This Wednesday, August 24, it premieres on netflix the documentary ‘Running With the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee’where the rise and fall of the deceased businessman is told John McAfee.
And one of the testimonies on the tape is from the ex-girlfriend of the antivirus founder, Samantha Herrera, who assures that McAfee is alive.
“I don’t know if I should say it, but two weeks after his death I got a call from Texas: ‘It’s me, John. I paid people to pretend I was dead, but I’m not dead,'” declares the Belizean, who was McAfee’s girlfriend until 2012. She added that the businessman told her that “there are only three people in the world who know that he is still alive” and asked her to run away with him.
The woman too story that their relationship began when she was 18, but then McAfee decided to end their romance and married Janice Dyson.
For his part, the director of the documentary, Charlie Russell, is not convinced by Herrera’s words. “He says it, then he looks at the camera, and I don’t understand if he thinks it’s real or not. She is someone who was very angry with John. He promised her a life together and I think they were truly in love, despite the huge age difference, I think he offered her a really different future, but then he literally abandoned her at the border and I think this is very painful for her.” said in an interview with Esquire.
