It is not the purpose of this site to state that ELVIS PRESLEY hoaxed his death and may still be alive. This is left up to each individual to decide for themselves what happened on 16th August ,1977. The facts are just presented for your consideration.
I'd like to address a few things. A person becoming a federal agent and then faking his death is a pretty huge conspiracy. One conspiracy in a family is extremely rare and the odds are astronomical. Somehow from 1988 to 2017 we have Elvis involved in so many conspiracies that it's becoming impossible to ever get to the truth. Here is some of the stuff I've been hearing lately: Elvis is preaching in front of a congregation at his own church and allowing footage to be put on youtube, Elvis is hanging out on Paltalk and "hinting" that he's Elvis, Elvis has many Facebook accounts and tells various people that he is Elvis, Elvis is riding around on a lawn mower allowing his picture to be taken, Priscilla died years ago and the woman we see now is a double, Jesse is still alive, Elvis has a 2nd and 3rd brother, Lisa Marie is not Lisa Marie, Elvis is working as a groundskeeper at Graceland and purposely being seen on camera. Preaching in front of the world, , allowing yourself to be photographed, admitting who you are, trying to sound like Elvis, etc.....None of these are good ways to hide. We have gone from a conspiracy that is hard for people to believe but is possible to the impossible. One of those things may be true. All of them cannot be. One lady told me that she is married to Elvis. Now let me give you my opinion of what we should do. So far we have found it impossible to prove any one of these stories. The next logical step is to use the process of elimination. We need to start weeding out this mess by disproving as many as possible. "Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." -- Arthur C. Doyle. I think we have been working on this from the wrong angle and too many have become as gullible as Linda Hood Sigmon. Always, always, always ask for proof. If they can't provide any then don't believe them. It's okay to investigate their story but don't take their word for it.
Just for the sake of the argument, if there are people, thinking, Elvis died in August 16, 1977, Memphis, TN., they should consider the alternative(s).
The so called 'proof(s) of his death' are not conclusive, but ambiguous, deficient, incomplete, and opened to objective information and analysis of the fact(s)-based chronology of events. Thank you

N THIS UNDATED LETTER BY VERNON PRESLEY, HE CONFIRMS THAT IT WAS ELVIS' WISHED TO PERFORM IN EUROPE BUT HE NEVER GOT TO!!
I found this undated letter written by Vernon Presley to all fans of Europe for their support of Elvis. In this letter Vernon states that Elvis never got to tour in Europe, even though it was one of his hopes and dreams to perform in Europe.
Touring Europe would of been great but it was not to be (as we know that the Colonel could not go to Europe as he was wanted for murder which was unknown to Elvis at that time)!
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
HOW MUCH MORE CAN EPE ROB THE FANS ?
What people have to realize is Elvis' did fake his death, just like the world's greatest magician we were shown smoke and mirrors and seen what they wanted the world to see , but my friends "NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS " The only thing that died on that hot August day was the Image but Elvis ,the man went on to live under a new identity ( with a new look, hair,) back story of his new life , (fake photos )so because he has not aged in front of us there is a mechanism that make you who u are , NO one can make u feel that electricity that you felt in his presence U can't hide that no matter what your name was change to , U can change the out side but u can't change who u are inside ...
it is what it is, now to show u who he is today it time for the smoke to fade for the truth to come out and show Elvis as a young 83 year old man with silver hair , any way , the 80' is the new 50' in this day and time & with all honesty who he was 40 years ago is not who he is today.
One of Elvis's very favorite books was/is "Cheiro’s Book of Numbers". It is very fascinating reading material...Anyone who has not believed that Elvis “faked” his death on August 16, 1977, needs to rethink their doubts.
Elvis said many times that he could feel God directing his life…
Remember that August 16, 1977 = August is 8, 16th is 2 x 8, and 1977 equals 24 which is 3 x 8.
Look into the presence of his #8 in the date 8-16-1977. Of course, the month of August being the 8th month is obvious to everyone…but look farther at the #8…first of all we have 1×8, 2×8, 3×8 which equals 8, 16, and 24. So, there we have the three multiplications of 8 (888) as well as 8+8+8 = 24. So this alone was an amazing date for Elvis. Then coupled with the fact that the year 1977 equals 24.
