'If I suicide myself, I didn't': John McAfee's 2019 Tweet surfaces online after he's found dead in Spanish Prison



John McAfee, the founder of antivirus company McAfee, was found dead in a Spanish prison near Barcelona on Wednesday afternoon June 23, after the Spanish high court authorised his extradition to the United States



The British technology entrepreneur reportedly committed suicide in a prison cell, just hours after a preliminary ruling for his extradition to the United States on charges of tax evasion. The charges carried a prison sentence of up to 30 years.



McAfee was arrested last October at Barcelona's international airport as he was about to board a flight to Istanbul.



In a statement, the Catalan justice department said that prison officers and medics had tried to save the life of a 75-year-old man but had been unsuccessful. After attempts to save him failed, he was pronounced dead.



"Judicial staff have been dispatched to the prison and are investigating the cause of death," the statement said, adding that "Everything points to death by suicide.
