When McAfee was first imprisoned abroad a year ago, he wrote to his millions of Twitter followers:
There are now concerns surrounding his alleged “suicide” as a result of his cryptic communications, and his lawyer just dropped the biggest bomb of them all…
McAfee, he claims, was not suicidal in the least.
In a final appeal, John McAfee claimed the US government “wants to make an example out of me,” according to the Daily Mail, before he was found hanging in his Spanish jail cell on Wednesday in an apparent suicide, according to his lawyer.
The 75-year-old died just hours after a court ordered his extradition to the United States, where he was wanted for tax evasion and fraud.
Although Spanish authorities claim there was no foul play, McAfee’s past tweets stating that he would never commit suicide “a la Epstein” have fueled conspiracy theories.
‘I’m at ease here.’ I have acquaintances. The meal is delicious. Everything is fine. Know that it will be no fault of mine if I hang myself like Epstein,’ McAfee tweeted on October 15.
On October 3, McAfee was apprehended at Barcelona airport by the US Justice Department as he was ready to take a flight to Istanbul on a British passport.
McAfee stated in court last month that if convicted in America, he would spend the rest of his life in prison. ‘I am hopeful that the Spanish court will recognize the inequity of this,’ he said, adding that the US is trying to use him as an example.
McAfee’s lawyer, Javier Villalba, said his client’s death had come as a shock to his wife and other family members, and that he would investigate the cause of his client’s death.
‘I was in frequent contact with him on the phone,’ Villalba claimed. ‘At no point had he displayed any specific concern or clue that could have led us to believe anything had occurred.’
The lawyer stated, “This has been like pouring cold water on the family and his defense team.” ‘No one saw it coming; he hadn’t even said goodbye.’
The ominous tone of McAfee’s tweets, particularly his fascination with pedophiliac tycoon Jeffrey Epstein, has raised questions about his apparent suicide.
In August 2019, Epstein was found hanging in his Manhattan prison cell, although many suspect he was slain to prevent him from incriminating affluent elites in a child sex trafficking ring.
In 2010, McAfee sold his company for $7.7 billion to Intel.
For years, he had been living in self-imposed exile, sailing across the world on his Caribbean yacht.
In 2012, he was charged with the murder of his neighbor in Belize.
McAfee disputed the murder, but a Florida judge ordered him to pay $25 million in 2015 after finding him ‘liable’ for the death of ex-pat Gregory Viant Faull.
McAfee allegedly earned millions over the last decade but failed to pay his taxes, according to US officials. They also accused him of defrauding his Twitter followers by promoting cryptocurrencies to inflate prices and profit.
McAfee also stated last year that he possessed “knowledge” that might bring the US administration down.
After a Grand Jury indicted him on tax-related allegations, he fled the United States in January 2019.
Conspiracy theories are flying thick and fast in the wake of his death, and what his lawyer just said just adds to the mystery.
