John McAfee’s suicide reports arouse skepticism and spark conspiracy theories
Often times, thanks to his edgy predictions and larger-than-life personality, John McAfee is a mocked figure in the crypto community and is no longer in the crypto community spotlight. However, after his alleged “suicide” occurred in a Spanish cell on June 23, tributes were sent in droves to the tech-savvy man who was also an early advocate of digital currencies – particularly Bitcoin (BTC) and later Monero (XMR).
McAfee spent the last few years of his life in exile. In this regard, it has been widely reported that the creator of McAfee Antivirus has been run away by US authorities for evading its tax obligations, which are said to be worth more than $ 4 million. He was named on a total of 10 federal charges and sentenced to extradition to the United States just hours before the news of his suicide became known.
After being arrested by local authorities at Barcelona Airport last year, McAfee appears to have adapted quite well to his prison environment. “I have friends. Good food. Everything is good,” he said tweeted in October 2020. This seems like in the eyes of former National Security Agency agent and whistleblower Edward Snowden offer that the US legal system is so broken that even local defendants “would rather die in someone else’s cell” than be subject to such an unfair system.
Did McAfee Predict His Early Death?
One of the strangest aspects of this whole development is that McAfee has stressed time and again over the past several years that American officials are sending him subtle but fairly clear messages indicating that his time here is almost over and he is leaving. will soon be “suicide”.
On this subject, one of his tweets is alarming read: “Indeed, US officials are saying, ‘We are here for you, McAfee! We’re going to kill ourselves. ‘I got a tattoo today just in case. If I committed suicide, I wouldn’t. I was crazy Look at my right arm. “
Not only that, in one of the Commands, he made it clear that it was not his fault that he was found hanged in his cell, but an attempt “a la Epstein” to silence him. McAfee claims he has a lot in the dirt to various world elites, government organizations, etc., even went so far as to say that he would begin “naming” – including a CIA employee who was appointed to the highest rank and directly involved in many sketchy business activities. .
In addition, in an interview with McAfee’s widow Janice on June 25, she claimed that the British-American financier wasn’t the least bit “suicide” the last time she spoke to him, apparently just hours before his body. was found in his cell.
And while authorities said the tech giant’s death was nothing suspicious, following the above social media revelations, people have said that there may have been a similar “bad game”.
Finally, just a day before his death, Spain’s national court announced that it had reached an agreement with US authorities to extradite McAfee – a final decision is pending and pending further judicial investigation. In fact, McAfee and his lawyer planned to appeal the decision, further suggesting that extradition pressures may not have led McAfee to suicide.
McAfee’s mysterious last post on Instagram
Shortly after news of his death surfaced on the Internet, calls for McAfee’s planned death attracted widespread attention. The fire burned first, as McAfee’s official Instagram account divided a picture of the letter “Q”, presumably shortly after his death.
The “Q” mentioned here is directly related to the QAnon conspiracy theory that an elite pedophile group runs a global child sex trading ring and has a direct say in its operations. Furthermore, the theory suggests that this group of high-ranking elites can manipulate the global economy thanks to their control over the fractional banking system.
As expected, a large number of QAnon influencers on Telegram began sharing images claiming that McAfee was just another victim builder – much like Jeffery Epstein – and had to due to the secrets he holds regarding the powers Committing “suicide” to the world.
Killswitch was involved, but where is all the information?
In a tweet in late 2019, McAfee uncertainly stated that in the event of his “mysterious disappearance” he would disclose around 31 terabytes of incriminating data (with various government officials and people in positions of power) to the media. But even if people around the world continue to eagerly await this information, it seems that such data has not yet been provided.
In fact, he is said to have even written in a text message that he had backed up a treasure trove of sensitive data on several hard drives and stored it in his apartment near 88th Street north of Miami Beach. However, a quick look at McAfee’s feed reveals no such posts, suggesting that the message may have been tweeted and then deleted, or it could have just been an entire fantasy.
In recent years, McAfee has repeatedly been involved in numerous conspiracies and in one of his posts it has been made clear that he describes himself as a “forced suicide” in front of Jeffrey Epstein, the multimillionaire and convicted sex offender.
As part of the caption on his Instagram post “Q,” he added, “I never said Jeffrey Epstein was murdered. I said he didn’t commit suicide. Dissimilarity. Can be alive. It could never have existed. Could be murdered. I do not know. I just know that he didn’t commit suicide. “
After all, the tech entrepreneur recently launched a cryptocurrency called pizza that advertises itself with a picture of Hillary Clinton eating pizza. This trait appears to be directly related to the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which gained a lot of momentum a few years ago after the former foreign minister’s email leaked online via Wikileaks.
Will the story of John McAfee live on?
McAfee was born in 1945 to an American father who was serving in the military and then stationed in the United Kingdom. in math before moving to Silicon Valley in the late 1970s. Within a decade and a half, he not only worked for Lockheed, but also spent a significant amount of his personal time studying software solutions. Software can help combat the growing problem of computer viruses.
In the early 1990s, John founded McAfee Associates from the comfort of his own home and began to think about new solutions to combat the various digital threats prevailing at the time. As a result, the company was making nearly $ 5 million a year before the dawn of the new millennium.
After his death, dedications poured in from all sides. Example: Bitcoin influencer and podcaster developer Anthony Pompliano divided a post that McAfee remembers as a “kind, fun, and extremely intelligent” person. Just like Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson, said praised McAfee’s contributions to computer science and called the man “one of the most enigmatic and interesting people in crypto space and in computer history.”
While there will always be people who will or will not believe the story that the US government played a role in McAfee’s death, the truth of the matter is that he stated that he made a lot of dirt on the world’s elite. It remains to be seen whether any of this so-called top secret information will get onto the Internet.
That doesn’t change the fact that McAfee is not only a true pioneer in the field of digital security, but also a visionary who foresaw the rise of electrons, even when space is scarce.
Aside from conspiracies, the technology pioneer is overlooked by many.
