The founder of the anti-virus software company McAfee, John McAfee, who was found dead in a Spanish prison, left a message on Twitter in case of his death.
On Wednesday, the Spanish newspaper País, citing police sources, reported that McAfee committed suicide in the prison of the municipality of Sant Esteve Cesrovires in Catalonia.
In a message published on October 15, 2020, McAfee noted that he was not going to commit suicide. He said that he was happy with everything and had friends.
He noted that if the fate of the American financier Jeffrey Epstein, who died in an American prison, befalls him, it will be “not his fault”.
McAfee was detained in Spain at the request of the United States last year, after which the court approved his extradition. According to the US authorities, the businessman evaded paying taxes because he directed his income to the accounts of front persons. He was held in the San Esteve-Cesrovires prison in Barcelona.
In mid-June, McAfee testified in the Spanish National Court. He denied all the charges brought against him in the United States, stating their “political nature.”