Cheiro’s Book of Numbers it is explaining the meaning of 24 and 42.
42 (Elvis’ age), it is simply the reverse of 24 and has the same meaning as the 24 (see the "Cheiro’s Book of Numbers").
From 1935 to 1956 was 21 years. From 1956 to 1977 was 21 years. Then, of course, 2 x 21 = 42 which brings us back to the numbers 42 and reversed to 24. So, until 1956 when Elvis hit the national stage, he lived as Elvis the normal man; then from 1956 until 1977, Elvis was the “superstar image“; after which he returned to be just a normal man ...
ELVIS PHONE CALL AFTER 1977.
Let me know what you think
ELVIS: DEAD OR ALIVE YOU DECIDE WHAT DO U THINK ABOUT THIS ARTICLE GROUP
1. Elvis’ name is misspelled on his tombstone. Elvis’ full name is Elvis ‘Aron’ Presley…, not Elvis ‘Aaron’ Presley. His father would not have let this happen. When Elvis was born, his name was misspelled on his birth certificate and his father went to great lengths to get the error corrected. The spelling of Elvis’ name was very important to the Presley family. They wanted Elvis to see that Aron was part of Garon (Garon is the middle name of Elvis’ twin brother that was stillborn). Why the misspelling on the tombstone? Some say it is because Elvis did not want to tempt fate.
2. Elvis’ current resting place is in between his father and his grandmother and not next to his mother where he had adamantly requested. It is doubtful that the people close to him would allow these things to happen. Elvis is a superstitious man – enough so that he wouldn’t tempt fate by putting his real name on a tombstone, or violate the ground next to his mother until he was ready to be placed there for good.
3. Elvis was very vain, and he was embarrassed about his recent weight gain – An astonishing 50 pounds in the month before his so-called death. Even though he weighed 250 pounds at the time of his death, his death certificate lists him at a spry 170 pounds. The original death certificate disappeared, and the current death certificate is dated two months after his alleged death.
4. Elvis’ coffin required several pall bearers because it weighed 900 pounds. Attendants at the funeral reported that the air around the coffin was rather cool. It is suspected that the coffin contained an air conditioning unit or dry ice to keep a wax body cool. A wax body that was a replica of Elvis designed to fool funeral- goers. And how did the Presley family get a 900 pound, custom made coffin ready for the showing of the body that was held on the day after his death? It takes a lot of time to build such an elaborate coffin. Alanna Nash, formerly of the Louisville Courier-Journal, who viewed the body in the casket twice, commented on how wax-like it looked. La Costa, sister of Tanya Tucker, said, “We were right up to the casket and stood there, and God, I couldn’t believe it. He looked just like a piece of plastic laying there. He didn’t look like Elvis at all… He looked more like a dummy than a real person.”
5. And why have the funeral so quickly? Some speculate that the immediacy was intended to make it as difficult as possible for the people who were Elvis’ biggest fans (heads of fan clubs, etc.) to attend the proceedings. It could be a concern that they might recognize the flaws in the wax replica…, many of which were noticed anyway.
6. Elvis was an 8th degree black belt whose hands were rough with calluses, yet the body in the coffin had hands that were soft and pudgy. The body in the coffin had a pug nose and arched eyebrows (unlike Elvis) and most importantly, one of the sideburns on the corpse was loose and falling off. A hairdresser later reported gluing the sideburn back on the body.
7. Two hours after Elvis’ death was announced publicly, a man who reportedly looked remarkably like Elvis purchased a ticket for Buenos Aeries, paid in cash, and used the name John Burrows: the name Elvis had used as an alias several times before.
8. He had a few books that were considered to be his most prized possessions. He had a Bible, several pharmaceutical books, books on death, and most importantly Cheiro’s Book of Numbers and the Autobiography of a Yogi. After his death was announced, these books disappeared and were never recovered. Also missing were specific pieces of jewelry and pictures of his mother.
9. In the weeks preceding his alleged death, Elvis’ 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.
10. Elvis fired several employees that he had relied upon for a long time.
11. Two days before his alleged death, Elvis telephoned a friend of his named Miss Foster (Elvis had been friends with her for a long time because she reminded him of his mother). 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 reads. 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.
