People share everything on social media— maybe even a confession for murder. A 24-year-old allegedly detailed that he killed his girlfriend on Reddit and has been caught after a lengthy manhunt. According to NBC News, Ager Hasan has been charged with the murder of 22-year-old Melinda Vasilije.

Canadian authorities had been on the lookout for Hasan for two months. He was reportedly sighted in Pennsylvania, where he stole a license plate from a car, and in Tennessee. He was driving a car he stole when he was ultimately arrested on Tuesday during an unrelated traffic stop in Texas. Authorities believe the suspect was attempting to cross the Mexican border.

According to Waterloo Regional Police, Vasilije was found dead in her home in Ontario on April 28. She had been stabbed multiple times.

A post on Reddit appeared following her murder that seemed to detail the killing. "Out of shock and fear I grab one (knife). I hit her with it, almost blindly. A few times," read the post, according to the Star. "I was confused, shocked and scared. I had no intentions of that happening. When I left I honestly thought she just passed out. Then I looked at the blood, and started freaking out and just ran." The same person claimed there was no intent to kill. "I honestly had no intentions of ever doing that to her, I was protecting myself."

"Our investigations are still ongoing in relation to the social media posts that Mr. Hasan has been believed to be posting over the last number of months," shared Waterloo Regional Police Inspector Mike Haffner, per NBC.

Hasan was charged with second degree murder and three counts of breach recognizance.
