John McAfee, who started the antivirus software giant named after him, has been accused of murder in Belize, Gizmodo reported today.

According to the report, McAfee is wanted by Belize's Gang Suppression Unit in the murder of American expat Gregory Paul.

Police in Belize say that Paul, a popular builder, was shot Saturday night. "The two men had been at odds for some time," Gizmodo wrote. "Last Wednesday, Paul filed a formal complaint against McAfee with the mayor's office, asserting that McAfee had fired off guns and exhibited 'roguish behavior.' Their final disagreement apparently involved dogs."

Did he have any financial interest in McAfee?

Not according to this ...

This isn't the first time that McAfee has had run-ins with police in Belize. In May, the security software pioneer, who cashed out of the security firm that bears his name many years ago, was booked on drug charges there.

He's apparently a big fan/user/promoter of bath salts. That stuff seems to make people go crazy. A guy here in Miami got wasted on them and was found naked on one of our causeways gnawing off the face of a homeless guy.

a while back I saw a nice short television interview of him.

I think it was part of this story: [msnbc.msn.com...]


I remember him saying he was concerned about how to make money off of something with almost zero production costs. (additional copies of his software). He decided to give it away. then charge for updates.
I think that worked for him. :)

@creeking, shows the value of thinking up a business model that works. Unless you are MS, or producing something high value or specialist it is very difficult to sell software (or, increasingly, films, music, books...).

I really need to get out more. You mean ... uhm ... uh ... taken internally?

Yowch.

taken internally?

Yes, taken internally via smoking, snorting and injecting. But it's not the same stuff you add to your bath at the end of a long tough day. It's a chemical called methylenedioxypyrovalerone, also known as MDPV, and is highly psychoactive.

Yuh, I think that's probably the longest word ever posted on this forum.

methylenedioxypyrovalerone


Sounds like provolone cheese infused with carbon dioxide and splashed (for the bath effect) with a hint of mint. Any good with toast?

If it's any good, you ARE toast.

The latest news seems to be that McAfee is in hiding because he's convinced he was the intended target of the assailant. Police in Belize have stated they want to interview him as a "person of interest," not a suspect.

I'm not sure, but I do know that Sriracha sauce is awesome on toast! :)

interview him as a "person of interest,"

Is that like "assisting the police with their inquiries"? (Remember, in the US we've generally lagged several decades behind on this stuff.)

It's usually a euphemistic phrase used by law enforcement instead of "suspect" when announcing the name of someone they think was involved in a crime, but where there's not enough evidence to formally charge the person with a crime. Still, naming someone as a person of interest often results in a trial by media, as seems to be happening now with Mr. McAfee.
