Antivirus software entrepreneur John McAfee has been found dead in his prison cell after the National Court approved his extradition to the US.
Officials said his body was discovered at the Brians 2 prison near Barcelona, where staff tried to resuscitate him, however their actions were not successful.
Prosecutors in the US state of Tennessee had charged the 75-year-old with evading taxes after allegedly failing to report income made from promoting cryptocurrencies while he did consultancy work.
The entrepreneur was arrested at Barcelona’s El Prat airport in October 2020, whilst boarding a flight to Turkey.
