THE suspected girlfriend of a Brit UFO conspiracy theorist who threw up two litres of black fluid before dying has been quizzed by cops.
Max Spiers was found dead on Monika Duval’s sofa in July 2016 – just days before he was due to speak at a conspiracy theory conference in Poland.
The 39-year-old, who sought to expose Government cover-ups, vomited two litres of black fluid before his death, an inquest heard in December.
Cops have now opened an investigation into involuntary manslaughter and seek to question science fiction writer Duval, who was present at the time of his death.
Lukasz Lapczynski, prosecutor in Warsaw, told the BBC: “At this stage we have determined that the ambulance arrived at the request of Mr Spiers’s partner.
“Our initial investigation indicates that it was Mr Spiers’s partner [who called the ambulance], but the nature of this relationship is unclear.”
He added: “The nature of this relationship will be determined during the investigation.
“The doctor started resuscitation which was not successful. As a result of the doctor’s decision, the police weren’t involved in conducting additional procedures.
“The information about Max Spiers’s death reached the prosecution office on August 30 when the body had already been transported to the UK. We couldn’t do a post-mortem which is essential in such cases.
“The prosecutor told me he plans to interview everyone that was present when Max died. We know Monika was there, but it’s unclear who else was around.”
What is a conspiracy theory?
Dictionary.com say a conspiracy theory is “a theory that explains an event as being the result of a plot by a covert group or organisation; a belief that a particular unexplained event was caused by such a group” or “the idea that many important political events or economic and social trends are the products of secret plots that are largely unknown to the general public.”
Max had warned his mum to investigate his death if anything happened to him before heading to Poland.
He was ruled to have died from natural causes despite no post-mortem examination being carried out on his body.
An inquest into the conspiracy theorist’s death was opened in December and continues later this year.
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 was a former classmate of Orlando Bloom.
‘HE WAS DIGGING IN DARK PLACES’
IS THE TRUTH OUT THERE?
‘SACRIFICED TO SATAN’
END OF DAYS
He lived in the United States 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.”
Speaking to Project Camelot, friend Miles Johnson said: “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.
“And then shortly after that, whatever length of time it was, died.”
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.
His unexplained death, and its subsequent treatment by the authorities, has left many online followers convinced he was killed by government agents.
Conspiracy theorists have long been convinced that UFO chasers who get too close to the truth are “bumped off” by the secret services or so-called men in black.
On one website, Project Camelot, a blogger wrote: “The entire circumstances are suspicious and I urge everyone to encourage the release of details about what really happened and call for an autopsy.”
Another, Craig Hewlett, added: “If it wasn’t true what he talks about then why would they kill him? Healthy people don’t just get sick and die, they get poisoned.”
Mum Vanessa, an English teacher, also buys into the theories.
She said: “Max was a very fit man who was in good health and yet he apparently just died suddenly on a sofa.
“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.”
Max was buried in Canterbury cemetery after his mother arranged to have his body flown home a week after his death.
