British UFO hunter’s laptop was ‘wiped’ after mysterious death
The laptop of a British UFO hunter was reportedly ‘wiped clean’ before being handed back to his family after he mysteriously died.
The sudden death of Max Spiers, 39, has been shrouded in mystery after a friend discovered his body while he was on a trip to Poland to visit a conference.
In December 2016, the court heard the conspiracy theorist vomited two litres of black blood before he died, but the inquest was adjourned.
The dad-of-two, had allegedly made many ‘enemies’ in his investigations.
His inquest will now be held over four days from January 7, next year.
Authorities in Poland, where Mr Spiers was attending a conference, initially concluded the sudden death was due to natural causes.
A message from his phone sent to his mother Vanessa Bates before he died warned ‘your boy’s in trouble, if anything happens to me, investigate’.
At the pre-inquest review yesterday at the Guildhall in Sandwich, Kent, the court heard the barrister for Max’s mother, Adam Taylor, call for members of the Polish emergency services to appear as witnesses.
Sections from a 700-page docket of statements and evidence assembled will be translated from Polish for next year’s inquest.
Possible evidence over whether disciplinary proceedings were brought against police officers in Poland over Mr Spiers’s death should also be heard.
Analysis of a laptop and a mobile phone that belonged to the father-of-two should also be presented at the inquest, the court heard.
