The millionaire software genius behind the McAfee antivirus programs is wanted for murder in Belize — this according to reports.
According to Gizmodo.com, Belize police claim John McAfee is the prime suspect in the shooting death of an American expatriate named Gregory Faull.
McAfee — whose software company sold to Intel in 2010 for $7 billion — has been living in Belize for a while now.
Details around the alleged argument between McAfee and Faull are unclear, but police claim Faull had filed a formal complaint about McAfee with the local mayor’s office recently, claiming McAfee had been firing off guns and exhibiting “roguish behavior.”
Gizmodo has published a statement from the San Pedro police, which says Faull was found lying face up “in a pool of blood.” Police have not established a motive.
According to Gizmodo’s report, police claim McAfee is currently “on the run from murder charges.”
