Gutfeld mulls ‘suspicious’ death of John McAfee: He claimed charges were ‘politically motivated’

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld sat down with a guest panel on Thursday to discuss the mysterious and suspicious death of software mogul John McAfee who was found dead in a Spanish prison cell outside of Barcelona on Wednesday.

Authorities are claiming McAfee committed suicide before being extradited to the United States on tax evasion charges. His widow is now demanding a “thorough investigation” of his death, claiming that he did not sound suicidal when she last spoke to him. McAfee stated before his death that he was not despondent and that if he died, he was “whacked” by someone.

Gutfeld opened up his segment quipping his suspicions over McAfee’s strange proclaimed death: “He’s no longer with us and it’s kind of suspicious. So, should we really be saying R.I.P. to John McAfee? The legendary eccentric tech entrepreneur was found dead in his prison cell outside Barcelona in what authorities are calling an apparent suicide. No word on whether the authority who said this is named Hillary Clinton.”

“McAfee, who made his fortune creating McAfee anti-virus software, was being charged with tax evasion. And just hours before his death a Spanish court had approved his extradition back to the U.S. which could explain the surprising suicide. Maybe they were planning to fly him back on Spirit Airlines. Now, I trust everything the media says with every cell in my body. But what if there was more to this story? The circumstances surrounding McAfee’s death are so fishy, they came with a side of chips and tarter sauce,” Gutfeld snarked.

“He spoke for years about being a hunted man and that the charges against him were politically motivated. After what happened to Jeffrey Epstein in his prison cell, would it really be surprising to learn that McAfee didn’t kill himself? Could he have faked his own death? Leave it to a brilliant, jet-setting bitcoin mogul to pull it off. Now, for legal reasons, I’m not saying he’s still alive or that he was murdered. I’ll let Kat do that. But it’s like Steve Doocey used to say when we’d go camping, ‘If there’s no body, there’s no crime,'” the conservative comic noted.

Gutfeld then turned to guest Kat Timpf for her take on McAfee’s death. She claimed that he was a fascinating guy in a class by himself: “I bummed a cigarette from this guy at the Libertarian Convention in 2016. We talked for fifteen minutes and it was truly… like I’ve been bored every second of my life compared to that. No offense. But this guy… people have this thing. Most people have this thing in their brains where they think a little before they talk. He… not even the slightest bit. What some call tax evasion, he said, ‘I’m just running from these people trying to steal from me.’ He was like, ‘I don’t believe in taxes.’ So, nothing would surprise me when it comes to this guy. I mean, he was truly… did not care. You can’t judge him among a standard of what humans are like because he’s nothing like that.”

Mike Baker, who is a former CIA officer, gave his two cents-worth next. He believes that McAfee could have committed suicide or could have been murdered. He said McAfee, who was 75, was slipping into paranoia, his health was diminishing, and he was fearful of returning to the states since he owed more than $4 million in back taxes.

Another to posit a theory was actor Walter Kim who believes that McAfee went nuts, got depressed, and killed himself. That is was the end of the road for the software tycoon.

But Abby Hornacek of Fox Nation is suspicious of his death because he claimed that if he died it would not be suicide and he got a “whacked” tattoo on his arm before he died. Kim pointed out that if you wanted fame after death, that would be the way to do it.

The final determination concerning McAfee’s death will be made by an official autopsy, according to a Department of Justice official.
