“Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker” Arrested in murder case
May 17, 2013


ELIZABETH, N.J. — Life on the run for the Internet sensation known as "Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker" ended when he asked for a cup of coffee. A Starbucks employee was credited Friday with recognizing 24-year-old Caleb "Kai" McGillvary, wanted in the beating death of a man nearly three times his age.

The pair met amid the neon lights of New York City's Times Square over the weekend and went to the home of 73-year-old lawyer Joseph Galfy Jr., authorities say.

On Monday, Galfy was found beaten to death in his bedroom, wearing only his socks and underwear. McGillvary was arrested Thursday in Philadelphia and charged with his murder.

McGillvary was arraigned Friday. A court official said he has a U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement detainer for three arrests in Canada in recent years.

McGillvary gained a measure of fame in February after intervening in an attack on a California utility worker. In an interview viewed millions of times online, he described using a hatchet he was carrying to repeatedly hit a man who had struck a worker with his car, fending off a further attack.

His rambling, profanity-laced interview to a television station went viral, with one version viewed more than 3.9 million times on YouTube. McGillvary later appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

It's hardly surprising given his (self alleged) circumstance - a homeless hitchhiker...
