Storylines 1

Former NASA programmer John McAfee develops the first commercial anti-virus program which is eventually acquired by Intel in 2010 for $7.68 billion. McAfee's personal fortune takes a significant hit in the wake of the financial crisis, forcing him to sell almost everything he owns. While leaving in Belize, Belizean authorities seek him out to question him about the murder of American expatriate and neighbor Gregory Viant Faull in Orange Walk Town. McAfee seeks political asylum in Guatemala, but his plea is denied and he is designated for deportation after allegedly entering the country illegally. While at a detention center, McAfee fakes a heart attack in order to give his attorney time to file a series of appeals that prevents his deportation to Belize, and on December 12, 2012, he was deported to the United States.
