Can money buy you happiness? Not in the case of Internet Giant John McAfee. McAfee is a household name globally, at least as fas as computer savvy individuals go. Now he is a wanted man on the run from the law.
John McAfee is wanted in connection with the death of his neighbour. Both men are Americans. It looks as if a dispute between Mr McAfee and 52-year-old Gregory Faull, may have ended in tragedy. McAfee has been named as a "person of interest" in this case by police. As yet though only McAfee knows what happened and he is doing his utmost to stay one step ahead of the law.
Both men lived on the Caribbean Island of Ambergris Caye, Belize. A tropical paradise that turned out to be anything but.
There have been reports that a row between the two men was followed by McAfee's dogs being poisoned. He blamed Faull and allegedly killed the man. At this stage of the inquiries though that is all it is, allegations. The fact that he is now on the run may lead people to belive that he is guilty but he is only wanted for questioning.
Mr McAfee now appears to believe that it is all a government conspiracy. He is adamant that he did not kill Faull and that man probably did not kill his four dogs. This is where the conspiracy theory of his comes in.
McAfee has a known record for having weapons and drugs at his Belize home. He sounds an unpopular man locally with many saying that he is paranoid. He has now changed his appearance and admitted he lmay now look like a murderer.
Today, November 15, 2012, the PM of Belize has asked that he return to face the music. The authorities want to question him. He seems to believe that they are out get him and he will not return. He has said that he knows he can only evade the law for so long and inevitably he will be caught.
If his state of mind is as bad as reported there is a fair chance that he could harm himself or others. There could be another tragedy waiting in the wings.
