Conspiracy Theories, Mysteries

“If anything happens to me, investigate.” British UFO expert Max Spiers sent this creepy warning, days before his death


An ever-deepening mystery surrounds the death of ufologist and conspiracy theorist Max Spiers, who was found dead while preparing to expose politicians and celebrities linked to a global conspiracy…

In July 2016, a 39-year-old UFO researcher, conspiracy theorist and father of two, Max Spiers, was found dead on a friend’s sofa in Warsaw, Poland. Originally from Canterbury, England, Spiers was due to speak at a conference in Warsaw that month, where it’s believed he was set to lift the lid on a global black magic conspiracy and a paedophile ring inside the US Army.

Just days before his death, Spiers sent a text to his mother, Vanessa Bates, saying, “Your boy’s in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate.”

His mother, an English teacher, told newspapers, “I think Max had been digging in some dark places and I fear somebody wanted him dead.”

Polish authorities concluded that Spiers had died from natural causes, despite no post-mortem examination being carried out. After Spiers’ body was returned to the UK, British doctors at Margate QUQM Hospital in Kent did a post-mortem but were still unable to determine how he died. To this day, Spiers’ cause of death remains a mystery.

However, an inquest into Spiers’ death, which opened at Canterbury Coroners’ Court in December 2016, has added some disturbing clues to the mix. The inquest is ongoing, but it’s already been revealed that Spiers was puking up a mysterious black liquid shortly before his death. (Makes me think of the black oil—that nasty alien virus in The X Files!)

Coroners’ Court investigations officer Caroline O’Donnell said this:

“When they returned [from Cyprus, where Spiers and his friend had just been on holiday], Mr Spiers became ill with a high temperature and was weak. The following day, Mr Spiers vomited two litres of black fluid. The friend called a doctor who attempted resuscitation before pronouncing him dead.”

His mother, Ms Bates, said that Spiers’ computer had been wiped, his emails and documents deleted, by the time it was returned to her. So she had no way of knowing what her son was working on during his final days.

However, it’s been reported that Spiers was investigating allegations of sexual abuse at a military base in California at the time of his death. In addition, his fiancée, Sarah Adams, said that he’d been researching a “global black magic ring” and that the couple had received death threats connected to it. Adams said:

“He was going to expose black magic. He was going to expose some of the stuff he was working on involving political leaders and celebrities.”

Max Spiers was a big conspiracy theorist. When I say big, I’m talking David Icke proportions. Lots of people believe that 9/11, JFK’s assassination and Princess Diana’s death were inside jobs. Spiers believed those too, but his portfolio of theories went a giant leap further.

He believed in the New World Order, a secret elite society masterminded by black magicians trying to take over the world. He thought that there were massive underground cities beneath London and Los Angeles that were controlling people’s minds. He believed in Dulce Base, an underground facility in Dulce, New Mexico, jointly run by humans and aliens and used to carry out genetic experiments on kidnapped people. And he thought that Prince Charles, Jimmy Savile and the Bush family were extraterrestrial reptiles.

Now Spiers himself is right at the centre of his own conspiracy theory. His family believe that someone was trying to shut him up. And scores of conspiracy theorists are convinced that the world’s governments/New World Order/reptilian elite are systematically killing off UFO researchers. They’ve linked Spiers’ death to ufologist and ghost hunter Gaurav Tiwari, found dead in India around the same time. Tiwari’s death was ruled a suicide, though many suspect that paranormal or government forces were at work.

Stoking the conspiracy fire is a list compiled by a Professor G. Cope Schellhorn and posted at This lists over five dozen UFO researchers, investigators, authors, military personnel, alien contactees and others said to have died too young from heart attacks, cancers, murders and an unprecedented number of suicides.

I had a breeze through this list and it’s as I expected. Even Stanley Kubrick is on the list, and no right-minded person thinks there was anything suspicious about his death. But ‘Professor’ Schellhorn said, “I believe that Kubrick was killed by advanced technology by people who he was once aligned with,” before saying immediately afterwards, “OR was Kubrick’s death more closely related to 9/11 and the World Trade Centre”. His list is composed of coincidence, conjecture, lies and nonsense—the stuff that is typical of the hardcore conspiracy theorist.

Still, the softcore conspiracy theorist—the more rational type who needs evidence but is not naive to the fact that cover-ups and conspiracies do happen—would have to admit that Max Spiers’ death is disturbing and suspicious. What on Earth could this black fluid be that he was throwing up? Was he poisoned? Could his death be linked to these abuse allegations he was looking into, an altogether more down-to-Earth-sounding conspiracy in his bank of wacky theories?

The inquest is due to resume on February 22nd 2017. We can’t jump to conclusions just yet. If further evidence deepens the mystery or makes it look like Spiers was actually murdered, a follow-up blog will be in order.
