He could be in a secret room under his house. But suppose you were some young Belizean girl, and you were hiding him to try to figure out how to get $1 million out of the rich white guy. How would you do it?Everyone in Belize will hide the gringo millionaire and try to work some angle to get$1 million. So suppose it were you and he knocked on your door. How would it go?

How would it go?maybe the guy could optimise his strategy by (say) catching the heart of 100 local babies, assuming 100K bucks is enough to satisfy each.another option is corrupting local police.

"Gringo Millionaire" - it's a good title for a book.

How would it go?well, he's not a suspect he's merely wanted for questioning which makes sense since he's the direct neighbor of the dead guy. so maybe nobody really cares about him. also his house is like next to the mexican border, and he has boats.

Intel bought McAfee in 2010, so it's their problem. I can't imagine Intel appreciates the weird PR -- Intel's comment on the story is that John McAfee left the company in 1994.

I can't imagine Intel appreciates the weird PR -- Intel's comment on the story is that John McAfee left the company in 1994.It's funny how people start to like McAfee (the guy). It's a bit like Kim Dotcom: At first the media tried really hard to portray him as the offender but now most people actually root for him. Same with McAfee: At first he seems like that crazy narcotics dude but when you read more you realize that he's actually a baller.
