The millionaire software genius behind the McAfee antivirus programs is wanted for murder in Belize -- this according to reports.

According to Gizmodo.com, Belize police claim John McAfee is the prime suspect in the shooting death of an American expatriate named Gregory Faull.

Faull was reportedly gunned down at his home in San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye on Saturday -- after an argument with McAfee had turned deadly.

McAfee -- whose software company sold to Intel in 2010 for $7 billion -- has been living in Belize for a while now.

Details around the alleged argument between McAfee and Faull are unclear, but police claim Faull had filed a formal complaint about McAfee with the local mayor's office recently, claiming McAfee had been firing off guns and exhibiting "roguish behavior."

Gizmodo has published a statement from the San Pedro police, which says Faull was found lying face up "in a pool of blood." Police have not established a motive.

According to Gizmodo's report, police claim McAfee is currently "on the run from murder charges."

We know how the Belize police works. $100k should make it go away.

Thanks TMZ, this is actually an interesting story. I think it is wierd though that I don't see it in any other news source (granted, I havn't looked too hard), nor have I heard of him doing bath salts and all this other information you all seem to know. Where are you all getting your news? I really must be missing out somewhere!

I think before we convict Mr McAfee in the press we should wait for the investigation...He is being sought for questioning only at this point. I am surprised TMZ has not probed into the background of expat Mr Faull prior to his relocation out of the US????

Nothing will happen to him because he is a millionaire.

Why is it that the people who will squander it the fastest on drugs or other crap get the most money?
