Murder suspect and tech entrepreneur John McAfee was arrested by Guatemalan police on Wednesday, according to Mauricio Lopez Bonilla, the country's interior minister.

McAfee was arrested for illegally entering Guatemala, after he entered the country to escape Belizean authorities, Reuters reports. Now a fugitive, McAfee is the prime suspect in the murder of Gregory Faull, an American expat who was shot in San Pedro Town, Belize last month.

While on the run, McAfee started a blog called "The Hinterland," which details his experience hiding from police.

McAfee founded his eponymous anti-virus software company in the late 1980s, but retired in 1994.
