John McAfee is offering more than $12,500 to anyone who can provide information in the murder of Gregory Faull, a case in which McAfee himself is wanted for questioning. The antivirus pioneer, who has been in hiding since Nov. 11, tells a Dateline reporter that he's now at home in Belize. But he says "he does not have any intention of giving himself up, not now, not ever," NBC correspondent Keith Morrison tells the San Pedro Sun.

"He is fixated on the notion that the police and the political establishment of the police are unbelievably corrupted and there is nothing he can do except stay in hiding," Morrison notes. Meanwhile, McAfee has launched a blog that he says will keep updating even "if I am captured ... I have pre-written enough material to keep this blog alive for at least a year." The blog, whose first post appeared this weekend, offers a first-person account of McAfee's experience "on the run," including details of his "investigations" and "disguises". ("I stuffed a shaved down tampon deep into my right nostril and died the tip dark brown—giving my nose an awkward, lopsided, disgusting appearance"). Click through for more.
