Founder of McAfee Antivirus wanted in Belize for murder

By Kevin Fitzgerald     Nov 12, 2012 in World
San Pedro - John McAfee, the founder of McAfee Antivirus, is a suspect in the murder of an American expatriate in Belize. The man who was murdered was a neighbor of McAfee's. The two men had reportedly been involved in recent disputes with one another.
USA Today reports that the victim, Gregory Haull, was shot inside his home Saturday night. Haull suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the head and was found in a pool of his own blood by a housekeeper early Sunday morning. Authorities discovered that his computer and phone were missing, but there were no signs of forced entry into his home.
According to Mashable, Faull had recently made a formal complaint to the mayor's office stating that McAfee was firing guns from his home and was also exhibiting "roguish behavior." The two men additionally were at odds over dogs.
Vienne Robinson, assistant superintendent of the San Pedro police department, told Fox News that authorities are looking for McAfee, who has not been seen in his home since the incident. She also stated that no one has been charged with murder yet and that one suspect is already in custody.
McAfee, who sold his antivirus company to Intel for $7.7 billion in 2010, has been living in Belize the past few years and is also known for his eccentric behavior. It is alleged that McAfee frequently uses hallucinogenic drugs and has been boasting about his drug use through online chat rooms. McAfee was also arrested earlier this year for possessing illegal firearms.
