John McAfee Confirms That He Is In Guatemala

John McAfee is on the run.  You may know McAfee as being the founder of the McAfee anti-virus software that sold to Intel for $7.7 billion in 2010.  Last month we wrote about how McAfee is wanted for murder in Belize.  It turns out that he was able to escape the country and is now in Guatemala.  McAfee confirmed that he is there on his blog:

I apologize for all of the misdirections over the past few days.  It was not easy to exit Belize and required many supporters in many countries.  I am in Guatemala and will be meeting with Guatemalan officials this morning.  If all goes well I will do a press conference tomorrow.

Vice Magazine reporters are indeed with me in Guatemala.  Yesterday was chaotic due to the accidental release of my exact co-ordinates by an unseasoned technician at Vice headquarters.  We made it to safety in spite of this handicap.  I had to cancel numerous interviews with the press yesterday because of this and I apologize to all of those affected.

I will post more in two hours or so.
