QANON fans are now convinced John McAfee's computer was activated in the wake of his death to "reveal the NSA is spying on Tucker Carlson."
Online conspiracy theorists made the bold claim after the Fox News host accused Joe Biden's National Security Agency of spying on him to try to take his show off the air.
When asked to "guess the identity of the NSA whistleblower" Telegram user Jonn Doss wrote: "McAfee makes the most sense.
"He is spying on the spies."
Another, Nancy Coleman, said: "McAfee would make sense…or someone who has one of his kill switches."
According to Newsweek, Telegram user Jeffrey Lightwell added: "McAfee makes a lot of sense. The Killswitch fired."
Carlson claims that his team has "confirmed" with a government whistleblower that the NSA is spying on him, calling the revelation "scary."
He made the claim during his show on Monday night, saying the agency is spying on his electronic communications and "planning to leak them in an attempt to take his show off the air."
The outspoken host didn't offer much evidence aside from the unidentified whistleblower.
He insisted that there was "no other possible" way the NSA could have the information they have.
"Spying on opposition journalists is incompatible with democracy," Carlson said.
He accused the NSA of capturing information that was available only through his own texts, and doing it for "political reasons."
Prison wardens found the body of software mogul McAfee hanging in his cell on Wednesday in what appeared to be a suicide, something that was later confirmed in the coroner's report, obtained by local paper El Pais.
QAnon fans had already speculated that he activated a so called "dead man's switch" to expose the government.
Prominent QAnon supporters say the mysterious "Q" post shared to McAfee's Instagram minutes after his death in jail may indicate a hidden encryption.
The tech mogul's death was reported just hours after Spain’s National Court approved his extradition to the US, where he was wanted on tax-related criminal charges that carried a prison sentence of up to 30 years.
McAfee once claimed that if he was ever discovered dead by suicide that he did not kill himself.
