"They met, an unlikely pair, in Times Square last Saturday night," begins the New Jersey Star-Ledger's account of how Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, better known as "Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker," is alleged to have met, had consensual sex with, then killed a 73-year-old man who was a partner in a New Jersey law firm.
Kai became an internet celebrity earlier this year after a video went viral, which made him out to be a vigilante hero for using his trusty hatchet to "suh-mash" open the head of a mentally ill man who was trying to attack a woman. But today, Kai was captured by Philadelphia Police at the Greyhound Bus station in Philadelphia today and arrested for Joseph Galfy's murder.
"Their rendezvous," reports the Star-Ledger, "[was] spent in and around Joseph Galfy Jr.’s ranch-style house on Starlite Drive in Clark, would last about 24 hours, until sometime Sunday evening when, authorities said, their encounter turned violent after a sexual tryst."
In a Facebook entry posted Tuesday, one day after Galfy's bludgeoned body was found by police, "Caleb Kai Lawrence Yodhehwawheh" wrote that he was drugged and sexually assaulted.
"what would you do if you woke up with a groggy head, metallic taste in your mouth, in a strangers house ... and started wretching, realizing that someone had drugged (and) raped ... you? what would you do?" his Facebook post read.

The tl;dr is that we got such exceptional capacity growth in the late 90s and early 00s we don’t need much more right now, so the focus since then has been on SSDs, networking, interfaces, etc, […]
