Report: Anti-virus software pioneer McAfee captured
By Agence France-Presse
Saturday, December 1, 2012 21:08 EST

Anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee, wanted by authorities in Belize for his neighbor’s murder, has been captured after weeks on the run, his blog said Saturday.

“We have received an unconfirmed report that John McAfee has been captured at the border of Belize and Mexico,” his official blog whoismcafee.com said.

The website, which McAfee launched to counter what he sees as erroneous claims by the media or authorities about him, said it would provide more information as it became available.

Police say they simply want to question the 67-year-old about the murder of fellow American Gregory Faull, a Florida native who was found dead at his home last month in a pool of blood on the Caribbean island of Ambergris Caye.

8. Questioning him will use up

80% of the memories of his captors.
