-- millionaire -- company founder John McAfee has finally turned up after weeks on the run from police McAfee is the guy behind the computer antivirus program of the same name and he's a person of interest.
In the killing of a neighbor in the Central American nation of beliefs.
But he sneaked out of the country to neighboring Guatemala and claims the -- -- government has been harassing him.
To hiring security guards without -- license.
Company and those -- is okay.
That neighbor had reportedly complained about Mac -- -- dogs and then turned up dead shortly after somebody poisoned the dogs.
McAfee says he is seeking political asylum in Guatemala and can prove the -- -- government is corrupt.
Jeff -- joins us now he is a contributing editor for travel and leisure I'm not sure people understand why he's Seeking Asylum in Guatemala Jeff because.
He really wasn't brought up on charges in -- so why you move next door.
Right well it's been -- very strange and almost bizarre story from the get go.
And but I talked to the believes police today and they confirmed -- under believes -- they can detain him for questioning for up to 48 hours.
So indeed you know there was reason for him to be on the land he carried out this.
Being on the -- -- -- very unusual way he's been talking to the press even inviting reporters along with him.
And you made the mistake inviting some reporters who who posted.
An iPhone picture.
To their blog -- may contain meta data showing where he wise to this is why we know he's in Guatemala because of a slip up from workers from reporters invited along with him.
Given the -- in -- of article -- -- look we don't have the resource is to chase this guy around the world he's not a suspect is a person of interest brand to mean you've got this job that you've usually got all these different disguises he's hiding in -- shelters.
He seems to be running from nobody.
Well right -- -- must wonder is he really on the -- ours it's all creation of his imagination.
But you know he -- there was murder -- -- somebody murdered his neighbor and -- who's been on the run ever sense.
And that -- police say that they're gonna announce within the next day or -- what they intend to do they've worked very closely with Guatemala in the past their police forces conduct joint exercises together.
It's entirely clear that he's really in a much better position now.
Then he was when he was in -- -- because he's said all along the Belize police -- -- rob right and the police police work hand in hand with the Guatemalan police so really he's not in much better shape.
Well most people probably considerably is a particularly -- country as Central America goes not to -- any particular country down there but I don't know of Guatemala's -- necessarily considered better.
Yeah I mean from the outside looking in do you believe that they're gonna go after this guy ending even following this.
I would you know listen in the one rule of thumb when it comes to covering John -- is to not believe anything -- here.
Double check everything he's consistently attracted his well for instance when this news broke about the metadata in the photograph he immediately came out.
On his blog and said I -- that metadata.
Then he -- -- -- that knowing that he hadn't picked him out of it.
But so he says very publicly that he's gonna have a press conference tomorrow.
This in the -- big Guatemalan police could pick him up at any time hold him for up to 48 hours turn him over to believe is at at at will.
On and so I really question whether that's gonna happen.
But we'll soon find out Jeff was going to be assert my pleasure thanks.
