    NJ - Joe Galfy, 73, brutally murdered at his Clark home, 13 May 2013

    NJ investigators searching for 'Kai the Hitchhiker' in connection with murder of elderly lawyer
    New Jersey investigators are searching for an Internet celebrity hitchhiker in connection with the brutal beating death of an elderly former attorney in suburban Union County Sunday night, officials said.

    Cops are hunting down Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, 34, who is also known as "Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker" on a series of highly trafficked YouTube videos.

    He is a suspect in the death of Joe Galfy, 73, who was found dead inside his home on Starlite Drive in Clark on May 13 after cops were called by concerned family members when he failed to answer his phone for several days.

    Prosecutors said today that the pair met in Times Square last Sunday and that Galfy brought him back to New Jersey that night.

    In a graphic Facebook post put up after the the alleged killing, McGillvary indicates that he was drugged and raped around the time he was at the elderly man's home.

    “We don't know if he is in Philadelphia or Georgia," ADA Theodore J. Romankow. said. "We just don't know where he is, but we do know that this man is used to being on the road and he is considered armed and dangerous. Make no mistake about it.”
    ---
    Union County prosecutors said that the hitchhiker has lopped off his long hair to evade detection.

    He was last seen at a light rail station in the Haddonfield, New Jersey area, said Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow. McGillvary is considered to be armed and dangerous.
    The Camden County Prosecutor's Office said that McGillvary is likely no longer in New Jersey and there is "no immediate danger in Haddonfield."

    McGillvary is homeless but considers himself "homefree" and relies on the generosity of strangers for food, lodging and transportation.

    He is also known as Kai Lawrence, Caleb Kai Lawrence and Kai Nicodemus.

    Based on the investigation, authorities say McGillvary has cut his hair in an attempt to alter his appearance. Investigators also released an updated photo of McGillvary, showing him with that shorter hair along with a distinctive face tattoo.

    Kai allegedly met the attorney in New York City near Times Square. A surveillance camera captured images of their encounter. The men later went back to the older man's house, officials said.

    At a press conference on Wednesday, officials said Kai had reached out to some fans in South Jersey. Those fans dropped him off on Tuesday at the train station. He told them he was first heading to Philadelphia and then going to see a girlfriend in Georgia.

    Holy crap, this is the third "Famous for 15 Minutes" sorta-viral celebrity that has gone to become a murderer! There was the hiccup girl. Then there was the boy who fell asleep on the plane and ended up in the wrong city. And now Kai.

    anybody got a link to his FB or twitter if they are still up. BTW, how can you be homeless (or HomeFree as he likes to call it) and yet have FB and twitter etc? How are you an internet "celebrity"? Who pays for your device and for internet. I guess he could just hang out at McDonalds sucking up their WiFi.

    Weird.

    There's a comment on another forum where someone mentions an unsolved murder "in Ashland a couple years ago", where the suspect may be a transient with a sword or hatchet... I looked it up and found a thread here about it, and it's possible there may be a connection:

    New story with a lot of details:

    Purplesage posted this on Kai's original thread earlier today. Perhaps a MOD can merge the two.

    He actually gave this interviewer his first and middle name as his last name. He goes into depth about his childhood in Canada. No excuse of course, but it's not pretty.
