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."

He will vanish with his billions and drop off the news...if he is ever caught I will bet he does not spend one day in jail...there are two standards for conduct on this planet, those with big bucks live by a different set of rules then you or me. The courts and police treat those with wealth with kid gloves.

Maybe he could have the whole matter transferred to one of the pathetic judges in the Californian Celebrity Courts where he'll walk away scot free even though the blood was dripping from the knife.

I bought the McAfee after the free trial on my new netbook ran out.
Not sure I totally love it.
It does seem to filter out a LOT.
(BTW--He's a douche! LOOK at those lame tats. LOLs!!! I hear Belize is beautiful, but it's a friggin' third-world country! Who'd want to LIVE there? Ugh. Shady!)
