Anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee has denied murdering his neighbour and says that if the Belizean police find him they will kill him. Belizean police said they want to question McAfee, 67, about the murder of Florida native Gregory Faull, who was shot in the back of the head.
McAfee told CNBC television that he had been accused of something he didn't do. But he would not turn himself in because the police want to "shake him down" and extort money from him. He is moving from one place to another every four hours. Police spokesman Raphael Martinez said that McAfee was "not suspected of murder" they just wanted to have a quiet word with him. Earlier in the year, police searched McAfee's mansion looking for weapons and drugs. The millionaire, however, claimed he was arrested because he refused to make a donation to a local politician's campaign.
McAfee had been hiding on his property during the police raid, burying himself in the sand with a cardboard box over his head so he could breathe. McAfee said he knew "nothing" about the murder other than Faull had been shot. He was worried that Faull's killers had actually been looking for him. He said that he was not willingly going to talk to the police in this country.
While many would think him paranoid, he is certain that they would kill him. They've been trying to get me for months.
