CNBC Talks with McAfee Founder, Wanted for Questioning in Belize Murder

The cable news networks have been following the sordid story of John McAfee, the creator of McAfee anti-virus software, now owned by Intel.

McAfee is wanted for questioning in the a murder of American Gregory Viant Faull, who was gunned down at his home Saturday. Faull and McAfee were neighbors on Ambergris Caye in Belize. McAfee has been on the run since Monday. In an interview with CNBC Investigations producer Jeff Pohlman, McAfee says he’s moving every four hours because he is fearful for his safety. He says he’s been “accused of something I didn’t do.” He says Belize police are trying to shake him down and extort money from him.

In 2009, McAfee’s fortune was reported to have declined to $4 million from a peak of $100 million.

Wired reporter Joshua Davis has also been speaking with McAfee and he’s been posting fascinating updates on his Twitter account.