12. The day after Elvis’ 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.
13. Elvis had many reasons to fake his death. Elvis’ life was in danger. He had recently lost $1,300,000 in an airplane/real estate deal with a California based organization called the “Fraternity” that had links to the Mafia. It is speculated that he corroborated with the government to expose the organized crime ring in exchange for protection – perhaps in the form of a new life and identity compliments of the witness relocation program.
14. 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 ex-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.
15. 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’ experience with the martial arts was such that he could slow his heart rate and breathing in order to feign death. He was an eighth degree black belt.
16. Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker, had once created a new identity for himself. He came to this country 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.
17. Elvis’ Lloyds of London life insurance policy still has not been cashed in. Why? It is not illegal to fake your death as long as you don’t profit from it.
18. There was a helicopter hovering over Graceland just moments before Elvis was found dead. Did Elvis get on that helicopter? Did the helicopter drop off another body to take Elvis’ place? 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.
19. According to handwriting experts, Elvis’ own handwriting was on his death certificate/coroners report.
20. Some of Elvis’ closest friends were asked, by Vernon, not to attend the funeral.
21. Elvis’ father refused to have his son’s coffin draped with the American flag, traditionally given to all dead veterans. Did he know that the coffin did not contain his son’s body?
22. In December 1970, Elvis was inducted into the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) by President Nixon. Elvis had just been awarded one of America’s Ten Outstanding Young Men for his efforts to wipe out drugs. Elvis went undercover for the DEA and helped put one of America’s largest crime rings behind bars. This particular undercover operation was coded ‘Operation Fountain Pen’. Was Elvis really addicted to drugs…, or was he the ultimate actor after all? The U.S. Department of Justice’s Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington confirmed in a letter to Maria Columbus, president of The Elvis Special fan club, that Presley visited FBI headquarters on December 31, 1970 and was given a tour of FBI facilities. Two months prior to meeting with President Nixon, Elvis was presented with a CNOA Membership Certificate that reads: This is to certify that Elvis A. Presley is a member in good standing of the California Narcotics Officers Association. Once when Elvis was on stage, he wanted to prove to the audience that he was not strung out on drugs like everyone said he was. He then displayed a certificate to the audience and said, “This if from the International Narcotics Enforcement Association. This Certificate gives me special honors and a lifelong membership. I’ve been wearing a federal narcotics badge for six years. They don’t give you that if you’re strung out.” One of the fan letters states that several police uniforms were delivered to Graceland on August 15, 1977.
23. The Elvis estate demanded that no cameras be brought to the funeral.
24. One month prior to August 1977…, $1,000,000.00 was withdrawn from his personal checking account.
25. The medical examiner’s report says that the body was found in the bathroom in a rigor-mortised condition. The homicide report says that the body was found in the bedroom ‘unconscious’.
26. What about the tape – authenticated – that was sent to a top voice-identification expert, on which Elvis talked about things that did not occur before August 1977?
27. What about the mind-boggling picture taken in the poolhouse behind Graceland’s Meditation Gardens four months after the death of Presley and showing a man seated who looked exactly like Elvis? Mike Joseph took this photograph in January 1978 while on vacation and visiting Meditation Gardens. There is an audio recording of Mike Joseph stating that the person in that photograph is Elvis. Later, after a meeting with Joe Esposito and Al Strada, he changed his story. Now he says that he never stated that it was Elvis in the photograph even though he was recorded as saying it was.
28. “I may not look good tonight, but I’ll look good in my coffin,” said Presley on his last concert tour, 1977. At a different time 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.”
29. “If I should return you would not recognize me” is underlined in one of Elvis’ favorite books.
30. 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.
31. There are 663 FBI pages on Elvis, much of the material consists of files dated after August 1977.
32. Phone records show that Ginger Alden, Elvis’ girlfriend at the time of his alleged death, phoned the National Enquirer one to three hours before calling downstairs for help when she found Elvis in the bathroom floor. How did she know to call them one to three hours before there was anything to call about? Did she know that there was going to be a body in there later in the day?
