Police on the Caribbean island of Belize say they want to question the British born creator of antivirus software, John McAfee over the death of his next door neighbour. On Sunday morning Gregory Viant Fuall - who'd retired to the island from Florida - was found by his housekeeper with a gunshot to his head, lying in a pool of blood in his home in the town of San Pedro on Ambergris Cave, a small islands off the coast of Belize. There was no sign of forced entry.
McAfee, who's 67, has always been known as something of an eccentric yoga lover. Now an American citizen, he amassed an estimated $100m fortune selling his stake in the firm back in the 1990s. He told the media that he'd lost $4m of that in the financial crash of 2008, and he promptly moved to Belize, in a bid to pay less tax. McAfee is suing local police for false arrest over being accused of running an illicit drugs factory and have an unlicensed gun. All charges against him were later dropped.
He's now being described as a 'person of interest' for the police, apparently no charges have been laid yet. Raphael Martinez, spokesman for Belize's Ministry of National Security, told the AP news agency that "It's too early in the investigation. To say he is a suspect would be a bold statement." Police officers went to McAfee's home on the island but he wasn't there.
A local real estate agent said she'd heard Faull complain about McAfee's numerous dogs barking outside his property. While residents claimed McAfee seemed standoffish and unfriendly.
