>>> ever since that november day greg faull's body was hauled away on a pickup truck. his house on ambergris caye was left just as he left it, one man's paradise lost .
>> he said dad, i'm laying in the hammock looking over the caribbean. the sun's coming up and i've never been happier in my life.
>> understandably, greg faull's friends and family wanted to know who killed him and why.
>> he was brutally, cowardly murdered and i don't know exactly what happened, but i would like to see some justice done somewhere.
>> but for week withes all art faull and roseanne heard about was the one-man media circus that was john mcafee . the wealthy american ex-pate rat who was avoiding contact.
>> i had calls from cbs, msnbc, nbc, fox, cnn, "the new york times" and "the wall street journal " in two days.
>> it was questions about this other fellow and he's making a circus and it's, like, excuse me. you're asking me the wrong question. ask me about our loss.
>> that seemed almost to be secondary. like it was lost in the shuffle.
>> it was lost in the shuffle and greg was pushed off to one side because it was the mcafee circus.
>> no doubt mcafee was good copy. tamara sniffin knew that wasn't the only reason the media seemed to be ignoring the greg faull murder investigation.
>> the only thing that's been released -- officially released is the cause of death of mr. faull.
>> the single gunshot wound.
>> no word on whether they're done the ballisticses test, though.
>> with police not talking with john mcafee not talking with police, rumor was all there was. and for a few days there were no new headlines. all quiet on the mcafee front.
>> and then just about the time the whole bizarre saga began to disappear from public consciousness, john mcafee popped up again and the media gaggle descended. this time in the nice country over, in the middle of guatemala city , guatemala . why here? well, a couple of very practical reasons. some of them about family and some international politics and because of that the story got even stranger.
>> for weeks we'd heard only his disembodied voice had heard pictures of the tattooed mcafee and now here he was finally in the fresh, looking practically funeralin his suit and black dye job. according to mcafee 's 20-year-old companion samantha veneg venegas, they tried to elude the police. while they chased after cell phones he left around his estate, they were actually hiding in belize city under the very noses of the people who were searching for them.
>> he knows what he's doing and then he turned his phone on and said, you know what? they're going to track us down. leave the phone there and people really thought he was there.
>> because his cell phone was there on the island.
>> because they were tracking it.
>> occasionally said sam, they stepped outside under bushes during nights on the lam, but mostly they stayed in hotels.
>> did he disguise himself.
>> he pretended he was a crippled guy, hunched over, glasses.
>> no one ever recognized him.
>> no one ever recognized him.
>> she never once doubted mcafee 's innocence because on the night of greg faull's murder, she said, she and mcafee were watching movies at home with his former lover amy and her new boyfriend.
>> was john there with you?
>> he was with me in the room. people saw it. you can ask everyone who was working for john on that day. they will will tell you the same thing i'm telling you. they finally escaped to guatemala , she told us, in part because she had a relative there who could be helpful.
>> i said i have an uncle who is a lawyer and he's a pretty good lawyer and you can ask anyone here in guatemala .
>> sam's uncle has represented some of the biggest names like former strongman manuel noriega , but when he tried to sell the idea to a judge about mcafee as a refugee it was immediately rejected. mcafee was taken into custody outside of his hotel on the grounds he had entered the country illegally. it looked like the jig was up. the next day, at the immigration center the big question was how long would it take for guatemalan authorities to send him back to belize and that's where the improbable story took a heart-stopping turn. within sight of the assembled cameras, john mcafee suddenly swooned and appeared to lose consciousness. as he was rushed out to a waiting ambulance, some wondered whether the stress of being a wanted man had gotten to john mcafee or if the world media was once again being manipulated bia master of misdirection.
>>> coming up -- nowhere left to hide. we sit down with john mcafee at last. will he answer the questions so many want to ask?
>> neither you nor anybody representing you went over to greg faull's house and shot him through the head?
>> when "trouble in paradise" continues.
>>> for a month after the murder of greg faull it was not he, but all of the axe tension.
>> he's wanted for
