Joshua Davis has a trophy room. In an old storage space-cum-office below his flat in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco, Davis shows off his various accolades and tchotchkes. There is, for instance, the fourth-place medal he won in the U.S. National Armwrestling tournament, which put him on the road to competing in an international championship in Poland, where he became the 17th-ranked lightweight arm wrestler in the world. Davis has never actually won an arm wrestling contest.

Sunday morning, a housekeeper on a small island in Belize discovered her American employer dead in his beachfront home, lying face up in a pool of blood. As the Belize Police Department began interviewing neighbors of the victim, 52-year-old Gregory Faull, they noticed his next-door neighbor wasn't home. John McAfee, the founder of the anti-virus software company that bears his name, has not been seen or heard from since, police told The Times on Monday. But McAfee did contact someone: Wired magazine contributing editor Joshua Davis, who had spent months looking into reported friction between McAfee and the Belize government.
