Elvis Presley - Alive and Singing Today?

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

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

Elvis's 'body' has been buried beside his ***** and grandmother. However, ***** the world knew Elvis to be alive, he ***** adamant that ***** wished to ***** buried beside his mother. It is plausible that his helpers, knowing him ***** be alive *****, ***** the 'fake' ***** beside his father 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 ***** not resemble 'The King' at all. Elvis was kn***** to sport c*****uses on his hands. He is believed to have developed these calluses through being an 8th degree black belt. However, the body in ***** coffin 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 ***** body's sideburns kept falling off. ***** ***** so obvious that a hairdresser had to glue it back on the body later (http://www.geocities.com/nashville/opry/5317/elvis2.html).

Then there is the inordinate weight gain. Up***** death, Elvis was reported to weigh 250 pounds. But, ***** the pallbearers carried the coffin, it weighed 900 *****. The 'Wax Body' *****ory currently circulating pos*****s the possibility ***** a w*****x ***** was made in the likeness of ***** and put in ***** coff*****. The extra ***** of the *****in is a result of an air-conditioning unit installed in the c*****fin to keep the wax body from melting. T***** 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 to have weighed. In life, ********** vanity w***** reno*****ned. *****
