Is Anti-Virus John McAfee in Guatemala?

Gawker reports disapprovingly on "tits-and-drugs rag Vice" accidentally revealing the location of on-the-run John McAfee, the 67-year-old founder of the antivirus company, who has been in hiding since his neighbour was murdered last month.
Vice Editor-In-Chief Rocco Castoro accampanied an article on McAfee with an iPhone photo that included GPS data. The data pinpointed their location near the Guatemala / Belize border. But before the any squat teams were launched, the dastardly genius that is McAfee had this to say: "I, for my own safety, manipulated the xif data on the image taken from my cellphone, and created a fake emergency so that the urgency of movement led, as I knew it would, to the hasty posting on their website." A statement which makes him sound even more like the Brain from Pinky and the Brain than he did before.
