A quick & positive update

Mcafee joshua davis picture

Over the past few weeks several readers of this blog have questioned the future of whoismcafee.com, and have wanted to know the reasons for my absence. I have not disappeared, nor is my blog going away, I have just been extremely busy travelling, dealing with personal affairs and contributing to the official projects regarding my life. It has been a long but fun process, and I feel blessed to have surrounded myself with an

extremely talented and honest team of individuals ­ all of whom I consider my friends. I am confident that each of you that have been following my story will find the final results to be worthwhile.

As for Sam and Amy, they are safe and we are all eager to be reunited in a peaceful environment. It has been a long ride, and we are looking forward to a new and positive chapter in our lives. In order to accomplish that, however, we must go trough a long and bureaucratic process. It is very time consuming, but it is worth every second.

In addition, I am not ignoring those that write to me. I receive an extremely large amount of requests to expose, help fix, and donate to a growing list of issues in Belize – one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I considered Belize my home for many years, and have let behind beautiful memories and friends, which saddens me deeply. I can only wish
the best for its future and those that still call it home.

I have exposed a lot of corruption in Belize, simply because my past situation allowed me to do so. Moving forward, I encourage the people of Belize to continue their fight for a better future – one without corruption, and without violence. I have paved part of the road, so please move forward in pursuit of your dreams my dear friends.

Over the next few weeks, the design and management team of this blog will begin developing a new platform. TRUST ME, it will a fun, informative and quite a bit more interactive. Through this change, please rest assures that the existing blog will remain in place, along with all comments. Unless its necessary, I will be absent until the new platform
goes live.

    Yeah comments are landing funny again. And taking a loooong time to hit when they do. You would figure with as little comments going on these days it would not take long for them to be posted by admin. Do you guys not have it set up to email you or notify you in some way when there is a comment on the blog? Might want to do that. Been almost a month since this last post. It time for something else. And something more than a message saying please hold on a bit longer. Starting to get worried your not going to complete the story. Or are you saving all the good stuff for the movie? Did you sell the rest of the story already and not able to post here any longer or you would be in breach of contract? If that’s the case just tell us. We would understand. Would be nice to hear something. Also why is it that a multitude of my post never make it? Seems comments are being filtered like crazy now. whats the deal?

    John, Wish you’d give us an update on your medical products research company, Quorumex. Quorum sensing sounds like a good way to defeat all manner of human diseases. Right now I’m being treated by a product at my hospital that is based on Manuka honey from New Zealand called Medihoney, which defeats all the bacteria and other nasty organisms that have become resistant to anti-biotics. No one knows the exact way Manuka honey works, although there are various theories out there. I am beginning to believe that there are components in Manuka honey that communicate with the human immune system but that is pure conjecture on my part and based on Manuka honey’s tendency to heal wounds without leaving a scar.

    But I’m not too interested in your exploits based on your testosterone supplements. I’m too old for all that and never did find the younger women as interesting as I found the older, wiser, and more knowledgeable women in my life.

    But please give us an update on your Quorum Sensing research or at least let us know if the company is an ongoing concern, My interest was piqued in this subject when I was introduced to Manuka honey healing technology, something produced not by man but by hives of bees.

    Looking forward to seeing a new post from john. Hopefully is will be soon. Even just a another quick post to let us know he is still alive and kicking would suit me fine for now. Maybe you can answer a few questions we all have. Making progress on the movie? When should we be expecting The Hinterlands? When should we expect this overhaul on the blog? Are you still alive and kicking? Hope all is well with you. Also you guys can click on my name if you like to visit my new blog. Its a blog on Government and Police corruption.

    wim followers,
    Have you seen the new ‘Wanted’ posters that Sandwillow made? Pretty funny.

    The study of Philology, a term coined? by Richard Bentley of 18th century England. The ‘history’ of it all. Thought I’d share…..

    Watson is a patronymic surname meaning “son of Watt.” The popular Middle English given names Wat or Watt were pet forms of the name Walter, meaning “ruler of the army.” From the elements wald, meaning rule, and heri, meaning army.



    When one inverses el numero ocho what does one get? The symbol of infinity.
    Send in A-gent triple 8 as referred in a certain Bond flick. King James Bond?

    A ‘king’ as in a human or that of the unseen realm of which lies just out of reach of temporal existance? “Riddle me with a fiddle of kindness”.

    Our-O-Borus…..as in the concept Of.

