The death of 39-year-old UFO expert and conspiracy theorist Max Spiers in Poland was not due to natural causes, his family and friends believe. Apparently, the strange text message Max Spiers sent to his mother challenges the Polish authority’s verdict of his death in July.

The Polish authorities claim that the UFO expert died from natural causes. However, his mother, Vanessa Bate, says that there was no post-mortem examination performed in Poland.

Moreover, Vanessa believes that her son was in danger. Max texted her, “Your boy’s in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate.”

Vanessa believes that the enemies her son made during his career wanted him dead to cover up any of his investigations about UFOs and other government schemes. She adds that Max was exposing dangerous individuals in the world of government and entertainment.

“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,” Vanessa points out.

Despite not receiving her son’s toxicology report, Vanessa thinks that Max was poisoned. Friends say that Max was vomiting a black liquid before he died and he was suffering from headaches for days.

British authorities said that they will not investigate the death of Max, who was a resident of the UK at the time of his death in Poland. A spokesperson of the Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) adds that the UK has no jurisdiction to investigate the death of British citizens abroad but they already provided assistance to Max’s family.
