John McAfee, creator of the popular anti-virus software McAfee, became involved in a murder case in Belize in 2012. Although McAfee hasn’t been officially charged, he is considered a “person of interest” in the murder of his neighbor, Gregory Faull, who was shot in the back of the head. McAfee, who believes he’s being framed, fled the Central American country and returned to the States. He and his wife, Janice, have moved from town to town but have finally settled in Lexington, Tennessee. No matter where he lives, McAfee lives in fear as he believes assassins have been sent from Belize to kill him. In Lexington, he has reported that someone fired shots at him in his truck and, on a separate occasion, affixed a bomb to the gas tank of the truck.
Although once worth more than $100 million, McAfee’s fortune has dwindled over the years. (He resigned from McAfee Associates in 1994.) But he’s getting back into tech, now at the age of 69. Near Auburn University, McAfee has started a fledgling incubator, Future Tense Central, to develop security apps. McAfee travels with guns and an armed security guard. Dateline NBC will air an interview with McAfee on March 26, 8pm on NBC.
