Crypto Icon John McAfee’s Body Still in Spanish Morgue a Year After Death

One year after John McAfee was discovered dead in his jail cell, his corpse remains in a Spanish morgue.

Reuters report that according to officials and McAfee’s attorney, a year after the software entrepreneur John McAfee passed away, his corpse is still held in a Spanish mortuary. This is because a court lawsuit that was filed by his family to require more checks has not yet been settled.

The results of the post-mortem indicated that he had committed suicide; however, McAfee’s wife insisted that he was not suicidal and that she would look for explanations. The conclusions were contested by his family, but their request for more investigations was turned down.

And despite the fact that McAfee’s family members filed an appeal against this judgment, a court ultimately decided that his corpse could not be sent to his family until the outcome of the appeal was determined.

It took the Spanish authorities eleven months to issue a death certificate and decide what should be done with his remains due to the glacial speed at which they proceeded while making their judgment. It seems that his remains are still being held in storage close to Barcelona for the time being.

The authorities hinted early on this year that a definitive verdict on the status of McAfee’s remains would come this year after Janice McAfee, John’s wife, challenged the decision made in February by a Spanish court that found that McAfee’s death was a suicide. The judge had concluded that McAfee’s death was the result of a suicide.

Lawyers representing John McAfee’s daughter and ex-wife have been attempting to get the release of their client’s remains for the better part of a year. The preliminary findings of the autopsy pointed to suicide as the cause of his death, and a Spanish court agreed with those findings.

Janice McAfee stated she only saw John’s head at the morgue after his death. She stated a covering covered his body. She says John was killed in a jail near Barcelona after being captured by Spanish officials on a U.S. extradition request.


Mcafee was wanted in the USA for multiple crimes that made him leave the US years ago and was wandering in different countries of the world.

Mcafee was caught in Spain, As the trial began Spanish court ordered Mcafee’s extradition to the United States on tax evasion charges at the request of the US.

He was discovered dead in his jail cell on June 23 of last year, just hours after Spain’s supreme court authorized his extradition to the United States. McAfee released the world’s first commercial anti-virus software in 1987.

Moments after McAfee committed suicide in a Spanish prison, there have been numerous twists surrounding his death from his ex-wife and daughter.

Despite sources stating that McAfee committed suicide in a Spanish prison, Janice McAfee blamed the United States government for his death saying:
