McAfee Murder

November 13, 2012 by  

McAfee Murder, The millionaire software company founder John McAfee has gone on the run after the murder of a neighbour on an island off the coast of Belize. The 67 year old, who amassed a $100m (£63m) fortune developing anti-virus software, said buried himself in the sand with a cardboard box over his head so he could breathe to evade police when they came to question him about the murder of Gregory Faull.

The head of the country’s anti-organised crime brigade, Marco Vidal that Mr McAfee was wanted “for homicide”.

However, in an extraordinary interview with technology magazine Wired, apparently given while on the run in the Central American country, Mr McAfee denied killing his neighbour and claimed that the Belize government had a vendetta against him.

He said he ran because he feared Mr Faull was killed by mistake and that he had been the real target of the shooting.

In the telephone interview he said: “I thought maybe they were coming for me. They mistook him for me. They got the wrong house, he said. They killed him. It spooked me out.”

He described how he had hidden from police under the sand and claimed that if the Belize police found him they would “kill” him.

Mr Faull, 52, a retired builder, was found dead inside his two-storey home north of San Pedro, on the island of Ambergris Caye, on Sunday morning.
