The death of a well-known British conspiracy theorist and UFO investigator has sparked a host of unusual conspiracy theories.
Max Spiers, 39, was found dead this summer. According to Rob Yaugh’s blog on Yahoo News, Spiers “claimed to have survived a secret government ‘super soldier’ program.” He was also well known for his investigations into UFOs.
The Sun said authorities believe Spiers died of natural causes, but no post-mortem investigation was conducted overseas where he died, and his mother says he was fit and healthy. Conspiracy theorists believe real-life “Men in Black” might have killed Spiers.
But that’s just the start of it.

Spiers’ mother, Vanessa Bates, says Spiers had texted her just days before his death. The Bases Project says he died July 15.
He wrote his mother, according to The Sun: “Your boy’s in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate.”
The Guardian says that, although a post-mortem investigation was not done in Poland, one was done in Kent, England. Spiers’ mother told the British news site that she is still waiting for the results. It’s not clear whether an inquest will be conducted and the North East Kent coroner’s court declined to comment to The Guardian.
“Apparently, he had not suffered any obvious physical injuries but he could have been slowly poisoned, which is why the results of toxicology tests from his postmortem are so important,” Spiers’ mother, who is an English teacher, told The Guardian.
