Alex did the only reasonable thing, there is no evidence or reason to believe the deaths were faked, and you don't spew misinformation if you do not have all the facts. He just didn't want to talk about it because he didn't have all the facts. He plainly said, it's quite possible it IS a conspiracy. But that is not the kind of thing you make allegations of, unless you know for damn sure what you are talking about.
There are plenty of other questions that need to be asked. That one, at this point in the process, is not one of the important questions to ask, and I think the way he handles the issue is perfectly understandable.
