John McAfee, anti-virus software inventor, reportedly wanted for murder in Belize

McAfee

Update: On Monday afternoon, McAfee officials said in a statement, “John McAfee has no current affiliation with the company and hasn’t for a long time, and we don’t comment on former employees.” 

John McAfee of McAfee anti-virus software fame is reportedly wanted for the murder of American expatriate Gregory Paul, who was killed on Saturday night, according to Gizmodo's Jeff Wise, who cites Belize police for his exclusive. (We have not located local news reports of the incident at this time.) According to Wise, police say McAfee is on the run and a prime suspect in the murder. Also, "the two men have been at odds for some time," the most recent argument having to do with dogs. Paul had filed a complain with the Mayor's office about McAfee for his "roguish behavior," notes Wise. 

This news comes just a few days after Gizmodo ran a long story about McAfee's increasingly erratic and borderline criminal behavior. In it, he sounds paranoid as he talks about people wanting to take his money and kill him—and he admits to having associated with gangsters in Belize.
