Interview with McAfee on the run. Most media is updated to say, that McAfee is wanted for questioning, not the murder.

Wiki Article about John McAfee,

On May 2, 2012, John McAfee's property in Orange Walk Town, Belize was raided by the Gang Suppression Unit. A GSU press release stated that he was arrested for unlicensed drug manufacturing and possession of an unlicensed weapon. McAfee was allegedly in the presence of his 17-year-old Belizean girlfriend. All charges were dropped and McAfee is suing the Belizean government for false arrest.[9][10][11][12][5]

On November 12, 2012, Belize police started a search for McAfee in connection to the murder of American expatriate Gregory Viant Faull, who was gunned down on November 10, 2012, at his home on the island of Ambergris Caye.[13] [14] Faull was a neighbor of McAfee.[15] No one has been charged, but one suspect is already in custody.[14] In an interview with Wired, McAfee maintains his innocence. He also says that he is afraid the police will kill him. [15]

To quote some lines from Simon and Garfunkel:

I been Phil Spectored, resurrected. / I been Lou Adlered, Barry Sadlered.

Well, I paid all the dues I want to pay. / And I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce,

And all my wealth won't buy me health, / So I smoke a pint of tea a day.

This story has more crooks and twists than a chiropractor's patient list. Fodder for a movie script. Dibs!

Only if he is guilty...

Wow, this does sound really bizarre. Don't know who to believe... Possibly corrupt officials trying to frame a wealthy man for some money, or a possibly crazy wealthy man that thinks he can get away with homicide... Wish the sources could be more reliable.