33. What about the sightings, many by very credible people?
34. Elvis believed that he was chosen by God for something special. He thought he had special powers like, hands-on-healing. I think he may have had some special gifts other than his voice. Elvis was always studying about religion. He didn’t want to take any chances when it came to getting into the Kingdom of Heaven. One of his favorite books, which you will find on display at Graceland now, was The Passover Plot by Hugh Schonfield in 1966. The book is a story of how Jesus may have faked his death and came back 16 years later instead of being resurrected. Elvis may have faked his death and given up all worldly possessions in an effort to make it into the Kingdom of Heaven. Elvis once mentioned to a friend that he would like to become a Monk. After August 16, 1977, a man dressed as a Monk went into a popular entertainment club. Another customer reported that the face under the hood looked remarkably like Elvis Presley. As it turns out, the club was owned by a good friend of Elvis’.
35. There were orders by the Presley Estate that no cameras be brought to the funeral. However, one of Elvis’ relatives, Bobby Mann, managed to sneak one in. The picture he took appeared on the front of the National Enquirer. It is evident in the picture that it is not Elvis Presley.
36. 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.
37. Dee Presley, Elvis’ stepmother, said she received a call from someone sounding like Elvis, saying things only Elvis knew.
38. A picture taken September 23, 1984 shows Muhammad Ali, Reverend Jesse Jackson, and what appears to be Elvis Presley. When Muhammad Ali was in Fort Worth, Texas, toward the end of 1989, promoting his cologne, two people showed him the picture. As reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Ali identified the man in the picture with him as “My friend Elvis.” Also, in late 1989, a lady showed the picture to Elvis’ step-brother, Billy Stanley. Billy pointed the man out as being Elvis Presley. He said he wanted a copy of the picture to put on his office wall to prove that Elvis was not a racist.
39. Priscilla made wildly contradictory statements about where she was on the night of Elvis’ death. Elvis’ road manager let it slip that he was worried about Priscilla and daughter Lisa Marie at Graceland after Elvis’ death — a time period when Priscilla was SUPPOSED to be in Los Angeles.
40. Joe Esposito said, on the Geraldo show June 18, 1990, “In the first place, how can he commit suicide? He’s living in Kalamazoo, Michigan.” watch it on you tube.
I read this Phil Aitcheson interview whereby he states that both Ambulance Attendants at the death scene whose names were "Charlie Crosby" and "Ulysses Jones" claimed that it was not Elvis at the death scene (Ulysses was friends with Elvis and said that it was not Elvis). Later on Charlie Crosby was murdered (he was pushed out of an airplane) for running his mouth.
Therefore if it was not Elvis at the death scene, an "Elvis double" died in his place.
If Elvis used a "double" in his place (then it is obvious that he had preplanned to fake his death in advance ... some say as early as 1974).
Read Phil Aitcheson's interview below about both Ambulance Drivers (by the way Ulysses Jones also passed away).
Q - I find Ginger Alden's actions on the day of August 16th, 1977 to be rather odd. I've read that she did not immediately call for help.
A - Right. Plus she claimed to wake up in a bit of a stupor because she had taken some sort of sleeping medication and said she saw two guys carrying something heavy across the bedroom, during the course of the night. We interviewed Ulysses Jones, who was one of the former paramedics in the case, who told us in a taped telephone conversation that he knew it wasn't Elvis on the floor. He had known Elvis all his life and it didn't look like him. And, in fact he and partner Charlie Crosby, who was later killed for running his mouth. Come to find out, he met with an unfortunate accident...he was actually pushed out of an airplane, and it was murder.
Q - Who were these guys?
A - They were the paramedics that were called to the house that day to work on the body. They both went back to their firehouse telling their Captain and their superiors it was not Elvis. Their knees were shaking. They were scared to death. They were told not to repeat what they said. And they take the body into the hospital for this alleged autopsy that supposed to take place, but never did take place. They were supposed to have taken out stomach contents and other bodily parts that went to the Mayo Clinic for examination to determine what the cause of death could be on this particular cadaver and it came back with "MS" scrawled across the bottom of the report. It was pictured in The Presley Report. And the fact is, Elvis never had MS.
Q - How did you hear about this paramedic, Charlie Crosby's death?
