Oh Elvis where art thou? For more than thirty-five years Elvis lovers have been asking themselves this question, desperately wanting to believe their musical hero is still alive. It appears, as do most “conspiracies” that the ‘Elvis is alive’ theory has its roots from the beginning of Elvis’s announced death. The ‘Elvis is still alive’ mindset has even become ingrained into the mindset of Pop Culture, where no matter the generation everyone has gotten used to hearing the crazy tales of ‘Elvis was spotted at the KFC’ on Main Street somewhere in Bumfuck, Wyoming. The first I ever heard about Elvis was from the Public Enemy song Fight the Power released in 1989.  I was twelve years old and these lyrics cemented my early imagery of ‘The King’

Chuck-D's powerful words resonated to a white boy who since age 6 loved hip-hop so much, he made his first attempt at breakdancing in front of his horrified Grandmother. With Elvis being outed as a racist punk that apparently stole black culture (a feat repeated by Eminem) I never became an Elvis lover or even cared, although I did sit through an Elvis impersonator show when I visited Vegas as a teenager and I enjoyed it very much. 

It wasn’t until years later when I saw a Youtube clip of a fat, sweaty Elvis stunningly singing his heart during one of his final performances Unchained Melody that the power of Elvis truly hit me. Just to make sure I wasn't trippin', I watched a few more of the King’s performances and lo and behold I was pleasantly surprised at just how amazing Elvis really was! Oh yeah, he wasn't racist either, turns out he was just a Southern boy with mad soul. 

There is no denying that Elvis WAS the Greatest performer that ever lived. His onstage charisma and ability to control the audience is UNMATCHED. Period. Even when Elvis was drunk or stoned out of his mind he still had the crowd in the palm of his hand. This astonishing stage presence, along with his incredible singing voice makes up for the fact that Elvis never wrote any of his songs. Elvis recorded more than 600 songs throughout his career, but didn’t write a single one of them. Despite his incredible talent, he was in fact just another factory issued, media-made celebrity. Besides Frank Sinatra, Elvis was one of the first teenage superstars and thanks to his appeal, helped pushed Rock n’ Roll into the mainstream and forefront of Pop Culture. An art form that prior to the King's influence was only to be found in Black neighborhoods, concocted in mashed up experiments with the blues. Being a poor boy from the deep south, Elvis was exposed to this music at an early age. While his career was taking off he was forced into the Army and went along with everything asked of him, performing for the troops and helping to keep morale high while being stationed in Germany. It was during this spell in the Army that Elvis's mother died, an event that mentally fucked with him for the rest of his life. The death also made it easier to emotionally manipulate Elvis, now suspectable to Monarch Butterfly Mind Control methods. He was the choice role model for America and came along at exactly the perfect time during the rise of the most perfect tool ever created for mind control - the Television

After being discharged from the Army, Elvis was given a huge welcome home bash by Frank Sinatra at the Fountain Bleau in Miami Beach. The special was broadcast on CBS and was a huge success, garnering the highest ratings up to that point in the history of television. 

Elvis was put through the wringer in Hollywood, and forced to “act” in countless crappy movies the studios turned out for huge profits. The Elvis model would inevitably set the bar for all other future superstars to be modeled after. Lost to the world, and even himself would be the 'real' Elvis which is understandable since for more than twenty years Elvis was nothing but a puppet, used as his handlers saw fit. Whether it was on stage, in the movies or the recording studio, the name Elvis Presley meant big dollars. 

Poor Elvis had grown sick of it all. He couldn’t go out in public without being recognized, this torment forced him to experiment with various wigs and beards. For all intent and purposes Elvis was dying not to be Elvis anymore. He had grown depressed and fat, his fans and the media made fun of his karate-chopping antics and over the top diet. If a man wants to eat a bacon, peanut butter and cheese sandwich covered in maple syrup, who the hell are we to deny him? Needless to say the ‘King’ was exhausted at being famous and bored with being a prisoner. He apparently also had an epic drug problem, and loved prescription pills so much he kept an Encyclopedia of all the various pills and what effects they were good for handy at all times. Liveleak reports:

One report, by BioScience Laboratories, found fourteen different drugs in Elvis' system, ten in significant quantity. Elvis' personal physician, Dr. George Nichopoulos, was found to have written Elvis 199 prescriptions totalling more than 10,000 doses of sedatives, amphetamines and narcotics in the first 8 months of 1977. Dr. Nichopoulos was charged with prescription fraud (criminally) and was threatened with the loss of his medical license. He defended himself by saying that he was actually trying to get Elvis to stop taking so many drugs. The whole story of Elvis' drug abuse is amazing. Elvis had a history of disrupted sleep, sleepwalking and nightmares going back to childhood. It intensified after the death of his mother and after he was drafted into the army in 1957. By the mid-1950's, Elvis had started using amphetamines; they were legal as appetite suppressants until 1965. They kept him going and they kept his weight down. They also, of course, kept him awake. After Priscilla left him in 1971, Elvis's behavior became more erratic. He spent more and more time in a chemical fog.

In 1973, he overdosed twice on barbiturates. He began cancelling shows more and more often. At the end of the year he was admitted, semi-comatose, to Baptist Hospital in Memphis. This time, he had been secretly seeing a doctor in Los Angeles. He was suffering from poisoning from cortisone injections (probably for rheumatoid arthritis), and had become addicted to the very potent opiate Demerol. Dr. Nick put him on methadone, and tried to stop the flow of other mediations from other doctors. "Elvis's problem," Dr. Nichopoulos has said, "was that he didn't see the wrong in it. He felt that by getting it from a doctor, he wasn't the common everyday junkie getting something off the street. He was a person who thought that as far as medications and drugs went, there was something for everything." One time when he was in the hospital, Dr. Nick and Elvis's road manager, Joe Esposito, raided Elvis's bedroom at Graceland: they found three giant pharmacy-sized jars, each containing 1,000 high-dose Seconal (a barbiturate), Dexedrine (an amphetamine) and Placidyl (a tranquilizer). There were even vials of pills hidden in the seams of the curtains.  

Dr. Nichopoulos testified that if he refused to give Elvis what he wanted, Elvis would just find another doctor. "He'd get mad at me, and he'd get on his plane and fly to Vegas or Palm Springs or California and stay for a few days and get what he wanted. And I'd have to take it away from him when he got back home." After a series of embarrassing on-stage disasters and show cancellations when other doctors tried their methods on Elvis, Dr. Nick became the regular tour physician. Licensed only to prescribe drugs in Tennessee, he would stock up on "supplies" before leaving the state. After the first couple of times out, he got to know what he would need in advance. He began each tour with three locked suitcases filled with prescription drugs. Dr. Nick tried to control the drugs for Elvis. On tour, Elvis would come to him at regular intervals: on waking; before the show; after the show; and at bedtime. Each time, he would be allowed specific uppers and downers in the lowest doses Dr. Nick thought he could get away with. At home, without the excuse that he needed amphetamines to perform, Elvis was given just the manila envelopes of sleeping tablets -- "bedtime packet number one" and "bedtime packet number two" -- to be handed out separately during the night. During the 10 years he treated him, Dr. Nick never knew Presley to sleep for longer than three hours at a stretch without waking up, looking for more pills.

Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977. At the time of his death, he was suffering from glaucoma, high blood pressure, liver damage and an enlarged colon. All of these ailments were aggravated, if not caused, by drug abuse. "He didn't have any major heart problems. Even with his obesity and everything - that's what really surprised me. I was dumbfounded that he died." The Medical Board heard evidence of astounding volumes of prescriptions written by Dr Nick. Between 1975 and 1977, he had prescribed 19,000 doses of drugs. In the first eight months of 1977 alone, he had written 199 prescriptions totalling more than 10,000 doses of sedatives, amphetamines and narcotics: all in Elvis's name. (That's 40 doses a day!) The board found him guilty of overprescription, but decided that his actions were not unethical. In 1994, the inquiry into the death of Elvis was re-opened. "There is nothing," said coroner Dr Joseph Davis, "in any of the data that supports a death from drugs. In fact, everything points to a sudden, violent heart attack."

So in one hand we have proof that Elvis had a Godzilla like drug habit, but in the other it appears that drugs didn’t play a hand in his death and that a sudden, conveniently timed heart attack did him in. Even one of his Doctors claimed that Elvis didn't have a drug problem! What does the autopsy have to say about all of this? We will examine those shady documents a little later, but first let's get back to that famous last image that the collective consciousness has of Elvis. You know, how the ‘King’ had been suffering from constipation, an uncomfortable side-effect from painkillers, when he went to take a dump on his gold-plated reclining toilet and apparently had a heart attack while trying to pry one loose. Elvis slumped off the toilet and died on the floor still plugged up, the last book he was reading about the ‘Shroud of Turin’ lay beside him. So begins the legend of Elvis Presley’s death, providing one of the funniest conspiratorial rabbit holes one can go down. 

Elvis has always been a mysterious dude and his overall tale is indeed strange. He had a twin brother that died stillborn. Elvis believed that his brother’s death allowed him to gain physic powers and that he was in communication with his dead brother up until his teenage years. Elvis also had an overactive imagination, couldn’t sleep very well and even had frequents bouts of sleepwalking. By the time Elvis supposedly died he couldn’t sleep for a consecutive of more than four hours without the use of pills. But now that Elvis finally kicked the bucket at Graceland, on August 16, 1977 he could finally get some rest, no more paparazzi, no more media demands, no more dieting or having to look hot for the cameras. Yes, Elvis had finally left the building. Or did he? 

Faking your own death would create an end to the never-ending list of public demands that celebrities have no choice but to deal with. It would make sense that at 42 Elvis would be more than fed up with being the most famous man in the world. Keep in mind, faking your own death isn’t actually illegal. It only becomes illegal if you cash in a life insurance claim when you’re not dead. Via Patrick Lacy on Elvis Decoded:

One of the biggest go-to pieces of evidence for those who believe Elvis is alive is the ‘King’s’ Llyod’s of London insurance policy. Which they claim was purchased but never cashed/paid out. Thus, they reason, the insurance policy supports the hoaxed death theory since Elvis and the estate would be guilty of insurance fraud if the policy had been paid out. First, this policy was never purchased. Second, this theory ignores the fact that Elvis Presley and his family had multiple insurance policies that would have been affected upon Elvis’s death. Or, are we to believe that one the biggest earners in the entertainment industry had just one insurance policy? Really? Just one? Finally, this piece of evidence, like so many other pieces of evidence offered up by the aliver’s, is researched only so far as it supports their death hoax theory. Once they decide a fact supports their theory, they stop researching. In this case, someone (who?) reports that a life insurance policy is still active, and well, that’s good enough for them. No research into whether the policy was purchased. No research into who reported that a life insurance policy was purchased. No research into how this information was obtained (since insurers closely protect customers’ medical and insurance information). No research into other insurance policies, and whether they were cashed or are still active. Nothing. To make a long story short, the estate deposited a lump sum death benefit check from the United States Treasury on February 21, 1978. This eliminates the "Lloyds of London" theory the aliver's use to support a death hoax, since this check represents a financial benefit for the estate as a direct result of the death.

Although the insurance claim has been debunked, there’s still a lot more surprising things to look at, most of which can’t easily be explained. Let’s continue to explore some of the other theories that might support the fact that Elvis faked his own death. First is the theory that his Autopsy report is only two pages long. This seems weird when the average report is around fifty pages. This is because what people mistake as the Autopsy report is actually the Medical examiner’s report. Postmortem #A77-160 was put together by the Baptist Memorial Hospital pathologists who performed the autopsy and is the sole property of the Presley family. It is not “under seal,” nor is it, as a private medical record, subject to judicial seal. Because the autopsy report is a private medical record, it will not be released at any time. Which sucks since apparently DNA from Elvis’s 1975 liver biopsy doesn’t match the DNA found in his autopsy report, according to the claims made by Bill Beeny:

Beeny's incredible story involves him being invited to the home of a prominent Memphis doctor who had in his possession the aforementioned items. The doctor had heard one of Beeny's many media interviews on Rock 102 radio station in Memphis about the 'Is Elvis Alive?' theme and contacted Beeny's son, Andrew, following the interview. Andrew is apparently a prominent lawyer in St. Louis. The Memphis doctor had obtained the autopsy report and tissue samples from Dr Harold Sexton, one of the pathologists involved in the autopsy of Elvis. Apparently, Dr Sexton was fearful of all the media and public suspicions about a cover-up and wild rumours following Elvis' "alleged' death, that he made a copy of the report and other documents relating to Elvis' "alleged" death to protect himself.

Beeny states (p.13): "The cries of "cover-up" dominated headlines."

And not only did the mystery doctor have the full autopsy report, but he also had samples of Elvis' DNA from his two liver biopsies and autopsy!!! Beeny (p.14) says the doctor had "...actual body tissue of Elvis". Beeny also states that the Presley family requested an autopsy as if the authorities had initiated it it would have had to be made public. This is a true statement in that family initiated autopsies cannot be made public without the consent of the family.
In the absence of being able to examine and have retested the tissue samples obtained by Dr Beeny, it is not possible to directly substantiate the findings in his book. Despite this, EIN has examined its contents and found a fatal flaw in its case.
Realistically, what do we make of Bill Beeny's story? There are a number of fundamental questions at the heart of his case, which need to be asked and satisfactorily answered:

