John McAfee, the Belize-based murder suspect and one of the first computer programmers to design an anti-virus software and to develop a virus scanner, confessed to be a "huge fan" of MDVP, also known as "bath salts" — reported Radar Online.
McAfee, who co-founded the legendary McAfee virus software, supposedly spent a whole year trying to "purify" the synthetic psychoactive drug — which is usually made from a mix of legal and illegal substances available over the counter and through the internet.
The millionaire entrepreneur-gone-bad allegedly posted several anonymous messages on a drug-themed, Russian-hosted message board called Bluelight (where the eccentric and wild former geek described his attempts to create a "super perv powder" under the bizarre user name of "stuffmonger").
The 67-year-old, protagonist of an American Dream gone terribly wrong, admitted testing the substance, by such unorthodox methods as rectal inception. In one post, he wrote: "I’m a huge fan of MDPV. I think it's the finest drug ever conceived, not just for the indescribable hypersexuality, but also for the smooth euphoria and mild comedown."
McAfee is a prime suspect in the murder of American expatriate Gregory Faull, a builder from Florida who was shot at his home in San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye, according to Fox News.
Bath salts first surfaced online, and in pop culture, after a Miami man -- believed to be under the influence of the drug — attacked and cannibalized his victim during Labor Day Weekend.
