The Claim

The Pentagon killed the man who invented water-powered cars.

Emerging story

A newscast highlighting the invention of a water-powered vehicle was posted on social media. It suggests that the inventor of the car was killed by the Pentagon. The video was then shared close to 10,000 times. 

Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar discovered that the inventor in question was Stanley Meyer, who died March 21, 1998 in rural Ohio. The latest post about Meyer is not the only accusation of murder as the cause of his death. It is easy to find claims by many that Meyer was murdered because of his inventions, especially his water-powered car.

According to Carthrottle.com, Meyer was the owner of many different patents throughout his lifetime. He was recognized by many national and international scientific boards and organizations and won the award Inventor of the Year in 1993. When oil prices went higher in 1975 due to the oil embargo the U.S. was experiencing, Meyer went to work inventing a hydrogen fuel cell powered car. Some believed that the invention was a major revolution. 

Meyer, his brother, and two Belgian investors met at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Ohio on March 20, 1998 to celebrate, according to the Columbus Dispatch. During lunch, Meyer took a sip of cranberry juice. Then he grabbed his neck, bolted out the door, dropped to his knees and vomited violently. According to his brother Stephen, “He said, ‘They poisoned me.’ That was his dying declaration.” Following his death, a three-month investigation was conducted by the local police.

According to The Classic Car Trust, Steve Robinette, the lead detective on the Meyer case, collected the testimonies of everyone in the parking lot. A toxicology analysis attributed Meyer’s death to a brain aneurysm, compatible with previous episodes of hypertension. After three months, the case was closed and the final word was “death by natural causes.” 

According to fuel-efficient-vehicles.org: “He was kind and generous yet paranoid and suspicious. He would be hailed as a visionary and a genius. He also would be sued and declared a fraud.” 

The circumstances surrounding Meyer’s death are unusual and resemble the foundation of a typical murder mystery novel. However, at this time, there is no proof that he was poisoned.
