‘Anything is possible’ — John McAfee’s wife responds to faked death claims

‘Anything is possible’ — John McAfee’s wife responds to faked death claims

“John McAfee’s life was shrouded in controversy and it is only fitting that his death is shrouded in controversy as well,” said Janice McAfee.

The wife of crypto evangelist and computer programmer John McAfee has responded to a claim made by her husband’s ex-girlfriend that he faked his death and was currently in hiding.

John McAfee died in a Spanish prison cell in June 2021 while awaiting extradition to the United States on charges of failing to submit tax returns from 2014 to 2018 and not reporting income related to pushing crypto projects and consulting work. He was 75 years old when he passed, and many in and out of the crypto space quickly developed conspiracy theories around his detainment and death.

In a Netflix documentary on McAfee’s life and death released on Wednesday titled Running with the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee, ex-girlfriend namedSamantha Herrera claimed to have received a phone call from the computer programmer two weeks after his reported passing:

Herrera did not provide further details in the documentary, but her claims cannot be independently corroborated at this time. Officials in Spain had been holding McAfee since October 2020, but he was still the subject of many allegations in the United States and abroad. McAfee himself had hinted that he might be targeted by U.S. authorities, posting a picture of a tattoo to his Twitter account in November 2019, claiming that “If I suicide myself, I didn’t. I was whackd.”
