Default John McAfee found dead in prison after court approves extradtion to the US

John McAfee dead: Antivirus tycoon found lifeless in prison after court OKs extradition

John McAfee was found dead in his cell in a Barcelona prison on Wednesday, according to the Catalan justice department.

Spain’s high court – the Audiencia Nacional – had just hours earlier agreed to his extradition to America to stand trial for alleged tax evasion.

The 75-year-old, British-born former antivirus baron, who founded McAfee Associates in the late 1980s and made his millions before more or less retiring in the mid-1990s, was being held at a prison in Sant Esteve Sesrovires following his arrest at Barcelona airport in October 2020.

Or so her story goes.
