Max Spiers, 39, father of two boys, texted his mother just a few days before his death, saying “Your boy’s in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate.”
Days later, Spiers went to Warsaw, Poland to give a speech about conspiracy theories and UFO’s in June, and was mysteriously found dead lying on a sofa. Without any post-mortem examination being conducted, Polish authorities told his mother, Vanessa Bates, 63, that her son just died of “natural causes.”
According to the Mirror:
Originally from Canterbury, Max lived in America for a few years, but had returned to the city to stay with his mother, before jetting off to Poland.
Vanessa said: “He was making a name for himself in the world of conspiracy theorists and had been invited to speak at a conference in Poland in July. He was staying with a woman who he had not known for long and she told me how she found him dead on the sofa. But I think Max had been digging in some dark places and I fear that somebody wanted him dead.”
Max made a career out of investigating UFO sightings and alleged cover-ups. More recently, he was said to be probing into the lives of well-known figures in politics, business and entertainment. His unexplained death, and its subsequent treatment by the authorities, has left many online followers convinced he was killed by government agents.
Conspiracy theorists have long been convinced that UFO chasers who get too close to the truth are “bumped off” by the secret services or so-called men in black.
On one website, Project Camelot, a blogger wrote: “The entire circumstances are suspicious and I urge everyone to encourage the release of details about what really happened and call for an autopsy.”
Another, Craig Hewlett, added: “If it wasn’t true what he talks about then why would they kill him? Healthy people don’t just get sick and die, they get poisoned.”
Mum Vanessa, an English teacher, also buys into the theories. She said, “Max was a very fit man who was in good health and yet he apparently just died suddenly on a sofa. All I have is a death certificate from the Polish authorities that it was from natural causes, but no post-mortem was done so how can they tell that? They are also refusing to release any paperwork about it to me because, absurdly, I don’t have his written permission.”
Max was buried in Canterbury cemetery after his mother arranged to have his body flown home a week after his death.
His mother did order a post-mortem exam by a pathologist in east Kent, but no results have come from that after more than two month of waiting. She is suspicious that he may have been slowly poisoned.
According to The Mirror, the investigation is still in its “early stages.”
