“Know that if I hang myself, a la Epstein, it will be no fault of mine,” McAfee promised after being thrown in jail
John McaFee, the antivirus pioneer, cryptocurrency advocate, and former libertarian U.S. presidential candidate who was found dead in a Spanish jail cell on Wednesday, repeatedly warned supporters that he believed he would killed by the U.S. government while in jail via an assassination staged as a suicide. Local authorities have claimed that the 75-year-old’s death “looks like a suicide.”
On November 30, 2019, Mcafee tweeted, “Getting subtle messages from U.S. officials saying, in effect: “We’re coming for you McAfee! We’re going to kill yourself”. I got a tattoo today just in case. If I suicide myself, I didn’t. I was whackd. Check my right arm.” A photo accompanying the tattoo showed a tattoo on McAfee’s arm titled ‘WHCKD,” a cryptocurrency Mcafee had launched to draw attention to the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein in jail earlier that year.
“I am content in here. I have friends. The food is good. All is well. Know that if I hang myself, a la Epstein, it will be no fault of mine,” McAfee wrote from jail in October 2020, following his arrest in a Spanish airport.
