John McAfee’s Body Is Still in a Spanish Morgue a Year After He Passed, His Widow Wants Answers

A year ago on June 23, the anti-virus software tycoon John McAfee was found dead in a Spanish prison after Spain’s high court approved McAfee’s extradition to the United States. Today, McAfee’s body is still in a Spanish morgue as a legal case involving an independent autopsy is yet unresolved.

John McAfee’s Controversial Death Investigation Is Still in Limbo

The now-deceased cryptocurrency proponent and anti-virus software tycoon John McAfee’s corpse is still in the morgue after an entire year has passed since his alleged suicide. McAfee reportedly took his own life on June 23, 2021, after he was wanted for tax evasion by U.S. law enforcement officials. At the time, a Spanish high court authorized McAfee’s extradition to America to face the tax-related criminal charges.

Before Spain’s high court approved the preliminary extradition ruling, McAfee was arrested in October 2020 at Barcelona–El Prat Airport. McAfee was charged by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He was charged by SEC for his involvement in promoting initial coin offerings (ICOs) and the DOJ charged him with “tax evasion and willful failure to file tax returns.”

After his death a number of conspiracy theories started showing up on social media and forums that said he allegedly activated a dead man’s switch. McAfee told people on many occasions that he would never take his own life and that if he was found dead by suicide it really meant he was “whacked.” McAfee had the word “whackd” tattooed to his body and he also released an ERC20-based token called “whackd (WHACKD).” The smart contract was called “Epstein,” and a number of theories stemming from several Q Anon members and 4chan posts attempted to connect the dots.

Tech Entrepreneur’s Widow Still Believes ‘John McAfee Did Not Kill Himself’

Janice McAfee, the anti-virus software tycoon’s widow, doesn’t believe her husband committed suicide, and the family’s attorney Javier Villalba told the press that Janice wanted an independent second autopsy after Spanish authorities completed the official autopsy. The second autopsy had not yet been granted and a local judge denied the request. While McAfee’s remains still rest in the Spanish morgue, the family has appealed the Spanish high court judge’s decision as Janice believes the official autopsy was incomplete.

“It’s difficult to put into words what life has been like this past year,” McAfee’s widow Janice explained on Thursday. On her Twitter page, Janice genannt: “One year ago today John McAfee was stolen from us. [He was] a champion of freedom [und] privacy, the world is a much darker place without him.” One of Janice’s hashtags in the tweet also said “#johnmcafeedidnotkillhimself.”

A judge in Spain further ruled that until the independent autopsy appeal is complete, McAfee’s corpse cannot be delivered to the family. Catalonia’s court officials did not respond to comments about the situation, but a Spanish justice department official said that it was unusual for bodies to be kept in a morgue for so long.
