What Wall Street Can Learn From The Anti-Virus Software Guy Wanted For Murder

Most individuals working on Wall Street are good, honest people. But, as with every industry, you will always have your bad seeds. And should you perhaps wake up one morning to find the Feds outside your door, because your best friend sold you out by recording your explicit instructions re: how to dispose of evidence you committed securities fraud, or you were (allegedly) part of a "criminal club" that met regularly to share material non-public information with each other, or you bribed people with lobsters to do your bidding for you, and prison life is not the life for you and you need to come up with a hiding place they'll never find you, STAT, sand and a cardboard box are a good place to start.

John McAfee, the founder of the popular anti-virus software maker, is considered “a person of interest” in the murder of U.S. citizen Gregory Faull and has yet to be located, Belize National Security Ministry spokesman Raphael Martinez said. The two Americans, whose homes on the Belizean island of Ambergris Caye were separated by a few yards, had “some sort of conflict” which was thought to be linked to McAfee’s dogs, Martinez said in an interview today. Four of McAfee’s dogs were poisoned last weekend, Martinez said, and Faull, a 52-year-old contractor and Florida native, was found dead on Nov. 11, with a bullet wound in the back of his head. National police are continuing to search for McAfee, who Wired magazine reported is hiding within the Central American nation, citing a phone interview with the former entrepreneur.

McAfee, who founded the Santa Clara, California-based McAfee Inc. in 1989, buried himself in the sand with a cardboard box over his head when police arrived at his home on Nov. 11, according to the report by Wired. He remains in hiding because he believes he’ll be killed if he’s taken into custody for questioning, the story said.
