'His last words to me were I love you': John McAfee was not committing suicide, says widow

Two days after British-American tycoon and antivirus creator John McAfee was found dead during a Spanish prison, his partner has said that her husband didn't show any signs of being suicidal when she last spoke to him hours before he died, raising suspicion over his death. McAfee had said he would call her in his last call, the widow has said.

John McAfee, the creator of the McAfee antivirus software, was found dead in his cell during a jail near Barcelona, a government official confirmed on Wednesday.

The Spanish authorities have rushed to swiftly conduct the autopsy on McAfee's body. However, the officials maintain that everything found at the scene of death points to death by suicide.

“His last words to me were 'I love you and that i will call you within the evening,'” Janice McAfee said shortly after she recovered her late husband's belongings outside the Brians 2 penitentiary northwest of Barcelona.

“Those words aren't words of someone who is suicidal,” Janice said. The widow of the 75-year-old has sought a “thorough investigation” in her first public remarks since the software entrepreneur's death.

Embroiled during a evasion controversy, McAfee was arrested last year in October from the Barcelona airport on a warrant issued by Tennessee prosecutors who were pushing for a software master's imprisonment for 30 years on the alleged charges of evasion running to quite $4 million in taxes.

McAfee's death came each day before the Spain National Court had announced its decision to extradite him to the US, which might have resulted in criminal proceedings against him. However, the choice of the court wasn't final.

Tennessee prosecutors charged 75-year-old McAfee with evading taxes after failing to report income made up of promoting cryptocurrencies while he did consultancy work, also as income from speaking engagements and selling the rights to his biography for a documentary.

Janice has alleged that McAfee's death may be a results of politically motivated charges. “We had an idea of action already in situ to appeal that call ,” the 38-year-old Janice McAfee told reporters. “I blame the US authorities for this tragedy: due to these politically motivated charges against him my husband is now dead.”

Authorities have said McAfee's autopsy could take "days or weeks".

The couple reportedly met in 2012 in Miami and married the subsequent year. John McAfee met Janice in 2012 in Miami. the 2 formalised their relationship into a wedding and had several children from previous relationships, Janice said.
