John McAfee—man, millionaire, and former murder suspect—is tweeting his way through Spanish jail as he awaits possible extradition to the US on charges of tax evasion.
The father of the eponymous antivirus software and the PT Barnum-like promoter of head-scratcher crypto tokens, reported today, “Know that if I hang myself, a la Epstein, it will be no fault of mine.”
Jeffrey Epstein was a multimillionaire finance magnate charged with sex trafficking who was found hanging in a New York City jail cell. So, good imagery!
Epstein’s arrest and subsequent death has been the subject of much conspiracy talk; it spawned the now infamous “Epstein didn’t kill himself” meme—or, as Wired phrased it, the “meme-ing of conspiracy.”
