Investigators in Belize want to question famous computer entrepreneur John McAfee about a man’s death.
McAfee is famous for the Internet security company that he left in 1994, but that still carries his name.
Gregory Faull, a U.S. citizen and McAfee’s neighbor in Belize, was found dead Sunday morning with a gunshot in the back of his head.
McAfee has been in contact with Wired magazine and told them he did not kill Faull, but is hiding from police because he is afraid they will kill him. He says he is also concerned that whoever killed Faull actually meant to kill him.
“I thought maybe they were coming for me. They mistook him for me. They got the wrong house,” McAfee told Wired.
Police say they do not know a motive for the shooting, but are following several leads.
