We are not sure what is going on yet, The Daily Mail is reporting that John has been transferred to a prison hospital with heart attack symptoms, it has also been posted on John’s blog … we are hoping this is not too serious, and maybe just exhaustion.
Update – The Daily Mail is now reporting that John McAfee has not suffered a heart attack and he has been returned to detention awaiting his pending deportation.
After hearing the devastating news that his bid for political asylum had been rejected, John McAfee told The Associated Press that he had suffered chest pains overnight but didn’t believe he had suffered a heart attack. A government doctor who examined him agreed, saying McAfee’s heart rhythm and blood pressure were normal, and that he appeared to be suffering from high stress.
Well, it looks like VICE Magazine got the Big Story after all …
Two days ago I posted the question did VICE.com setup John McAfee to be caught? The reason I have this thinking is, both CNN and VICE are not chasing the story of corruption in Belize, they are gunning for the Big Story of John’s capture on film. The Belize corruption story is a long drawn out procedure that has no interest to their target audience. Short, big breaking stories like John McAfee or stints in Syria are the blockbuster stuff main stream media likes to report on. John McAfee secretly making it into Guatemala safely, applying for asylum, and going on with his life is no story.
Leaking the EXIF data by a firm like VICE Magazine just does not make sense to me. Robert King is a world class journalist that has earned my respect, however to let that data be uploaded online looks very suspect as it would not just lead to the big story, but it leads to the only story worth going to Guatemala for … the arrest live on film.
I have also noticed the pissy attitude Martin Savidge of CNN seems to be taking about John’s story now. He is chirping about his lost iPhone and laptop, when in reality, he was probably trying to do the same thing as VICE did and use the lost iPhone as the excuse for leaking John’s location. I bet his crew was also prepared to film an arrest.
The story for MSM is not Mr. Faull’s death or about the corruption in Belize … the corruption story has been going on for many years and nobody is touching it.
I haven’t posted much of Vice’s stuff yet because I am waiting to see how they will write the story. However, here is the VICE footage of John McAfee being arrested (probably not as dramatic as they had hoped for) … later I might follow up with a post about VICE Magazine and maybe my opinion will change, however … my guess is they have already said That’s a Wrap and moved on.
And from John’s blog, as strange as it sounds … John McAfee is Blogging from Jail.
UPDATE – Chad just posted this to John’s blog … Urgent from John.
I am not sure why Jeff Wise has been hell bent on destroying John McAfee … today on his blog the heading reads John McAfee, Captured, Faces Life in Belize Prison.
and Wired.com is running their latest story with the heading … How Trusting in Vice Led to John McAfee’s Downfall.
Update Dec. 4, 2012 – This post we wrote about with links to John’s blog is still here, however everything has been removed from his blog and now the links are leading to page cannot be found. They deleted three complete posts and all the comments?
We are pretty sure this was a premeditated ploy on John’s part … if it was, it sure worked like a charm. There was an unconfirmed report from whoismcafee called Breaking – John Captured that he had been captured near the Mexican/Belize border. When in fact it was merely a double who was nabbed, allowing John and Sam to slip out of the country undetected.
My hunch told me John was making a move to somewhere safe … and this is just fantastic news to hear they are not in Belize anymore.
Sat. Dec. 1, 2012 – latest news … John McAfee has NOT been captured.
Sun. Dec. 2, 2012 – Chad just posted on his Twitter account that an article appearing today in The New York Times has crashed John’s blog. Gotta love New York 🙂
Mon. Dec. 3, 2012 – Brian Fitzgerald posts this Message to the Media.
During my research I quickly noticed that one of the World’s Most Dangerous Gangs … The Los Zetas are running drugs right past both of John McAfee’s two Estates, the oceanfront home on Ambergris Caye and his 20 acre compound in Orange Walk. The Zetas drug route is shown by The Washington Post … and here is another source reporting The Los Zetas smuggling routes through Belize.
Nov. 30, 2012 – John McAfee kindly acknowledges this blog on whoismcafee.com. When I had posted a comment on John’s blog, I was quite suprised that he replied.
