Mystery surrounds conspiracy theorist's death

Did Max Spiers really die of natural causes or did someone want him dead ? Image Credit: sxc.hu
Father-of-two Max Spiers was found dead back in June after going to Poland to give a talk about UFOs.
Having made something of a name for himself in the field of UFO investigations and conspiracy theories, Spiers had been due to give a talk at a conference in Poland when he was inexplicably found dead on a couch inside a Warsaw apartment after allegedly 'vomiting a black liquid'.

According to his mother, Vanessa Bates, Spiers had actually sent her a text message a few days earlier saying - 'Your boy's in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate.'

Local authorities determined that the 39-year-old had died of natural causes, however Ms Bates maintains that they had reached this conclusion without carrying out any kind of post-mortem.

She also claims that when she requested to see the paperwork pertaining to her son's death she was refused access because she didn't have 'written permission'.

"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," she said. "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."

"The father of two was ruled to have died of natural causes....."   I'm sorry, but nobody dies of natural causes at 39. You're still  basically a kid at 39. You die of natural causes at 79 or 89.

It depend of how bad is your genetic and your lifestyle. Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo?ole died at 38 of natural cause.

A friend of mine who is barely 30, had the good idea to go to the hospital the day he felt weird, because he would have fallen to a virus induced heart attack. There are plenty of ways to die before 40 of natural cause, although statistically its improbable, individually it's still possible.

Not correct, I'm sorry. I had a close friend die of a heart attack at about 28. She was fit, a military member who had regular medicals, etc. It was just one of those things.

    I think it's the fact that he 'vomited a black liquid' that's getting people excited and shouting 'unnatural causes'. From Googling 'black vomit': Black vomit is usually caused by bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract. The bleeding is a sign of an underlying medical problem. Patients who vomit black or dark brown blood, bright red blood, or blood that looks like coffee grounds should see a doctor as soon as possible for evaluation and treatment. Occasionally black vomit can be caused by something a patient has eaten, as in the case of a patient who eats a dark food like chocolate ca... [More]

I had no idea he was dead. And for nearly twenty years.  I'm sorry to say that lots of people die of natural causes at that age and younger.

While this man's death is regrettable, one must ask, is it even possible for a conspiracy theorist to die a natural death given the oddly skeptical nature of the discipline?

Well said.

I nearly died of an unsuspected ulcer at the age of 31.  Same symptom. I had "back pain" which I attributed to carrying furniture around.  This was "referred pain" according to the gastroenterologist, not at all rare it seems.
