Max Spiers had been speaking at a conference about UFO conspiracies before he passed away
A well-known British conspiracy theorist passed away in Poland after giving a talk about UFOs, just days after sending a message to his mother reading: “If anything happens to me, investigate.” Max Spiers, a 39-year-old father of two, was found dead sitting on a couch in an apartment in Warsaw, where authorities ruled he died of natural causes, despite not carrying out a post-mortem examination.
Spiers was considered one of the leading figures in truther subcultures, known as a ‘supersoldier’ among his followers for his investigations into what he believed were UFO covers-up carried out by government networks worldwide. His mother, Vanessa Bates, claimed she believes his work may have made him enemies who wanted him dead.
According to reports from Poland, acquaintances of Spiers observed him “vomiting a black liquid” on the day he died. His supporters have seized on this as well as two of the last messages he sent as indicators that something irregular had occurred. In his last message to Bates, Spiers wrote: “Your boy’s in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate.” And responded to a friend on social media requiring into his health, Spiers wrote: “I’m good, I am just wayyyyyy too tired.”
Spiers died soon after, after giving a speech at a conference in Warsaw 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,” Bates said. “But I think Max had been digging in some dark places and I fear that somebody wanted him dead.”
Spiers’ remains were brought back to Canterbury, England after arrangements were made with Polish authorities by his mother. A pathologist carried out a post-mortem examination, but the results are still pending.
“Apparently, he had not suffered any obvious physical injuries but he could have been slowly poisoned, which is why the results of toxicology tests from his post-mortem are so important,” Bates said.
