John McAfee was discovered dead in a jail cell in Barcelona, hours after a Spanish court decided to extradite him into the U.S. to face accusations of tax evasion. Prison physicians tried to revive him but were not successful in the Department of Justice in Catalonia. In a statement, Mr McAfee took his own life “everything suggests.”
The quirky cryptocurrency advocate and tax opponent was discovered at the Brians 2 penitentiary in northeastern Spain, with a history of legal difficulties spanning from Tennessee to Central America to the Caribbean. Security personnel attempted to resuscitate him, but the jail’s medical team eventually declared his death, according to a statement from the regional Catalan government.
“A judicial delegation has arrived to investigate the causes of death,” according to the statement, adding that “everything leads to suicide.”
The statement did not name McAfee, but stated that the deceased was a 75-year-old U.S. citizen awaiting extradition to his home country. A Catalan government official familiar with the issue who was not authorized to be named in media reports verified McAfee’s identity to The Associated Press.
On Monday, Spain’s National Court ruled in favor of extraditing McAfee, 75, who contended in a hearing earlier this month that the charges leveled against him by prosecutors in Tennessee were politically motivated and that he would spend the rest of his life in prison if sent to the United States.
