    WOW.

    Always knew his AV software sucked, but didn't figure him for a murderer.

    Gizmodo published an official police statement issued Monday that said the body of the well-liked 52-year-old builder from California was found in a pool of blood from an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

    The San Pedro Sun confirmed that police were looking for McAfee in connection with Faull's death. Vidal told the newspaper that officers searching McAfee's home next door found no one there.

    Jeff Wise, writing for Gizmodo, reported that McAfee and Faull had been "at odds for some time."

    From the article:

    3:50PM EST November 12. 2012 - John McAfee, the eccentric 67-year-old founder of the antivirus software company McAfee, Inc., is wanted for murder in Belize, Gizmodo reported Monday, citing Belize officials.

    Gizmodo quoted Marco Vidal, the head of the national police force's Gang Suppression unit, as saying McAFee is the prime suspect in the murder of an American expatriate, Gregory Faull, who was shot and killed Saturday night at his home on the island of Ambergris Caye.

    Here's the rather histrionically headlined Daily Mail account from 28 May 2012:

    Millionaire on the run: How the man who founded software giant McAfee lost his fortune and ended up hiding from
    police in Belize after they 'rousted him from the bed of a 17-year-old and shot his dog because he's running a meth lab'

    the tabloid tale at the link above

    Sounds like he had been headed for trouble for quite awhile. Sad.

    From the above link, McAfee spokeswoman Kim Eichorn told FoxNews.com the company doesn’t comment on former employees, and that McAfee is no longer associated with the company that bears his name.

    I wonder how this will impact the McAfee brand. Sounds like the company is already trying to distance itself.

    Not that that really matters. A man is dead and I just hope they find McAfee if he's the one who did it!!

    The prison in Belize (yes only one) is a very unpleasant place though if he doesn't get killed he can probably bribe the guards for better conditions and more drugs.

    Sheesh with all of his money why in the heck would he use bath salts? He could afford the finest illegal drugs in the world.

    Proof that money can't buy happiness. I'd rather be destitute my whole life than to end up like this dude.

    That was my first thought too when I read about the bath salts. Maybe not though. Sounds like he had blown through quite a lot of his fortune, if not all.
