John McAfee found dead in spanish cell - News

26/June/2021

A jail source told Reuters that the software entrepreneur was sharing his cell with another inmate, but was alone when he died.

The creator of the world’s first commercial anti-virus software that was launched in 1987, McAfee was dogged by legal problems.

According to Spanish court documents seen by The Associated Press news agency, US federal prosecutors in Tennessee had charged McAfee with tax evasion and willfully failing to file tax returns to disclose more than $4.2m income made from promoting cryptocurrencies, speaking engagements and selling the documentary film rights to his life story.

The software legend was also charged in a separate cryptocurrency fraud case in New York.

McAfee, who was known for his eccentric behaviour, was arrested in October 2020 at Barcelona’s international airport. Aljazeera News
