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 ***** 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 can study ***** circumstances surrounding Elvis's death ***** burial, the circumstances leading up to his *****, and the occurrences that occurred immediately after his death. If one investigates the actual ***** ***** his death ***** *****, one ***** observe a number of glaring inconsistencies. First of all, ***** name of Elvis Aron Presley is spelt incorrectly on ***** headst*****. 'Ar*****' is spelt 'Aaron.' This 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*****' ***** 'Aron.' The fact that ***** spelling error hasn't been corrected seems odd since a *****one 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 ***** buried beside his ***** and grandmother. However, when the world knew Elvis to be alive, he was adamant that he wis*****d to ***** buried beside his mother. It is plausible that his helpers, knowing him to be alive *****, buried the 'fake' Elvis beside ***** father and *****. Therefore, this would save the spot next to his mother for when the 'real' Elvis dies. The actual body of Elvis in the coff***** 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 qualities do not correspond with Elvis's features. Also, one of ***** *****'s sideburns kept falling off. ***** ***** so obvious that a hairdresser had to glue it back on the 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. *****, when ***** pallbearers carried the coffin, it *****ed 900 pounds. The 'Wax Body' theory currently circulating posits the possibility that a wax body was made in the likeness of ***** and put in ***** c*****fin. ***** 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 aforementi*****d. Then ***** are the discrepancies in the death certificate. A different weight figure is noted on the death certificate. It has Elv***** down as 170 pounds *****stead of the 250 pounds Elvis is known to ***** weighed. In life, Elvis's vanity was renowned. *****
