Elvis Presley - Alive and Singing Today?

***** the many accounts detailing the death of Elvis Presley in 1977, speculation is still rife about whether 'The K*****g' 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 doubting 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 ***** and burial, ***** can observe a number of glaring inconsistencies. First of all, the name of Elvis Aron Presley is spelt incorrectly on ***** headst*****e. 'Aron' is ***** 'Aaron.' This seems unusu*****y 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 ***** ***** 'Aron.' The fact that the ***** error hasn't been corrected seems odd since a headstone is visible to more people as *****y visit Gracel***** than a birth certificate (http://www.geocities.com/n*****hville/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 be buried ***** his mother. It is plausible that his helpers, knowing him to be alive still, buried the 'fake' Elvis beside ***** ***** and grandmother.

Elvis was known to sport calluses on his hands. He is ********** to have developed these calluses 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 qualities do not correspond with Elvis's features. Also, one of the *****'s sideburns kept falling off. ***** 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. Up***** death, Elvis was reported to weigh 250 pounds. But, ***** ***** pallbearers carried the coffin, it weighed 900 pounds. The 'Wax Body' theory currently circulating posits the possibility that a wax body was made in the likeness of Elvis and put in ***** c*****f*****. The extra ***** of the c*****fin is a result of *****n air-conditioning unit installed in the coffin to keep ***** 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 death certificate. It has Elv***** down as 170 pounds *****stead of the 250 ***** ********** is known ***** have weighed. In life, Elvis's vanity was renowned. It
