As per reports, he died due to an apparent suicide, after a Spanish Court approved his extradition to the US over multiple fraud charges.

McAfee was arrested last October after a case was registered against him for failing to file four years of tax returns.

McAfee was the founder of McAfee Antivirus and a pioneer in the cybersecurity industry.

According to an Associated Press report, Nishay Sanan, the Chicago-based attorney defending him on those cases, said by phone that McAfee “will always be remembered as a fighter.”
