John McAfee’s Body Still Hasn’t Been Returned

John McAfee's Body Still Hasn't Been Returned

A little over a year after his death, tech giant John McAfee’s body has still yet to be returned to his family.

McAfee’s body is still being held in a Spanish morgue after the tech guru was found dead in his cell by “suicide”.

Many believe McAfee was murdered due to the fact McAfee posted on Twitter months before his death that he would never commit suicide and if he ends up dead in prison it’s because he was whacked.

Days before his death McAfee was set to be extradited to a US Court to face tax evasion charges.

Sky News broke the story and shared these details:

John McAfee’s body is still in a Spanish morgue – one year after the software entrepreneur was found dead in his prison cell.

The 75-year-old was discovered a few hours after Spain’s high court had authorised his extradition to the US on tax evasion charges.

An post mortem had concluded that he killed himself, but McAfee’s widow said he was not suicidal and would seek “answers”.

His family challenged the findings, but their request for further checks was denied.

And although McAfee’s relatives appealed this decision, a judge subsequently ruled that his body could not be handed to the family until the appeal was resolved.

A spokesperson for Catalonia’s justice department said it was uncommon for identified bodies reclaimed by their families to be stored for such a long time.

Reuters added these details:

The body of software entrepreneur John McAfee remains in a Spanish morgue a year after his death as a legal case lodged by his family to demand further checks is yet to be resolved, authorities and his lawyer said.

McAfee, who launched the world’s first commercial anti-virus software in 1987, was found dead, aged 75, on June 23 last year in his prison cell a few hours after Spain’s high court authorised his extradition to the United States on tax evasion charges.

The British-American mogul had been jailed in the Barcelona-area Brians 2 jail for eight months following his arrest after years on the run from U.S. authorities.

The autopsy determined he died by suicide. Prison authorities said he had already attempted to kill himself four months before dying. read more

Shortly after his death, McAfee’s widow said he was not suicidal and that she would seek “answers.”
