Antivirus pioneer John McAfee, who is on the run from Belize police as a prime suspect in a murder over the weekend, has defended his innocence in a rambling audio interview with Wired.

McAfee revealed he’s been hiding out at a secret location, sleeping on a mattress infested with lice and under cars in a bid to escape being found. But, as the police hunt continues, McAfee says his capture by authorities is “just a matter of time,” convinced “they will kill me if they find me.”

On Sunday Belize police raided McAfee’s home on Ambergris Caye, an island off the coast of Belize, to question the former engineer over the homicide, but he could not be found. McAfee later told Wired’s Joshua Davis that he was at the property at the time, having buried himself in sand with a cardboard box over his head.

McAfee claims to knows nothing about Faull’s murder, except to say that he suspects the killers were actually looking for him.
