McAfee tells AP in a telephone interview from an undisclosed location that he didn’t kill Faull, though he acknowledged he had differences with the dead man. Belize police have said they want to question his as a “person of interest” in the murder.
I barely knew him, I barely spoke ten words to him in the last three years. Certainly he was not my favorite person and I was not his. He was a heavy drinker and an annoyance. But the world is full of annoyances; if we killed all of our annoyances, there would be nobody left.
McAfee says he is in hiding, unarmed and accompanied only by a young woman, changing locations and telephones frequently to stay one step ahead of a Belize police unit he says wants to kill him.
