Embattled software mogul and Clinton critic John McAfee found dead of reported suicide

John McAfee, software entrepreneur and outspoken critic of everyone from Hillary Clinton to the CIA, was found dead of a suspected suicide in his jail cell in Spain Wednesday, soon after a court in that country granted a request that he be extradited to the United States to face tax-related and other charges, according to the Associated Press.

McAfee first gained fame for his pioneering work in the realm of antivirus computer software, but became known in recent years for his eccentric lifestyle, involvement in the cryptocurrency world, his anti-taxation stance, and the legal woes that followed him around the globe.

Though he lived essentially as a fugitive from justice for the past several years, McAfee was facing tax evasion charges in the U.S. in addition to charges connected to alleged cryptocurrency fraud, as Reuters noted, and had battled in recent weeks to defeat extradition, arguing that at age 75, any conviction would effectively result in life imprisonment.

Spanish authorities reported that McAfee was discovered in his cell at the Brians 1 facility in the northeastern part of the country, and though resuscitation efforts were made, they were unsuccessful, also opining that “everything points to death by suicide.”

Fans of McAfee and skeptics of the suicide theory have since pointed to social media posts made by the now-deceased mogul in which he suggested that if reports ever emerged that he had died by his own hand, they were untrue and should not be believed. On Friday, McAfee’s widow, Janice, denied that her husband was suicidal, citing a telephone conversation they had shortly before his death.

Back in late 2019, McAfee posted on Twitter, “Getting subtle messages from U.S. officials saying, in effect, ‘We’re coming for you McAffee! We’re going to kill yourself,” and he added the admonition, “If I suicide myself, I didn’t. I was whackd.”

McAfee had a history of lobbing harsh criticism at powerful political leaders in the United States and abroad, including in 2016 when he publicly opined that Hillary Clinton’s self-admitted lack of knowledge on cybersecurity issues was “frightening” and rendered her unqualified to serve as the nation’s commander in chief. He also had a habit of implying that he possessed a great deal of incriminating information on key public figures that American authorities would go to extreme lengths to keep secret.

That ominous prediction was seemingly reinforced by McAfee in October of last year when he took to Twitter to say, “Know that if I hang myself, a la [Jeffrey] Epstein, it will be no fault of mine,” a reference to the disgraced financier, sex offender, and suspected keeper of Clinton-related secrets who also reportedly died by suicide in a prison cell under circumstances that remain suspicious to this day.
