John McAfee 
-- the millionaire who created McAfee Antivirus software -- has been released from custody in Guatemala ... where he was arrested for allegedly entering the country illegally, while still considered a "person of interest" in a Belizean murder case.

After his release, 67-year-old McAfee told reporters, "I'm free. I'm going to America." He said he plans to catch a flight to Miami.

Guatemalan immigration officials have already escorted McAfee to the Guatemala City airport.

As we reported, McAfee has been on the run 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 has said returning the software mogul to Belize could effectively be a death sentence ... because McAfee "has denounced authorities."

He didn't like paying the taxes in the US, so he runs off to a south american country. And now that he is possibly in trouble it's......run back to good ol' USA.

WOW, so that's how you do murder: you do it in Belize, IMO.

This should send a message to all of the rich American criminals who live in Mexico thinking they can do whatever they want there and get away with it.