Q: Did the Presley family request the autopsy?
EIN's (Elvis information Network) response: This claim is true; Vernon Presley signed an autopsy permission form. However, it was not signed immediately after Elvis' death as Beeny claims (p.13), rather it was signed after Dr Nick had spoken to Verno about it.
In the context of his conspiracy driven narrative, Beeny's use (p.13) of the words:
"immediately after Elvis' so-called death, the family ordered an autopsy performed on the body, on the advice of their lawyers..."
implies something more sinister, and ignores other reports that it was in fact Dr Nick who persduaded Vernon Presley to sign the autopsy permission form.
Q: How valid is Beeny's claim that if the autopsy is initiated by the medical authorities the report must be made public and in reverse it can be sealed for 50 years if sought by the deceased's family?
EIN's Response: Following an internet and library search EIN was unable to fully establish the rules governing release and protection of autopsy reports in Shelby County. However, we did find evidence supporting Beeny's claim (Guralnick, p.649). Our research also found that in a number of cases involving an autopsy, the state had refused to provide autopsy details including in the case Ronald Patrick Swiney v. State (1993-1999: death of Betty Snow). What this indicates is that the state does not always move to make autopsy results public. Beeny's release of autopsy claim is not materially affected by this finding.
Q: Would a copy of the autopsy report have helped or protected Dr Sexton, as is claimed?
EIN's response: This is a difficult question to answer. Without knowing exactly what Dr Sexton was fearful of, if he in fact actually was, it is hard to judge Beeny's claim. On the surface there doesn't appear to be a tangible argument to support the claim, particularly considering any conspiracy idea was several years away from media prominence.
Q: Bill Beeny has read the full autopsy report?
EIN's response: We only have his word for it.
Q: Who is the mystery Memphis doctor who allegedly has a copy of the full Elvis autopsy report and tissue samples?
EIN's response: Only the Beeny's know.
Q: Is it feasible Dr Sexton was able to take and retain part of Elvis' DNA (tissue samples) from both of his liver biopsies and autopsy?
EIN Response: While it is plausible Dr Sexton could have made a copy of the autopsy report, it stretches credibility that he could have taken and kept samples from Elvis' two liver biopsies and autopsy without their absence being noticed. DNA samples are subject to very strict storage and control arrangements, extending to the amount of sample used. (see Bill Beeny reponse to EIN article dated 11 May 2006 below)
Q: Were there widespread claims of a cover-up about Elvis' death in 1977 (as indicated by Dr Sexton's concerns)?
EIN's response: Actually NO, the Is Elvis Alive? theory only took off in 1979 following the Geraldo Rivera TV investigation, "The Elvis Cover-Up", and the publication of Gail Brewer-Giorgio's novel, "Orion". Certainly, from August 1977 there were small pockets of interest in the idea Elvis was still alive, but there were no screaming headlines saying "cover up" until years later. The conspiracy theory had its heyday in the 1980s with the raft of Elvis sightings from Kalamazoo in the US to Newcastle in Australia.
But in 1977 EIN is not aware of any major headlines crying "cover-up".
Q: The tested tissue samples are all from from the body of Elvis Aaron Presley?
EIN's response: Beeny's claim that all three samples are from Elvis is insufficient. Given the lack of 'chain of custody', one or more of the samples may not have been from Elvis' body.
So is Bill Beeny's book a clever scam, or does it actually contain evidence supporting the idea that Elvis did not die at Graceland on August 16, 1977?
The bottom line: In the absence of physically being able to substantiate the validity of the tissue samples it is not possible to discredit the Lab Corp test results. However, there are flaws in the Beeny argument as outlined above, and crucially, his DNA evidence will not stand up in a court of law as a secure "chain of custody" has been broken. The reality is that Dr Beeny's case totally unravels on this one, crucial point! It is its fatal flaw!

Elvis’s official death certificate won’t be released until 2027 and there are no existing photographs of Elvis’s body during the autopsy, a report already muddied by bizarre claims that Elvis was only 170 pounds when he died and had he had a huge scar running over his chest. Elvis was way fucking fatter than 170 pounds and didn’t have any scars over his chest. There are even some people that believe Elvis wrote his own autopsy report as funny joke to those in on the epic hoax. 

Moving on to the curious reports that Elvis was secretly working with the Feds and that they had a hand in putting him in the witness protection program, thus making it easier for him to disappear. It’s no secret Elvis loved the law, he was an honoree sheriff in many towns and even met with then President Nixon to discuss how he could be used to spy on various groups, including the Black Panthers in an effort to help the government. Maybe Elvis was more brainwashed than we could have ever imagined. After all he was in the military and would have been a perfect choice to try out future MK-ULTRA techniques on. 

According to lore Elvis had been tapped by the F.B.I. to help infiltrate the mafia and by August, 1977 the F.B.I. figured to have enough evidence to bring the mob to justice. On August 15th Elvis spoke with a Grand Jury in a downtown Memphis courthouse, but the conversation was never recorded nor were any indictments ordered. It would be interesting to know what was actually said during this meeting considering that Elvis would be dead less than twenty-four hours later. Maybe it was a high-level Black Ops meeting discussing the King’s "death"? Even if Elvis’s life wasn’t in danger, maybe he was sick of being famous to the point of wanting to fake his own death as a way out of the public eye? He definitely had the money and connections to pull it off. It’s interesting to note that a few of his prized possessions, including a family Bible, several pharmaceutical books, Cheiro's Book of Numbers, the Autobiography of a Yogi, extensive amounts of jewelry, pictures of his mother and his private plane along with over a million dollars from a private checking account all disappeared and were never recovered after his death. His behavior before dying was also odd:

In the weeks preceding his alleged death, Elvis's actions were not those of a man who was about to embark on an extensive US tour. He ordered no new suits despite having gained 50 pounds since his last tour, and he bid "adios" at his last show in Hawaii. He had never done this before. Adios, like the French adieu, has the significance of being a final good-bye as opposed to an "I'll be seeing you on my next tour" kind of good-bye. Others were intrigued by the King's decision to sign a lucrative TV deal with NBC that would cover the tour. It was unprecedented for a network to pay such a large amount up front, in cash, for such a deal. Many wonder why Elvis even agreed to the deal since his vanity discouraged him from making public appearances due to his obesity. RCA showed uncanny (and unbelievable) foresight by mass producing millions of Elvis's current and previous recordings and merchandise. 

This is standard practice for an act that is about to go on tour, but the numbers in this case were beyond reasonable expectations. The announcement of Elvis's death caused record sales to skyrocket. Elvis did other unusual things that created suspicion. First, he fired several employees that he had relied upon for a long time. Also, two days before his alleged death, Elvis telephoned a friend of his named Miss Foster. He told her that he wasn't planning on going on the upcoming tour. She asked him if he had canceled it, and he said that he had not. When she asked if he was ill, he said that he was fine, and that she should not ask any more questions or tell anyone anything, and that she should not believe anything she read. He told her that his troubles would all soon be over, and that he would call her in a few weeks.
The author of Elvis Where Are You? writes that Miss Foster took a polygraph test regarding this story, and that she was not lying. The day after Elvis's alleged death, a woman named Lucy De Barbon, a former lover of Elvis, received a single rose in the mail. The card indicated that the flower was from "El Lancelot." This had been her pet name for Elvis, and it was a name that no one else knew. Flowers can't be sent from beyond the grave. This was Elvis's way of letting her know that he was not dead, even though he didn't want to be found.

Elvis had a fascination with numerology - an interest he fed by reading Chiro's Book of Numbers. The theory that the King orchestrated his death is further supported when considering the significance of the date of his alleged death. The date in question is August 16,1977. By adding the numbers in the date, 8, 16, and 1977, you get 2001. This is the title of Elvis' favorite movie in which the hero plans his immortality in the bathroom. Elvis spent a considerable amount of time doing the same: planning his afterlife on the john. 

Elvis spent so much time in the bathroom that he had his toilet converted into a reclining comfy chair. Coincidentally, the bathroom is also where Elvis's body was reportedly found. 
Given Elvis's religious affiliation (Christianity), he had a fascination with things that come in threes i.e. father, son, and holy ghost. The sum of the digits from his favorite film (2+0+0+1) is three. Let's consider the triad of the repetition of the number 24. 2001 (favorite film) less 1977 (year of death) is 24. The two numbers from the day of death (8/16) when added up equal 24. The sum of the digits in the year of death (1+9+7+7) also equals 24. That is 3 occurrences of the number 24 which is divisible by 3, and when divided by three the result, 8 has a perfect cubed root (2x2x2=8). 
Elvis loved numerology, and when you consider the numeric significance of the date of his alleged death, it is clear that if indeed he did plan to fake his death, he could not have chosen a better date.

Elvis was a prisoner of his own fame. He had many other reasons to leave his life behind. Because of his incredible popularity, he was the recipient of several death threats, and he was concerned about the safety of his wife and daughter. Sometimes when he wanted to leave Graceland, he would send out look-alikes to distract would be followers. Elvis was also known to ride in the trunk of someone else's car to avoid detection. Once, when he fell ill in Las Vegas, he couldn't get proper medical attention because the hospital was overwhelmed by fans. 