A - Ulysses said he met with an unfortunate accident sometime after. Ulysses Jones is a retired State representative for the State of Tennessee. He was a paramedic at the time. He was on the team that was called to the house. There's questions about whether Vernon was there or Vernon drove up the driveway in a car and then came into the house. Some of the accounts aren't even straight on whether he rode in the ambulance with his son to the hospital or what was purportedly to be his son. There was talk about Lisa Marie riding around in golf carts at two o'clock in the morning on the evening that her daddy was supposed to have passed away. Those stories are completely inaccurate from everything we've seen.
Felton Jarvis was Elvis's producer for almost twenty years. He died, at age 46, in January 1981. He once told the following story to a friend of his and of Elvis'.
This shows that Elvis was tired of being himself (and wanted to leave the limelight). As a result I can see Elvis faking his death. Here is the conversation between Elvis and Felton Jarvis:
"A year and a half before Elvis died, in February, 1976, he recorded, for the last time, enough songs for an album of completely fresh material. RCA had been unable to get him into a studio, and they had finally set up a studio in the living room at Graceland. They cut 12 songs in eight days, and though Elvis never wrote his own material, he frequently recorded songs that were indicative of his state of mind. Some of the songs recorded in those sessions were: "Hurt"; "I'll Never Fall in Love Again"; "The Bitter They Are, The Harder They Fall"; and "Solitaire", which Elvis seemed fixated on, and which tells the story of a lonely existence. He also recorded "Danny Boy," his mother's favorite song, which he had been meaning to record for a long time.
On the last night, Felton Jarvis and Elvis walked outside and stood on the Graceland lawn. Elvis had said, "I'm so tired." "You need some rest," Jarvis had agreed. "That's not what I mean," Elvis had said. "I mean: I'm just so tired of being Elvis Presley."
NOTICE THAT IN THE AUTOPSY POSTMORTEM REPORT NO. A77-160 FROM BAPTIST MEMORIAL HOSPITAL, MEMPHIS, DATED AUGUST 16, 1977 THERE ARE SEVERAL FACTORS SHOWING THAT IT WAS NOT ELVIS! FIRST OF ALL, THIS REPORT SAYS THAT THE CORPSE HAD "MS"! YET ELVIS DOES NOT HAVE "MS"! THEN IT SAYS THAT THE CORPSE HAD CODEINE AT 10 TIMES THE PRESCRIBED MANNER (BUT NOT IN LETHAL RANGE)! YET ELVIS WAS ALLERGIC TO CODEINE! SO IT COULD NOT OF BEEN ELVIS!
Look at the Toxicology Report below, it says that the corpse had "MS". Yet Elvis does not have "MS"! Therefore it could not of been Elvis!
Now look below at the "Table 2 Serum Drug Levels Found in Elvis Presley at Autopsy" report. Toxicology tested positive for 10 separate prescription medications but showed negative for illicit drugs and alcohol. The only alarming pharmaceutical indicator, on its own, was codeine at 10 times the prescribed manner but not in lethal range. Elvis was allergic to codeine, yet they found codeine in the corpse! Therefore it could not of been Elvis!
Because the Toxicology Report appeared to contradict the Autopsy Report’s stated cardiac cause of death (see my post below), a prominent toxicologist was asked to review the findings. His opinion was:
Coupled with this toxicological data are the pathological findings and the reported history that the deceased had been mobile and functional within 8 hours prior to death. Together, all this information points to a conclusion that, whatever tolerance the deceased may have acquired to the many drugs found in his system, the strong probability is that these drugs were the major contribution to his demise.
So under "1. Toxicology Studies" below it states:
"In accordance with interpretations made by our consultants versed in therapeutic and toxic drug levels in body fluids and tissues, and in accordance with our interpretation of results on drug levels and their clinical signficance as recorded in the literature, it is our view that death in the case of Baptist Memorial Hospital A77-160 resulted from multiple drug ingestion (commonly now as "Polypharmacy"). Of particular note is the combination of codeine, ethchlorvynol and barbiturates detected in body fluids and tissues. The levels in the body fluids and tissues exceed some other known identifiiable multiple drug overdose cases where codeine has been implicated."
The Tennessee Board of Health then began an investigation into Elvis’s death which resulted in proceedings against Doctor Nick.
