The official autopsy on the body of John McAfee showed he committed suicide in the Spanish prison cell where he was awaiting extradition to the United States, El Pais newspaper said on Monday, citing unidentified sources close to the proceedings.
Sofware mogul McAfee was found hanged in his cell on Wednesday by prison wardens in what appeared to be a suicide, his lawyer said last week.
His lawyer Javier Villalba said on Friday that McAfee's widow Janice had asked him to request a second, independent autopsy once the results of the first were released.
“His last words to me were, ‘I love you and I will call you in the evening,'” Janice McAfee told reporters outside the Brians 2 penitentiary north-west of Barcelona where she recovered her late husband’s belongings.
“Those words are not words of somebody who is suicidal,” she added in her first public remarks since the software entrepreneur’s death on Wednesday.
