A Netflix documentary on anti-virus mogul John McAfee has alleged he may have murdered his own dad.

After making millions from his computer protection software, called McAfee, he was wanted on suspicion of murder in 2012 when his neighbour, Gregory Faull, was shot dead in Belize.

Bizarrely, McAfee then invited two journalists from VICE to join him ‘on the run’ in Guatemala, which is the subject of the documentary, Running With the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee.

The picture features a ghost writer by the name of Alex Cody Foster, hired by McAfee to write a book on his life, who spoke of a ‘particularly troubling anecdote’ about McAfee’s father, who had apparently died by suicide while he was still a teenager.

In a recording captured by Foster, McAfee is allegedly heard saying: “I do want to change the world. I want my children and grandchildren and your children to have a better world than we had, where we do have some love.

“And there is some humanity – that the world that I lived in, growing up with a father who broke my arms and abused me to the point that it was intolerable, abused by mother… until the point that I did something about it.”

Foster, shocked, then says: “Woah. I never remembered that. I didn’t know he said that. Holy s***.

“I feel like that was an admission right there.”

He continued: “I started developing a theory. So I posed it one day to Jimmy, he was John’s executive advisor.

“I said, ‘Jimmy, what about John’s dad?’ He was like, ‘What about him?’.

“I said, ‘I have this weird feeling, Jimmy, that John shot him’.

“And Jimmy looked at me, and he had this crazy look in his eyes. He was like, ‘How the f**k did you know that?’.

“And I said, ‘I didn’t, but now I do’.

“Jimmy told me that John confided in him that he shot his father when he was a teenager. He’d killed him and made it looked like a suicide.

“This is a dangerous man, he’s hurt a lot of people.”

Last year, McAfee was found dead in his Barcelona prison cell shortly after Spanish authorities authorised his extradition to the US
