John McAfee was found dead in a Spanish prison cell on Wednesday, but the letter “Q” was posted to his Instagram account hours after his death.
McAfee’s wife, Janice, is believed to have posted to his accounts for him while he was imprisoned — but it is currently unclear who has access or posted the cryptic “Q.”
The death of the 76-year-old outspoken political activist and anti-virus software pioneer is currently being reported as a suicide, however, he has frequently claimed that if he dies by suicide it was the government. Earlier in the day, Spain’s National Court approved a request for his extradition back to the US.
On Thursday John McAfee’s widow spoke to reporters. Janice McAfee blamed US authorities for his death.
Janice McAfee: “John McAfee was not suicidal. I spoke with him a few hours before he was found dead… I blame the US authorities for this tragedy. Because of these politically-motivated charges against him my husband is now dead. His last words to me were, “I love you and I will call you in the evening.” Those words are not words of someone who is suicidal. All ‘Jo’ wanted to do was spend his remaining years fishing and drinking. He did not deserve to die in a filthy prison like a caged animal… He would never quit this way. He would never take his life in this way. I don’t believe he did this and I will get answers.”
