Security stalwart John McAfee is now in the US following his exit from Belize and subsequent deportation from Guatemala.
The McAfee founder said late Wednesday evening that he was on a plane en route to Miami and would soon be joined by his girlfriend and another woman.
Speaking to reporters after his arrival in the US, McAfee said that he had "nothing to do" with the November murder of his neighbour Gregory Faull in Belize, the incident which triggered his flight from government authorities and ultimately led to his arrival in Miami.
McAfee said that the killing of Faull was part of a conspiracy by the police and government in the Central American country, which began last April when his house was raided as part of a drugs investigation.
Police have not issued a warrant for McAfee or charged him with Faull's murder, but the 67-year-old technology pioneer is being sought for a police interview in the case. McAfee has claimed numerous times that authorities would kill him if he were brought into custody.
McAfee claims to have evidence of widespread government corruption in Belize including audio which he says implicates police and government of plotting against him. After a short time on the run, McAfee entered Guatemala where he was held in immigration charges and briefly hospitalised.
According to an ABC news report, McAfee admitted to faking a heart attack in order to get out of jail and expedite his removal to the US and prevent a return to Belize.
