Antivirus Pioneer John McAfee Wanted For Murder
John McAfee, 67, the American computer programmer who was one of the first people to develop an anti-virus scanner, founding security software company, McAfee, Inc., in 1987, is reportedly on the run from authorities in Belize, as he is the prime suspect in the alleged murder of American expatriate and restaurant owner Gregory Faull.
Faull was reportedly shot on Saturday night at his San Pedro Town home on the island of Ambergris Caye, reports Gizmodo. According to locals, Faull and McAfee "had been at odds for some time," reportedly over a disagreement that involved dogs. Faull had also apparently filed a formal complaint against McAfee, saying that the latter had "fired off guns and exhibited 'roguish behavior.'"
Reports suggest that McAfee's behavior had been getting increasingly erratic before the event, and that he had even been connected to gangsters in Belize. McAfee had also apparently been preoccupied with purifying the psychoactive compounds in the drug known as "bath salts."
"I'm a huge fan of MDPV," he wrote. "I think it's the finest drug ever conceived, not just for the indescribably hypersexuality, but also for the smooth euphoria and mild comedown."
Several of McAfee's comments revealed personal experiences with different strands of drugs, one that gave him, according to a post under what is thought to be his handle of "stuffmonger," "visual and auditory hallucinations and the worst paranoia of my life."
McAfee has been known for having an interest in extracting medicine from jungle plants for some time, according to Gizmodo, as well as using his amateur pharmacological skills to "induce sexual behavior in women." Some former friends of McAfee described him as being overly persistent in efforts to "coerce" women to have sex with him.
MDVP, which is illegal in the states but legal in Belize, has been known to create paranoia and intense, sustained anxiety in some users. McAfee was also booked on drug charges in Belize in May, reports CNet.
