Ager Hasan, the 24-year-old Hamilton man who is accused in the fatal stabbing of Melinda Vasilije of Kitchener, has been arrested in Texas for second degree murder, police say.
Police have said the two had been in a relationship for about a year. Hasan has been a fugitive since 22-year-old Vasilije was found dead in her Country Hill Drive apartment at 3 a.m. on April 28.
Since then, he has been in communication with police through email, and someone alleging to be Hasan has periodically posted on Instagram — and once on Reddit.
CBC has not been able to verify if this account in fact belongs to Hasan. Scroll through for more images.

Police issued a Canada-wide warrant for Hasan's arrest, for one charge of a second-degree murder. A post mortem revealed Vasilije died from multiple stab wounds.
Police knew Hasan crossed into the U.S. on the Peace Bridge from Fort Erie, Ont., to Buffalo, N.Y., around 6 a.m. on April 28 driving a black Honda HR-V.
A man matching his description was spotted switching licence plates off a vehicle in a Walmart parking lot in Harborcreek Township, near Erie, Pa., around 10 a.m. that same day.
It's believed the man put the stolen plates on his own vehicle and fled the area.
He was last spotted in Tennessee on May 20.
