Vice magazine claims to be traveling with McAfee


A crew from Vice posted photos this morning reported to be of on-the-run former tech pioneer John McAfee and his 20-year-old girlfriend from Belize, Sam, meeting with a lawyer in Guatemala City. McAfee has been avoiding authorities in his adopted country of Belize who want to talk to him about a murder. McAfee says it's a set-up and he has been taunting Belize officials and the media with blog reports from hiding. Vice began posting recently that it was accompanying McAfee and was with him across the border in Guatemala.