At the time of his alleged death, Elvis was nearing the end of his career. He was 42, his hair was graying, he was grossly overweight, and his voice was starting to weaken. He was going down hill, and he was too proud to go out with a whimper. He would never want his fans to see him in such an unhealthy condition. Elvis had shown a fascination with death on several occasions. In the days leading up to his alleged death he was reported to have visited funeral homes at odd hours of the night with close friends. Was he doing research? Elvis once faked his death by setting up an elaborate shooting in which a would be killer fired blanks at Elvis who had a blood pack which he discharged. It was Elvis's intention to see how the people closest to him would react to his death. Perhaps what he learned convinced him to do it for real. 

Finally, one of Elvis' favorite books is the spiritual Autobiography of Yogi. One of the central themes of this book is the relinquishing of one's wealth and earthly possessions to achieve spiritual oneness. Elvis could do this, as well as address his other concerns of sanity and safety by faking his death and living in exile. Elvis had the means to fake his own death. He is accused of destroying himself with drugs. In reality, Elvis was a pharmaceutical expert. He took a lot of drugs, but he knew what he was doing and was extremely careful. He knew what drugs he could self-administer to create a deathlike state. Further, Elvis's experience with the martial arts was such that he could slow his heart rate and breathing in order to feign death. 

Elvis's manager, Colonel Tom Parker, had once created a new identity for himself. He came to this county as an illegal immigrant from Holland, but through various connections managed to create an elaborate identity complete with a passport, birth certificate, drivers license, and social security number. He would have known how to give Elvis a second life. 
In addition to Elvis's ties to the government through his testimony against the Fraternity, Elvis was known to interact with the President of the United States. He was reported in government documents to use the name John Burrows as an alias when he wanted to travel. 

Some people believe that Elvis worked for the government as a drug agent. He did, after all have extensive contact with many people in the music business who, as we know, tend to dabble in illegal substances. (Remember Payola?.. ) And, of course, we must allow that Elvis's connections to the government gave him access to the Witness Relocation Program. If they can turn the Simpsons into the Thompsons, they can relocate anybody. 

 Many believe that Elvis couldn't have given up performing cold turkey. I imagine that after a while the desire to perform grew once he started his life in exile. The story of Orion supports the theory that Elvis attempted an incognito comeback. 

Shortly after Elvis's death, a masked singer by the name of Orion emerged on the scene. He was big like Elvis, and he sang just like Elvis. Because of the mask, no one could tell his true identity. One fan described seeing Orion from near the stage. She claims that Orion left the stage between songs, and when he appeared moments later the sweat was gone from his armpits and back and she thought that his costume looked slightly different. After the song he left the stage, and the original Orion returned. Another fan described how she rushed into a tour bus at an Orion show only to see two Orions in the back of the bus. She claimed that one ducked into the bathroom before she could get a good look at him, but he appeared to look like Elvis Presley. What's even more remarkable is the fictional story called Orion that was written by Gail Brewer-Georgio about a legendary performer who had several identities and wanted to fake his death. The story was written and submitted to the William Morris Agency for publication consideration after Elvis's death and before the real Orion ever performed. As it turns out, there are many ways in which the real Orion mimicked the events as described in the book. For example, the performers' managers had the same name. Also, without knowing it, Brewer-Georgio wrote of events in Orion that had actually taken place in Elvis Presley's life. It was a case of life imitating art.
In 1981, 20/20 did an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the alleged death of Elvis Presley. The investigative report was very convincing. Oddly enough, within two weeks of the report, the singer, Orion, disappeared and was never heard from again. The book, Orion disappeared from shelves across the country. It had been recalled by the publisher which was associated with the William Morris Agency. Incidentally, the William Morris Agency is the same agency that represented Elvis Presley. I even tried to order a copy of the book, but was unable to. The woman at the book store said she couldn't tell me why.......It seems that Elvis Presley is worth more dead than alive.
Perhaps the most perplexing part of the Elvis faked his own death theory, and the one that makes the whole case baffling is the King’s public funeral. First off, why so soon? The funeral was only one day after Elvis’s death and the Coffin weighed an amazing 900 pounds! How was the Presley family able to find a nine hundred pound coffin so fast? And why the hell would they need one? The spectacle of watching a mass of Elvis pall bearers struggling to carry the massive coffin is enough to make you laugh or at least scratch your head in wonder. 

People who attended the funeral claim that areas around the coffin seemed colder as if there was an air conditioner attached. Keeping the temperature low would be necessary if the body in the coffin was a wax replica of Elvis, a theory which might be true. For example, the only known post death pic of Elvis is the coffin pic, this photo clearly doesn’t look like the fat Elvis that was living during that time. The nose is different...
and the hands were not rough enough. Elvis was a brick busting 6th degree black belt. Even one of the King’s famous sideburns appeared to be loose and falling off. Beads of sweat, or drops from the glue or wax were noticed by onlookers, a hairdresser later reported gluing the sideburn back on the body. The funeral wasn’t even attended by Elvis’s father or closest friends. They had a private gathering a week later. Cameras weren’t allowed at the funeral either, the famous photo above was  ran on the cover of the National Enquirer on September 6, 1977, just weeks after Elvis passed away. Who took the photo was the object of speculation for years, but it was later confirmed by a tell-all book by Enquirer editor Iain Calder that Elvis’ cousin Billy Mann was paid $18,000 to sneak a photo of Elvis in his coffin. Elvis’ cousin Billy Smith also corroborated this claim. (Some sources erroneously claim the cousin was “Bobby Mann” which is inaccurate. Some sources claim it was $10,000, some say $30,000, and others say $75,000.) This cousin should not be confused with Billy Smith, who was a first cousin and close confidant of Elvis.

There are also strange reports claiming a black helicopter was seen at the Graceland estate the day Elvis died. Did Elvis get on that helicopter? Monte Nicholson, a veteran with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Dept. writes in his novel The Presley Arrangement about a government helicopter hovering over Graceland, and finally landing in the back. Nicholson was informed there were pictures of Elvis getting on the helicopter during the early afternoon of August 16. Others report seeing a helicopter - including Larry Geller in his book If I Can Dream: Elvis' Own Story, who says he saw from his window at Howard Johnson's helicopters hovering over Graceland. In Elvis, My Brother Billy Stanley noted that Elvis was wearing a jogging suit with the DEA logo during the early morning hours of August 16, 1977. 

Elvis was pronounced dead at 2:56 PM. Between that time and when the body was viewed the next day, there seemed to be enough time to do all of the following: Autopsy and embalming were completed, the body was back at Memphis Funeral Home around 8:00 PM, sixteen white limousines were ordered, a white Cadillac hearse was readied, a specially designed casket was ordered and flown in, a casket blanket of 500 red roses was made, the security and police were ordered, the tour was canceled, personal calls were made by Vernon to fan club presidents asking that they not attend, clothing was chosen, songs were chosen, ministers contacted, the procession planned, and the body was put on private display by 11:30 the next morning. 

