Software mogul John McAfee has been released from detention in Guatemala City and has landed in Miami.
Immediately upon landing, according to passengers on the plane, McAfee's name was called and he was whisked off the aircraft. Federal officials escorted the 67-year-old Internet antivirus pioneer through customs spirit him out a side door, out of the view of reporters, according to Miami International Airport's communication director, Greg Chin.
It was not clear whether officials intended to help McAfee avoid the inevitable media circus or wanted to question him. However, he has not been charged with committing a crime in Guatemala or Belize, where the authorities have sought to question him about the murder of his neighbor.
McAfee's departure from Guatemala came earlier today.
"They took me out of my cell and put me on a freaking airplane," he told ABC News. "I had no choice in the matter."
McAfee said, however, that Guatemalan authorities had been "nice" and that his exit from the Central American country was "not at all" unpleasant.
Odd, they automatically update this story everyday.
