai, whose real name is Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, has now been arrested for murder. And, as you might expect, that one’s an odd story too.
First, a little background on Kai, from my earlier post:
Kai, a homeless hitchhiker, from West Virginia, saved a woman from the grips of some 300 pound crazy man who claimed to be Jesus. Kai apparently picked up a hatchet and hit the guy (who is alive, and in police custody). The man had previously been telling Kai how he raped a 14 year old girl in the Virgin Islands.
So Kai is now under arrest for the murder of a 73 year old New Jersey attorney, Joseph Galfy, Jr. Galfy was found dead in his home, reportedly wearing only a pair of underwear and socks. Police believe the two had a sexual relationship. Kai also, oddly, seems to have written about the murder on his Facebook page, according to police. (shaking head)
And police say, according to ABC, that they’ve found a string of unsolved homicides in Kai’s wake, though they’re not as of yet accusing him of any additional murders.
Here’s a local report on the arrest from a Fresno ABC affiliate:
And here’s Kai’s earlier interview after he saved the two women from pseudo-Jesus.
