After complaining of chest pains and being rushed to a hospital in Guatemala City, Guatemala on Thursday afternoon, retired antivirus company founder turned murder suspect John McAfee has since been given a clean bill of health and sent back to a detention cell, ABC News reported late Thursday. As the report explains:
In a phone interview overnight, McAfee told ABC News, "I simply passed out, everything went black."
He said he hit his head on the floor when he collapsed. McAfee explained that for the past 48 hours he hasn't eaten and had very little to drink.
McAfee, who is being held in the country allegedly for illegal entry, fled to Guatemala in early December from neighboring Belize, where McAfee has since November 11 been sought by authorities for questioning in the gun murder of a man described as his neighbor. McAfee has lived in Belize since 2008, where has reportedly been attempting to impose his own brand of vigilante justice and prosperity on a local village near his home, according to Wired reporter Joshua Davis, who spent time with McAfee over the summer.
