John McAfee Is Alive, Well, and Released!
Mike Sanders / 3 years ago
Yesterday, we reported how the official Twitter account for John McAfee had said that the cryptocurrency advocate (and former anti-virus maker) had vanished. Specifically, missing, presumed captured by the CIA. As such, various threats were being made that if he didn’t check-in soon his ‘insurance policy’ of a supposed 31 terabytes of sensitive data would be released.
Well, rejoice (maybe?) as following a new post on his Twitter account, John McAfee is now a free man! In fact, the CIA never had him at all! Somebody did though!
Leaving detention (don't judge my looks – four days of confinement). I was well treated. My superiors were friendly and helpful. In spite of the helpful circumstances, we've decided to move on. More later. pic.twitter.com/V4539uYCHR— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) July 24, 2019
What Happened to John McAfee?
It seems that while docking in the Dominican Republic, both he and his boat were seized by the government. The exact reasoning is unclear, but he was held in ‘detention’ for 4 days where he has said he was treated well.
It does appear, however, that the government did retain a number of his guns and weapons onboard his ‘freedom boat’ and, in addition, have yet to actually release the boat itself. It is said to be being held for “reseach purposes”. Whatever that means!
So, John McAfee is currently using alternative methods (as yet undisclosed) to continue his journey.
Well, US government officials can seemingly relax. The data files (supposedly containing sensitive information on them) are secured again as John McAfee is a free man!
With him running for President next year though, it’ll be interesting to see what wacky adventure he gets involved with next! – If the CIA were after him though, it seems that they missed out this time!
