John McAfee, an anti-virus entrepreneur was found dead in a Barcelona prison cell.

He had been facing charges over tax evasion and that the Spanish court-ordered to extradite him to the US. The medics, while finding the 75-year old unconscious, tried to resuscitate him but all in vain.

The initial investigation discloses that John has taken his own life. McAfee VirusScan helped to spark a multi-billion dollar industry in the computer world and was eventually sold to technology giant Intel for more than $7.6bn (£4.7bn).

He was arrested by the Spanish authorities in 2020 when he was about to board Turkey. However, the authorities seized him at that very moment. He failed to pay the tax despite earning in crypto currency. The US justice department alleged that McAfee evaded tax liability by having his income paid into bank accounts and crypto currency exchange accounts in the names of nominees.

He had argued in a hearing earlier this month that the charges against him were politically motivated and that he would spend the rest of his life in prison if returned to the US. John also tried to join a political party as a candidate in the elections of 2016 and 2020. In 2019, he tweeted about the failure to pay tax returns.
