On the run, software guru McAfee says has left Belize


MEXICO CITY (REUTERS) - US anti-virus software guru John McAfee said on Monday he has left the tropical paradise of Belize, where police want to question him in connection with his neighbor's murder.

Mr McAfee has been in hiding since police said they wanted to question him as "a person of interest" about the murder of fellow American Gregory Faull, with whom McAfee had quarreled.

Mr McAfee says he believes authorities in Belize would kill him if he turned himself in for questioning. Belize's prime minister has called the 67-year-old "bonkers".

"We are not in Belize, but not quite out of the woods yet," McAfee wrote on his blog, saying he was accompanied by two journalists and a woman called Sam.
