Ambergris Caye, Belize is one of the most beautiful, most desirable, and most accessible islands in the Caribbean. It is consistently rated as one of the top 10 islands in the world to live on, and has been rated by Islands Magazine as the #1 island in the world to retire to.

But this week it is the scene of a domestic disturbance between two American expats, that has left one man, Gregory Faull, dead in his beachfront island home. Police in Belize have made local island resident, and combative neighbor, John McAfee (of McAfee Anti-Virus fame), the prime suspect and person of interest in the murder investigation. Mr. McAfee has gone on record as accusing the Belize police of trying to frame him for the murder, contending that they are out to get him and would sooner kill him than apprehend him for questioning. McAfee lives in a world filled with designer psycho-active drugs, heavily armed militia for his personal security force, and a bevy of young women to satisfy his sexual appetite. The Belize that McAfee lives in, the Belize of his world, is not the Belize that I have come to love and that I call home. I live on the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize and have one so for 7 years. I have fallen in love with the people of Belize, with the island and its culture, and with all its quirks and idiosyncracies. Mr. McAfee does not live in my world. He does not live in my Belize. I live in Belize by choice, as a guest in a foreign land. So does Mr. McAfee. If he feels that the government, the police force, and the Belize military are out to get him. I suggest that he lay off the bath salts and freely leave the country that has graciously allowed him to live as a resident for the last 4 years.

A man has been murdered, and his family members as well as our whole community are left to grieve in sorrow. We have a tremendous expat community on Ambergris Caye, one that is grieving over the loss of one of its own, and one that is sickened and disgusted by one man's insistence to drag the rest of the community into his perverted version of reality. I am not judging either guilt or innocence. Belize has a sound legal system baed on British Common Law for that.

The story has gone viral, and the whole world is waiting and watching to see what comes of developments in the murder investigation and the search and apprehension of John McAfee, of McAfee Anti-Virus infamy. This video is intended to show where the crime took place. Many clients, friends and colleagues have emailed from around the world to ask where these two neighbors lived, how close of proximity and what kind of setting or community they were part of. This video helps to answer those questions. But more importantly, it tells the real story. That there are two Belize's. The one that lives in McAfees delusional frame of mind, and the Belize that brought my wife and I here seven years ago to raise our three children. A Belize that affords my family and I the greatest quality of life we could dream of. It is "moving internationally with training wheels" and it has become our home.

In the trial of public opinion, don't persecute, or prosecute, the beautiful island of Ambergris Caye, Belize and its population of 20,000 kind and caring people, for the ranting and raving of one disillusioned expat resident.
