The man is nothing if not mercurial.
John McAfee, the American tech mogul fighting deportation to Belize, where authorities want to question him about the killing of a neighbor, said late Sunday that he wants to return to the United States.
He spoke to reporters via a video stream from an immigration detention center in Guatemala City. McAfee emerged in that capital to ask for asylum last week, after weeks of living in hiding. His bid was rejected, but a Guatemalan judge granted a stay of deportation.
"Our intent is to return to America, if at all possible, and settle down to whatever normal life we can settle down to under the circumstances," said McAfee. "There is no hope for my life if I am ever returned to Belize."
Authorities in Belize want to talk to the 67-year-old Internet security founder about the November 11 killing of his neighbor, American businessman Gregory Faull.
McAfee said he had nothing to do with the death and insists he left Belize to escape police persecution. He was taken into custody in Guatemala on accusations of entering the country illegally.
Those 2 emails aren't in my box. Perhaps you sent them to someone else by mistake?
Good morning phillipy...and where is ur side kick hctib mary ? Well anyways nice to see u back u took a pretty long brake hope to battle u soon good day dude... this is the real one
You 2 take your love affair elsewhere.... this is serious business here..
@Alicia: U tell em lol.
Running like a guilty man....
@ natas, I ask you kindly to leave me out of your games.
Sure, he can come back, just as soon as he clears up a few legal problems.
Dude is nuts...must have had a hand in his neighbor's death.
Now he wants to come back to the US, after declining two weeks ago. Too late and too bad McAfee
Drama queen. If he is an American citizen then he should be allowed return to the US. That does not mean the US cannot cooperate with Belize or any other country asking for extradition to face charges. A bit of added complexity.
They can only extradite if he is charged, not if he is wanted in questioning.
You can't come home. You committed a murder in a foreign country. John, what's wrong with your thinking John?..you can't be tried here for a murder elsewhere, john.
John, I want a refund on your antivirus. It doesn't work.
typical Amaericn. Cause problems in some other country .Then whats to go back to America to hide.
Americans are a bunch of cowerds. WE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM -THEN GO TO ANOUTHER COUNTRY AND KILL THEM.
Here comes the cliff. hope you can jump.
john why are you worried?? you have the money for lawyers to fight this!! go back there and show them your not guilty.if you did nothing wrong then why run!! UNLESS???:(:(:(
If he can get pass the Norton Firewall, Im sure the U.S. will take him back.
If the bullet retrieved from complaining neighbor came from a McAfee firearm, we'll tell you how it got there without the owner's knowledge.
Yes, Philip, functional children do, sometimes,
run away from framing, used, abusive homes when they can see a way to do so without getting into a worse situation.
I find it ironic that he left the U.S. to avoid taxes, and now that he's in trouble he's desperate to get back. We should charge him re-admittance fees.
and then send him to Belize to answer a question or two....