Evidence showed that during the seven and a half months preceding Elvis’s death — from January 1, 1977, to August 16, 1977 — Doctor Nick wrote prescriptions for Elvis for at least 8,805 pills, tablets, vials, and injectables. Going back to January 1975, the count was 19,012.
These numbers might defy belief, but they came from an experienced team of investigators who visited 153 pharmacies and spent 1,090 hours going through 6,570,175 prescriptions and then, with the aid of two secretaries, spent another 1,120 hours organizing the evidence.
The drugs included uppers, downers, and powerful painkillers such as Dilaudid, Quaalude, Percodan, Demerol, and Cocaine Hydrochloride in quantities more appropriate for those terminally ill with cancer
Doctor Nick admitted to this. His defense was because Elvis was so wired on pain killers, he prescribed these medications to keep Elvis away from dangerous street drugs, thereby controlling Elvis’s addiction — addiction being a disease.
One of the defense witnesses was Dr. Forest Torrent, a prominent California physician and a pioneer in the use of opiates in pain treatment who explained how the effects this level of codeine would have contributed to Elvis’s death.
Central to misconduct allegations was the issue of high codeine levels in Elvis at the time of death — codeine being the prime toxicological suspect as the pharmaceutical contributor. It was established that Elvis obtained codeine pills from a dentist the day before his death and Doctor Nick had no knowledge of it.
The jury bought it and Doctor Nick was absolved of negligence in directly causing Elvis Presley’s fatal event.

FRIEND FROM YESTERYEAR SPEAKS........
“My Jewish Heritage was made known by Larry Gellar on Elvis radio after 40 years On August 15, 2017. You now know how I felt about my Momma’s Jewish Heritage. It’s importance to Her and to me. I honored her when she died with the Star of David on her Grave Marker. I showed it to Larry Geller. When I was 18 I had my Birth certificate changed to the name my Momma gave me originally Aaron the first High Priest of Israel and the Brother of Moses. My Daddy when I was born changed my name from Aaron to ARON. But now I see it has been 40 years since I died. Daddy buried me and Momma at Graceland, the Home I bought for Her. I took care of business when I was 18 years old and had it changed back to what Momma gave me, Elvis Aaron but never told daddy. It was a secret Momma and I kept between us never revealed. When burying me and Momma at Graceland Daddy had no choice but to use the name I had put on my Birth Certificate in 1953, and so my name is not a misspelling. I lived my life as Elvis ARON Presley the “Image” I was to the World. But my real name Elvis Aaron Presley would only be seen after my death. Why did I pick that year? Why not later? READ “friendfromyesteryear’s book.. “ Death of a King” he’ll explain. Believe it or not he is the only person on Earth who knows why I chose to do what I did especially “WHEN” I did it. for it “INCREASED” the Value of my Gift Tremendously to Momma. But what saddens me is I don’t see “The Star of David” on her Marker at Graceland’s Meditation Gardens…why? Will someone please restore it to its proper place? Please see that my “His-Story” be corrected and my story told correctly. It’s all I ask. as I cannot do it on my own….only you can….please…TCB
Will it continue to be “Silenced” forever in “DEATH” as it was in Life?
When will this injustice be corrected?
When will “True Love” be shown for the poor boy from “Tupelo?”
Note the picture of the star of David on the front cover of this book “…Death of a King.” It’s laying down with its 6 points bent out of shape basically seen in a “Distressed Condition”….When will the DISTRESS be removed?
Will the injustice to Elvis and his Mother Gladys continue on?
The “Historical” record of Elvis undying Love for his Momma must always remain a part of the Story of his life. It was “Part & Parcel” of Who and What He was.
It’s up to us the fans…. MAKE KNOWN THE EXISTANCE OF THESE TWO BOOKS…
Pass the “Word” on never let it be said “We the Fans didn’t TCB….
The “Pen” is mightier than the “Sword.”….USE IT!…..TCB
A Message to “Graceland and EPE”…
“Restore” the last “Gift,” the “STAR OF DAVID,” which Elvis had ENGRAVED on his Momma’s Grave Marker when she passed away on August 14, 1958. This he gave in honor of her Jewish Heritage. It was “IMPORTANT” to him and WE THE FANS FEEL his wishes SHOULD BE RESPECTED.
