John McAfee, you know, the founder of McAfee Anti-Virus? He's been on the run from Belize after his neighbor turned up dead and Belize wanted him for questioning. He managed to flee Belize and escape to neighboring Guatemala, whereupon he met with authorities. The authorities originally indicated that he would be turned back over to Belize.

However, as of Wednesday evening, McAfee had boarded a plane headed for Miami, Florida, which happens to be in the opposite direction of Belize. Guatemala has deported McAfee back to the United States as that his country of origin--he is American, after all. His lawyers blocked the Guatemalan attempt to send him to Belize.

 

"I'm happy to be going home," McAfee told reporters shortly before his departure Wednesday afternoon. "I've been running through jungles and rivers and oceans and I think I need to rest for a while. And I've been in jail for seven days."
