Twitchy told you yesterday about the bizarre murder case involving anti-virus software king John McAfee in Belize.

He is now on the run from police — and Wired reporter Joshua Davis has been in contact with McAfee since last night.

This morning, Davis live-tweeted breaking news of McAfee’s continued attempt to evade arrest.

The end? We’re staying wired to Davis’s Twitter feed for the latest. News at the speed of tweet.

***

Update:

The plot thickens.

In September of this year, McAfee published a diary in three parts of his recent “adventures” in Belize on a private message board, where he described how his life had been transformed—and according to McAfee, threatened—over the last two years by corruption in government both local and national, as well as his taking on of a personal harem of local women. One woman, “Amber Smith,” according to McAfee, was an assassin. He called the story “Darkness Falls.”

What follows is a thoroughly bizarre, rambling mess born out of McAfee’s “unstable mind.” McAfee is most definitely a very disturbed man.

Update:

Joshua Davis has resumed communication with McAfee:

According to Davis, McAfee is claiming to have taken some drastic measures to evade capture:

Update, Wednesday, Nov. 14:

More this morning on McAfee’s disguise and the detention of his friends:

            Dude all you have to do today is leave your cell phone on and they can track you!

          • torpedoman2002

            Turn you GPS off and they can only get a rough idea through triangulation. Not 100% that way. I’ve had to explain that to many customers who bought phones without GPS. They complained they were at their kitchen table and their GPS showed them 1 or 2 blocks away.

          • 57Bootsy

            This might be dumb, but could somebody be tracked thru GPS on the smart phone?

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            yes

          • richard

            Yes, but only if you keep your “location” turned on. For privacy, you can turn this feature off.

          • ConservativeAmerican

            Google “triggerfish” you may be surprised.

          • torpedoman2002

            As long as your phone is broadcasting its GPS yes. Turn your GPS off then they can only use the towers and triangulation

          • Zane Henry

            That’s precisely why you can’t turn GPS completely off on your cell phone. One setting makes GPS info available to applications on your phone, and the other limits GPS info to be used only by emergency services (Police, etc.) If your phone is powered on, it can be tracked. Some say it can even be tracked if the phone is powered off, until the battery is physically removed. Another reason more and more phones are using non-removable batteries.

        • Jake Davidson

          um, no. They might be able to overhear the call but unless the network provider for the journalists phone played ball they couldn’t track it. (aside from breaking into his home and installing software on his device.)

        • PatThe Rat

          This is happening in Belize, you do realize. These are people who are lucky enough to have a phone, much less the equipment to trace one. Just because you have your 30 Obamaphones doesn’t mean the rest of the world does too.

          • David Mowers

            George Bush expanded the phone access program to include cell phones, try reading actual history some time.

          What software is he using now that he can’t use on a Mac? Most of you people who say “you can’t get software for the Mac” have never used one. Every app I use, including very heavy duty 3D animation apps, is available on Mac. And it doesn’t crash constantly or get virus infections either.

          • maxonepercent

            OK,:

            – Specialist and bespoke applications for use in business. Apple’s focus is more towards the home consumer, creative, and educational markets. The business market however, is the overwhelming domain of Microsoft and Windows. That is their focus. Therefore, with Macs not as extensively deployed into the corporate world, many specialist business applications are not developed, or less developed for Mac OS X.

            – Games. Despite Apple’s focus of the Mac into the home market, games is one area of common home usage that the Mac platform is lagging behind in. Native Mac OS X games are much less numerous than for Windows, and new releases that are ported to the Mac, tend to be much delayed and not well optimised.

            Yes, there are games for Macs. If you look in the right places. And that place is not on the sheves of high street games retail stores.

            But granted, simply put, when the Mac’s gaming range is lined up alongside that available for Windows or the various games consoles, it is dwarfed! Top titles will always appear on more popular formats first, whereas if a Mac version appears at all, it will usually be much later.

            Few games get developed for Macs because games developers know games players don’t buy Macs. And games players don’t buy Macs because they know there are few games developed for it. Catch 22.

