uthorities in Belize are searching for anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee, who went into hiding three days ago when police arrived at his house to question him about the murder of his neighbor, an American expatriate named Gregory Faull. The men had quarreled about the barking of McAfee's dogs, four of which were found poisoned last week at McAfee's beachside compound. Two days later, Faull was found dead, shot in the back of he head, in his villa. McAfee says local authorities are trying to frame him, and will torture a confession out of him. "You can say I'm paranoid about it," he said in a phone call to Wired magazine from hiding, "but they will kill me, there is no question."
