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."

IBM might want to consider changing the name of that software before things get really nasty.

It always boggles my mind that guys like this along with a Mouammar Kadhafi would allow themselves to get caught or kill ,,if you are a BILLIONAIRE there is no way on this green planet you should be getting caught .

You can BUY yourself into obscurity ; be it by finding some place at the end of the earth or with the help of any DICTATOR take your pick .I can assure you some banana republic leader if the price is right would take this guy in and even make him their housemate.

I guess the ARREST Virus was one little Trojan he couldn't keep out .bwhahaha

Instead of rocking and living life in his mega $$, this idiot gets involved in criminal crap and lives like a freaking gypsy. Just plain stupid. His creepy looking azz would make a good actor for a Vincent Price movie though.

I don't understand why he did not stay in Belize, I am sure with his billions he could have paid some1 off or paid some1 to take the rap for the crime...not saying this is right but this what happens all the time..

Billionaire? Where do you get this? NYT repoted his net worth at $4M, down from $100M, following a string of bad investments. It is suggested he moved to low cost Belize so his limited fortune would go further.
