McAfee Antivirus Founder John McAfee Found Dead In Spanish Prison Only Hours After He’s Approved For Extradition To US

John McAfee was found dead in his prison cell in Barcelona only hours after the court approved his extradition to the U.S., according to Fox Business.

McAfee was being held on tax evasion charges.

“In a democracy, power is given not taken,” McAfee said in his last tweet ever.

“But it is still power. Love, compassion, caring have no use for it.”

“But it is fuel for greed, hostility, jealousy… All power corrupts.”

“Take care which powers you allow a democracy to wield.”

From Fox Business:

The news of McAfee’s death was first reported by Spanish newspaper El Mundo. The U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment and referred FOX Business to Spanish authorities.

McAfee, 75, said at an extradition hearing earlier this month that the charges against him were politically motivated. He ran for U.S. president as a Libertarian candidate in 2016, coming in third in the party’s primary.

McAfee was arrested at Barcelona’s airport on Oct. 7, two days after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission charged him with evading taxes and failing to file tax returns.

The Department of Justice alleged McAfee made over $23 million due to materially false and misleading statements about cryptocurrencies.
