Did Mcaffee do it

maybe it was too much bath salts in his rectum that made him act all crazy but it really looks to me like he did it. Barring what they find out about his neighbor that is. I have nothing new to ad other than whats been published however

Why is this in politics? Did McAfee have political ties I'm not aware of?

We should get answers quite quickly as I understand the trial will only last for 30 days.

McAfee Wants to Return to U.S., ‘Normal Life’
Quote:
The creator of the McAfee antivirus program again denied involvement in the killing... claims he is being persecuted by corrupt politicians.
I could believe that. Belize is a very corrupt country. It ranked an abysmal 109th on the 2008 Corruption Perceptions Index. It may be even more corrupt now, but we simply don't know because it is not disclosing the necessary information to be ranked.

Quote:
McAfee has led an eccentric life since he sold his stake in the anti-virus software company named after him in the early 1990s and moved to Belize about three years ago to lower his taxes.
How's that working out for you, John?

This might be harder to believe than one of McAfee adventures, but back in the day (1997) updates for the antivirus definitions came out quarterly, on CD.

I don't think even McAfee knows at the moment. He seems to be seriously deranged.

I came across a new tidbit.

Quote:
Neighbors say Faull made no secret of his dislike of those dogs and had often threatened to poison them if nothing were done to bring them under control. At dinner that night, McCann says Faull seemed to claim responsibility for poisoning the dogs

“He told me right there on the beach,” says McCann, “‘Did you hear? The dogs were poisoned.’ And he gave me a little wink.”

http://insidedateline.nbcnews.com/_n...eline-nbc?lite
Says his friend and the last person to see him alive.

So the day after he kills the dogs with poison (McAfee shot some of them that hadn't died yet to put them out of their misery) he ends up dead. And he'd been threatening to poison them, making no secret of it. I don't think there is any question, McAfee was involved, or did it himself. McAfee would have known who it was or been tipped off with the way this guy was going around threatening and then bragging. I heard him say in an interview that everyone, even himself, had a problem with his dogs and he barely knew the guy. Well not everyone was publicly threatening to poison them "often". So that's what he has to answer to.

Faull would have spent long time in jail for doing that in most modern nations. John not being to popular with the local law enforcement, he surely thought his only chance at justice was murder. It's hard to feel sorry for Faull when he put those dogs though such agony but McAfee is clearly half-insane and shouldn't get away with it.

Maybe not evidence enough to convict but I just can't imagine that's it's some giant coincidence that he was shot by someone else on the exact day McAfee had an incredibly powerful reason to kill him.

His alibi girl says she wasn't with him all night as he claimed.

There is clearly motive and apparently opportunity, but I do not know of any direct evidence. He should at least be convicted of being a cocky a**hole though.
