Caleb McGillvary, a.k.a. Kai the Hitchhiker, has officially gone from homeless drifter to Internet folk hero to murder suspect in a matter of three months.
He was arrested last night in Philadelphia and charged with homicide.
McGillvary, 24, was arrested at 6:30 p.m. at the Greyhound Bus Terminal and charged in the murder last Sunday of Joseph Galfy Jr., officials confirm.
Galfy, 73, an attorney, was found dead in his Clark, N.J., home on Monday. The cause of death was blunt-force trauma, and the prime suspect is Kai.
McGillvary claimed on Facebook Tuesday that he woke up "in a stranger's house" and had been drugged and raped, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
