7:43PM EST November 12. 2012 - John McAfee, the eccentric 67-year-old pioneer of computer antivirus software, is wanted for questioning about the slaying of a neighbor in Belize, police said Monday.

McAfee is a "person of interest" in the killing of American expatriate, Gregory Faull, who was shot and killed Saturday night at his home on the island of Ambergris Caye, a police spokesman said.

The tech gadget site Gizmodo published an official police statement issued Monday that said the body of Faull, a well-liked 52-year-old builder from Florida, was found Sunday in a pool of blood from an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

The San Pedro Sun confirmed that police were looking for McAfee in connection with Faull's death. Marco Vidal, director of the national police force's Gang Suppression Unit, told the newspaper that officers searching McAfee's home next door found no one there.

A police spokesman told the Associated Press that Faull's computer and phone were missing, but there were no signs of forced entry.

Jeff Wise, writing for Gizmodo, reported that McAfee and Faull had been "at odds for some time."

"Last Wednesday, Faull filed a formal complaint against McAfee with the mayor's office, asserting that McAfee had fired off guns and exhibited 'roguish behavior,' " Gizmodo reported. "Their final disagreement apparently involved dogs."

This is totally Déjà vu, was something similar not posted sometime ago? Not the same person but also a person of interest in a murder.

On topic: Ya, guns and people, what can one add to that! :rolleyes:

Besk joke I've seen today is:

Antivirus pioneer John McAfee is wanted by the Police for murder charges. If they catch him they estimate the trial could last 30 days... :rofl:

You do understand that it is entirely possible to survive a gunshot wound to the head, and even a substantial loss of blood?

"Wanted for questioning" and "wanted for murder" are completely different things.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

I just want to clarify something: I'm not laughing at the guy's outcome or anything, it was just the timing of what they said when they said it. I don't wish any harm to anyone, it just struck me as funny is all. No harm intended. Love you neowin! :)

Human malware.

Methinks the company is due for a name change - they will want to distance themselves from this fellow.
