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 death and lives a considerably quieter, simpler existence today. This paper explores the evidence proffered by supporters in doubt*****g the plausibility of Elvis Presley's death.

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

Elvis's 'body' has been buried beside his ***** and grandmother. However, ***** the world knew Elvis to be alive, he was adamant that ***** wished to be buried beside his mother. It is plausible that his helpers, knowing him to be alive *****, buried the 'fake' ***** beside his father and *****. Therefore, this would save the spot next ***** his mother for when the 'real' Elvis dies. The actual body of Elvis in the c*****f***** is also said to not resemble ***** 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 h*****ds. The body in the ***** 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.geocities.com/nashville/opry/5317/elvis2.html).

Then there is the inordinate weight gain. Up***** death, Elvis was reported to weigh 250 pounds. *****, when the pallbearers carried the coffin, it weighed 900 pounds. The 'Wax Body' *****ory currently circulating pos*****s the ********** ***** a w*****x body was made in the likeness of ***** and put in the c*****f*****. The extra weight of the coffin is a result of an air-conditioning unit installed in the ***** to keep ***** wax ***** from melting. T***** theory does provide an explanation for all the little discrepancies aforementioned. Then there are the discrepancies in the death certificate. A different weight figure is *****ed on the death certificate. ***** has Elvis down as 170 pounds *****stead ***** the 250 pounds ***** is known to ***** weighed. In life, Elvis's vanity was renowned. It
