A man who was the prime suspect in a quadruple killing gave an interview at a homeless shelter while he was on the run.

Alexander Hill was wanted for killing three women and a 2-year-old, all of whom were relatives of his ex-girlfriend. He allegedly killed two of his victims in an assault, while the other two were killed when the house was burned down.

The 48-year-old suspect was caught on camera at a Waffle House after the killings, but then, he vanished, only to reappear a year later.

Watch the bizarre story of how authorities captured Alexander Hill Jr. below:

On Easter Sunday, the first anniversary of the killings, police reissued an image of Hill, and an anonymous tip led officials to where Hill was staying in Buffalo.

It is unclear whether the tipster was helped by Hill’s TV interview with WGRZ.

The interview, in which Hill used the alias Trent Davis, was a spotlight piece on the local pastor at the St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy homeless shelter.

“The minister has given me an opportunity to do some work, kept me out of the elements,” he said during the interview, claiming to be a carpenter who lost his job and his home. “So far, it looks like it’s going up.”

On Thursday, Hill was arrested and charged, and he will be extradited to Virginia, where he will stand trial.
