Well, that's not cool...

One of the wilder reality shows on the internet isn't getting renewed for another season, apparently, because its larger (and crazier) than life one-man cast is dead.
"John McAfee, the controversial antivirus software magnate who'd had multiple recent run-ins with the US law, has died at 75. McAfee was awaiting extradition in a Spanish prison after being charged with tax evasion in the United States last year.

McAfee was found dead in his cell in a prison near Barcelona on Wednesday around 1 p.m. ET and a medical examiner is on the scene, a spokeswoman for the Superior Court of Catalonia told CNN. She said the cause of death is under investigation.

How long before this gets plugged into the universal adaptor of conspiracy theories, Qanon, and the story gets absorbed into that ever morphing and expanding LARP?

ETA: Basically where I'm at, too...
