John McAfee

John McAfee -- the millionaire who created McAfee Antivirus software -- was arrested in Guatemala yesterday for entering the country illegally ... while still considered a "person of interest" in a murder case in Belize.

According to reports, Guatemalan officials -- along with Interpol agents -- detained 67-year-old McAfee at a hotel in an upscale part of Guatemala City.

McAfee has been on the lam ever since he was named a person of interest in the murder of his neighbor in Belize -- where McAfee had been living for several years.

McAfee's lawyer is battling to keep John from being returned to Belize, claiming his life will be in danger because "he has denounced authorities."

I read that he said that he didn't commit the murder and the reason he ran was because he didn't want to pay the bribe the politicians there were trying to extort from him. My problem with this is that he is a rich guy that can afford lawyers and can make a big stink about being extorted. Having a real hard time believing that he is innocent.

The guy is presently worth less than $4 million by most reports.He got $100 million when his company was sold but squandered most of it in bad investments. His company was later sold for a billion+ but he didn't have a financial interest in that transaction.

He hasn't been a billionaire for many moons now, TMZ, and his active involvement with his eponymous company ended even longer ago.

Innocent people do not run from the police. This guy is a murderer and should be returned to face those charges. I have no doubt they found something in his house that ties him to this murder.