Let the “TRUTH” of “The life of Elvis Aron Presley” be accurately told as the “STAR OF DAVID” which was originally on his Mother’s Grave Marker at “Forest Hills Cemetery” is restored to its proper place alongside the Christian Cross that adorns Gladys’ Grave Marker at Graceland’s Meditation Gardens,” Memphis Tennessee USA.,This was his last gift before he left the public.
This stone is at Graceland in the garage.
Do you have a favorite record or favorite movie of your father’s?
I love the ’70s era of music, mostly because I was there for that. And as far as the movies go, I’m very partial to “Love Me Tender” and “Jailhouse Rock.” I love those. I enjoy them all, but those are the ones I sort of feel he was really able to show his acting the way he wanted to at that time. I know those were kind of his favorites, too, for the same reasons, so I kind of feel the same way.

Documents that are apart of FBI files paint a picture of Elvis Presley that the public eye has previously been blind to. These same documents clearly show that Elvis was embroiled in a life and death situation before his tragic death. There is also reliable information to suggest that he was still alive at least 4 years after he was medically and legally certified dead!
Frederick Pro was in reality, a con man. He belonged to a group known as The Paternity. They were closely linked to organised crime. By the spring of the following year, the Presley estate had lost more than a million dollars (see the "Contract" between Frederick Peter Pro and Elvis Aron Presley below).
Before Elvis Presley wanted to sing, he wanted to be in law enforcement. By 1970, he had received many honorary and real law enforcement credentials. He was convinced that he had unique services that he could offer his country. In December that year, he flew to Washington DC. During the flight, Elvis wrote a letter to President Nixon. In the letter, he introduced himself and expressed his desire to be of any service to his country.
After much deliberation, it was decided by the president's office, that President Nixon will meet with Elvis Presley. Elvis was awarded the credentials that would make him a federal agent. He allowed, in turn, an agent to secretly be apart of his road crew from 1974 to 1976. What that agent investigated, no body will say.
Around the same time, Elvis began to show interest in spiritual and religious enlightenment. Despite being so widely recognised, he was able to keep this part of his personality a secret. The spiritual side was a secret by his own choice. His undercover alias, he kept a secret because he was duty bound.
His alliance with the government, the death threats and the fact that he allowed an agent to travel as part of his band, had created a conception amongst thousands of people that he might be part of the Witness Protect Program.
In March 1977, a full 3 months before Elvis died, he cashed in 3 life insurance policies, the total value being 2 million dollars. Shortly after his death, a private cheque account, with an excess of a million dollars had slipped of the grid. This has yet to be explained by anyone in the Elvis Presley Estate. There is still a fourth remaining policy for Elvis that is yet to be claimed, despite his death all those years ago. Could this be so in order to avoid insurance fraud because Elvis is still alive.
Various samples of Elvis's handwriting has emerged since his untimely death. On FBI documents, handwriting detailing a number of corrections have been closely matched, by several independent specialists to be his handwriting. How can this be if Elvis was already dead at the time these documents were released. Handwriting specialists also speculate that Elvis himself, filled in details on his death certificate.
Elvis had gotten severely embroiled in Mafia activities somewhere along the line. After a hit was ordered on him, President Nixon recommended he go into the Witness Protection Program. Elvis, however, was not convinced that his father and daughter would be safe. That was what stirred his brain to hatch a more secure plan. It was then decided that Elvis would have to die.
IS ELVIS ON FACEBOOK TODAY?
The false rumour online is that Jesse Garon Presley never died at birth but was adopted because Vernon and Gladys were too poor to keep two babies. Certificate of death (opposite ) disproves this entirely.
" .......... Vernon thought that this would be a good chance to locate Jesse's body, and bring it home as well, thus making sure that the family was properly together again.
Sometime, I believe it was about the middle of September, Vernon, along with several family members, made two different trips to Priceville Cemetary in Tupelo, in an attempt to locate Jesse's grave.
He had hired the services of a funeral home to relocate Jesse's body to Graceland, along with the rest of the family, if he were able to find the grave. Sadly, however, the ravages of time and the environment had swept away any remaining clues as to the location of the original grave.
It was never located, and Vernon, with a heavy heart,....... on the night of his second failed trip to Tupelo ....... announced ........ that they would have to settle on a memorial plaque, instead, to honor the memory of his second son.
