However, very less people know about the person who actually created this software and earned millions from it.
The name that stands at the top of this software is john McAfee, who can be treated as one of the pioneers of the tech world. However, his name is always not seen with that much respect and that’s mainly because of the life he leads. There have been many theories that have proved him to be connected to many illegal activities and at the same time, the continuous legal cases and allegations he had to deal with, just added more to his life. Now this sudden interest in his life as we all know is because of the Netflix series which is based on one of his crucial interviews and the charges that were placed on him and he was on a run.
Now the biggest question that exists in our books, as well as the books of many people who have watched the show, or know about this man as a tech pioneer, is whether he is a murderer and he has killed his father, in the past. Though there have been no proven legal records regarding this statement properly, if we watch the series properly there are certain implications, and at the same time, the interview statements have also quite suggested the fact that he surely did something to his father that was connected to the so-called suicide of his father.
John McAfee Father’s Death

There were economic problems and at the same time, john as a child had to watch his mother get beaten up regularly which left quite a huge impact on him, and at the same time, he also didn’t get any exception from the physical abuse.
According to the reports, when john was quite young, his father committed suicide after shooting himself with a gun, and the case was closed with that. However when there were many other legal charges again john and he was on a run and asked two journalists to join him and take his interview, in which he mentioned his vision for a happy world, where every child could be safe and didn’t have to suffer from any kind of abuse, during that interview he also mentioned how his father used to subject him and his mother to physical abuse and that soon he had to deal with it in some way. Which was a big implication, that maybe he murdered his own father and it wasn’t actually a suicide.
