SummarySoftware company founder John McAfee says he's hiding in plain sight, wearing a disguise as he watches police and reporters stake out his home _ and blogging about it all.

Faull was murdered. “There were many people at the house with me.”

McAfee, the creator of the McAfee antivirus program, has led a life of eccentricity since he sold his stake in the anti-virus software company that is named for him in the early 1990s and moved to Belize about three years ago to lower his taxes.

He told The New York Times in 2009 that he had lost all but $4 million of his $100 million fortune in the U.S. financial crisis. However, a story on the Gizmodo website quoted him as calling that claim ``not very accurate at all.'' He has dabbled in yoga, ultra-light aircraft and producing herbal medications.

Neighbors say McAfee seemed to keep company with a lot of younger women, and in his blog he acknowledged that raised some questions.

“Many have commented that these women were only with me because of my money - a fact that I have to agree with,'' he wrote.

“I am wealthy and living in a country of extreme poverty,'' McAfee added. “Parents here `promote' attractive daughters to men with money constantly ... I am not foolish enough to believe that many young women could love a 67 year man.''
