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

There are three distinct ways one can look at this mystery. One ***** study ***** circumstances surrounding Elvis's de*****h ***** burial, the circumstances leading up to his death, and the occurrences that occurred immediately after ***** death. If one investigates the actual ***** of his ***** ***** burial, ***** can observe a number of glaring inconsistencies. First of all, ***** name of Elvis Aron Presley is spelt incorrectly on his headstone. 'Aron' is ***** 'Aaron.' Th***** seems unusu*****y careless since a similar spelling error was committed on *****'s birth certificate when he ***** born. But his father took great pains to amend the ***** certificate, changing 'Aar*****' ***** 'Aron.' The fact that ***** ***** error hasn't been corrected seems odd since a headstone 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 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 *****, buried the 'fake' ***** beside ***** ***** 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*****f***** is also said ***** not resemble ***** King' at all. Elvis was kn***** to sport c*****uses on his hands. He is believed ***** 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 ***** 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 ***** pallbearers carried the coffin, it *****ed 900 pounds. The 'Wax Body' *****ory currently circulating posits the possibility ***** a wax ***** was made in the likeness of ***** and put in the c*****fin. The extra ***** of the coffin is a result of *****n air-conditioning unit installed in the coffin to keep ***** wax body from melting. This 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 noted on the ***** certificate. It has Elvis down as 170 pounds *****stead of the 250 pounds ***** is known ***** ***** weighed. In life, Elvis's vanity was renowned. *****