    Isn’t that special? The whole comment here:
    Thanks ! 😉

  22. sandwillow Avatar

    Well, silly?
    I might be at times but Watson you’re the one that does all the work and gets very little credit. No one wrote a book, a screenplay, or a BBC series about Watson.
    So, who is Watson?

  23. SL Avatar

    The “John” I am referring to is Dr. John Watson. Follow the link of Watson’s name. It goes to a BBC series of a modern day Sherlock Holmes. I was NOT referring to John McAfee. I also did not say he was posting as stash, that was someone else 😉
    John told us he was Harold, I did not speculate on this blog as to whether or not he was.
    You have me confused with someone else who thinks that John comes on here and posts under many different monikers. Personally I think John will post as John. He only did Harold because he was posting in secret. And Harold was an admin on the blog.

    So, if you think Sherlock aka stash is John aka Harold , then whoe the he11 is Watson?

    And John, dig the photo you uploaded with this entry as a response to a previous commenter’s request for something like it. Was the metaphor intentional? If it was, I agree! Either can be used to destroy a life and often, both are.

  27. JungleJenny Avatar

    Chris, I read about your brother’s story yesterday when I was catching up on John’s. I live in the states and I have been talking to everyone I know about what’s happened to both men because almost no one here has heard (poor and/or nonexistant press coverage). My heart pains for your whole family. They have denied you access to basic material facts about Jeffrey’s demise, and have overtly insulted our collective intelligence with their admittedly callous and negligent treatment of an innocent man who came to volunteer in their country. Through their words and actions they continue to injure your family without hesitation. Even if the official story were 100% accurate, Jeff would likely have needed medical attention if he had actually been as intoxicated as they assumed he was. The lack of empathy, professionalism and decency they displayed shows just what kind of arrogance you are up against. Please find a great family therapist to help your whole family stay sane, healthy and strong enough to fight for justice. You all will be in my thoughts and conversations. May your family be blessed with the peace that heals you, in time.

    A few interesting stories from Belize.
    Guy with 5 passports mysteriously disappears from police custody:
    Crime is up…..WOW, big surprise…..smh
    2 young men shot by police.
    A quote from victims aunt: “I don’t understand how there can be a police shootout and you get two of them in the back of their heads. I don’t understand that. The kids were running; the two young men were running away.”
    When Belize? When? How many more young people have to die or become incarcerated for turning to crime, the only option they see in your corrupt, police-state, repressed ‘Jewel’? Your window of opportunity is closing quickly, with every piece of the pie being stolen right out from under your noses. STAND UP AND DEMAND BETTER, BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE. PLEASE.

    What a story. Tired of deceptive mousetraps – aren’t you?

  35. Connie Avatar

    Welcome Chris, glad you found us. I am sorry for your loss. Your brothers story was posted on this board for us to read when it happened. I commented on how unbelieveably sad about what happened to him. Many commented that there was definately a cover up. I have been to Belize and drove past that jail. It is a horrible place (just from the outside). There are many stories about unfair treatment of non-belongers in Belize. We have posted many on this board. The one story that I learned about while in Belize, that haunted me at night, was about Miriam Simi in Sittee River. According to the expats there, it was a big cover up. The other story that bothered me was about American business woman, Suzan Boutz. She was arrested and spent time in the jail where your brother died. Then of course, I found John’s story which I have followed since the very beginning. These are just a few of many stories of corruption in Belize. I hope you find the answers you seek. Peace be with you.

  36. Chris Furgala Avatar

    Thank you everyone so much for your support. It is very healing to me personally to know there are others out there who are aware and understand exactly what is going on in this country. This has become more than just about the loss of my brother. It is now about doing the right thing and what ever I can do to help expose this type of corruption in hopes of preventing this type of inhumane treatment from happening to any one else ever again. I will see you on the other blog.

  37. SL Avatar


    Welcome. Many of us read about your brother with great sorrow. We know that Belize has issues. John has tried to shine a light on them. You of all people can understand why he ran when he did.