            – Niche applications. Ones whose use is so specialised, it simply isn’t worth the development costs to support anything beyond the most widely used platform.

            – Drivers or custom interfaces for consumer devices or peripherals that are not interfaced in a standard way, e.g. some mobile phones or MP3/media players. There may be some manufacturers who consider software development across multiple platforms, not cost effective for all their products. Particularly if those products are not big sellers.

            – Applications that rely of proprietary technologies; usually pertaining to web based applications. Anything whose development relied on proprietary Microsoft standards to run, rather than platform agnostic and/or industry standards, will usually be limited to Microsoft’s own Windows platform. Thankfully, this is quite uncommon nowadays.

            Really? A new PC every 3 years? What kind of software are you running where you need a completely new computer every 3 years? I think not my friend. Upgrade the video card every 4 or 5 years (Which really isnt even necessary) a process that you can do yourself very quickly and easily. Maybe increase the RAM, again, something you can do yourself quickly and easily. Can you say the same for a Mac? I have not had a virus in years but then again I am also careful what sites I go to and use an antivirus, you know common sense precautions.

          • itookredpill

            Invest in an education dipshit, read it again. I am a Mac owner, so my computer is almost 10 years old and I’m still running all the latest software, windows 7 and OSX lion. I was referring to everybody ELSE I know with a PC who replaces it about every 3-4 years. Yes Mac is more expensive out of the box, but what’s the lifetime cost of ownership compared to a system that required constant upgrades and monthly antivirus software subscription. Enjoy your Blue Screen of Doom though.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/R6XYTCDVDGFHASKEBIA6PLXNIU Brian Ward

            No need to get personal, jackass, and people wonder why Mac users are seen as snobs. Questions them and get insulted. What I meant was what kind of software is “everyone else I know” running where they need a new PC every 3 – 4 years? Or are they the same kind of people who need to have the newest “thing” be it a new iphone or Android phone or tablet or w/e the “in thing” is every year because it has a single new feature. “Requires constant upgrades”? Havent upgraded my PC is since I bought it almost 5 years and it still plays everything I want it to with no issues. Do you have the ability to crack open your Mac and change anything inside it you want w/o voiding the warranty? No, I thought not. Ever heard of AVG? Its antivirus software, doesn’t cost a dime. You know what, I was going to close this with a snarky little closer but lets just agree to disagree and say that Macs and PC’s have their uses and both have their fair share of fanboys and leave it at that.

            ~Edit~ So I was looking over your previous posts and was wondering do you have a 10 year old Mac that runs everything or an Intel Mac (which came out about 6 years ago) that runs everything? You seem to be saying both or are you just pointing out that Intel made some Mac components?

          • itookredpill

            And now we have come around full circle. No, I haven’t heard of AVG, because I NEVER have to think about getting a virus. There is nothing I have found that I can’t run on my computer, be it pc or Mac. I guess I think the long life and flexibility is worth the extra money.

      This has nothing to do with a third world government stealing from rich people, he murdered somebody and is providing assistance to drug gangs.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jimbo-Limbo/100001077841771 Jimbo Limbo

      Belize in not a dictatorship, it is a constitutional monarchy with a parliament. Queen Elizabeth II is the head of state, and the Prime Minister is the head of the government. Dr. Colville N. Young, Sr., serves as the Governor General, and stands in for QEII in matters of governance.

      To sum it up: Belize is no more a dictatorship than the UK is.

      Belize is a really good tax shelter that deliberately does business AS a tax shelter. It is not in their interest to just arrest people for the crime of killing their neighbor (by shooting him in the head), in a way to somehow get money. Holding a man in jail under murder charges doesn’t really earn them a lot of cash.

      They wouldn’t be known as one of the top 15 or so tax shelters in the world, if they routinely used “kangaroo courts” to take people’s money away.

      They would much rather have McAfee’s neighbor still alive, and McAfee still spending his money in Belize. The best way to get money from rich people who want to avoid taxes, for Belize, is to let them live there and do as they please (except murder their neighbor). To get them to start Belizean corporations (it takes 2-3 days), and spend their money in legal, mutually beneficial ways, through banking and financial services. DUH.

