At the time of this writing, there’s no other confirmation of his death or the reasons for it, though both Spanish outlets quote the Department of Justice.
Meanwhile, reports indicate, on several occasions, that McAfee committed suicide.
It’s worth noting that the news of his death started circling on the same day Reuters reported that Spain’s High Court approved the extradition order of the entrepreneur to the United States.
McAfee was charged with tax evasion, which he has been rather vocal about in the past.
Separately, he was also charged by the US SEC for fraudulently promoting initial coin offerings.
