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."

The guy's dirty. We know it, he knows it and this is just a last gasp effort, a clinging by the fingernails, to escape the long arm of the law. Soon the holdout will end, everyone will get down to business and this jerk will be behind bars, where he belongs.

Why would you run so hard to get away from a murder scene? And then do PR with the press? And cross into another country illegally? Answer 1: You're crazy. Answer 2: You did the murder. Answer 3: All of the above.

He could be kicking back on a beach in Belize without a care, but he just had to kill somebody.

Funny - I'd have thought his international intrigue would involve more computer espionage.

I think the more interesting part of the story is how a VICE photographer accidentally gave away his location by taking an iPhone photo without disabling GPS.
