What is the John McAfee documentary about and where can you watch it?
John McAfee’s documentary follows his life in Belize after relocating due to a police raid on his estate back in 2012.
The raid came after authorities suspected McAfee was involved in drug manufacturing or trafficking.
Subsequently, McAfee's neighbor Greg Faull was murdered, which prompted McAfee to go into hiding before crossing the border to Guatemala and being deported back to the US.
The documentary suggests that McAfee was involved in the murder due to a feud between him and Faull over McAfee's dogs.
However, McAfee was never charged with any crime in Belize and at the time he described the documentary as fiction.
The film originally aired on Showtime but can be streamed on Hulu with a paid subscription.
What happened to John McAfee?
McAfee, 75, reportedly took his own life in and hanged himself in prison in Barcelona, Spain.
According to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, jail staff members tried resuscitating McAfee but were unsuccessful.
Reports of McAfee's death come hours after Spain’s National Court approved his extradition to the US.
McAfee was wanted in America for tax-related criminal charges which carry a prison sentence of up to 30 years.
The decision could have been appealed and the final extradition would have needed to be approved by the Spanish Cabinet.
McAfee’s death has raised questions on social media among his fanbase after the tech mogul tweeted back in 2019 that “If I suicide myself, I didn't. I was whackd. Check my right arm" followed by a picture of his whackd tattoo.
What did John McAfee say about his life?
In the months leading up to his death, McAfee, who said was "on the run," made sensational claims in a series of bizarre Twitter posts.
He alleged he had dirt on “those in power” and threatened to finally expose “the truth” if he was jailed or died.
McAfee, who has a record of making mischievous false statements on social media, appeared to suggest his life was in danger.
He also claimed he had set up a “deadman switch” to spill untold dirt on unnamed people if he were to die or disappear mysteriously.
In an initial cryptic tweet, he wrote: “People ask why I do the things I do.
“An act by itself is incomplete. It's the reason for the act that completes it and provides the real information. I am [on] the run.
“I would be an idiot to explain my 'why's'.”
He then added: “I neither fear death nor run from it. At my age it sits on my shoulder as a constant companion. It makes me fearless.”
