    John McAfee: antivirus entrepreneur found dead in Spanish prison

    The antivirus software entrepreneur John McAfee has been found dead in his cell in Spain, hours after the country’s national court approved his extradition to the United States, where he was wanted on tax-related criminal charges that carry a prison sentence of up to 30 years...

    ....“Judicial staff have been dispatched to the prison and are investigating the causes of death,” the statement said, adding: “Everything points to death by suicide.”

    Too bad, he was an exemple on how to clean money using crypto.
    But comit suicide just because interpol catched him and spain accepted the extradition to USA is a bit too much.
    Anyway R.I.P.

    I've been reading this morning about his life and accomplishments, and had no idea this was actually a person! I always mistakenly thought "McAfee" was just a brand name like "Dr Watson" No joke!

    RIP John.

    Suspected of murder, accused of rape by his employee, apparently not a pleasant person.

    Brilliant but unfortunately a very troubled person. Accused of awful crimes and truly suffered from mental illness. Conspiracies were always around about him but in truth, he needed help BADLY.

    This is a sad story indeed. :(

    Apparently, there's some conspiracy surrounding his death. Some people believe he was suicided.

    I'm not sure if that's an official tweet from McAfee.

    EDIT: The tweet was from 2019 - https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521

    This one's interesting too - https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096

    I'm surprised they haven't changed the name after all this time.

    Well that’s another “ suicide “ in the prison cell , but who cares .
    I wonder if the prison guards will enter the early “ retirement “
    Like the Epstein’s guards did shortly after he
    “ took his own life “
    Just as all the security cameras little bit inconveniently malfunctioned ….
    Oh life is full of coincidences you know don’t think about it too much and don’t worry you are in capable hands I can assure you of that