I did see the tears in his eyes that night."
- Nancy Rooks from "Inside Graceland."
Would Vernon have went to the trouble of trying to locate Jesse`s grave twice if he knew he was still alive somewhere??
When everyone had finished viewing Elvis in the house, Nancy Rooks (Elvis' cook) and Al Strada went to pay their respects. As to what Elvis looked like Nancy said "I can only say that he did not look like the Evis I had known." She goes on further to say "His face and body both looked somewhat thinner, and I immediately noticed that he looked different in some way." So even Nancy says that the man in the casket doesn't look like Elvis (confirming that it was not Elvis in the casket)!!
Then Nancy says "Then it dawned on me what that difference was. He was dressed in a coat and tie, something I was not used to seeing him in." This confirms the comment I made that Elvis did not like to wear a tie (so in many pictures Elvis is seen not wearing a tie).
"I was left standing in front of Elvis, alone in my thoughts I have been asked many times what he looked like, and what my thoughts were at that moment. I'm not sure that I can do justice to either one of those questions.
As to what he looked like, I can only say that he did not look like the Elvis I had known. I want to say that he looked at peace, but I'm not sure that is what I saw, or what I WANTED to see. I had seen him fighting so many battles with various ailments and illnesses in the last few years and I wanted to know that he was now ok.
His face and body both looked somewhat thinner, and I immediately noticed that he looked different in some way. Then it dawned on me what that difference was. He was dressed in a coat and tie, something I was not used to seeing him in. it was a far cry from the casual clothes he was usually wearing when I would see him while he was alive."

ELVIS WANTED TO TOUR AUSTRALIA BUT HIS MANAGER COLONEL PARKER WOULDN'T LET HIM!!
Elvis Presley wanted to tour Australia but his manager Colonel Tom Parker wouldn’t let him.
Jerry Schilling was part of the “Memphis Mafia” and worked with Elvis Presley and Colonel Tom Parker. “I was at that late night meeting at the Las Vegas Hilton. Elvis wanted to tour
overseas. He wanted to go to Australia. He wanted to go to Japan. The Colonel said, “if you go I am not going to go with you”. Elvis said “that’s fine, you are fired”,” Jerry tells Noise11.com.
Colonel Tom was a powerful person in the music industry back then and even Elvis couldn’t beat him. “When Elvis tried to get a tour going no-one would touch him because they were afraid of the Colonel,” Jerry said. “They had the relationship with the Colonel. They respected the Colonel. They did not want to go behind his back. The bottom line Elvis could not stretch the way he wanted to because of the confines of the business”.
The reason Colonel Tom would not let Elvis tour outside the USA was because Colonel Tom was a illegal alien. “We didn’t know that while Elvis was alive,” Jerry says. “That came out after Elvis passed away. One of the Memphis mafia guys called the Colonel and said “Colonel, you never told us you were from Holland”. The Colonel said, “well you never asked”.”
Colonel Tom made Elvis a star but after a decade Elvis was growing tied of him. “I think creatively Elvis outgrew the Colonel and that’s what caused a major conflict,” he says.
“Musically and acting wise Elvis didn’t want to do at 30 or 35 what he was doing at 19 and 20 (nor would anybody else). I lived and worked with Elvis and I was with Colonel Parker one day a week. As a young guy I learned a lot about the relationship between and artist and a manager. The manager must understand the creative needs of his artist. He doesn’t have to bring him ‘Sgt Pepper’. That is for the artist to develop and for him to get it done. The artist must understand what the manager needs to do to promote their artistic work.
They need to understand each other’s role to make the whole thing successful”.
Schilling says that despite his faults, the Colonel was a genius. “Colonel Parker is the most misunderstood person in the music industry,” he says. “He was brilliant in a simple way.
He could outsmart any mogul or film company owner. Don’t ever say Colonel Parker wasn’t a brilliant guy. Creativity was not his best quality. He was the go-to bad guy. Colonel Parker was an honest guy. I used to dread going to work for him but at the end of the day it was pretty damn interesting. I became very close to him. I was the closest person to him in the last 20 years of his life”.
Jerry Schilling was in Australia earlier this year for Q&A’s about Elvis.
