McAfee anti-computer virus developer accuses ex employee of 'planning to kill him'
The creator of the McAfee anti-virus software, John McAfee, claims to have a recording of a former employee plotting to kill him by planting a bomb at his beachside villa in Belize.
McAfee, who is wanted for questioning over the murder of Gregory Faull, 52, a retired American builder from Florida, claimed there was a conspiracy to murder him by two of his Belizean employees.
Writing on his personal blog, McAfee published a transcript of an alleged conversation he claims to have obtained through secret recording devices kept in the grounds of his property between an ex-employee and a younger man who works for McAfee.
The transcript, taken from a recording posted on November 20, appears to implicate the older man in a plot to frame and murder McAfee, possibly in retribution for firing him, the Telegraph reports.
According to the paper, he is alleged to have said, 'you and I we are going to plan how to make a bomb so that it explodes on that m----- f-----.
"I am going to wait and as he come out am going to shoot him. Because I was a BDF (Belizean Defence Force) I now have something that's round. I could give it to you. you pull the pin like this. You walk pass the gate and when no one notices then you pull out the pin you turn it then a lot of them are going to get f-----. ," he added.
According to the paper, the current employee is then quoted as describing a wider conspiracy involving the local police, who would be called to the scene of the crime when the bomb was planted, potentially framing McAfee for possessing explosives.
