    Default McAfee, gets rid of viruses, trojans, malware and erm... human rivals?

    John McAfee, the man who originally founded McAfee Security, is now wanted for murder in Belize. He has been named as the prime suspect in the death of another American expat, Gregory Faull, who was shot and killed in his home Saturday evening in San Pedro Town, off the Belizean mainland.

    Ars e-mailed and called the American embassy in Belmopan, the Belizean capital, to find out if McAfee had requested or received consular assistance, but embassy officials have not yet replied.

    As Gizmodo and others have been reporting on for years, the murder suspect has been something of an eccentric adventurer and entrepreneur. He was effectively forced from the company he founded in the early 1990s, but he managed to take in around $100 million in the process. Since then, among other things, he pioneered something called “aerotrekking,” a short-lived thrill “sport” of sorts that involves high-speed low-altitude flying over the desert with hang gliders outfitted with engines.

    In 2006, McAfee was charged with a wrongful death lawsuit in an aerotrekking accident that left a man named Robert Gilson dead.

    "I think he is trying to liquidate all property that could be used to collect a judgment, so that it's all beyond the reach of execution in the United States," Frank Fleming, an aviation law specialist, told Fast Company in 2010. "So long as McAfee and the vast majority of his wealth remain in Belize, it's going to be very hard for the family of Robert Gilson to collect any judgment won against McAfee in court."

    Since then, McAfee has reportedly been spending his time researching MDPV, a stimulant that can produce similar effects to methamphetamine. It is illegal in the United States.

    Man 1: I'd call it "Flying dangerously close to the ground at dangerously high speeds because people think glider pilots aren't badass"
    McAfee: Bull****, we are badass. Lets call it 'aerotrekking"
    Man 1: That is badass, but people won't see it as an extreme sport.
    McAfee: We'll have someone die then. After all, every extreme sport only became extreme once someone died or broke a few bones.
    Man 1: Okay, I'm a little uncomfortable with that. What's the next step after gliders with engines?
    McAfee: I've been making a few rough sketches...

    Arrested in Guacamole ! Hmmm Nachos ....

    After three weeks on the lam, John McAfee, the computer programmer and founder of the McAfee security software company, has been arrested by Guatemalan authorities for illegally entering the country, reports Reuters. McAfee is wanted for questioning in relation to the November 11th murder of his neighbor in Belize, 52-year-old Gregory Faull. Earlier this month, VICE traveled to Central America to document McAfee's run from the law, accidentally publishing a cellphone picture with embedded GPS data, CBS News reported. The data revealed that 67-year-old McAfee had managed to make it across the Belizean border to Guatemala, where he applied for political asylum in a press conference earlier today. AFP reports that McAfee appeared alongside his newly-retained lawyer, Telesforo Guerra, the former Guatemalan Attorney General. He is reportedly being held under police guard at a residence belonging to the country's immigration department.

    His stay looks to be short-lived, however, as the Guatemalan Interior Ministry plans to expel McAfee back to Belize for crossing the border illegally. According to Reuters, a government spokesman said the process is expected to be completed by early Thursday morning. There is currently no international arrest warrant for McAfee, and he is only listed as a "person of interest," not a prime suspect, in Faull's death. In a recently-published video from VICE (below), McAfee states his alibi in the case, saying:

    "I think there's nothing to prove. I was not there, I was with Sam (girlfriend Sam Vanegas) the entire night. I've had more than half a dozen witnesses to the fact. I had no motive. I had no access to a 9-millimeter (handgun) — I don't know what there is to prove, really."
