McAfee’s Flavor of Love, lifestyle taken to Guatemala

The strange and interesting life of John McAfee on the run continues to make international headlines. McAfee is a person of interest that police want to question about the murder of his neighbor Gregory Faull. McAfee went into hiding before officers could question him, his compound in the Mata Grande area of north Ambergris Caye was raided several times by police and several of his business associates were arrested on gun possession charges. Although the founder of the antivirus company that bears his name has U.S. citizenship and can return at anytime, he snuck across the border to Guatemala where he is seeking political asylum. McAfee has hired Telésforo Guerra, former Attorney General of Guatemala, who was born in Benque Viejo, Belize. Guerra’s clients include former Guatemalan President, Alfonso Portillo, who fled that country after charges that he embezzled millions of dollars surfaced in 2010. But in addition to representing the president who tried to flee to Belize and the antivirus founder who fled to Guatemala, Guerra is also well known in the country as the lawyer who helped four Belize Defense Force soldiers to be released in 2000 after they were detained by Guatemalan soldiers during a routine patrol. With his high profile attorney on one side and his girlfriend on the other, McAfee gave a street side press conference to the media in Guatemala.

    By the time I saw this story, I’d already seen that McAfee has been arrested in Guatemala. Hopefully he will be handed over to us, so police can explore what he knows about Mr. Faull’s murder.

    If he is just deprived of whatever drugs he craves for a few days, he will be ready to discuss the matter.

  2. OriginalWoman says:

    If you was a judge in Belize, there would be no need for lawyers or juries. Not that they make such a big difference in the conviction of criminals. But you always sound so judgemental. As if youhave ALL the facts on hand and ready to hang or kill, by mere assuptions you gey from the media. Granted some things are not as they appear, maybe I too am rushing judgement on you. But before you give your ” holier than tby” views, maybe you should try “smelling the coffee!”

  3. melinda says:

    Agree totally with Storm. He must be on something to make him act this way.

  4. Belizean Pride says:

    according to univision online he has been arrested by the Interpol in Guatemala and is being processed to be expelled from the country. What caught my attention more was that he found his girlfriend here in Belize, his girlfriend’s uncle is a well known lawyer in Guatemala, I believe now of Guatemalans invading Belize slowly with small people that have big links in Guatemala making easier the invasion later in the future, we got to stop this people.

  5. wondering says:

    Arrested in Guatemala? He is not arrested in Guatemala…he is making a reality show at the cost of Gregory Faull. Why show all this bull crap in the first place? What happened to the case itself? Scout other angles, investigate other areas not only because this scumbag is the “person of interes” means that the entire investigation will stop as well. This man is enjoying himself in Guatemala now flanked by his lawyer and girl. No signs of him being arrested as far as i can see. He got what he wanted…resurrect his fame since his dumb anti-virus was flushed down the toilet. We have completely deviated from the real issue here and that is exactly what McAfee wanted and has achieved.

  6. busha says:

    does anyone believe that the Government of Belize is trying to kill dude?

  7. Paul Smith says:

    @busha only people who are paranoid and psycho as McAffee would actually believe that!

  9. stase says:

    I am tired of all the hype around the Mcaffee person. if it is that he is innocent just go talk to the police and go home, to your own country that is. If u dont like belize, GO HOME, DAMN!

  10. Reel says:

    what happen to Arthur Young and Boco T is reel. Mcaffee has reason to fear, you can’t be living in Belize over the past 5 years in you think our police and criminal justice system is free of corruption

  11. robert says:

    Confirmed Guatemalan president about an hour ago said he is not giving political asylum to Mcafee. He will be expelled.

  12. Gone fishing says:

    The irony here is that Interpol is helping Belize to meet McAfee, a person of interest (and prime suspect).

    But Belize is refusing Interpol’s request to hand over Mello, who is indicted for murder and jumped bail, making him a certified international fugitive by various treaties.

  13. kENNY says:

    @Reel, so true.

  14. Nimbo says:

    Belize is just a safe heaven for fugitives…it didn’t take too long for Guat to smell the rotten fish. Don’t want him here..let US handle him since both were US citizens…

  15. Seletar says:

    Good point, @Gone Fishing. The Jewel needs a new government that will try to abide by international norms, instead of the outlaw attitude personified by our glorious PM.

    I hope the McAfee soap opera will recede to back pages. While it involves another terrible personal tragedy, the murder of Mr. Faull, it is not as important in the grand scheme as our sovereign default, our miserable economy and fraudulent national account books, corruption, broken families, cartel influence, and gang violence. Other than those things, it’s a great time to be alive in the Jewel.


    FROM JOHN McFee in jail. (copy?paste)

    “Please email the President of Guatemala.

    I have not once before asked for help for any support for me, it has always been for Eddie and the others that are in jail. Also, Eddie and Cassian are getting out tomorrow, because of your very successful e-mail campaign, and I thank you all.

    Now for the first time, I am asking for support for me. Please email the President of Guatemala and beg him to allow the court system to proceed, to determine my status in Guatemala, and please support the political asylum that I am asking for. Please PLEASE be very POLITE in your communications, and I thank you.”

    Sadly, this is a brain still deep fry on meth.


    I was happy this morning to hear that McFee will be sent back to Belize to face the music for the murder that he committed on the island.

    I only want justice for the family of the man John murdered in cold blood.

    Punishment: chop his legs and fingers off and let the virus have its way with him.

    With such physical pain inflicted on his old tired body we might get to experience some real joy listening to his new song about a little third world country that insists on his early Beheading.

    hey stase,that is what I say to all belizeans, get out of the united states cause we dont want or need you here either, If this is truly how you feel then stop taking our money and dont let us into your country. Additionally cut all ties with the united states cause we dont need derelicts like you speaking out loud about things you dont know, ignorant people are the worst to be around or listen too, so next time you talk like an idiot, i will be sure to put your ignorant self back in check.

  19. Ixchel Pop says:

    McAffe is at the end of the line. I guess all good things must come to an end. I wonder when it will all be over for our corrupt political system.

    “hey stase,that is what I say to all belizeans, get out of the united states cause we dont want or need you here either, If this is truly how you feel then stop taking our money and dont let us into your country.”
