John McAfee was found dead following the Spanish National Court ruled in favor of extraditing John McAfee, the founder of the McAfee antivirus software, to the US over tax-related criminal charges that were filed by prosecutors in Tennessee.

Officials with the Justice Department in Catalonia confirmed on Wednesday that John McAfee was found dead inside his jail cell, hours after the Spanish High Court ruled in favor of extraditing him to the US.

Sources with knowledge of the development told local outlet El Periodico that McAfee had committed suicide, and that prison staff attempted to resuscitate McAfee without success.

Authorities with the department have indicated that signs suggest McAfee died as a result of suicide, but that an investigation into the incident is presently ongoing.
