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.” A controversial character, the first commercial anti-virus software was published by Mr McAfee. It contributed in the computer world to the development of a multi-billion dollar business. In October 2020, despite his millions of advisory jobs and speaking engagements,crypto-currencies and selling the rights to his life story he was arrested in Spain and accused of not filing tax returns for four years.
The U.S. Department of Justice said that he avoided the tax responsibility by paying his revenue on bank accounts, and on behalf of the nominees on the cryptocurrency exchange accounts.
He was also accused of hiding goods in the names of other people, including a boat and real properties.
John McAfee found dead; such a sad ending.
