Oddball software pioneer John McAfee has said he's disguised himself as he continues to hide from Belize police officials, RadarOnline.com reports.

The co-founder of McAfee anti-virus software, who is on the run after becoming the 'person of interest' in the murder of his next-door neighbor, called up a reporter at Wired magazine (once again) claiming he has dyed his hair, eyebrows, beard and mustache jet black.

"I’ve modified my appearance in a radical fashion," McAfee told Wired. "I’ll probably look like a murderer, unfortunately."

As previously reported, McAfee, 67, is the prime suspect in the murder of American expatriate Gregory Faull – McAfee’s next-door neighbor on Ambergis Caye, an island off the coast of Belize.

According to a police report, Faull, 52, was found dead in a pool of blood early Sunday by a housekeeper. His laptop and iPhone were both stolen.

Before that, Faull had complained about the barking of McAfee's dogs – he kept 11 at his beachside compound – and four of those dogs were poisoned last Friday.

When police officers arrived at McAfee's property to question him and search the home on Sunday afternoon, he buried himself in the sand and covered his head with a cardboard box! He told Wired he spent 18 hours hiding in his home before slipping away.

He has been running from the cops ever since, riding in boats, huddling on floorboards in taxis, sleeping in a bed that he said was infested with lice.

McAfee says he's innocent and is adamant that if he gives himself up, he'll be either tortured or killed by local authorities.

But he fears that the police will plant incriminating evidence unrelated to Faull's murder – just to convict him.

"The police have been to my house seven times," he said. "I expect them to uncover a cache of fully automatic weapons, four tons of cocaine. Maybe a Soviet submarine."

In the meantime, cops have detained one of McAfee’s bodyguards, William Mulligan, his groundskeeper, Cassian Chavaria, and a local taxi driver, Cesar Trapp in an attempt to put pressure on McAfee to give himself up.

"This is exactly what happened to Soviet dissidents when Stalin took power. If they could not catch the man himself, they rounded up all of his friends," an outraged McAfee said.
