A billionaire who is known in New Mexico is now wanted for questioning for a murder in Belize.

Police believe John McAfee shot and killed a neighbor on an island off Belize on Saturday.

Several years ago, McAfee built a ranch in Hidalgo County, spending about $11.5 million to build it.

He later sold it for about one-tenth of that.

McAfee made his money by founding McAfee - a computer anti-virus program widely used in PCs.
