Wired tells the story of John McAfee, founder of McAfee Associates and developer of the well known anti-virus software, whose recent investigation by Belize officials for murder has been a gripping tail of cat and mouse.. However, McAfee’s story is a bizarre even before the death of his neighbour in Belize, of which the police suspect foul play. The technology magnate had been living a playboy lifestyle on the central American country complete with guns, drugs and a 17 year old girlfriend. After his initial suspicion for murder, McAfee ran, only for his location to be unwittingly revealed by Vice magazine publishing an image including metadata of his location. After this, there had been a long failed attempt at seeking asylum in Guatemala, before finally returning to the United States. Overall, the tale of John McAfee depicts a troubled man who may have overestimated his own genius.
