John McAfee, the pioneer of anti-virus software is reported dead by commiting suicide in a Spain prison. Is he dead? Probably not. Based on John’s past adventures, the chance of death by suicide is extremely low.
A quick history recap, McAfee escaped Belize when the police wanted him for questioning about the death of his neighbor. Suspecting the Belize government at the time would most likely murder him, he dissapeared and got out of Belize. He ended up in prison and faked a heart attack. This just is who McAfee is.
The report of John McAfees death lasts substance, namely a picture of the body, which of course can be faked, but is a lot more substantive than the jail saying he killed himself.
If you ever spent much time talking to John, he’s the type who confronts governments and won’t back down, so allegedly committing suicide because he was being extradited doesn’t hold up to his personal character.
So is John McAfee dead or alive? Right now, we really don’t know. At this point he is schrodingers McAfee, both possibly dead and possibly alive simultaneously.
