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.
Jeff Wise posted to his blog that John McAfee had revealed his whereabouts … and that just happens to be his beachfront home on Ambergris Caye. Jeff decided to check with the police himself, so he called them …
UPDATE 10.12am Saturday 11/17/12: I called Belize police spokesman Raphael Martinez this morning, and he said that he would check with the San Pedro police.
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.
These people have not been charged with the murder of Gregory Faull, however the Belize police detained 29 year-old bodyguard William Mulligan and 22 year-old Stefanie Mulligan, they were arrested and charged for kept firearm and ammunition without a gun license. They were living at John McAfee’s estate.
Sun Nov. 18, 2012 – The full list of John McAfee’s friends and staff who have been arrested is posted on John’s official blog.
Three of John’s friends are still being held in prison on trumped up charges.
They were charged and have been imprisoned because three legally licensed firearms were found in the incorrect rooms on his property (stretching the law to the extreme). John would like you to please email and demand their release:
I am going to create a separate post as this is just too unreal with Joshua Davis being in contact with John McAfee while he is on the run.
Nov. 22, 2012 – Well the tables have turned … Joshua Davis seems to have fallen out of John McAfee’s good books. According to John’s Blog … I am not sure what to think, best to read it yourself.
Nov. 29, 2012 – Joshua Davis is now talking about this story on Reddit.
Joshua Davis has more to add from Wired.com where John McAfee seems to hint at a government frame up for the murder.
Another report from Joshua Davis where John McAfee claims to have dyed his hair, eyebrows, beard, and mustache jet black. “I have modified my appearance in a radical fashion,” McAfee said, “I’ll probably look like a murderer, unfortunately.”
This post by Joel Johnson on Gizmodo.com is worth breaking out the popcorn for.
Back on Thursday June 21, 2012 The Belize Times ran this article HERE where John McAfee calls Prime Minister Dean Barrow a liar.
