London: Max Spiers, a British Ufologist and conspiracy theorist texted his mother to say “If anything happens to me, investigate” just days before his mysterious death.
Spiers, 39, was found dead on a sofa in Poland, where he had gone to give a talk about conspiracy theories and UFOs.
While local authorities say he died from natural causes, his mother has expressed doubts over the verdict, the Telegraph reported.
Vanessa Bates, Spiers’ mother, said: “I think Max had been digging in some dark places and I fear that somebody wanted him dead.”
A Daily Mail report said some of Spiers’ friends have claimed he died after he “vomited a black liquid”.
The 39-year-old’s death has sparked speculations among conspiracy theorists. Scott C Waring of UFO Sightings Daily told Metro: “This is really strange. It does seem that UFO researchers are now being targeted, probably to slow the rate of information being leaked to the public.”
Spiers had 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, according to the Mail.
