Crypto diehard John McAfee, his wife Janice Dyson and all crew members are still alive, according to campaign manager Rob Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Loggia-Ramirez.
Loggia-Ramirez claims that they are soon to be out of confinement without providing any further details.

Sparring with the US government
As reported by U.Today, McAfee disappeared from the radar following his tweets about the CIA trying to ‘collect’ him. He was living in exile on a bot after being charged with multiple felonies by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Prior to that, the former antivirus tycoon alleged that the US authorities are after him because of his anti-taxation stance. In the interim, he accidentally revealed his SSN to more than a million of his Twitter followers.
The fact that McAfee’s own campaign manager knew nothing about his whereabouts, prompted speculations that the US government has finally nabbed the notorious millionaire.
An ace up his sleeve
On June 9, the crypto baron promised to expose a corrupt CIA officer and Bahamian officials. In case of his arrest or disappearance, 31+ terabytes of data would be released to the press.
Shortly after McAfee’s disappearance, Loggia-Ramirez confirmed that his boss has secret data with individuals around the globe.
It remains to be seen whether it can be used as leverage to grant McAfee freedom.
