John McAfee says he left Belize, is still on the run

McAfee tells CNN he did not kill his neighbor

Software company founder John McAfee says he has left Belize and is still on the run. He's told The Associated Press "we are not in Belize, but not quite out of the woods yet."


McAfee is a "person of interest" in the death of American expatriate, Gregory Faull, who was shot and killed last month at his home on the Belize island of Ambergris Caye. Faull, a Florida businessman, was a neighbor of McAfee's in Belize.

The latest chapter in the saga of the eccentric anti-virus company founder featured rumors over the weekend that he had been caught.

Police in the Central American nation have denied he was captured.

In an email to the AP, McAfee confirmed a posting to his website that described in what appeared to be joking tones how he had avoided authorities by mounting a distraction.

In the blog Monday, McAfee claimed that "my 'double,' carrying on a North Korean passport under my name, was in fact detained in Mexico for pre-planned misbehavior."


'I will certainly not turn myself in,' McAfee told CNN.