To the shocked world Elvis was dead, but apparently just four months after his death he was caught in an irrefutable photograph sitting in his favorite chair overlooking the throngs of admirers visiting his grave. The Elvis lives continued to grow throughout the ensuing decades with reports of him appearing all over the world. He even had time to act as an extra in the popular movies Home Alone and Finding Graceland. (Finding Graceland was produced by his daughter Lisa Marie, who Freudian slipped on Larry King that "Elvis loves Football")
The problem when examining the death of Elvis, is that he was loved by so many people and because of that they will look for and find anomalies that make them believe Elvis is indeed alive. There are plenty of weird things that can be made for this claim, one is the existence of a dude called Jesse, who at seventy years old looks like an aged Elvis. He even has similar bone and facial structures in the only picture that we have of him, released in a book from 2004. A Tennessee doctor alleged he had been treating Jesse (Elvis) for years and the picture was snapped when Lisa Marie took her son to see his grandfather Elvis. Unfortunately there is no other footage or images to go on and the whole story is basically second hand:

The book, written by a board-certified psychiatrist named Dr. Donald Hinton and his mysterious co-author Jesse, claims that Jesse was actually Elvis, having faked his death with the help of his manger, Colonel Tom Parker.  Jesse, by the way, was the name of Elvis’ identical twin brother who was stillborn. According to Dr. Hinton, Jesse had to get away from the life of Elvis for several reasons, primarily because of his poor health and due to threats against him and his family.  Col. Parker agreed to help because he could earn lots of money from doing so, Dr. Hinton said.  Indeed, Elvis has been at or near the top of Forbes’ list of the highest earning dead celebrities for years. Dr. Hinton said he treated Jesse for nearly six years for pain management due to his arthritic condition and other medical problems.  

He claimed that Jesse opened up to him and told him of his true identity.  His book included many handwritten letters by Jesse and said it was Jesse’s way of re-introducing himself to the world.
There were a few problems with Dr. Hinton’s story.  One was that he promised in the book that Elvis/Jesse would reveal himself to the world in 2002.  Obviously, that never happened. Another was that the book led to an investigation of Dr. Hinton for mail fraud, by the Missouri Attorney General’s office, as well as by the DEA and Missouri Healing Arts Board for illegally prescribing medications to Jesse.  Dr. Hinton actually lost his ability to prescribe medicine and was placed on 5 months probation by the medical board. But the Dr. Hinton investigation did lead to an interesting place.  When Dr. Hinton came under attack, his patient, Jesse, wrote a letter to the Attorney General supporting Dr. Hinton and refuting the mail fraud claims.  He included the following in his letter: Sir, I don’t know if you believe in my continued existence or not, but if I continue to expose myself like I did in the book, I will be eliminated very easily.  Pure and simple as that.
The Attorney General’s office had the letter analyzed by a special type of handwriting expert, Shirley Mason, who was a certified graphologist.  Graphology is commonly used by the FBI and throughout Europe, but is not universally accepted. Mason worked for the Kansas City Bureau of Investigations for many years, successfully using graphology as evidence in criminal court cases.  Shirley Mason reported that she compared the Jesse letter to past letters written by Elvis.  So what did she have to say about it?
Not only did they match, Mason wrote, but she would testify in court, under oath, that Elvis “has to be ALIVE.” She felt the handwriting was “UNMISTAKABLE”.  The attorney general’s office cleared Dr. Hinton of all charges.
A television reporter in Cleveland, Suzanne Stratford, began investigating. She interviewed Dr. Hinton on camera and analyzed the evidence, including the Mason report, a picture taken 6 months after the funeral of what looked like Elvis peering through a screen door (and certified by Kodak), and the fact Elvis’ tombstone lists his middle name as “Aaron” when official records show his true middle name to be “Aron”.  [See the pictures below on this point].  Stratford also reported that Dr. Hinton had passed a lie detector test they had administered.
And there’s more.  Stratford reported she was contacted by Jesse.  She asked for, and received, a sample of Jesse’s DNA, in 2002, so it could be tested.  FOX 8 News did in fact test the DNA sample against known “control” samples of Elvis, including a 1975 liver biopsy sample and tissue from his autopsy.  The problem was that they didn’t match. But again, another interesting turn.  Not only did the “Jesse” sample not match the other two samples, but they didn’t match each other.  In other words, Elvis’ autopsy tissue did not match the liver tissue from 1975.
So where did the autopsy sample come from?  Does this mean that Elvis’ autopsy was faked?  Maybe. But, of course, there’s only one person alive (other than Jesse, of course) who can definitively prove or disprove that Jesse is Elvis … Elvis’ daughter.  FOX 8 News contacted Lisa Marie Presley’s representatives and asked for a sample of her DNA to find out the truth.  She declined.

The strange story of whether Jesse was actually Elvis falls apart rather quickly: 

In his talk “Is the King Dead?” Anthony Tambasco of the Mansfield Police Laboratory addressed a recent claim that Elvis Presley is still alive. The story starts with a doctor’s claim that he is treating Elvis Presley, who assumed the identity of his twin brother Jesse Presley after faking his death. To determine whether Elvis Presley is still alive and using his brother’s name, investigators contacted “Jesse” and performed a number of tests. Handwriting samples provided by “Jesse” were compared to letters written by Elvis, but these comparisons yielded inconclusive results. Fingerprint cards from Elvis Presley and “Jesse” did not match. DNA testing was also performed. However, finding a suitable reference sample to generate Elvis Presley’s DNA profile proved challenging.

Materials submitted as reference samples included a scarf, which yielded degraded DNA and thus no suitable profile, a blood-stained pair of jeans, which yielded a mixture of male and female DNA, and tissue samples taken during two liver biopsies and Elvis’s autopsy, which yielded DNA profiles that did not match each other. None of these profiles matched that of “Jesse”. To complicate matters even more, a woman named Eliza then surfaces, claiming to be Elvis’s half sister. She underwent DNA testing, and the results were consistent with her being a half sister to “Jesse” and related to a paternal first cousin, but not a maternal first cousin, of Elvis. Thus, her DNA results could not disprove the hypotheses that she is Elvis’s half-sister and “Jesse” is really Elvis living under a different name. However, as Tambasco phrased it in an interview with the media, “many unrelated people can exhibit similar DNA markers”. The evidence could all be circumstantial, and to date, there is still no conclusive proof that Elvis is still alive.

It’s hard to say whether Elvis faked his own death or not. There’s no concrete evidence to support the theory, then again there isn’t anything factual pertaining to his death either. Simply put, Elvis disappeared from public view in late 1977 and was replaced by an onslaught of marketing merchandise and well-timed posthumous album releases. The Elvis is alive theory seems to be a case of what you want to believe. For the most part, the general public believes that Elvis left the building in the late seventies, but a small minority, fueled by a culture of conspiracy stand firm that the ‘King of Rock n’ Roll’ is enjoying a triple cheeseburger dripping with bacon somewhere over the wild blue yonder. On his last concert tour, an overweight Elvis famously warned his fans that his days of touring were numbered by saying, “I may not look good tonight, but I'll look good in my coffin.” On a different occasion, also on the final tour he said, “I know I look fat now and I'll look terrible for my TV special coming up. But I'll tell you this: I'll look good in my casket.”
Yes, Elvis your wax body double sure did look good in that casket. Lol. Long live the King!


  1. we can hope that he has been able to enjoy a life not controlled by psychopathic {economic} parasites...

    when you have a chance, re-visit how the mind control machine came into existance..

    Elvis bought a horse farm between Horn Lake & Walls in 1966....the sunday morning after having purchased the property the cars on the side of the road stretched hundreds of yards at the intersection..
    one week later there was a 10 foot wood fence ....

    1. You are so correct on the mind control machine. That link alone, if anyone suffices to dabble beyond a mere glance, will open their eyes where they may not be able to handle the truth.

