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."
