Default John McAfee hiding from Belize authorities

I hope he gets a fair trial.

Eccentric Tech Wizard Wanted for Questioning in Murder
http://news.yahoo.com/eccentric-tech...opstories.html

"John McAfee, the tech wizard who developed the McAfee anti-virus software in the 1980s and helped pioneer instant messaging in the 1990s, is wanted for questioning by Belize Police in connection with the murder of a neighbor and fellow American expatriate.

Police say 52-year-old Gregory Faull was found dead in his tropical island hacienda on Sunday -- discovered lying face down in a pool of blood by his housekeeper. Police say he was shot in the back of the head. Gang Suppression Unit commander Marco Vidal told ABC News that McAfee was one of several individuals wanted for questioning. Belize Police spokesman Raphael Martinez also said that McAfee is one of several "persons of interest" in the inquiry.

But McAfee told Wired magazine he was innocent, and that he watched police search his property from a hole he'd buried in the sand covering himself with a cardboard box. "It was extremely uncomfortable," he told Wired, adding, 'You can say I'm paranoid about it but they will kill me, there is no question. They've been trying to get me for months."

He gave away his hiding place.

I salivate watching house hunters international, but it obviously glosses over the details of life as a non native in a foreign country on a variety of fronts.

A couple years ago before I knew a lot about computers, I used McAfee.

But now, I use MSE on all my PCs, and never have virus problems .