    2. Wonder what's happened to the horse farm.Maybe the the 10 ft fence would have be put up for privacy and safety.Elvis liked animals a lot.

  2. very well written and researched - so pleased to see someone thoughtfully investigating what i consider to be the final frontier of the alternative research community, namely faked deaths

    you should do michael jackson as a companion piece, especially since lisa marie was married to him for a while

  3. Elvis Part I...I am former U.S. Secret Service, SDPD, U.S. Customs, etc..over 25 years)
    I had both alleged recordings of the late Elvis tested against the 1988 Gail Brewer DiGorgio taped conversation with a person who "sounded" like "Elvis" and the recent FRAUD DVD "Elvis Found Alive" which had many other mistakes to it.(Photo shopped altered photos, actors,and actresses "admitted" to playing along with the masquerade)
    My intent was to prove Elvis "may" be alive.
    Unfortunately, the results FAILED to prove these recordings came form the real Elvis Presley.They were compared digitally with "Known" recordings of Elvis's voice.

    NOTE: The Digital analysis of 2012 showed there was only a 55% probability when you need 95-100% for positive results. No where in the range of exact match was found.
    Even DNA tests were faked according to to what I have found out, even though there is evidence that suggest Elvis may have faked his death.(So far ALL the evidence has been categorically disputed and there is no "new" evidence)
    There are some very unscrupulous "people" that are befitting from Elvis's death on memorabilia and records, DVD's, CD's, etc...
    I am aware of at least one web site that claims all kinds of things, but does not have REAL proof.(Hoax)Linda Hood Sigmon
    No one can come up with a good photo of the alleged "Jesse" aka Elvis either. The ears are always covered up, etc..
    I am also an identification expert thru my former agency at U.S. Customs, Secret Service, SDPD, etc... and routinely caught 100's if not thousands of impostors carrying fraudulent passports with faked photos, fingerprints, etc..
    Even an alleged "relative" claims she has DNA to prove she is the "daughter" to Elvis....but still no court appearances yet.
    I have talked to Elvis's Family and close friends and they do not believe Elvis is alive.
    There are so many questions that go unanswered....Why not put this theory to rest and just have the body exhumed and DNA tested against "known" DNA samples of Elvis?
    Why doesn't the Family to Elvis come forward to disprove these theories? Maybe they want him left dead with the possibility that he is really alive?
    Even some other theories "unpublished" today,are not conclusive as certain controlling "parties" always seem to conveniently have "secrets" or other persons allegedly connected to the Elvis theory, but FAIL to give truthful information. Like the theory Elvis is remarried and has 2-3 children by an ex-Government agent?
    I can go on and on, but my instincts tell me many people are lying cause they are crazy, and others to benefit from the masquerade that Elvis may be alive.
    Personally, I would love to have been the one that proved that Elvis was Alive with the Digital testing done last year, but it failed which proved otherwise. Yet others in prominence still insist Elvis is alive with science proving otherwise. These tests were done with independent technicians thru very reliable resources.There was no reason at all to lie. In fact,it would have been very valuable to prove Elvis was Alive and this was not accomplished.These current tests are being used in current criminal court cases that are as good as DNA testing.Quite a jump since 1977 and 1988.
    See Elvis Part II...
    Any questions?, just send me an email. John A. Carman former U.S. Secret Service. ( )

  4. Elvis Part II...
    Another fraud who continues to insist she talks with Elvis(thru a voice scrambler) is Linda Hood Sigmon, who is usually on serious medication according to Dr. Hinton who was penalized for issuing medications "Illegally" to others claiming to be Elvis and LHS.
    Dr. Hinton lost his license for 5 years and probably should have lost it permanently for fraudulently giving serious restricted narcotics to unknown person in exceedingly "illegal" amounts.
    So far there is no current proof that Elvis is alive and recent DNA tests by outsiders, are still not exposed or brought to court.
    The Elvis Presley Estate "EPE" also does not want a potential Elvis Alive theory to come out as it would also damage the income in some way.I'm not sure how?? Even the Presley Family gets upwards of $55,000,000 Million USD per year on residuals and such. Not bad unless you have to pay for that Castle in England eh? Long Live the King !
    Some day, I will publish my own book and findings on this "mystery".
    Any questions?, just send me an email. John A. Carman former U.S. Secret Service. ( )

  5. It could be true. I'm 50/50 on the issue. Nonetheless, this is a good article.

  6. I wish Elvis well. I hope that he is happy and not burdened by the predators of this world. If he faked his death to be free then we should let him alone, and if he has passed on then I hope that he found love and freedom there. Either way I wish I could join him.

    1. "Either way I wish I could join him." And that's why he "faked his death".

  7. A long time ago,I remember reading and seeing a photograph from an artist/writer who found a clipped toenail in the shagged carpeting while touring Graceland. The toenail was enshrined in a plexiglass case. The photo of this art piece was published in a book with commentary on Elvis' toenail. Just saying...If you need some DNA, shake the carpets at Graceland

  8. I doubt Elvis would have faked a death that had him unable to pass a compacted stool, causing him to drop dead on the bathroom floor as the strain compressed his abdominal aorta and blew back on his heart valve. That is an uncommon and undignified way to go, and a man of his means could have arranged any number of dynamic or romantic ways to disappear.
    Some years ago the point was made that when it comes to celebrities there are people who find it difficult to accept their hero/ine is mortal. They essentially elevate them to god-status.
    It's a shame but Elvis died young. Let him go.

    1. this is idiotic, my dad loves elvis, never really payed much attention to him, randomly found his hawaii concert, watched it last night, realized how fucking amazing he was (seriously, who else can perform with that much soul and still control the crowd), googled "did elvis fake his voice" because there are segments where what I consider to be his "other" voice comes out, his higher pitched voice, and I then came across this.

      The info is great, the man in the movie has elvis' twitch, he has elvis' nose (the nostril is bigger on the left, smaller on the right) and honestly, if there were to be a sneak-in from elvis, thats the perfect fucking clip.
      Then you move onto the fact that his autopsy shit doesnt match, all these clues, and the possibility opens up that he is alive. does it matter? no, if he is alive, im fucking glad because I felt sorrow for him hearing about how he was manipulated by his manager. Seriously, elvis was a kid deep down, and no matter how bad it got, he was always forced to do shit. Thats just sickening, who wouldn't want to escape from that. So there's two paths, the king died from drug overdose, or he bounced. Either way, he got out of that life he had, the life that was going downhill

    2. There's no proof at this moment in time that he's dead but there is that he's alive.Like when Priscilla made the coment on an interview that's been put on youtube that Elvis likes football.Priscilla and Lisa Marie have made slip ups in public.Like when he sent a rose to an ex girlfriend with a card.Abit impossible to send that beyond the grave.There's a lot to prove he's alive.His life and that of his family was in danger besides other things in his life going on that he needed to get away from.

    3. Just another plonker that's all. Songs were really good, good face. Hair looks ridiculous and this outfit was crazy

  9. A long time ago,I remember reading and seeing a photograph from an artist/writer who found a clipped toenail in the shagged carpeting while touring Graceland. The toenail was enshrined in a plexiglass case. The photo of this art piece was published in a book with commentary on Elvis' toenail. Just saying...If you need some DNA, shake the carpets at Graceland

  10. If you are out there, Elvis... We still love you. So very much. So very much in fact, that it physically hurts. I hope and pray that if you are alive, you have love and have found peace.

