McAfee Security Pioneer On the Run for Murder?

John McAfee, 67, McAfee anti-virus pioneer, is a "person of interest" in the shooting death of his neighbor, Gregory Faull, 52.

The anti-virus software world has gone rogue.  Who knew that a software developer would lose his mind on drugs and kill his neighbor?  No one.

John McAfee, 67, is the creator of the famous McAfee anti-virus software seen and/or offered on most computers throughout the world.  The eccentric software developer resides in Belize and is now “a person of interest” in the murder of his neighbor, Gregory Faull, 52, an American expatriate and builder from Florida that was “well-liked,”according to USA Today.

Faull was found in his home laying in a pool of blood after someone apparently shot him in the head.  Faull and McAfee had not been getting along and Faull reported McAfee to the Mayor.  The report stated:

“Last Wednesday, Faull filed a formal complaint against McAfee with the mayor’s office, asserting that McAfee had fired off guns and exhibited ‘roguish behavior,’ ” Gizmodo reported. “Their final disagreement apparently involved dogs.”

Apparently, since McAfee left the software company behind in 1992, he’s been dabbling in other things.  The Belize Gang Suppression Unit arrested him on April 30, for “unlicensed drug manufacturing — reportedly methamphetamine — and possession of an unlicensed weapon.” Not only that, reportedly he was with his 17-year-old Belizean girlfriend when he was nabbed.  But the government dropped the charges and McAfee is suing for false arrest.  He said he was being strong armed because “he refused to donate money to a local politician.”

Gizmodo reported that McAfee is involved in the “intensive use of psychosis-inducing hallucinogens” and hanging with “some of the most notorious gangsters in Belize.” It appears that McAfee has taken up a new interest…drugs.  He has started a full chemistry lab to help in his interest in “extracting medicine from jungle plants” in order to “combat pathogenic bacteria through anti-quorum sensing medicines,” according to PC Magazine.
