Tech entrepreneur John McAfee was found dead on Wednesday in a prison cell near Barcelona hours after a Spanish court approved his extradition to the U.S. on tax evasion charges, according to a report.
The news of McAfee’s death was first reported by Spanish newspaper El Mundo. The U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment and referred FOX Business to Spanish authorities.
McAfee, 75, said at an extradition hearing earlier this month that the charges against him were politically motivated. He ran for U.S. president as a Libertarian candidate in 2016, coming in third in the party’s primary.
