Software pioneer McAfee says framed for murder in Belize (In Hiding)

Computer security industry pioneer John McAfee says he has gone into hiding in Belize because he believes authorities there are trying to frame him for the murder of a neighbor, a crime he says he did not commit, according to Wired magazine.

Belize police are searching for McAfee as "a person of interest" in a murder investigation.

"You can say I'm paranoid about it, but they will kill me, there is no question. They've been trying to get me for months. They want to silence me," Wired quoted McAfee as saying on its website. "I am not well liked by the prime minister. I am just a thorn in everybody's side."

The magazine reported that McAfee, 67, contacted one of its reporters by telephone after his neighbor Gregory Faull, was found dead on Sunday in a pool of blood. The 52-year-old American was apparently shot in the head.

Police say McAfee had a history of conflict with Faull, whose post-mortem was expected to be conducted on Tuesday.

McAfee, who amassed a fortune by building the anti-virus company that bears his name, has homes and businesses in the Central American country where police say he has lived for at least two years.

It was not the first time McAfee, who has tattoos, a goatee and moustache, and a penchant for guns, has drawn police attention.

Give me his money and his problems.

I could buy my way out of this problem and have change left to buy a small South American country (which is certainly an option for buying one’s way out of trouble).

Well, I put it where the Sun don’t shine
The way I always do
How was I to know
My neighbor’d be murdered too

I was living in Belize
I took a little risk
Send Lawyers, Guns and Money
Norton, Get me out of this

I’m the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the anus and the finger
Now I’m down on my luck

Now I’m hiding on the Beach
I’m a desperate man
Send Lawyers, Guns and Money
The Crap has hit the Fan

He’s just an Excitable Boy

Well, all you people looking to escape the evil USA should consider getting a cabanas from the friendly folks in Belize. If it doesn’t work out, make sure you got a .50 cal to shoot your way out to Venezuela and the warm embrace of Hugo. His blessings start at $1 million per family member.
