McAfee escapes Belize

Written by Nick Farrell

Does not say where he is hiding


U.S. anti-virus software guru John McAfee said that he has managed to flee the Caribbean country of Belize where police want to question him in connection with a neighbour’s murder. McAfee told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location said that he would not announce where he was heading until he was safe.

He said that every bordering country around Belize, for political, financial, legal reasons, is pretty much like Belize and our plan is to arrive in a safe country. McAfee has been on the run for three weeks since police in Belize said they wanted to question him as "a person of interest" about the murder of fellow American Gregory Faull.

He still thinks that authorities in Belize would kill him if he turned himself in for questioning. Belize's prime minister has called the 67-year-old paranoid and "bonkers" and pointed out that if he was killed by police it would create a huge stink for the country. 

McAfee said that the last person who the Belize police called in for questioning was handcuffed and shot him 14 times. They said that he tried to grab a gun and escape while he was surrounded by armed police. McAfee has been posting updates from hiding on his blog www.whoismcafee.com, saying he is accompanied by two journalists from Vice magazine and a woman called Sam.

Police in Belize say McAfee is somewhere in the country, so if he isn’t, he is doing rather well.
