On March 14, 2014 was preparing to go into surgery on his foot. He had excused himself to visit the hospital men's room and never came out. The official cause of death has not yet been announced. In July 2010 Leir suffered a bad roll-over car accident while returning home from the International MUFON symposium in Irvine, California. He injured his foot and stomach and was hospitalized for some time before returning to his various projects.
A well known figure in the UFO community, Leir's work gained worldwide attention thanks to his investigations in to the phenomenon of alien implants and his alleged removal of several such objects from the bodies of abductees. He was the author of The Aliens and the Scalpel : Scientific Proof of Extraterrestrial Implants in Humans (New Millennium Library, V. 6) - UFO Crash in Brazil - Casebook: Alien Implants (Whitley Strieber's Hidden Agendas)
It has been said that Dr. Leir was one of the world’s most important leaders in physical evidence research involving the field of Ufology. He and his surgical team had performed fifteen surgeries on alleged alien abductees. This resulted in the removal of sixteen separate and distinct objects suspected of being alien implants. These 'devices' appeared to exhibit anomalous isotropic ratios and chemical compositions comparable to those found in meteorite samples, leading Leir to conclude that they may be extraterrestrial in origin. Several prestigious laboratories have examined these objects over the years however the results remain both controversial and inconclusive.
In addition to his research, Leir has also been a speaker at multiple international conferences and symposiums and has appeared on numerous television and radio shows to discuss his work.
Dr. Leir will be forever remembered as one of the world's most dedicated and controversial UFO researchers.
