Kai the Hitchhiker Accused of Murder
Date: May 16
Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, known on the Internet as Kai the Hatchet Hitchhiker, was applauded back in February for heroically saving a woman from an attacker by hitting the man repeatedly with his hatchet. Fast-forward to May, and Kai has been arrested as a suspect in the murder of a 73-year-old New Jersey man. That has to be some kind of record for the fastest rise and fall of a hero ever. Kai posted a message to Facebook suggesting that the man drugged and sexually assaulted him. The case will be an interesting one and will no doubt be well-documented online where Kai found his intial fame.
