Antivirus pioneer John McAfee killed himself in his prison cell at Brians 2 Penitentiary Center in Barcelona, according to an El País report that cites police sources.
Prison guards found McAfee dead this afternoon. Medical professionals have failed to resuscitate him.
An investigation is underway, but the report states that all signs point to suicide.
The late tech mogul was arrested in Barcelona in October 2020 on tax evasion charges.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission also sued McAfee for allegedly being paid to promote initial coin offerings (ICO) on social media.
U.Today offers heartfelt condolences to McAfee’s family.
