Antivirus pioneer John McAfee wanted for murder in Belize According to Gizmodo, estranged antivirus pioneer John McAfee is wanted on murder charges in Belize.
McAfee, who built the software giant with his own name, is accused of murdering American expatriate Gregory Paul, who was a popular builder in the nation.

Paul was killed on Saturday night, says the site, adding: "The two men had been at odds for some time. Last Wednesday, Paul filed a formal complaint against McAfee with the mayor's office, asserting that McAfee had fired off guns and exhibited 'roguish behavior.' Their final disagreement apparently involved dogs."

Additionally, McAfee is said to have begun associating with "notorious gangsters" and also begun taking "bath salts," the drug that leads to psychoactive episodes including extreme violence in some cases.

Posting on a Russian message board, McAfee spoke about his love of the drug, says the report: "Writing under the name 'stuffmonger,' a handle [McAfee] used on other online message boards, [he] posted more than 200 times over the next nine months about his ongoing quest to purify psychoactive drugs from compounds commercially available over the Internet. 'I'm a huge fan of MDPV,' he wrote. 'I think it's the finest drug ever conceived, not just for the indescribable hypersexuality, but also for the smooth euphoria and mild comedown.'"

Note to self: "bath salts" may not be the wonder drug some have made them out to be.

At least he didn't eat the guy's face, I guess.

hmmm, maybe someone killed his dog. If so, I would have to side with McAfee.

But true, I never liked the software either.

Lets hope the evidence is better than McAfee's Virus detection otherwise there will be a lot missed, many false positives, all while taking up too much resources.
