Janice McAfee, the widowed wife of late tech mogul and cryptocurrency supporter John McAfee, believes that U.S. authorities are to blame for her husband’s death, Reuters reports.
Just days prior to the antivirus pioneer's apparent suicide, McAfee wrote that the U.S. government was determined to have him die in prison in a Father's Day note:
US officials are determined to have John die in prison to make an example of him for speaking out against the corruption within government agencies.
In October 2020, the month McAfee was arrested in Barcelona on tax evasion charges, the eccentric cybersecurity expert warned that it wouldn’t be his fault if he were to hang himself.
McAfee’s family calls for a thorough investigation
As reported by U.Today, McAfee hung himself on Wednesday, the day his extradition to the U.S. was approved by a Spanish court.
Echoing McAfee’s lawyers, Janice McAfee asserts that her late husband had no suicidal tendencies.
The software mogul’s family is demanding a “thorough investigation” into his death and a second autopsy.