      Did you absorb some of that?

    “Stalin era tactics” to arrest people who help a fugitive from the law while he is on the run? Even if you are the head of a big software security company, that doesn’t give you carte blanche concerning the law of a small paradise island, at least not when you stand accused of killing your neighbor by shooting a bullet into his brain.

    • Paul__Revere

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jimbo-Limbo/100001077841771 Jimbo Limbo

        No sir. These people KNEW he was a fugitive from the law and aided him in slipping away. The laws in the US are absolutely the same on this. IF YOU helped your brother get out of town, after he killed his neighbor, then YOU would get arrested. Pay attention to what is said, and stop making things up.

        • Paul__Revere

          Odd, I don’t remember A.C. Cowlings being brought up on charges for driving OJ around, or any of his housekeepers or his bungalo tenant. Who is making things up here?

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jimbo-Limbo/100001077841771 Jimbo Limbo

            Here we go, again: AC COWLINGS WAS ARRESTED for the felony of aiding a fugitive, and released on $250,000 bail.

            A court case was never brought against Cowlings, in part because of his claim that OJ had held a gun on him during the drive. Look it up on the internet. Google: A C Cowlings felony arrest. Here, since you may have difficulty with this type of search:

            http://books.google.com/books?id=NxR5FFDMZZwC&pg=PA50&lpg=PA50&dq=ac+cowlings+felony+arrest&source=bl&ots=lO1Tbzagc7&sig=vgf1POAYP6csbjizxDsgNSonE5I&hl=en&sa=X&ei=7_miUI6OJpLOyAGUroHQAw&ved=0CDsQ6AEwAzgK#v=onepage&q=ac%20cowlings%20felony%20arrest&f=false

            (see page 50 in the top middle, re: Cowlings arrest)

            Even if you HAD been correct, each case is an individual case. Sighting one example (particularly in such a badly handled LA celebrity case as the OJ case) does not make a generalization true.

            There are laws, however, in these United States of America, AGAINST aiding and abetting a fugitive. If you think there are not, you are not just making things up, you are ignorant.

            Frequently, when those who aid and abet the fugitive give that fugitive up, then all charges are dropped. This does not change the fact that it is illegal, and that arrests ARE made in the US. Thank you for playing, and enjoy the rest of your day.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jimbo-Limbo/100001077841771 Jimbo Limbo

            Here’s one that’s more recent for you, in Oregon. 8 people are arrested for helping a fugitive, “avoid arrest by giving him aid, shelter, transportation, money and warning of his impending arrest.”

            http://www.kezi.com/eight-arrested-for-helping-fugitive/

            So again, an arrest is not proof of guilt, or even charges, or a conviction, but it is not “Stalin era tactics.” For those who are accused of helping someone on the run, arrests happen ALL OVER THE WORLD, ALL THE TIME.

            This is normal practice, all over the place.

            This has nothing to do with Joseph Stalin, and the horrible crimes he committed against humanity.

          • Paul__Revere

            Actually Stalin took “guilt-by-association” to quite extreme levels. Until someone shows me how being employed by someone automatically makes you complicit in their actions, much less actively aiding/abetting them, I would say “Stalin era tactics” is a fitting term.

          • Paul__Revere

            Fantastic, now please provide your evidence that these employees of a man fleeing law enforcement (presumed innocent?) directly aided him in escape as opposed to guilt-by-association.

            Also you assume a great deal when I make reference to a highly publicized instance that I explicitly said “I don’t remember”…and I will point out that ultimately Mr Cowlings is a free man, and therefore found in the eyes of the law to be not guilty of any wrongdoing…despite what the world witnessed live on televised video feed.

            So let’s try not to be so knee-jerk “Stalin-esque” when we go around convicting people willy nilly based on what the “media” tells us is fact, especially given their absolutely pathetic track record on relaying factual information. This should be doubly important in this era where far too much life-affecting decision-making seems to be driven by “public opinion” to which there really is no such thing, there is only “PUBLISHED opinion”.

            Lives are routinely ruined with such loose and reckless behavior.
