John McAfee, who founded the global software company which carries his name, is wanted for questioning after the body of retired builder Gregory Faull was found at a house on the island of Ambergris Caye on Sunday (11Nov12).
McAfee has now reportedly gone into hiding, but he has spoken to Wired magazine to deny he had any involvement in his neighbour's death.
When asked whether he knows anything about the case, he replied, "Nothing - other than I heard he had been shot. I thought maybe they (whoever killed him) were coming for me. They mistook him for me. They got the wrong house. He's dead. They killed him. It spooked me out."
Police in Belize have described McAfee as a "person of interest" and not a suspect, with Raphael Martinez, a spokesman for Belize's Ministry of National Security, saying, "We are following several leads. He lives nearby and is associated with this person so he's just wanted for routine questioning."
McAfee moved to Belize in 2008.
Love wanted to shoot in the tourist hotspot for a scene in his upcoming crime drama The Sweeney, but authorities in London turned down his request amid fears the noise of gunfire would cause chaos.
He overcame their concerns by vowing to use pioneering new 'noiseless' blank bullets utilised in training exercises by the British armed forces - and officials eventually gave permission to film after Johnson applied some bureaucratic pressure.
Love reveals Johnson is a huge fan of the original 1970s TV series on which the movie is based, and he's adamant without the London Mayor's help, the plan to shoot in Trafalgar Square would have been dropped.
He tells British magazine Live, "I always wanted this film to have a gunfight in Trafalgar Square. The authorities said flat-out no, because of the noise... But, by chance, we heard about a blank bullet that fires without sound.
"Most blank rounds used in movies create the flash for the camera and the bang for the sound recordist. But I heard from the MOD (Ministry of Defence) that they've recently started using UTM Silent Blanks, a new type of cartridge which cycles the weapon as real, explosive bullets do, but makes very little noise... The only thing we had to add in afterwards was the sound of gunfire...
"It turns out that Boris Johnson is a massive Sweeney fan. He made it happen. It's amazing how many doors open to you when you say it's The Sweeney."
Chris Marker, the award-winning filmmaker behind the monumental 1962 short film La Jetée, has died at the age of 91, reports The Washington Post. The artist's death was confirmed by France’s Culture Ministry.The journalist-turned-photographer's career spanned over 50 years, Marker continuing to work well into his 80s. Over the 20th century, the filmmaker dabbled in narrative, documentary, and essay film, blending the styles and sensibilities of all three into standout works like the mesmerizing Sans Soleil, the meditative profile of Akira Kurosowa, A.K., and his much-acclaimed photo roman (a film created using only still photos), La Jetée. The time travel short was the inspiration for Terry Gilliam's Bruce Willis/Brad Pitt feature 12 Monkeys.
Provoked by the evoking medium of filmmaking, Marker continued to push the limits of the medium with digital technology, 1996's Level 5 and 1998's Immemory, the latte being an interactive CD-ROM experience.
Highly regarded by critics and cineastes, Marker's work will continue to be received and resonate with mass audiences, as a staple of the experimental film movement and keystone to the Criterion Collection's preservation of his work. Watch both La Jetée and Sans Soleil now on Hulu.

The former Baywatch beauty paid a visit to the Ministry of Economics on behalf of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in a bid to meet Philipp Rosler and persuade him to fight an attempt by officials from the World Trade Organization to re-introduce the seal skin trade to the continent.
However, Rosler was not present and Anderson was forced to leave the campaign documents with the politician's representatives.
Anderson has been a leading voice in the battle to stop the slaying of baby harp seals for their furs, and she previously celebrated after Russian officials bowed to international pressure to ban the import of seal pelts from her native Canada.
Prince Harry, known as Captain Wales in his professional military capacity, was also handed an award at a special dinner after he was judged the best co-pilot gunner out of more than 20 newly-qualified flyers.
A statement from the Ministry of Defense reads, "The award handed to Captain Wales consists of a polished 30mm (millimetre) round from an Apache cannon mounted on a stand."
The royal completed a tough 18-month training programme to qualify, and now sources tell Britain's Daily Telegraph he will return to Afghanistan, where he spent 10 weeks serving as a forward air controller between 2007 and 2008.
Government officials have reportedly told Golshifteh Farahani she's no longer welcome in Iran after posing naked in French news magazine Madame Le Figaro.
Based in Paris, the actress left Iran last year (11) and now she can't go back after the nude protest against restrictive Islamic dress codes for women.
She says, "I was told by a Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guide official that Iran does not need any actors or artists. You may offer your artistic services somewhere else."
Farahani stars in Best Foreign Film Oscar favourite A Separation.
The Batman Begins star hit the headlines last week (ends16Dec11) after making an eight-hour car journey from Beijing to visit blind human rights campaigner Chen Guangcheng with a CNN news team.
The group was stopped at a checkpoint near the village of Dongshigu, where Bale and the camera crew were harassed by plain-clothed officers and turned away.
In video footage of the incident, Bale can be heard asking through a translator, "Why can I not visit this man?" as the guards attempted to grab the team's cameras.
The actor then returned to his vehicle to leave, but the authorities refused to let him out of their sight and pursued him in a van for more than half an hour.
During the chase, Bale explains his motivation for the visit, insisting, "What I really wanted to do was to meet the man, shake his hand and say what an inspiration he is.
"I'm not brave doing this. The local people who are standing up to the authorities, who are visiting Chen and his family and getting beaten or detained, I want to support them..."
The Chinese government has now addressed Bale's complaints, with Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin attacking the actor for overstepping his welcome.
Asked by reporters if China's leader was embarrassed by the bad publicity, Liu claimed it should be Bale who is red-faced because he was only invited to the country by director Zhang Yimou to promote their new movie, The Flowers of War.
Liu said, "He was not invited to create a story or shoot film in a certain village. I think if you want to make up news in China, you will not be welcome here."
Chen, who has campaigned against government-ordered sterilisation and abortion, has been detained in his home for the past 15 months.
Public prosecutor Jean-Michel Cailleau confirms the case has been officially closed after the Danish filmmaker was charged in August (11) with "justifying war crimes" by joking about his German ancestry at the event.
Von Trier faced a maximum five-year jail sentence, but Cailleau has made his recommendation to the French Ministry of Justice that the charges should be dropped.
Cailleau tells the Hollywood Reporter, "There was no intention on the part of Mr. Von Trier to commit the act of 'justifying war crimes'. He expressed himself in a language that wasn't his own and also under very stressful circumstances."
Von Trier was declared persona non grata at the festival, where he was promoting his latest movie Melancholia.
He told reporters, "I found out I was actually a Nazi. My family was German... which gave me some pleasure. I understand Hitler. He certainly did some wrong things, but I can imagine him sitting in his bunker toward the end... Now how can I get out of this sentence. OK, I'm a Nazi."
Cameras stopped rolling on the Toronto set in the early hours of Tuesday when a wheeled platform inside the Cinespace Film Studios crashed to the ground, injuring 12 actors dressed as zombies and four members of the production team.
Emergency services were called to the scene, although they had trouble establishing how badly the actors had been hurt due to the fake bandages and blood they were covered with for their roles as the undead for the forthcoming fifth installment of the Resident Evil film franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ten of the victims were taken to a local hospital for further treatment, although none of the injuries are considered life-threatening, according to police reports.
The sci-fi movie's star Milla Jovovich was not onset at the time of the accident, which TMZ.com claims is now being investigated by officials from the Toronto Police Department and the Ministry of Labor.