  11. If you are alive, can I have your blue suede shoes?

    claims pages ask the editor

  13. I feel Elvis is alive in his music. He will live forever.


    1. WARNING: Don't open this link, AVG caught several threats from this site.

  15. why doesn't someone set up,take the family to court to have the body dug up,so they can take dna from it,and see once and for all if it is a wax dummy in the coffin?

    1. Because money talks. Not only EPE ,Lisa,Priscilla don't want it to come out and the city of Memphis, because they think they will lose money. I don't think it would hurt their income because people will always want to see where Elvis lived. I mean with all of the evidence that shows that things don't add up you would think that the courts of Memphis would check into this big time, but Memphis is so afraid that they will lose all of the tourist and the monies that is spent. That's probably why. This message is to answer Paul Rozell.

    2. I agree with Mellinda,money does talk.The fbi were supposed to have dug it up.Maybe they have and nobody knows yet.It shouldn't be up to Priscilla it should be up to Lisa Marie as she must be his next of kin.Priscilla is divorced from Elvis now.There's enough to get it dug up.Surely the fbi don't need to ask they could get a warrant.If they really wanted to doesn't take long to issue one.

  16. Very well written.Fantastic facts and statements.Makes you wonder. Love the Home Alone one. When I saw it a couple of years back I was blown away.Just one question though, if Jesse is prepared to take tests and write notes etc why doesn't he just come out to the world and let everybody know whats going on. Why the secrecy?

    1. Because this way it's letting people know but if it's not confirmed for sure Elvis can still have peace because if you see him and think that guy sure looks like Elvis that's fine but when it's not confirmed then in your mind tells you it's not it just looks like him and more then likely you will leave him alone like not believing what you are seeing because you haven't been told that what you are seeing is what you are seeing. do you know what I am saying it's simple the mind kinda has a way of not being sure of itself because we have so many other people telling us something different so it's like who's going to believe you for sure anyway.

    2. Another thing is if there wasn't something to the claim then why is it talked about so much most of the people that would have that much interest has lives now they have family's jobs kids grandkids why would they still be on this thing about Elvis still being alive after all this time if there wasn't something out there solid somebody knows something I think.

  17. I just hope if he is alive to wish Mr. Presley a long and healthy life. About this article, I don't believe everything I read like Elvis himself once said, but it sure is very interesting to read. Thanx for keeping us interested on the subject with more to feed our curiosity.

  18. Jesse Whas proven Not To Be Elvis Presley


    For Elvis Presley, our HERO of the whole world!!!

    PLEASE CLICK on the LINK and SIGN!!!

    Elvis needs help from all his fans now! Elvis has always been there for us, now is the time we should be there for him, OUR KING, OUR HERO! PLEASE HELP ELVIS PRESLEY!!!

    1. I do think there's a very strong possibility Elvis is alive.With the photo that was taken of the door at the Pool House that Elvis owns and lots of other things that has happened.When at the funeral someone asked Vernon what's going on where's Elvis and Vernon replied,he's upstairs.The body wasn't Elvis in the coffin.An hairdresser was seen gluing his side burns on.The list can go on very long.No one being aloud upstairs at Graceland only Priscilla,Lisa Marie and the Curator.Something very strange.

    2. Only a select few are allowed upstairs,The King does not want to be disturbed! :)


    Come on everyone, sign the petition! Elvis will make his comeback very soon! Please sign the petition and show that you stand behind him. That will be great for our Hero ELVIS PRESLEY! Thank you!!!

    1. Well I hate to be the one to burst your bubble the best way is to keep him in your hearts,if he wanted to die then respect his wishes and leave him dead.Be careful what you wish for ,you might not like it.I remember his first ever appearance on TV so he's a few years older then me,yes he had a very nice voice,he had a style that was different so what you see today if indeed
      he's still is a shell of a broken down old man without the same voice as we remember.May hi rest in peace

  21. Well written article. I agree with most of what you have compiled but I disagree with a few things. Elvis never drank and then went on stage. The last book Elvis was reading couldn't have been The Shroud of Turin because it was written in 1978. There were 3 life insurance policies. Two were cashed in because they were paid-up policies. The autopsy was pretty immediate because it was the same day he supposedly died. Bill Beeny's DNA test was accurate because Fox News ran the same test with the same results. Elvis' voice never weakened and was actually extremely impressive in his 1977 CBS special. Gray hair would not have mattered to Elvis because he colored it anyway. Elvis is an 8th degree black belt, not a 6th. Jesse looks nothing like Elvis and has been proven to be a fake time and time again.

    1. Stop the petitions,,,, He dont whant to come out more,,,if you love the man please STOP. What wrong did he do to you all,,,trying forcing goverment to let him out,,,,,he can never bee him self any more please understand that,,,,,i cant say more.

    2. Thank you_ And Elvis Aron Presley if you are out there I love you always have always will and what does it matter if you faked it and you are not letting anybody know you know people love you anyway .I remember seeing your concert on TV I think I was15 16 I thought well he has gained a little weight and look how beautiful he still is my brothers were like look at him he has gained weight and I said can you imagine gaining that weight and still looking that good it's almost like I knew somehow that although he still looked gorgeous if he gained a lot of weight I am thinking that weight wasn't real somehow he gained it from something not food and he wanted to portray the fact he gained weight to go with what he was about to do it mad it more believable I still have a weired felling about this .

  25. I've loved you since I'm 10.

    I am now a successful stock investor and of course grown up but, I still love you.!

    1. youre a successful stock investor? ok Im just 14 year old that is interested in business and trading. right now me and my friend just trade in plus500 in a demo account of course. one day I want to make my own hedge fund.
      I don't know why I am writing this..i was just hopeful for any tips or advice from you I guess. you said 'successful' not many people can say that I am assuming youre rich? possibly a millionaire? ;D

  26. i came in like, o yeah sure
    but after reading the article I am amazed by the research.
    and i must say i am now 50/50 on the issue.
    well done, and great read !!!


  28. The slanderous comments made about me by John Carman are totally untrue. I invite everyone to my web site where you may see, read and hear proof that I am friends with Elvis Aron Presley, who reinvented himself as his stillborn twin brother, Jesse. You will hear 15 songs sung by him on a CD released in 2012, see many letters handwritten by him in handwriting which has been analyzed and declared to be the handwriting of Elvis Presley, see two photos taken of him after 8-16-1977...both said to be him by himself.

    I have 95+ pages of documentation and over 388,000 visits.

    Here is my web site address which is in existence with the 100% support of Elvis Presley.

    All information on my site is FREE to everyone.

    1. I dont know if Elvis is with us or not. I do feel Lisa or Priscilla needs to publically say these websites should be shut down if they are duping his fans. Elvis was a the greatest entertainer of all time these sites tarnish his legecy.

    2. I have been trying to reach out to tell Mr. Haze about my experience in Louisiana near Lake Pontchartrain where I encountered people who knew of the fact that Elvis Presley was living down there as late as the 90's and was protected by locals who kept it quiet.

      I met a gentleman who told me in a very unpretentious and resonantly veracious manner that he had seen Elvis himself down there passing by his cabin on a sailboat.

      Of course,I did not see him myself and this gentleman was not even sure that he was still alive when we talked about it but I have a very deeply held feeling that this was no put up or con job.
      The story fit with the fact that Elvis had a girl he loved down there in the past and the relative anonymity of the generally sleepy and remote nature of the place make it an ideal area to slip between the raindrops,as it were.
      All it would take is cooperation from Priscilla and Lisa Marie who could channel all kinds of money to him so he could live well.They probably visited him regularly,I should think.

