John McAfee’s widow says that her husband was not suicidal when she last spoke to him and he told her he would call her later that evening.
McAfee was found dead on Wednesday hours after a Spanish court ruled that he would be extradited to the U.S., where he faced life in prison reportedly for tax evasion.
Speaking outside the Spanish prison where the anti-virus software tycoon was found dead, Janice McAfee, said: “His last words to me were, ‘I love you and I will call you in the evening.”
“Those words are not words of somebody who is suicidal,” she added.
The widow asserted that a plan of action was already in place for the extradition, with an appeal set to be lodged against the ruling.
His lawyer said McAfee had not seemed suicidal and his widow alleged that he had been executed to stop him revealing what he knew about important people in the US, revelations McAfee once said were poised for release if he died suspiciously. He also claimed that he had gathered over 31 terabytes of data implicating deep state and CIA officials in criminal activity and had repeatedly insisted in tweets and public statements that he was not planning on killing himself, asserting that he was “whacked” if that happened.
John McAfree had been very critical of the Covid Vaccine, which appears to have angered the US Government who instructed Spanish authorities to confiscate his mobile phone. However, according to reports, guards in the Spanish jail failed to find the device and, the tweets continued right up to his death.
