John McAfee’s wife publicly stated that the US wanted her husband to “die in prison” - three days before he was found dead in his cell. 

Janice McAfee made such a statement on Sunday while her husband was in Spanish jail pending his extradition to the US. The US charged him with tax evasion fraud.

“John’s honesty has often gotten him in trouble with corrupt governments and corrupt government officials because of his outspoken nature and his refusal to be extorted, intimidated, or silenced,” Janice said.

“Now the US authorities are determined to have John die in prison to make an example of him for speaking out against the corruption within their government agencies,” Janice added.

McAfee was found hanged in his cell and his death was deemed a suicide by Spanish authorities.

Janice complained in her message: “Before you were innocent until proven guilty but somehow that has changed to guilty until proven innocent”.

Many people express condolences for Janice for her tragic loss.
