John McAfee Says He Is Safe In Guatemala, Plans Press ConferenceBy: Chris Crum - December 4, 2012
John McAfee says he has made it safely to Guatemala, and will be meeting with officials in that country. He plans on doing a press conference. In the latest post on his blog, McAfee writes:
I apologize for all of the misdirections over the past few days. It was not easy to exit Belize and required many supporters in many countries. I am in Guatemala and will be meeting with Guatemalan officials this morning. If all goes well I will do a press conference tomorrow.
Vice Magazine reporters are indeed with me in Guatemala. Yesterday was chaotic due to the accidental release of my exact co-ordinates by an unseasoned technician at Vice headquarters. We made it to safety in spite of this handicap. I had to cancel numerous interviews with the press yesterday because of this and I apologize to all of those affected.
Vice had posted an image (pictured) under the title, “We are with John McAfee right now, suckers,” and the location data were found in the metadata.
In case you haven’t been following, McAfee is wanted by authorities in Belize for questioning in connection with the murder of his neighbor. He has been in hiding for weeks now. More backstory here.
