McAfee founder sought in Belize murder case

Dan Nakaso for the San Jose Mercury News:

John McAfee, the Silicon Valley creator of an antivirus software that bears his name, was being sought Monday by police in Belize as a “person of interest” in the slaying of a fellow expatriate on an island where McAfee lived a high-profile existence, police said Monday.

McAfee left the company he founded in the early 90s, and later expatriated to Belize in 2008. Local police raided his home in April looking for drugs and guns, but released him later without being charged.

The murder victim was McAfee’s neighbor. His body was found by his housekeeper, with bullet in his head. Police haven’t announced a motive for the murder yet.
