John McAfee, the anti-virus software company founder wanted by police in Belize investigating his neighbour's murder, has crossed into Guatemala to seek political asylum.

Footage of the technology millionaire apparently chronicling his life as a fugitive has been posted on YouTube.

McAfee is seen apparently phoning the authorities with fake tips on his whereabouts and approaching a security checkpoint.

McAfee was in hiding for three weeks before appearing in Guatemala yesterday. He has said he is "absolutely innocent" of the shooting death of businessman Gregory Faull.
