A conspiracy theorist texted his mum to say ‘If anything happens to me, investigate’ just days before his mysterious death.
Max Spiers, 39, a father to two boys, was found dead on a sofa in Poland, where he had gone to give a talk about conspiracy theories and UFOs.
He was ruled to have died from natural causes despite no post-mortem examination being carried out on his body.
But his dark investigations into UFOs and government cover-ups may have made him enemies who wanted him dead, says mother Vanessa Bates, 63.
In a chilling text message to his mum just days before his death, Max wrote: “Your boy’s in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate.”
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. Mirror.uk
