John McAfee, The Guy Who Designed Anti-Virus Software And Made Millions Before Going Nuts, Allegedly Faked His Own Death

McAfee was widely reported to have hanged himself inside a Spanish jail in June 2021 while awaiting US extradition on tax evasion charges. But, according to his Belizean ex-girlfriend Samantha Herrera, he faked his own death, moved to Texas and is still alive.

“I don’t know if I should say, but two weeks ago, after his death, I got a call from Texas: ‘It’s me, John. I paid off people to pretend that I am dead, but I am not dead,'” Herrera claims in the Netflix documentary “Running With the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee,” out Wednesday.

Herrera says he told her that “there are only three persons in this world that know I’m still alive” and then asked her to run away with him.

Fucking John McAfee, man. He is turning into a click machine for the internet. Millionaire, mogul, fugitive, off the grid, on the grid, drugs, women, local mafia connections, more drugs, weapons, arrests, and finally an alleged suicide in a Spanish jail cell...BACK FROM THE DEAD. Incredible. The man has given so much. 

I think...faking your own death has to be the biggest rush and power move imaginable. At this point I think my life's ambition is to fake my own death. As far as I can see it is ALL upside. You get to see what people say about you after you're dead. You never have to come up with an excuse to get out of an obligation because, well, you're dead. Can't get sucked into your gf's friend's birthday party if you're dead. Don't have to pay taxes if you're dead. That's on your descendants. And if you don't want them to get your money/assets and have to pay taxes on it, well just cash out at ATMs strategically and jet. 

That is literally what this guy on today's dogwalk did. He was tired of being in the Air Force and decided enough was enough. Took out all his cash and peaced without telling anyone and lived under a different name in a different place for 35 fucking years. Didn't change a thing about his appearance, just got a fake passport. People thought he was a spy, people thought he was abducted, people thought he was dead. None of that. He was just going to Giants games in San Francisco. Incredible. Off the grid. No record of him anywhere. Disappeared like a fart in the wind. 

I think I'd want to do that just to have a new favorite team. Like, just leave all that Chicago stuff behind. Not worried about the quarterback or Patrick Kane rumors. Fuck that. I am now Paul O'Brien and I am a huge Colorado sports fan. Elway and Manning and Russell Wilson. Some shit in between, but three hall of famers, multiple super bowls, and that clean mountain air. The only thing that'll cost you is your entire life and all your relationships and your loved ones. But...QBs. Think about it. Faking your own death sounds pretty sweet if you get to pop back up in a happy sports town.
