Eccentric antivirus software company founder John McAfee was found dead of a suspected suicide in his prison cell in Barcelona, Spain, on Wednesday, shortly after that country’s National Court approved his extradition to the United States to face criminal tax evasion charges, his lawyers said. The Spanish newspaper El Mundo first reported that the Catalan Justice Department had said McAfee, 75, died within hours of the extradition ruling. Barcelona is in the Catalonia region of Spain. McAfee’s lawyer in Spain told Reuters that the McAfee Associates founder apparently hanged himself.
