The weeks-long hunt for software pioneer turned fugitive John McAfee ended this week with his arrest in Guatemala.
McAfee, who was sought by police in connection with a shooting in Belize, was arrested by Guatemalan police for allegedly entering the country illegally. The 67-year-old founder of the company that bears his name apparently entered Guatemala to seek asylum from officials in Belize, who have been pursuing him for the past few weeks in connection with the shooting death of his neighbor.
The Guatemalan government denied the asylum request of the tech-entrepreneur-turned-fugitive yesterday, opening the door for the eccentric millionaire's return to Belize. The same day, he was taken to a hospital after complaining of chest pains. After initially stating that McAfee had suffered two mild heart attacks, his lawyer retracted the statement, saying his client was suffering from stress and hypertension.
