Inspector Knacker of the Belize yard is hunting antivirus pioneer John McAfee after an American, Gregory Faull, was found murdered.
Marco Vidal, head of the national police force’s Gang Suppression Unit, said that McAfee is a prime suspect in the murder of Faull.
Faull was a well-liked builder who had allegedly fallen out with McAfee.
Recently he had filed a formal complaint against McAfee with the mayor’s office, claiming that McAfee had fired off guns and exhibited “roguish behaviour”.
After a row involving dogs, Faull was found by his cleaner lying face up in a pool of blood with an apparent gunshot wound on the upper rear part of his head. A single luger brand 9mm expended shell was found at the first stairs leading up to the upper flat of the building.
Missing from the house was a laptop and an iPhone. McAfee was not around to answer any questions and is believed to have hoofed it.
According to Gizmodo, McAfee has become increasingly erratic, and allegedly began associating with Belize gangsters in an effort to get his paws on some hardcore drugs.
It’s said that McAfee has been posting on a drug-focused message board called Bluelight about his attempts to purify the psychoactive compounds known as “bath salts”. Although the United Kingdom had a surge in the use of mephedrone – a cathinone-based drug that was briefly legal – it has not had the same blanket scare media coverage as ‘bath salts’ in the US, which are usually a similar derivative.
He allegedly wrote that it was the finest drug ever conceived, not just for the indescribable hypersexuality, but also for the smooth euphoria and mild comedown. US tabloids so far have equated ‘bath salts’ with incidents like road-side cannibals, however, after the scare this was later disproved.
McAfee said he was trying to find the holy grail of the perfect “super perv powder” and warned about the dangers of handling the freebase version of the drug. He said that version of the drug gave him the worst paranoia in his life.
Earlier this year, McAfee claimed he became the victim of the Gang Supression Unit after he failed to bribe a local politician. At the time, he said the GSU took a sledgehammer to unlocked doors on his property, confiscated his passport, and seized all the weapons on his compound.