      In the Urantia Book it talks about the vicissitudes of fame and how it made even Jesus a target.Elvis suffered from this in spades and the logic of him opting out of a very unsatifying life that brought him death threats and suffering is not far fetched in the least,He had his fame and ego gratification and preferred a spiritually sustaining life to the rat race he existed in.

      Thanks for hearing me out,
      Les Jamieson,Urantian Facilitator I can be reached at to discuss my thought provoking experience.


    3. Hi Linda, how do I get in contact with you. My book on Elvis is scheduled for release this christmas and I would love permission to use some of your photos. contact me

  29. Linda I have read your website many times but to get mad at people for not agreeing with you is not fair.

  30. Sucking down Hycodan and dreaming about Elvis must be a million laughs!

    Just to help your readers along,Elvis was not about to go off on an extensive tour when he died,it was a modest little jaunt to about 10 cities.
    And,his funeral was two days after he died,not the next day as this writer asserts.

    If you can't tell that 70 year old "Jesse" ain't Elvis then you need new glasses.

    Why on Earth do you bother with this stuff?

    1. Why are you so negative? Mickey Moron has the bona fides and just because he makes a little money off of all of this is nothing to sneer at.

      Mickey Knows because,well,he just knows.

  31. where to u see Elvis in Home Alone !!!

  32. i beleive the truth sets you free,i am a great fan,my father met him yrs ago in United States,there might be a 50/50 chance here,he might be alive,if he faked his death beleive me he had good reasons.but if he was alive why not set the truth out,i know he was spiritual and people could learn from him still.only god has the right to judge,and god heeds the truth told.if hes not alive than let him rip.Elvis Forever

  33. This is a very good article. I find it presents balance. Especially about the Beeney dna. Beeney couldn't unload his museum fast enough to Andrew Keys before the news hit the fan. Now Andrew Keys is stuck with a hoax and everything is in a storage room. I know that photo of Jesse was taken in 1989 so that would of made Elvis around 69 and the man in the photo does look that age to me. The collar bone is a great example too and the teeth are exact. There was dna testing done in a lab that matches the 1st maternal and paternal cousins to this Jesse. AND Beeney's did not match either cousin, not one of his samples. Long live the King!

  34. Hello true Elvis fans,

    Let me know: *

    and I'll add you to the group.

    Thank you!

  35. I saw this article and according to this, he died last August 2007?? I'm really confused about this :(

  36. Give me a break. Another fag in love with Elvis living in a small town hates himself, his job, so dreams of being another person. Thinks if your famous then you don't have problems. Loser

  37. OH my god ! firstly, let him be dead if he wants to be like m. jakson and so many others.
    secondly, I can't believe i wasted half hour of my life , reading this article when it has been said many times over and over in utube and other sites articles hoping for some new evidential news . holy crap
    so many sh*t happening in the world and this one here has a petition for elvis coming to declare himself alive and safe. get a life . start a petition for something usefull like genecide or banks cartells or people controlling the industry and your brainwashed mind you edi-0ut/ jeez.

  38. elvis is not dead because his bedroom has stayed the way it was the day he died and the greve has spelled it wrong and its aron not arron

    1. You are right Daniel.No one only Priscilla,Lisa Marie and the Curator are allowed upstairs.There's lots of things that aren't right.The body was not Elvis's.His life was in danger.

  39. my dad was the biggest Elvis fan he even lied to his mother to go see him. in fact i wish i could put his photo up in is early 20's again he would pick my mom up in his black Buick black hair slicked back black and and awesome shirt .women ran to my dads car the principle told him to park on a side street he was causing a commotion.he has always believed he was alive till my dads death i picked his procession song was i did it my way by Elvis perfect

  40. Concerning the land between Walls and HornLake Mississippi : A Memphis police detective told me that the farm stayed basically the same until just a few years ago, and suddenly was emptied.. or something similar. The thought was that maybe IF Elvis had faked his death, that POSSIBLY he then really had died and the estate was being adjusted accordingly.
    Can someone investigate this concerning the property?

  41. -------- SEE MY ABOVE STATEMENT and QUESTION --------

  42. Many years ago i would debate this subject with my Uncle, and we would both be 50/50 on the matter, then as time went on, i thought nothing has come to light so Elvis must be dead, but reading this very well written piece on the subject as opened my mind again, on one point above everything else, that being the 1975 Elvis DNA not matching the autopsy DNA, how can that be, will the truth ever be told about this, probably not.

  43. I had lunch with my uncle last week, he is doing well and still gets a great laugh after all these years with all the thecnology that no one has knocked on his door and outted him for still being alive. He almost wants to happen so when you guys do realize he is still alive he can ask what took u so long and they he can do it all over again. Once u figure out where he has been living you will kick your self in the butt for not figuring it out soonet

  44. After working for President Carter, I was chosen along with five other FBI agents, to work in the protection room divison, ''Room'' code for any and everything that needed federal protection, On file locked away from the public eyes and press, past,present,future files, current and non-current, over the course of thirty years until my retirement, I handle the suppose to be dead, I protected Howard Hughes until he (really) died, Jim Morrisson still alive, Elvis Presley still alive, and then some others, Jim helped turn in some drug dealers in France, Elvis helped the feds with the New York mafia, bringing down thirty mob bosses arrested on Augest 16 1977, the day Elvis was taken away from Memphis, and into hiding.

    1. But then the Mob probably suspected Elvis was still alive, so why didn't they go after his family/daughter for revenge in the years to come ? I am sure not all mobsters were arrested and it couldn't have been that hard to go after his family to hurt him...

    2. Even to this day some files on Elvis are still classified due to security reasons.It's obvious he's alive.The body was not his at Graceland.There's a big list of incidents that aren't right.He did a lot for the fbi.He was great for the community.A kind and caring man always wanting to help.

  50. An amazing testimony on a spell
    caster who brought my wife back to
    me.. My name is jason Powell,i live in
    USA,and I'm happily
    married to a lovely and caring
    wife,with two kids.A very big
    problem occurred in my family
    seven months ago,between me and
    my terrible that she took
    the case to court for a divorce.she
    said that she never wanted to stay
    with me again,and that she didn't
    love me anymore.So she packed out
    of my house and made me and my
    children passed through severe
    pain. I tried all my possible means
    to get her back,after much
    begging,but all to no avail.and she
    confirmed it that she has made her
    decision,and she never wanted to
    see me again. So on one evening,as
    i was coming back from work,i met
    an old friend of mine who asked of
    my wife.So i explained every thing
    to her,so she told me that the only
    way i can get my wife back,is to visit
    a spell caster,because it has really
    worked for her too.So i never
    believed in spell,but i had no other
    choice,than to follow her advice.
    Then she gave me the email
    address of the spell caster whom
    she visited.
    {}. So
    the next morning,i sent a mail to
    the address she gave to me,and the
    spell caster assured me that i will
    get my wife back the next day.What
    an amazing statement!! I never
    believed,so he spoke with me,and
    told me everything that i need to
    do. Then the next morning, So
    surprisingly, my wife who didn't call
    me for the past seven {7}
    months,gave me a call to inform me
    that she was coming back.So
    Amazing!! So that was how she came
    back that same day,with lots of love
    and joy,and she apologized for her
    mistake,and for the pain she caused
    me and my children. Then from that
    day,our relationship was now
    stronger than how it were before,by
    the help of a spell caster. So, i will
    advice you out there to kindly visit
    the same website},if".
    you are in any condition like this,or
    you have any problem related to
    "bringing your ex back. So thanks to
    the Dr ukokobill for bringing back my
    wife,and brought great joy to my
    family once again.},