    As WEB says, come join us on the other blog as well.There are many people who are ready and willing to help.Don’t be discouraged if John does not reply right away. He has been very busy with his projects.
    And again, welcome…. you are among friends 🙂

  38. WEB Avatar

    Hi Chris,
    We all read the horror story about your brother with great sadness. You’re right, there is a cover up…..what happened to Jeffrey is nothing short of criminal. I’m very sorry for your loss.
    The posts in this blog provide John’s twisted tale, and now, you’ve unfortunately lived through one yourself. Belize is corrupt from top to bottom, and the higher up they are, the less likely repercussions for their actions will ever occur. Whoismcafee is an in depth read, and contains links to many stories, posted by the readers.
    Once you’ve finished here, I would like you to come to ‘our blog’. I say our because it was started for us, the wim readers when it seemed JM was gone. He wasn’t. 🙂
    In addition to keeping up with John, we are also discussing Belize, and ways to make a difference (especially education/young peeps). All of us have been shocked by the people’s resistance to stand up for themselves, too. We would love to have you join us, to work towards your goal. It doesn’t take away from JM’s blog, but adds to the conversation, with a little silliness on the side. We’re all still very present here.
    I think you find the links at the top of the home page especially informative. Under the Belize section you will find many articles presenting evidence of authorities out of control. Hopefully you will find something that could help facilitate your quest.
    Once you’re on whereismcafeeandwhoisweb, please feel free to ask questions, or for help.
    Your brother was a fellow Canadian, and I’ll do whatever possible to assist you in finding answers.

  39. Chris Furgala Avatar

    Hello John

    My brother a Canadian citizen died in Belize 6 weeks ago while in police custody. I lead my own personal investigation for two weeks until I felt my own safety was compromised and had to leave the country. Clearly there is a cover up. I have discovered your story and I am writing to you for any guidance that you may have to offer after surviving your experience in Belize. My goal is to create awareness in hopes this will stop happening, to make Belize a better place where people are not afraid to stand up for themselves and speak out against corruption. My brothers name was Jeffrey Donald Furgala age 35.

    Not sure there is a managment team. I know this site was handed over to someone to manage but they are doing a piss poor job. I know not many people are commenting these days which plays into it also. But is kinda like when you go to a restaurant that is not busy thinking because they have little to do you will end up getting faster service. But you end up waiting an hour to get your appetizer. Think allot of people got discouraged by the kink of the flow by the long wait in moderation and post less. Hopefully this talk of big changes to the blog will include some solutions to this flow killer.

    Certainly in a ‘determined’ world (freewill vs. determinism) would imply a fore-gone conclusion.

    We really need to do away with this hours of moderation somehow. This bottle necks the comment section tremendously. Can we not change it so we can create an account and admins can pre-approve certain people to comment and only new posters get moderated? There is no reason for everyone to be filtered. Not sure if this would be an easy change. If it is I suggest this be one of the first things to be changed and soon. “Your comment is awaiting moderation” screeching us to a halt way too often.

  51. Connie Avatar

    Fun might have not been the best choice for words, however, I believe JM was speaking of his life and current endeavors. As stated ad infinium on this board, it is not about a murder. Since JM had nothing to do with the murder then why would he dwell on it? He could very well be negative about the press, the government of Belize, and some of you on this board, but instead he chooses to take the higher road. A quality I so admire.

    it is good to hear things are going well for you. As it has been a few weeks since your last blog post, perhaps you could give us an update on the following:

    1. What is the status of your remaining staff in Belize? Are they continuing to be harassed by the government there, or have things died down?

    2. What is the current status of your remaining dogs in Belize? Is there any chance of them being transported to Portland? I imagine they must miss you tremendously, and I am sure the feeling is reciprocal.

    3. Is there any further news on the death of your former neighbor, Mr. Faull? I can’t recall hearing a single update on the progress of the murder investigation, and I find it very suspicious that the Belizean government hasn’t made a peep at all. Surely they have ballistics reports by now. What do you think they might be hiding?

    I agree. The media is corruptions right hand man. I sitll don’t understand why CNN’s Web site is CNN.COM rather than CNN.Gov. They have a long history of fake stories and being paid by abusive alpha dogs to report or not to report and how to report. As well as many other media outlets. But it has become a collective acceptance by the majority of people to not think and let the media think for them. It is one of the most dangerous tools of man kind. Tell a big enough lie and tell it often and eventually to the listeners it will be the truth. Media fed perception is poison of the mind. The movie Natural born killers come to mind. As well as Wag the dog and a few others. But I did hear on the news somewhere that the best source of information is the mass media………

    If and when we meet again on this blog, will depend on our continued interest in
    ” Who is Mcafee?” and Why do we care?
    Who are we, in relationship to
    “Who is McAfee” ?
    and if it holds any purpose or value in our own ….life and times .

    We tied our tails to you “kite wing” and you took us on an exciting ride. It was but a brief moment in time.
    The well being of you and those you hold most dear were our concern and our prayer .
