John McAfee's Belize Home Burns To Ground 131

Velcroman1 writes "The former island home of anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee burned down Thursday afternoon under circumstance he told were 'suspicious.' It's an odd choice of words from a man whom the Belize police found suspicious, following the November 2012 murder of American expatriate Gregory Faull, a well-liked builder from Florida who was shot at his home in San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye. 'I believe that there are a select few with great power in Belize that will go to great lengths to harm me,' McAfee said. 'This fire was not just a strange coincidence.'" Watch for more from McAfee soon.

    Come on! I'm making popcorn.

  • Watch me get hate for even saying it but I'm tired of so many making him out to be a hero when all he is is a junkie that skipped out on a murder charge.

    I mean lets just look at what we know to be facts, FACT 1- he bragged about doing a highly dangerous drug in large quantities (bath salts) that is known to cause paranoia, violence, and feelings of persecution. FACT 2- He also bragged about his rather large gun collection and was known to often carry guns on his person, FACT 3- The ONLY person that they reported having any beef with the deceased was McAfee, with them getting into several heated arguments about all the shit going on at his if YOU were running the police, who would be YOUR prime suspect in this case?

    We are talking about a guy that is a proven and known liar, who in his Q&A with Slashdot talked about how he had been "clean and sober for 15 years" when his own blogs from 6 months before the incident were filled with his rantings about how bath salts gave him massive boners that allowed him to keep up with the 16 year olds he was banging at the compound. We are also talking about a guy that paid others to dress and act like him when the cops were looking for a suspect in a murder case that was known to have firearms and thus could have easily gotten one of them killed...this is NOT a nice guy folks, its really not.

    People seem to forget there is a family that now mourns and the only real suspect the police had obstructed an investigation and skipped town. Would anybody be cheering this guy if the man he was accused of killing was on US soil at the time? would anybody be cheering if it was the opposite and a man in the USA had been murdered and he skipped to Belize?

    When you break it down the sad and ugly truth is a lot of the arguments for this guy end up coming down to racism and nationalism, like any crime that happens in South America "doesn't count" because they can't be trusted to run even a single murder investigation and they MUST be corrupt, which if that were true being rich would have given him MORE of an advantage as he could have just bought them off. The whole thing just stinks and with pricks like this running around and people cheering this sociopath you can see where the phrase "Ugly American" comes from, I just wish more people had as much feeling for the dead guy as they show for this douchebag.

APL hackers do it in the quad.
