Elvis Presley - Alive and Singing Today?

***** the many accounts detailing the death of Elvis ***** in 1977, speculation is still rife about whether 'The King' really died. Many people believe that Elvis 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 ***** Presley's death.

***** are three distinct ways one can look at this mystery. One can study the 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 circumstances ***** his death and burial, one can observe a number of glaring inconsistencies. First of all, the name of Elvis Aron Presley is spelt incorrectly on ***** headst*****. 'Ar*****' is spelt 'Aaron.' ***** seems unusually careless since a simil*****r spelling error was committed on Elv*****'s birth certificate when he was born. But his father took great pains to amend the ***** certificate, changing ***** to '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/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 was adamant that he wished to ***** buried beside his mother. It is plausible that ***** helpers, knowing him to be alive still, buried the 'fake' ***** beside his father and grandmother. Therefore, this would save the spot next ***** his mother for when the 'real' Elvis dies. The actual body of Elvis in the c*****fin is also said to not resemble 'The King' at all. Elvis was known to sport calluses on his hands. He is believed ***** have developed these calluses through being an 8th degree black belt. However, the body in ***** 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 ***** body's sideburns kept falling off. It ***** 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, when the pallbearers carried the coffin, it *****ed 900 pounds. The 'Wax Body' theory currently circulating posits the possibility that a wax ***** was made in the likeness of Elvis and put in the coff*****. The 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 aforementi*****d. Then there 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 ***** the 250 ***** Elvis is known ***** have weighed. In life, *****'s vanity w***** reno*****ned. It
