John McAfee initially attempted to kill himself back in February, several months before his death that officials also reported as a suicide.
His alleged failed suicide attempt resulted in him being supervised closely, a source within the penitentiary system told Reuters Friday.
McAfee said multiple times on social media that, should he die in the Spanish prison, it would not be because of suicide and that authorities would be responsible.
Getting subtle messages from U.S. officials saying, in effect: "We're coming for you McAfee! We're going to kill yourself". I got a tattoo today just in case. If I suicide myself, I didn't. I was whackd. Check my right arm.$WHACKD available only on https://t.co/HdSEYi9krq:) pic.twitter.com/rJ0Vi2Hpjj— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) November 30, 2019
