CLARK, N.J. (WABC) -- Authorities in Union County have issued an arrest warrant for internet celebrity "Kai the hatchet wielding hitchhiker" in the murder of Joseph Galfy, Jr. in Clark, New Jersey
The suspect is identified as Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, a 34-year-old Internet celebrity and is well known on Facebook and YouTube as "Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker."
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.
The victim, Joseph Galfy, was found inside his home on Starlite Drive on May 13, 2013 after officers received a call to check on his well-being.
An autopsy performed the following day determined that Galfy died as a result of blunt force trauma, said Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow.
Based on the investigation, authorities know that McGillvary has cut his hair in an attempt to alter his appearance.
He was last seen at a light rail station in Haddonfield, N.J. area, said Romankow. He is considered to be armed and dangerous.
The Union County Homicide Task Force is working with local, state, and Federal officials to locate McGillvary. He is charged with murder in Union County and bail has been set at $3 million by Superior Court Judge Stuart Peim.
Anyone with information regarding McGillvary is urged to contact Union County Crime Stoppers.
A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered in the case.

Haddonfield? How does some north Jersey dude end up in Haddonfield? Real good place to be a homeless fugitive. I hope he has his Channel and Prada stuff with him...........
By the way Swellinfo is rounding up a posse to get this sucka.................Have to hurry before we lose sight of his tracks. Hey, you guys got horses? $5000 will keep us well with cigars, whiskey and saloon gals for quite some time. I just watched a thing on Billy the Kid the other week so I should be pretty adept at this tracking thing. I just need a horse. Deputize those men and get them a riding we got a varmit to catch.
