Galfy, Jr. was found dead Monday inside his Clark, New Jersey home. Prosecutors say the two met near Times Square on Saturday night then went back to the victim’s home.

The next day, authorities believe the victim took Kai to a train heading to Asbury Park to visit a fan. He returned the same day.

Galfy Jr. was found dead less than 24 hours later.

The Bistro restaurant manager in Clark says the suspect came into his restaurant Sunday night asking for water.

The suspect was last seen at a light field station in Haddonfield, New Jersey  possibly heading down south to Atlanta.

An autopsy showed he died as a result of blunt trauma to the head.

    Confused…was he arrested or is he still being sought? 2nd paragraph of story says "Kai — real name Caleb Lawrence McGillvary — was arrested Thursday evening at the Greyhound Bus Terminal in Philadelphia and has been charged with the homicide of Joseph Galfy, Jr., authorities say." and last sentence says "The suspect was last seen at a light field station in Haddonfield, New Jersey possibly heading down south to Atlanta."
