In a rather curious development, it has been revealed that the computer of conspiracy theorist Max Spiers was ‘wiped’ by authorities following his mysterious death. The revelation reportedly came during a pre-inquest hearing held in his native England as part of a slowly unfolding investigation into the researcher’s sudden passing while visiting Poland in July of 2016. Spiers’ surprise demise left many wondering if something nefarious had occurred as he was said to have vomited a considerable amount of ‘black liquid’ prior to his death and had also allegedly texted his mother claiming to be in trouble.
And now new details about the case have emerged which raise even more questions about the nature of his passing. At the hearing aimed at reviewing the case prior to an official government inquest into Spiers’ death, an attorney for his mother and, ostensibly, his estate said that the contents of his computer had been erased by Polish authorities. Additionally, something was done to the SIM card of his cell phone which seemingly led to information contained on the device to vanish as well.
These eyebrow-raising actions as well as conflicting stories coming from emergency personnel have further fueled speculation that Spiers’ death was not due to natural causes, as determined by Polish authorities, but rather something far more sinister. Bolstering that concern is an additional report which states that the police officers in charge of the case are “facing disciplinary action” for an unspecified mishandling of the investigation.
Compounding the confusion surrounding Spiers demise is that hundreds of pages of official reports and evidence on the matter are written in Polish. Fortunately a good portion of that material is set to be translated for the official inquest. That said, it will likely be a while before we get any answers as the hearing is not scheduled to take place until early January of 2019. And, considering how things have unfolded so far, one should not be surprised if new insights at the hearing next year only serve to deepen the mystery of Spiers’ death rather than solve the case once and for all.