He then posted this very nice note on the first page of his Thank you post …
I have to admit, this story is mind boggling and getting bigger by the day … John McAfee has posted the below letter on his blog. When I first read the letter, I immediately wondered who Swon was and who the murdered Espat kids were. The two murdered Espat kids mentioned in the letter are cousins Charlie Espat and Eduardo Daniel Alamilla. The author of the letter seems to refer to either Eric Swan (a local gangster) who was once shot by the Belize Police, or his close criminal cousin James ‘Raindrops’ Swan who was killed in a targeted hit just this past August.
It is too bad John McAfee did not reveal this information when it was actually happening and arranged to leave Belize for his own safety. It was the logical time to unearth the corruption and get the hell out of there. Unfortunately, Gregory Faull has now been murdered … and confirming that the letter was written before his murder is not going to be easy. Even though John says he hired an investigator to determine the author … the letter was purposely written to disguise the actual author’s handwriting … certain individual letters are purposely written to look different.
The last entry I posted was about John McAfee’s new blog where he has mounted a campaign to tell his side of the story. In this post you will hear the actual phone calls John McAfee made to Joshua Davis at 3am.
Quoted from the article …
“Chris Allnatt woke up to watch a soccer match and was astounded to find McAfee on his balcony. He opened the glass door and noticed that McAfee was lying in a pool of his own urine. His clothes were soaked. “What the fuck are you doing here, John?”
“Allnatt returned to clean the urine off his balcony and discovered a small plastic bag of a gray powder hidden behind a pot near where McAfee was lying.”
Update from John’s blog … similar to the explanation on his stuffmonger postings, he said it was some big elaborate hoax. Listening for yourself is sure to bring skepticism. As far as I am concerned, they both seem incredibly real and are worthy of an Oscar if they are fabricated. Either of these events do not implicate John McAfee for the murder of Gregory Faull … however it does make perfect sense that he would want to minimize these incidents, because as things stand … both seem very real.
I know everyone wants to read John McAfee’s side of the story written in his own words … well, he just started an official blog for that exact purpose today. You can listen to John McAfee declare his innocence in his own words.
I could not believe it when I came across John’s blog whoismcafee … as many already know I am writing this story not just because of how big it is … I also believe John McAfee is innocent and has not killed anyone … stay tuned for updates.
Tues. Nov. 20, 2012 … looks like John’s blog has picked up a fair amount of exposure. The story is now being reported by some major news sources such as CNN, the story is also run by Fox News, not to mention TIME, and across the pond at the BBC.
Fri. Nov. 30, 2012 – Wired writes an article about animation artist Chad Essley and his upcoming novel The HINTERLAND.
Here we go again with another blockbuster story unfolding … this one is about internet multi-millionaire John McAfee, the man who founded the world famous anti-virus software that bears his name. When I first heard about this murder case I didn’t think much about it … rich internet guy murders his neighbour over an argument. However after looking into this more, I noticed a much bigger story that is quite interesting and thought I would write the story as it plays out.
As I write this story John McAfee is on the run and in hiding after being accused of executing his neighbour with a bullet to the back of the head.
In a nutshell John McAfee had 100 million dollars … he then built a 280 acre Colorado estate filled with Mayan Treasures at the cost of 25 million dollars, he built a multi-million dollar 5,800 square foot oceanfront estate on 5.3 acres of Hawaii’s secluded Molokai Island shown below.The home nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, is guarded by a 20- foot-high Japanese gate house featuring iron gates and Afghan teak wood horses. The perimeter fence includes Molokai rock columns. The wall and gatehouse alone cost $300,000 … it took seven long years to build his Island Paradise and then John McAfee never even moved in.
He also bought a Cessna private jet and built himself a ranch in Rodeo New Mexico on 157 acres which included a private hanger and cost him 11.5 million dollars. Life for John McAfee seemed pretty good you would imagine?
