Just before the antivirus tycoon John McAfee was found dead in Spain, he told the public from prison that U.S. federal authorities seized all of his assets and he had “nothing.” Now a biographer who is writing a McAfee-based biography has corroborated McAfee’s story.

In 1987, John McAfee wrote the first commercial-grade antivirus software and by 1994 he sold his stake in the company and resigned. By 2007, reports show that McAfee’s net wealth peaked at $100 million but allegedly his funds quickly evaporated in the 2008 financial crisis.
