by suicide.A statement from the regional Catalan government did not name McAfee, but described attempting to revive a 75-year-old U.S. citizen who was awaiting extradition to his country. Just hours earlier, the Spain’s National Court ruled for McAfee’s extradition to the United States.
McAfee was wanted in the U.S. for evading taxes, which could have resulted in a 30-year prison sentence. Tennessee prosecutors charged the computer software entrepreneur after he failed to report income he made from speaking engagements, selling the rights to his life story for a documentary and promoting cryptocurrencies. His arrest came in October 2020 at Barcelona’s international airport. Since then, McAfee had been waiting in prison for his extradition hearing. During a hearing earlier this month, he claimed the charges were politically motivated and feared he would spend his life in prison upon returning to the U.S.
McAfee was previously a person of interest in the death of George Faull and ordered by a Florida court to pay $25 million in a wrongful death lawsuit by Faull’s estate. When Faull was found dead in his Belizean home, McAfee left for Guatemala. The computer software tycoon kept a low profile until his attempt to run for the U.S. presidency in 2016. headtopics.com
