Elvis Presley - Alive and Singing Today?

***** the many accounts detailing the death of Elvis Presley in 1977, speculation is still rife about whether 'The King' really died. Many people believe that ***** Presley faked his own ***** and lives a consider*****bly quieter, simpler existence today. This paper explores the evidence proffered by supporters in doubt*****g the plausibility of Elvis Presley's death.

There are three distinct ways one can look at this mystery. One can study ***** circumstances surrounding Elvis's de*****h and burial, the circumstances leading up to his death, and the occurrences that occurred immediately after his death. If one investigates the actual ***** of his death and burial, ***** can observe a number of glaring inconsistencies. First of all, the name of Elvis Aron Presley is spelt incorrectly on his headst*****e. 'Aron' is ***** 'Aaron.' Th***** seems unusually careless since a similar spelling error was committed on Elvis's birth certificate when he ***** born. But his father took great pains to amend the birth certificate, changing ***** to 'Aron.' The fact that the ***** error hasn't been corrected ***** odd since a headstone is visible to more people as they visit Gracel***** than a birth certificate (http://www.geocities.com/nashville/opry/5317/elvis2.html).

Elvis's 'body' has been buried beside his father and grandmother. However, ***** the world knew Elvis to be alive, he was adamant that ***** wished to ***** buried ***** his mother. It is plausible that ***** helpers, knowing him ***** be alive *****, ***** the 'fake' Elvis beside his ***** and grandmother. Therefore, this would save the spot next to his mother for when the 'real' Elvis dies. The actual body of Elvis in the c*****fin is also said to not resemble ***** King' at all. Elvis was known ***** sport calluses on his hands. He is ********** to have developed these ***** through being an 8th degree black belt. However, the body in the coff***** possessed soft, smooth hands. The body in the coffin possessed arched eyebrows and a pug nose. These qu*****lities do not correspond with Elvis's features. Also, one of the *****'s sideburns kept falling off. It was so obvious that a hairdresser had to glue it back on ***** body later (http://www.geoc*****ies.com/nashville/opry/5317/elvis2.html).

Then there is the inordinate weight gain. Upon death, Elvis was reported ***** weigh 250 pounds. *****, when ***** pallbearers carried the coffin, it weighed 900 *****. The 'Wax Body' *****ory currently circulating posits the possibility that a wax ***** was made in the likeness of Elvis and put in ***** coff*****. ***** extra ***** of the coffin is a result of *****n air-conditioning unit installed in the ***** to keep the wax body from melting. This theory does provide an explanation for all the little discrepancies aforementioned. Then ***** are the discrepancies in the death certificate. A different weight figure is *****ed on the ***** certificate. It has Elvis down as 170 pounds *****stead of the 250 pounds Elvis is known ***** ***** weighed. In life, *****'s vanity was renowned. *****
