The creator of antivirus software, John McAfee, has been found dead in his cell at the age of 75. The officials of the Penitentiary Center of Barcelona (Spain) tried to revive him but it was impossible. Initial indications point to suicide, pending the results of the autopsy. McAfee, who was pending extradition to the United States for alleged tax evasion, learned this Wednesday that the Audiencia Nacional had authorized his extradition to the United States.

The prison guards and the prison medical services immediately intervened to perform resuscitation maneuvers on McAfee, but in the end the doctors certified his death.

John Mcafee entered the Brians II prison on October 4 last year by order of the Audiencia Nacional, which agreed the extradition to the United States of the creator of the McAfee computer antivirus for alleged tax evasion by having hidden high income between 2016 and 2018.

McAfee was arrested in October at Barcelona’s El Prat airport as he was about to catch a flight to Istanbul and has been in custody since then. During the extradition hearing, the businessman claimed to have paid “millions of dollars in taxes” and said he was the victim of political persecution for having denounced corruption in the IRS. “There is no evidence that such a thing could be happening,” responded the National Court in Madrid, which added that the claim “is based on a crime against the public treasury -tax evasion- and that the requirements for granting it are met”.
