John McAfee Rushed to Hospital After Apparent Heart Attack in Prison

Just hours after Guatemala's government denied John McAfee asylum, the rogue anti-virus pioneer was sent to a hospital there Thursday afternoon for a possible heart attack, reports ABC News's Matt Guttman, who also took that photo of him in the ambulance. Earlier in the day McAfee had complained of chest pains. Later, guards found him "prostrate on the floor of his cell and unresponsive." Leading up to his arrest Wednesday night, McAfee has been leading a particularly stressful couple of weeks, what with him fleeing the police, hiding, and escaping to another country — all on the lam (with and without Vice magazine reporters) after he was questioned for murdering a neighbor in Belize. We imagine getting the unfortunate news Thursday morning that Guatemalan officials would have to deport him back to Belize didn't help the situation. (Also, let's not forget McAfee has not treated his body so well in his 67 years —there was a bath-salts phase.) It's difficult, however, to overlook this illuminating bit of information, via Guttman's Twitter feed:

McAfee appeared unresponsive, but when nurses undressed him, he said quite clearly, "please not in front of the press" twitter.com/mattgutmanABC/…

1. and I suppose he will "die" as conveniently as ken lay, and be "cremated" within minutes?

2. My guess is that they lack evidence to convict him

and that he will be deported. No country will want him so he'll end up in Miami where there is great availability of bath salts, and other items that might perk his interest.
