John McAfee is dead. The entrepreneur, antivirus creator and founder of McAfee reportedly committed suicide in a prison cell in Barcelona, ​​Spain. His death occurred shortly after the Spanish National Court approved his extradition to the United States, where he was tried for tax evasion.

Prison guards reportedly found McAfee unconscious in his cell on Wednesday afternoon. It is also reported that medical personnel were unable to resuscitate him and he was subsequently pronounced dead. Authorities are currently investigating the circumstances of the incident, but Catalonia's justice ministry notes that all signs point to suicide.

John McAfee was 75 and he was arrested at Barcelona airport last October while boarding a flight to Turkey. The US Department of Justice accused him of allegedly making millions from promoting various digital currencies, consulting, speaking and selling the rights to his life story for a documentary.
