John McAfee, the controversial software engineer and crypto advocate, could still be alive, according to his ex-girlfriend.
“I don’t know if I should say, but two weeks ago, after his death, I got a call from Texas: ‘It’s me, John. I paid off people to pretend that I am dead, but I am not dead,'” Herrera claims in the Netflix documentary “Running With the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee,” out Wednesday.
A new revelation is now being made as McAfee’s ex-girlfriend, Samantha Herrera, said with all certainty that the Anti-Virus pioneer faked his own death, is still alive, and currently lives in Texas.
Back in June 2021, the world got perplexed when it was revealed that John McAfee, the controversial software engineer, and crypto advocate, was found dead in a Spanish prison.
While it is unclear how real the revelations are considering the fact that Herrera had a motive as McAfee broke her heart when she refused to elope with him. According to Herrera’s reports, McAfee told her that there are just about three people in this world that know that he is alive.
McAfee’s death did not really bring up a lot of uproar at the time because the timing of the alleged suicide was just about a few weeks after the Spanish legal authorities approved the warrant to extradite him to the United States, where he was supposed to face tax evasion charges.
While the Netflix director Charlie Russell was also shocked to hear the news again. This revelation may serve as the key basis for a more targeted manhunt for McAfee.
