John McAfee, 76 and creator of McAfee Antivirus Software, the world’s first Commerical Antivirus Software, has been found dead in his prison cell in Barcelona. He was previously charged on tax evasion, and had just been approved for extradition to the U.S.
In October 2020, John McAfee was arrested in Spain as he was about to board a plane heading to Turkey, where he was accused of not filing tax returns for the past four years, despite him “earning millions from consulting work, speaking engagements, crypto-currencies and selling the rights to his life story.”
The US Justice Department alleged that “McAfee evaded tax liability by having his income paid into bank accounts and cryptocurrency exchange accounts in the names of nominees.” McAfee was also accused of “concealing assets, including a yacht and real estate property, also in other people’s names.”
Mainstream News Sources state John McAfee “committed suicide”, although direct evidence suggests otherwise. Twitter has even started a hashtag #McAfeeDidntKillHimself, #McAfeeDidntEpsteinHimself, and #McAfeeDidntUninstallHimself. This theory [that he was killed] comes from his twitter posts he made while in prison, in which he stated he didn’t want to die. He leaves behind his wife Janice Dyson.
McAfee stated he was being hunted by U.S. Officials for his secret recordings of government, his “unwillingness to play by the rules”, his exposing the corruption of government, as well as alleged possession of hidden Cryptocurrency. Hours after he was approved for extradition to the U.S., McAfee was found dead.
In a 2012 interview with Alex Jones, John McAfee was asked questions from Twitter, regarding his involvement in a murder he was accused of, while living in Belize:
Twitter: “Why don’t you give yourself to the authories for due process?”
John McAfee: “Because the due process of throwing me in a cell, hanging me with my own belt, and then telling the world that Mr. McAfee, in shame, hung himself, is not exactly what I would like to do this day.”
Here are Mr. McAfee’s personal tweets, which back up the theory that state John McAfee was in fact murdered. He death was ruled by media as “suicide by hanging”.
John McAfee was not a bad person. His intent was to help protect not just the computers of the world, but also the citizens of America. He fought corruption with information, which may have ultimately led to his death. It’s difficult to believe his wild character would give up life so easily, especially with his previous warnings that his life was being threatened, and he didn’t want to end up being “hung in prison”.
Here are his tweets from prison leading up to his death:
John McAfee was outspoken against the corruption of power in government, and routinely would inform his audience about the atrocities erupting in our country.
