American antivirus software creator John McAfee has been found dead in his cell in a Spanish prison near Barcelona hours after a court approved his extradition to the United States.
The U.S. government had been seeking McAfee's extradition for charges including failing to submit tax returns from 2014 to 2018 and allegedly not reporting income related to pushing crypto projects and consulting work. McAfee was arrested last October and has long maintained that the tax evasion charges were motivated by politics.
