Software king McAfee, on the run after neighbour dies, 'could return to UK'

McAfee: Oh for a normal life McAfee: Oh for a normal life

British-born software company founder John McAfee , held in a Guatemalan detention centre , has said he wants to return to the United States and "settle down to whatever is a normal life".

But intriguingly in an internet broadcast, he also hinted he might return to England . After saying returning to the U.S. was his "only hope now," he added, "I would be happy to go to England, I have dual citizenship."

Police in neighboring Belize, a former British colony, want to question McAfee, who is 67, over the killing of an American neighbour who lived near his home in Belize .

McAfee went on the run after Belize officials tried to question him about the killing of Gregory Viant Faull, shot in early November.

McAfee has said his dogs were bothersome and that Faull had complained about them but he denies killing him .

McAfee, now fighting a government order that he be returned to Belize, said i\n the broadcast, "I simply would like to live comfortably day by day, fish, swim, enjoy my declining years."

The creator of the McAfee antivirus programme said of a possible return to Belize, "I cannot ever return to Belize ... There is no hope for my life if I am ever returned to Belize. If I am returned,bad things will clearly happen to me."

McAfee sold his stake in the software company named after him in the early 1990s and moved to Belize about three years ago .

He told The New York Times in 2009 that he had lost all but $4 million of his $100 million fortune in the U.S. financial crisis.
