John McAfee reported dead from Spanish prison

John McAfee, the creator of McAfee antivirus software and a pioneer crypto enthusiast, was found dead in his jail cell in Spain. McAfee found in an apparent suicide, hours after a Spanish court approved his extradition to the United States to face tax charges punishable by 20-30 years in prison, authorities said.

The Catalan Justice Department reported that the prison medics tried to resuscitate him, but were not successful.

Officially their statement says that “everything indicates”  that Mr McAfee took his own life, and according to this information they will treat as a suicide no criminal charges were made.

He already predicted his death?

The crypto pioneer sent a cryptic tweet last year that if he was found hanged behind bars like Jeffrey Epstein,

“it would be no fault of mine.”


According to this tweet there are a bunch of questions left – was that an other Epstein style shady “accident”? We can agree on that it seems a little odd for a coincidence these times. Tell us what you think in the comments!
