In strange news, founder of McAfee anti-virus software is wanted for murder
One word can sum this up: strange. The founder of the well known anti-virus computer software McAfee, is wanted for murder in Belize. Apparently John McAfee moved away to Belize some time ago so he could pursue his second love aside from being a programmer: drugs.
In some sort of twisted altercation between John McAfee and another American expatriate Gregory Faull, the two became at odds and over the weekend things escalated to a point of no return and McAfee is now wanted for murdering Faull. The Belize Police Department issued a statement that reads:
On Sunday the 11th November, 2012 at 8:00am acting upon information received, San Pedro Police visited 5 ¾ miles North of San Pedro Town where they saw 52 year old U.S National Mr. GREGORY VIANT FAULL, of the said address, lying face up in a pool of blood with an apparent gunshot wound on the upper rear part of his head apparently dead. Initial investigation revealed that on the said date at 7:20am LUARA TUN, 39years, Belizean Housekeeper of Boca Del Rio Area, San Pedro Town went to the house of Mr. Faull to do her daily chores when she saw him laying inside of the hall motionless, Faull was last seen alive around 10:00pm on 10.11.12 and he lived alone. No signs of forced entry was seen, A (1) laptop computer brand and serial number unknown and (1) I-Phone was discovered missing. The body was found in the hall of the upper flat of the house. A single luger brand 9 mm expended shells was found at the first stairs leading up to the upper flat of the building. The body of Faull was taken to KHMH Morgue where it awaits a Post Mortem Examination. Police have not established a motive so far but are following several leads.
