Is Kai, The Wild Hitchhiker and Best News Interview Subject Ever, Also A Murderer?

Back in February, I wrote about a guy who said his named is Kai, who was interviewed on a local news station after subduing a hatchet wielding assailant. The assailant was threatening other people near Fresno, Calif. and Kai managed to stop the assault.
This guy became an Internet celebrity in February.
Is he a murderer too?  

It was one of the most delicious, fun news interviews ever, and it was a joy to feature him in this blog thing. 

Kai seemed like such a mellow dude, even if his storytelling style was animated to say the least. (You've got to watch the video again in that February post)

But people surprise you. WABC-TV in New York says Kai is now wanted in the murder of a New Jersey man. 

Of course we don't know for sure yet if he actually did anything like that, but WABC says police are on the lookout for Kai, whose real name is Caleb Lawrence McGillvary.

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

The infamous Kai interview from February went super viral and he became one of those major accidental Internet celebrities who are quickly forgotten about, except in some future Trivial Pursuit games.

"Kai" is  accused of killing a guy named Joseph Galfy, Jr. in Clark, N.J., who was found dead in his home.

Somehow, if Kai is caught, I doubt if he will give another super animated interview about the accusations against him.

But you never know.
