Well John McAfee is dead, shortly after the news broke that he was going to be extradited back to the United States. He was found dead by hanging in his cell. He was accused of evading taxes with massive earnings from crypto currencies.
And he previously said the government was out to get him and that if he turns up having committed suicide, he didn’t.
He said he was getting threats and wanted to make sure people know if anything happens it was done TO him. He even got a TATTOO of it.
Getting subtle messages from U.S. officials saying, in effect: “We’re coming for you McAfee! We’re going to kill yourself”. I got a tattoo today just in case. If I suicide myself, I didn’t. I was whackd. Check my right arm.$WHACKD available only on https://t.co/HdSEYi9krq🙂 pic.twitter.com/rJ0Vi2Hpjj

It really sounds like a suicide, by the way. But you gotta admit that’s pretty weird.
What’s really true though is that in the current American climate, you can’t even talk about something like this without social media companies and tech giants trying to silence and marginalize you. So to my mind, pointing out that he said he didn’t suicide himself is not just fascinating, it’s a rebellion against the oppressors.
