McAfee founder found dead by suicide in Spanish jail: prison official

John McAfee, the founder of the famous antivirus software McAfee and the extravagant tech mogul, has been found dead on his cell in Barcelona, Spain, according to sources quoted by El País.

The post, which depicts a black, capital-letter "Q" on a white background, went up less than a half hour after English-language news services began reporting Mr McAfee's death.

Earlier, the Spanish National Court ruled in favor of extraditing John McAfee, the founder of the McAfee antivirus software, to the United States over tax-related criminal charges that were filed by prosecutors in Tennessee.

USA federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment in October against McAfee over charges that he evaded taxes and willfully failed to file returns.

The QAnon conspiracy theory, which emerged under former President Trump's term in the White House, speculated that the former president was waging a secret war against a global cabal of cannibalistic, Satan-worshipping pedophiles.

The entrepreneur was arrested last October at Barcelona's worldwide airport.

Earlier today, a Spanish court ruled McAfee could have been extradited to the United States following approval from the country's Council of Ministers and the opportunity for his legal team to appeal the decision.

McAfee linked the charges filed by the Internal Revenue Service to his failed bid to run as a Libertarian Party candidate in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. "I am hoping that the Spanish court will see the injustice of this", he said, adding "the United States wants to use me as an example". When the price of the crypto asset looked even more bullish in November that year, McAfee doubled down, claiming BTC would reach $1 million before 2021. She said the cause of death is under investigation.

The US Justice Department alleged that Mr McAfee evaded tax liability by having his income paid into bank accounts and cryptocurrency exchange accounts in the names of nominees.

Lawyers for McAfee could not immediately be identified.

The entrepreneur was arrested last October at Barcelona's worldwide airport. He fought for other people's rights and liberties, and he is entitled to and looks forward to his day in court to exercise some of those very rights'.
