Janice McAfee, John McAfee’s widow, has called the “suicide narrative” into doubt, claiming that there was no mention of a suicide note when she picked up his possessions from jail.
Janice McAfee, the wife of antivirus pioneer John McAfee, says she can’t “accept the suicide story” about her husband’s death until an enquiry is concluded.
In a Wednesday Twitter post, McAfee noted that she is still in shock as she expressed her disbelief that the 75-year-old would kill himself because of looming extradition to the United States to face charges of tax evasion and the possibility of life in prison.
The outspoken crypto proponent was found dead in his jail cell within hours of a Spanish court ordering his extradition to the U.S. on June 23. An official autopsy is being conducted by Spanish authorities, but newspaper El Pais has cited unnamed sources saying preliminary results showed the death was by suicide.
McAfee called the mainstream media a “malignant cancer” and questioned the “story of John’s suicide,” adding that the claimed “suicide note” found in his pocket was never mentioned when she picked up his stuff from jail and was something the MSM discovered before she did.
According to McAfee, the judgement by Spanish courts came as no surprise to John and would not have pushed him over the brink because he was prepared to appeal the process:
“We had a plan of action in place to begin the appeal process and we discussed plans for the next stages of his legal fight. The extradition would not have happened immediately, it would have taken many months at least.”
“John was a fighter and he had so much more fight left in him. He told me not to worry, we would continue to fight all the necessary appeals,” she added.
Denial is the first of the “five stages of grief,” and many people, including Edward Snowden and Charles Hoskinson, have stated publicly the suicide was an understandable response to the situation McAfee was in. However, conspiracy theories quickly began to swirl in a similar fashion to the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, asserting that McAfee had not died from his own hand.
McAfee Antivirus creator John McAfee boasted that he had enough information on the US government to be killed, remarking in December 2019 that “if I wanted to commit suicide, I didn’t.” I was messed up. Check out my right arm,” he said, referring to his “WHACKD” tattoo.
His bereaved spouse is hoping that an enquiry will provide additional information.
“The investigation into John’s death is still ongoing, but I will share what information I can as soon as it becomes available. Until then, I refuse to believe the’suicide’ tale peddled by the cancerous disease known as the MSM. They are not to be believed, and their anonymous sources are not to be trusted,” she stated.
I cannot begin to describe this pain I am feeling. That everyone who truly loved John is feeling. I have been struggling to write this tweet since the news of John’s death. I still cannot believe he is really gone. I miss you and I will love you forever John David. pic.twitter.com/FnmpaCWxCO
