An Ontario man who may have admitted to killing his girlfriend in a post on Reddit was just arrested in Texas, almost three months after the death of 22-year-old Melinda Vasilije.
According to police, Hasan crossed the border into the US just hours after Vasilije's death. About a week later, a Reddit user claiming to be Hasan wrote a detailed account of a fight that allegedly resulted in Vasilije's death.
Shortly before Hasan's arrest, an Instagram account believed to belong to him suggested he was ready to give himself up.
