John McAfee, founder of the anti-virus company that bears his name, has revealed a number of the disguises he is using to evade police, who want him for questioning about the murder of his neighbour.

John McAfee, founder of the anti-virus company that bears his name, has revealed a number of the disguises he is using to evade police, who want him for questioning about the murder of his neighbour.

 
McAfee wrote on his blog that he has been dressing up as a Guatemalan street seller, using shoe polish to darken the colour of his skin, browning his teeth, and stuffing his face with chewed bubble gum to make his face look fatter. He said he also stuffed a shaved down tampon into his right nostril and dyed the tip brown to give his nose an “awkward, lopsided, disgusting appearance.”
 
McAfee also donned different, ragged attire and adjusted his posture to look shorter. He used broken English with a Spanish accent to fool tourists and reporters. He even claims to have almost sold a dolphin carving to a journalist from the Associated Press.
 
Not one to stick to the same routine, McAfee also pretended to be a drunk German tourist, who yelled vulgar things at passers-by. He wore bandages on his face, which seems like a lot less work than the Guatemalan disguise.

Apparently not what John McAfee looks like now
 
Yet for the all the hassle he claims he has gone through to stop police, who he thinks will kill him, from finding him, he decided to blog all the details for everyone to see. And all of this despite telling The Telegraph previously that revealing any of his disguises would be “foolish.”
 
It might be that McAfee never did any of this and is hoping to effectively make everyone a suspect, since he could be disguised as anyone, or it might just be that he is, as Belize's Prime Minister described, “bonkers.” He certainly seems to be revelling in the attention he is getting, despite the seriousness of the allegations made against him.
 
McAfee is offering $25,000 to anyone who catches the killer of his neighbour and plans to publish any information he gets on his blog. In the mean time we can probably expect to see updates about the other exaggerated diguises he has up his sleeve.
