Going Viral: McAfee Founder Wanted on Murder Charges

12 Nov

Well here’s something you don’t hear everyday in the technology community.

“Antivirus pioneer John McAfee is on the run from murder charges, Belize police say. According to Marco Vidal, head of the national police force’s Gang Suppression Unit, McAfee is a prime suspect in the murder of American expatriate Gregory Faull, who was gunned down Saturday night at his home in San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye.”

I’m not the biggest McAfee software fan but I would have never guessed this in a million years. According to the article on Gizmodo, he has become very involved with drug use in Belize, specifically with a drug known as MDPV.

From article, Paul Early, an addiction specialist, notes the following about MDPV:

“Our experience clearly warns of the psychiatric and medical dangers of this drug. We have cared for multiple patients who have abused MDPV; they report intense and unpleasant visual hallucinations after a short binge. The drug feels non-toxic with its first use, but following a moderate binge users suffer mild to moderate paranoia… in about 10% of individuals who use higher doses, we have observed a sustained psychotic state with intense anxiety lasting 3 to 7 days.”

Well there’s some encouraging news.
