A billionaire former New Mexico ranch owner remains on the run for murder, yet somehow he's found time to start a blog.

John McAfee is accused of killing his neighbor in Belize.

In a telephone interview with wired magazine last week, McAfee claimed police will kill him if he's found. He said he has changed his appearance while in hiding.

The eccentric billionaire's first blog post on the run accuses the media of sensationalizing his story and smearing his character. He also writes that people close to him are being detained and harassed by police in Belize.

McAfee used to own an $11 million ranch in Hidalgo County.

He made his fortune designing computer anti-virus software.
