Software founder McAfee denies killing neighbour
SAN PEDRO, Belize (AP) - Software company founder John McAfee said Wednesday he is in hiding, unarmed and accompanied only by a young woman, changing locations and telephones frequently to stay one step ahead of a Belize police unit he says wants to kill him.
Belize police have said they want to question Mr McAfee, who they describe as a "person of interest" in the slaying of fellow American Gregory Viant Faull.
Mr Faull, 52, was shot to death over the weekend on the Caribbean island where both men lived.
Mr McAfee, 67, who had a run-in with police earlier this year, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from an undisclosed location that he didn't kill Mr Faull, though he acknowledged he had differences with the dead man.
