John Mcafees Heart of Darkness Continues As He Tweets and Blogs While On The Lamb…

This story just keeps getting stranger and stranger:

“This” is a full-blown international media frenzy and the kind of
mess that no politician could have seen coming. It started on Nov. 11, the
morning that Gregory Faull, a 52-year-old American, was found dead, lying face
up in a pool of blood in his home. He had been shot in the head. His laptop and iPhone were missing. A 9-millimeter shell was
found nearby.

What happened next turned this from a local crime story to
worldwide news: The police announced that a “person of interest” in the
investigation was a neighbor, John McAfee, a Silicon Valley legend who years
ago earned millions from the computer virus-fighting software company that
still bears his name.

A priapic 67-year-old, with an improbable mop of blond-highlighted
hair and a rotating group of young girlfriends, Mr. McAfee quickly melted into
the island’s lush green forest. Then, for Belizean authorities, the real
embarrassment began.

Asserting his innocence, Mr. McAfee became a multiplatform
cyberdissident, with a Twitter account, and a blog at with audio links, a comments section,
photographs and a stream of invective against the government and the police of
Belize. He has done interviews on podcasts, like the “Joe Rogan Experience,”
and offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of “the
person or persons” who killed Mr. Faull. He has turned lamming it into a kind
of high-tech performance art.
