Computer software pioneer John McAfee, who is wanted for questioning in Belize over the murder of a fellow American, has arrived in Miami after being deported from Guatemala. Reporters caught up with McAfee at the Beacon Hotel. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JOHN MCAFEE SAYING: "I don't think anyone thinks I murdered my neighbor except for you in the press." McAfee had been held for a week in Guatemala, where he surfaced after evading police in Belize for nearly a month following the killing of American Gregory Faull, his neighbour. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JOHN MCAFEE SAYING: "They stopped the airplane before it reached the gate. They had everybody sit down and they said 'Is John McAfee on the plane, please come forward' and there were a whole bunch of officers and I thought geez this is continuing and they said, 'We're here to help you sir. Please come with us' and they whisked me away from you people." Police in Belize want to quiz McAfee as a "person of interest" in Faull's death, but say he is not a prime suspect. McAfee said he would be willing to talk to Belizean authorities if they came to him in Miami. He has denied any role in Faull's killing.
