On July 15, 39-year old presenter on the UFO conspiracy circuit Max Spiers was found dead on the sofa of an apartment that he was staying at in Poland. His body has since been returned to his hometown in Canterbury, England, after Polish authorities determined that he had died from "natural causes." However, his mother has recently revealed a number of clues that cast doubt on the official cause of his’ death — clues that suggest he was murdered, possibly by practitioners of black magic.

An up-and-coming speaker on the conspiracy convention circuit, Spiers was in Warsaw, Poland, to speak at the New Earth Conference being held there, presumably regarding his alleged experiences in a government-run super soldier program, and his views on related conspiracies.

A few days before his death, Spiers texted a cryptic message to his mother, Vanessa Bates: "Your boy’s in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate."

"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," according to Bates.

"But I think Max had been digging in some dark places and I fear that somebody wanted him dead."

Fellow presenter and close friend of Spiers, Sarah Adams, elaborates on those "dark places" that Bates mentions: “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.

“We were used to getting death threats or stuff like that from people, but I think this time it seemed rather real,” she said. “He’d been sent threats saying that him and me were going to die.”

Bates also finds the official cause of death of her son to be suspicious, as she reports that no post mortem was conducted on his body by Polish authorities:

"All I have is a death certificate from the Polish authorities that it was from natural causes, but no post-mortem was done so how can they tell that?

"They are also refusing to release any paperwork about it to me because, absurdly, I don’t have his written permission."

“A person has died here and I don’t think it’s good enough [that] somebody who just took normal medication should end up vomiting, spewing black liquid, whatever it was," explains Spiers’ friend, Miles Johnson.

"And then shortly after that, whatever length of time it was, died.”

Blood coming from the lungs is often described as being nearly black in color: the description being given by witnesses suggests that Spiers was suffering from hemorrhaging in his lungs, although if this is indeed the case, the cause of this bleeding remains unknown.
