    There's a copy of the official police statement in the source as well, describing the crime scene.

    I guess McAfee made a virus itself.
    It's being hunted down by the cyberpolice
    (I tried)

    So when software is butchered, the fuzz couldn't care less, but when a person dies, well, suddenly everyone cares!

    I see how it is.

    Interesting. I wonder what's going to happen to the Macaffe anti-virus. I mean, when I update my Adobe Flash, it asks me to install that. I wonder if they're going to cut ties.

    Stock in the company will most likely fall faster than The Hindenburg on Jupiter.

    We've regressed to Hindenburg references now?

    Oh, the humanity...

    Who's the victim? Is there a motive?

    I don't like going through sources

    I was reading an article about this guy recently, on a gawker site...

    Apparently, he has (had?) a 17 year-old girlfriend, and a ton of guns...

    Did some quick research on the guy, apparently he was doing drugs so fucked up even Charlie Sheen wouldn't touch them.

    I'm sure they'll catch him soon; McAfee isn't renowned for running very well. (sorry, had to.)

    When I read the title I honestly thought it was going to be a joke. I guess not.
    Maybe his anti-virus software finally made him crash.

    So, an update of sorts from The Escapist...


    If he's telling the truth, the Belizean authorities must really hate McAffee Anti-Virus.

    I knew there was a reason I hated McAfee, this isn't it of course but it sure doesn't help the case.
    Horrible antivirus, horrible person, horrible.......the antivirus sucked okay!