Well, not really … seems that he blazed through 96 million dollars and found himself in financial distress when he woke up one day and realized he was down to his last 4 million. He then decided to start over again in Tropical Belize where the cost of living should easily make his money last forever. He started a lab in the jungle called QuorumEx.com which does something called Quorum Sensing. I am not sure what it is, except that he has said to be looking at developing a female version of Viagra.
Moving to a beachfront estate on Ambergris Caye in Belize has not worked out so great for John McAfee … one of the reasons has to be his extensive use of Bath Salts, including posting pictures of himself making it from his Jungle Laboratory.
I decided to write this blog (similar to how I wrote about Luka Magnotta when he was a fugitive at LukaTrial.com) after I started reading the John McAfee online postings from December 2010 where he was discussing what he was doing with Bath Salts and actually outed himself online while posting pictures from his 20 acre jungle compound in Orange Walk Belize.
Since the murder discovered Sunday morning November 11, 2012 of his neighbour Gregory Faull, John McAfee is in hiding and has declared he did not commit the murder. That is the other reason I am writing this story … after researching more into his Belize lifestyle … I am not yet convinced he killed the guy next door either.
Looks like rich multi-millionaire internet guy moves to Tropical Belize and sets about becoming stuffmonger the Bath Salts King by processing 23 kilos of the stuff and sharing it with a group of people that are connected to Belize Street Gangs.
Add in a botched raid from the police where they confiscated some guns but failed to find the Meth Lab they were looking for. I am hearing that the victim was killed with a Luger … could it be similar to a Luger removed from McAfee’s property back in May?
I found this website AmbergrisCaye.com which has a forum where the local folks were discussing the raid. If you go through it you will see how McAfee had threatened to go public in the USA with his claims of corruption and police brutality. It sure sheds a bit of light on how serious he was involved with threatening the Government. Click the quote below, the bottom of the page contains a 25 min. interview John McAfee gave after the raid. He does have some supporters posting also.
McAfee said that if he does not get an apology by Friday May 11th he will be soliciting the services of a senior lobbyist in Washington DC and get the US State Department to issue a Travel Advisory against Belize.
John McAfee says his troubles first started when he refused to contribute money politically after already donating 2 million dollars to the police which included a million dollar Coast Guard vessel. He also told them he could not help gain the release of Prime Minister Dean Barrow’s son Shyne Barrow who happens to be a multi-millionaire Rapper that served 9 years for his role in a New York City nightclub shooting and was eventually deported back to Belize in October 2009.
This interview given by Prime Minister Dean Barrow on Nov. 14th starts with Barrow stating he has never met McAfee before and that he does not even know what John McAfee looks like … something tells me Dean Barrow is not being truthful.
You can read the local folks of Ambergris Caye discussing this case at a new thread called John McAfee Wanted for Murder started Nov. 12, the day after the murder.
Today Nov. 16, 2012 – John McAfee talks live on CNBC.
A personal note on this … justice for Gregory Faull is paramount, however, only if we can bring the true killer to trial. As far as I am concerned, John McAfee is an innocent man until the truth is revealed about who actually murdered Gregory Faull.
Good Luck John … stay safe.
Thought I should post pics of the beachfront villa John McAfee owns and lived in the night his neighbour Gregory Faull was murdered … it is the blue houses.
Below is the house next door where Gregory Faull was murdered on the upper floor.
I could not believe what I was reading about John McAfee posting on a public forum about making Bath Salts under the user name stuffmonger … he even uploaded these pictures of his jungle lab and further on he outs himself by revealing the name of his website QuoremEx.com … he quickly notices his mistake and denies it is his site.
The forum he was posting on is called BlueLight and there is a thread started after this hit the news called John McAfee aka Stuffmonger wanted for Murder where they are discussing this case. Again this seems like deja vu from when I was writing about Luka Magnotta at LukaTrial.com
Since I discovered John McAfee’s blog where he is telling his side of the story … I want to add this screen shot below, taken from his blog showing his reply that the whole bluelight stuffmonger thing was part of a bet. As for his stating that posting on this drug forum was not real … the only way to furnish an opinion is to read it yourself.
