In really unexpected news – McAfee on the lam

U.S. antivirus legend John McAfee wanted for murder in Belize
John McAfee, the estranged founder of the antivirus firm that bears his name, is wanted by the Belize police in connection with a murder, has confirmed.

McAfee, whose very name is synonymous with security, is a prime suspect in the murder of American expatriate Gregory Faull, a well-liked builder from California who was shot Saturday night at his home in San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye, according to a series of exposes on tech blog Gizmodo. Vienne Robinson, assistant superintendent of the San Pedro police department in Belize, told that police are actively searching for McAfee.

“We are looking for him in connection with the murder,” Robinson told “No one has been charged with murder yet,” she said, noting that there is one suspect already in custody.

The 52-year-old Faull was found by the housekeeper on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 11, lying face up in a pool of blood with an apparent gunshot wound on the upper rear part of his head, according to a police report posted on Gizmodo.

McAfee’s life has turned in recent years from cybersecurity to drugs, guns, prostitution and violence, explained Jeff Wise, a freelance reporter who broke the story for Gizmodo. “He will tell you he moved to Belize for the good life, for the country, to rescue the Belizean people from poverty,” Wise told In reality, McAfee became embroiled in bath salts and the quest for the ultimate high, he said.

Finally a scandal that has nothing to do with the election or Benghazi. I expect 24/7 breathless media news coverage on this.

Open thread.

    I expect the murder weapon is not a Fast & Furious gun.

    Yeah! Texas is petitioning to secede from Obamaland! 👿

      They’re using the petition site because the WH will only respond to them if they get 25,000 signatures. Last I heard, there’s 20 more states too.

      Ain’t gonna happen, but glad I’m on the side with the guns 😉

    Yet another wrap up of the election, but I like this ending….gee don’t we wish our party won all the time? Lot’s of exit poll numbers and demos pointing too our lousy media, uninformed voters and general malaise. 😀

    Macy’s to dump Trump as spokesman ? (I didn’t know he was)

    I think I’m already boycotting Trump by not buying one of his gazzilion dollar penthouse apts in Manhattan. Sorry for the huffpo link, but I figured it must be true /snork.

    For those of you who like to take polls…. Keith has one up about fixting the GOP messaging.

    Blech and double blech – Just saw that our local library has a book on why many predictions fail and some don’t written by Nate Silver which tells me the fix was in from the beginning.
