>> it was, in the end, strangely reminiscent of a certain bronco chase with police in slow to have intimate knowledge of a homicide, however this chase would not end with an arrest. this woman was on that flight to miami with mcafee .
>> he was very calm and seemed just like a regular passenger. you would never know that that's who it was.
>> during the flight mcafee blogged that he and his young girlfriend samantha had been forcibly separated by guatemalan authority, but on the brighter side , it was announced mcafee had sold the bookend movie rights to his story and what a story it is. so based on earlier conversations with him, it seems that when mcafee the movie finally hits the big screen greg faull will barely be a footnote.
>> you want to make this about gregory faull, and that's tragic. no. i want to make it about what i perceive is a long list of actions attempting to make toe the line.
>> soon after the world's most famous person of interest landed in miami , he was back on the air.
>> john, thanks so much for joining us. you are in miami , aren't you?
>> i was just playing around with you. yes, i am in miami .
>> once again, he took the opportunity to change the subject from the murder of greg faull and explained his reasons for fleeing belize to avoid questions by homicide investigators.
>> what will you do if you were charged with this murder and the u.s. forces you to go back to belize , will you disappear? will you go to answer those charges?
>> i would certainly answer those charges, but there will be no charges, this is like every other charge they have leveled against me since april 30th . and running a meth lab and i will certainly answer any questions and if i am asked, i will answer therjs but it will not happen, sir.
>> john mcafee 's deportation from a detention cell to freedom in miami pointed one inescapable truth, the rich are not like the rest of us.
>> it doesn't make any sense at all if mcafee claims his inso sense and offers a reward for greg 's murder, why did he disappear and make a circus of this whole thing. i don't understand it, and i just wish someone would investigate it or -- or find someone who can talk about it and bring some justice somewhere.
>> back on belize 's ambergris caye , the ex-pats have been left starving for some sign the investigation into greg faull's murder is even active.
>> nobody said anything. they're not looking for anybody else as far as we know, why? we only know as much as you know or as much as everybody else knows.
>> and the one-sentence answer doesn't do with the murder of gregory faull, it doesn't really cut it.
>> it just seems like everything has just stopped.
>> not a word of news from the police said vivian yu and owners of the rojo lounge and in the absence of information they've been left to ponder what they do know.
>> people asked us if we think john did it, and i answered that by saying i don't know, and i don't want to speculate.
>> i hope not.
>> i know what i know and what i know is that he had a history with greg , and in bad judgment greg killed his dogs and less than 24 hours later, greg was murdered. it would be beneficial to be forthcoming.
>> john has made offers to talk to the police authorities by phone. that's not the way it works because there's a lot more to investigating than the words coming out of somebody's mouth.
>> for instance, alibis. we discovered john mcafee and his young companions have different stories about where they were the night of the murder. mcafee told us he was at home. his security guards patrolling outside, his girlfriend samantha inside with him every minute.
>> sam never left my side.
>> she was with you the entire day.
>> sam is the most jealous woman on the planet. if i go somewhere, she goes with me so i don't visit another woman. it's not actually happening, but this is in her head and the entire day. i like spending time with sam .
>> so she wasn't away from you at all on saturday?
>> not that i can remember, sir.
>> but samantha told us that's not true. she was out shopping at least part of that day with mcafee 's former lover amy .
>> so we went to town. she bought some clothes. i bought a perfume and then i went to buy fried chicken .
>> and that was on that saturday.
>> and though samantha claimed amy was with her and john the night of the murder amy told us she was on the other side of the island in the apartment she shares with her boyfriend.
>> anybody ever ask you where you were that night?
>> yeah. i was sleeping while that happened. there's no boat, no cars, nothing that would go all of the way up that north to take me up at that time of the hour at night.
>> could detectives have made some sense of it all? had they been able to question mcafee ? that time seems to have passed and now that they're safely back in the united states it appears increasingly unlikely that john mcafee would meet detectives in belize .
>> please's prime minister said that in the absence of any physical evidence tying mcafee or his associates for the murder of greg faull they will not be asking the u.s. to extradite him.
>> you can't seek to extradite someone merely because that person is of interest, merely because that person is needed for questioning. i believe extradition can only kick in if there are charges that have been leveled against the person you seek.
>> for his part, john mcafee tells us his offer to speak with belizean police on the phone or here in the u.s. still stands.
>> i would happy to be in any other country in the world except for belize and answer any questions they want today.
>> the belizeans tell us they don't intend to take him up on that. it should be noted that though greg faull has been dead for two months the belizean police said if the poison found in faull's house matched the poison found mcafee 's dogs, and if it matched the bullet or if there were any marks on greg 's body that would be consistent with a taser attack and john mcafee ? since he arrived back in the states, he told us, he's sold some of his belize property and at the moment is in portland, oregon, still making the media rounds.
>> i've been meeting with ghost writers and producers and various people up on the movie and book projects.
>> he still pops up on the internet from time to time, lobbying charges at the belizean government and faull, as you might imagine, now more than two months after his murder, greg faull's family is at their wit's end waiting for answers that may never come.
>> it almost feels hopeless because, you know, it's a foreign country , and i don't know their customs. i don't know anyone down there. i've just not -- i don't know how to handle it.
>> are you getting answers or any contact from them?
>> no, not anything from them at all, but i have gotten in touch with a senator. senator nelson and he said he was going look into the problem so we're waiting to see if we can put any pressure anywhere on the belizean government just to continue their investigation and find out who is responsible. i just don't know when it will happen or if it will happen, but -- --
>> but it's desperately important to know.
>> oh, yes. it's desperately important to know. his whole family is just terribly broken up. we all are.
>>> there will be a memorial service for greg faull will in florida tomorrow. his ashes will be scattered at sea.
