“John McAfee did not kill himself”, Widow Janice McAfee said as she blames US authorities for death.
VIDEOKINGS — Janice McAfee insisted that they had a plan of action in place to appeal the Spanish court’s decision to extradite her husband, and claimed that he did not appear suicidal before his death.
Janice McAfee, the widow of anti-virus tycoon John McAfee who was found dead in his prison cell in Barcelona this week where he was awaiting extradition to the United States, has demanded a thorough investigation into the incident.
On 15 October 2020 John McAfee himself tweeted:
“I am content in here. I have friends.
The food is good. All is well.
Know that if I hang myself, a la Epstein, it will be no fault of mine.”
While authorities in Spain have already suggested that “everything at the scene” in McAfee’s cell indicated that he killed himself, as AP put it, Janice insisted that his last words to her were not “the words of someone who is suicidal.”
“His last words to me were ‘I love you and I will call you in the evening’,” she told reporters outside the Brians 2 penitentiary where she arrived to collect her husband’s belongings.
The day before McAfee was found dead, Spain’s National Court announced it had agreed to extradite him to the US, though that decision was not final.
