Spanish autopsy shows John McAfee died of suicide – Silicon Valley

By Inti Landauro and Joan Faus | Associated Press

An official autopsy of the body of Madrid-John McAfee showed that he had committed suicide in a prison cell in Spain awaiting delivery to the United States, the El País newspaper said Monday.

A spokesperson for the Catalan court system responsible for the autopsy had no information about the report.

Prison guards found the body of software mogul McAfee hanging in his cell on Wednesday in a place that looked like suicide, his lawyer Javier Vilalba said last week.

He said on Friday that McAfee’s widow Janice had asked him to request a second independent autopsy once the first results were announced.

Janice McAfee accused US officials of death, saying she didn’t think her husband had committed suicide.

UK-born McAfee, which launched the world’s first commercial antivirus software in 1987, was detained at Barcelona Airport last October. For many years he fled the US authorities and lived on a mega yacht.

He was charged with tax evasion in Tennessee, USA, and was charged with cryptocurrency fraud in New York.
