McAfee On the Run From Murder Investigators

The dogs were also the cause of tension between McAfee and Faull — and other neighbors. Faull had given the town council a letter complaining that McAfee's dogs were running loose and attacking people.

In a recent call to Wired's Davis, McAfee demonstrated his espionage abilities by describing the disguise he has adopted: dying his highlighted hair black, as well as his eyebrows, mustache and beard.

He also expressed his conviction that in his absence, police are planting evidence on his property. In addition, he raged against the arrests of some of his associates (allegedly for attempted bribery).

“This is exactly what happened to Soviet dissidents when Stalin took power," he said. "If they could not catch the man himself, they rounded up all of his friends."  

Belize authorities maintain that McAfee is simply wanted for questioning.

"It's too early in the investigation. To say he is a suspect would be a bold statement," Raphael Martinez, spokesman for Belize's Ministry of National Security told The Associated Press.

Still, McAfee informed the AP in an email that he was not planning on turning himself in.

"Suspect or no, I believe the government wants me out of the way. Too many people have died in custody in this country so I intend to do nothing that puts me in their custody," McAfee said.

John McAfee sold his interest in his namesake company in the early 1990s for a reported $100 million.
