Tech guru John McAfee’s wife Janice does not believe he killed himself,in him”. John McAfee’s wife Janice has said she does not believe the tech guru killed himself, claiming the story of his spread like a “cancer”. The widow posted a lengthy statement to Twitter on Tuesday in a Spanish prison last month.
John was a fighter and had so much more fight left in him,” she wrote.
“He told me to be strong and not to worry; we wouldall necessary appeals. “His to me were I love you, I will call you in the evening, but sadly, that call never happened. “The story of John’s ‘suicide’ was already prepared and presented to the public before his attorneys or I was even notified of his death.” Several conspiracies have surfaced on the internet following McAfee’s death in Spain, in which all signs “pointed to a suicide”. The antivirus tycoon, 73, was to be extradited to the United States.
McAfee’s widow Janice and his close friends have said he was not suicidal.
“I do not accept the ‘suicide’ story that has been spread,” she said on Tuesday. “Words cannot describe how enraged I am at the fact that I had to hear the news of John’s death via a DM on Twitter.
“And now it’s being conveniently reported that there was a ‘suicide note’ found in his pocket, something that was not mentioned when I collected John’s belongings from the prison.”
Janice met her tech mogul husband in 2012 in Miami and said, “I blame the US authorities for this tragedy. My husband is now dead because of thesecharges against him.”
The widow said her husband had not been suicidal in the hours before his death, adding, “His last words to me wereyou in the evening.’
Those words are not the words of somebody who is suicidal.
Relatives of the antivirus software pioneer also questioned his death by suicide as they referenced his previous claims of “authorities trying to shut him up”.
Shelley Uden said she was “unfortunate” to hear of her cousin’s death, adding, “If he did take his own life, we might never know why”. McAfee’s Spanish lawyer, Javier Villalba, said the entrepreneur’s death had surprised his wife and other relatives, adding he would seek to get “to the bottom” of his client’s death.
“This has been like pouring cold water on the family and his defense team,” Mr. Villalba told the Associated Press on Thursday. “Nobody expected it; he had not said goodbye.” Only threebefore his death, McAfee’s wife Janice had claimed authorities were “determined” he would die in prison in a chilling Father’s Day message.
