McAfee, Person of Interest; not Murder Suspect

John McAfee

A post mortem examination on the body of Gregory Faull was conducted today at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. The results have not been released, but three persons have been detained and the search continues for John McAfee. McAfee is wanted for questioning about the murder of his neighbor, Gregory Faull, who was shot once to the back of his head inside his home in the Mata Grande area on the north end of Ambergris Caye. Prior to his death, Faull had reported to the San Pedro Town Mayor about McAfee’s dogs and armed security personnel who frequented the area. McAfee’s dogs were found dead and Faull was killed. When the police came to search his residence, he was afraid and buried himself in the sand and covered himself with a cardboard box, because he thought he would be next. International reports have claimed that McAfee had personally tested MDPV, the drug referred to as bath salts which was used by a Florida man that ate a homeless man’s face in May. McAfee has offered various statements via Joshua Davis’ Twitter account, the most recent being that he has radically altered his appearance to avoid capture. His story has been captured by international media and contrary to reports that McAfee is a murder suspect; the Police Press Officer told News Five that he is simply wanted for questioning.

 

Raphael Martinez, Police Press Officer

Raphael Martinez

“The situation has not changed since Monday, but what I can tell you is that we have at least three persons in detention in San Pedro and McAfee is still at large. We would like to appeal to the Belizean public, if you see something; you know anything; you know his whereabouts, kindly inform the nearest police station. You can call crime stoppers; 0-800-922 TIPS. We need to bring this to a closure. I’m hoping that if he is in the country as we think he is and if he is with friends or somebody who is there thinking that they are helping him; please encourage him to come to the police station so that we can get to the bottom of it; answer his questions and let’s move on with our lives.”

 

Jose Sanchez

“Can you confirm whether or not those three persons are associates or employees of Mister McAfee?”

 

Raphael Martinez

“Well normally police when it comes to a case like this, you would find that the police would pick up anybody who is in the immediate vicinity; people who are associated with him; people who perhaps were seen with him in the last twenty-four hours or so. So it would not be unusual for these persons to be picked up and questioned. But that is far as I can tell you at this point.”

 

Jose Sanchez

“So you can’t confirm whether or not a boy he gave a scholarship to was questioned; or the taxi man; or his security guard, Mr. Mulligan? You can’t confirm if any associate at this point has been detained for guns and ammunition or anything else for that matter?”

 

Raphael Martinez

“Well I can tell you that the persons who worked with him were actually questioned. But whether or not; the specifics of it is still a matter of police investigation.”

 

Jose Sanchez

“Is he a primary person of interest in the murder investigation or is he a murder suspect as Mr. Marco Vidal, GSU commander, has been quoted on the internet as saying?”

 

Raphael Martinez

“As far as I am concerned, the official version is that he is a person of interest and we are seeking him for questioning.”

 

Jose Sanchez

“But not necessarily murder suspect? Very clear.”

 

Raphael Martinez

“Not murder suspect.”

    Quite a soap opera / murder drama for the Jewel, just in time for the Christmas tourist season!

    I hope he is found and the case resolved soon.

  2. Rod says:

    Now the mearda has hit the fan now the pm of this country is being implicated in this murder mcafee is claiming that barrow sent his paid gang members to kill him how embarrassing for our poor Belize and San Pedro no one will want to visit his island nothing but drugs thugs rapist murder and debachury on this island our country has come to this situation because of a totally useless and incompetent pm and gov . And who can tell if this pm doesn’t still have his own private army on his payroll but now the world is watching so we will find out. At lease this has made Raphael Martinez put on a tie to make himself look a little better.

    So terrible sad that this man who had so much to offer this country allowed himself to be caught up in this drug craze, and life style that is ruining our country. McAfee, could have used his money and time to help modernize the schools, teach children how to become entrepreneurs. The uglyness that has geset this country is so sad, it sucks in so many.
    Now the country has truly made the big times, there goes the economy, kiss tourists goodbye. I hopw this will shame Barrow into not running for another term in office.

  4. Belizean says:

    Rod do you really believe stories that are blown out of proportion?

  5. Bmp man says:

    Why are we listening to McAfee.

    We dont need his money –

    this is like a molester giving a child $100 but intends to do horrible things to him/ her.

    Find him send him to jail then deport him – we dont need this white trash here

  6. Uncle Benji says:

    Yes, McAfee had more money than most Belizeans, but interms of millionaire, the man was more of a pauper.

    McAfee was forced out of the company he founded in 1992, after it had gone public, and walked away with a fortune in stock. He lost money in the 2008 stock market and real estate crashes, sold all his property in the United States and moved to Belize.Over the years in Belize, his fortune had dwindled. It was more reputation than money.

    McAfee Belizean drug stories are true. The man was a drug junkie before hitting the big times. So going back to his old ways was a cinch in Belize.

    We Belizeans make too much out of this McAfee deal. The man is simply a white, paranoid, drug junkie who now, may be a murderer. Watch him turn up in Mexico begging asylum, then back to his drug junkie ways.

  7. Belizean says:

    Agree with Uncle Benji all the way

  8. In the present, looking to the future says:

    Agree, again, Uncle Benji.
    There is the national anthem of San Pedro – “just another gringo in Belize” (google for the lyrics!) – sums up eloquently this sad episode.

    Turn yourself in John….seek medical attention with plenty of helpers as witnesses (just in case).
