elvis alive?

The only time I feel alive… is when I’m in front of my audience, my people. That’s the only time I really feel like I’m human.

Long after I’m gone, what I did today will be heard by someone. I just want them to get the best of what I had. (Elvis Presley)

Is Elvis Alive ?

There are many reasons to believe that Elvis Presley is dead. When the only arguments to believe otherwise come from crazed fans and supermarket tabloids, it is easy to dismiss the possibility that Elvis is still among us. However, the circumstances surrounding Elvis’ alleged death are quite mysterious and beg closer attention. As it turns out, there are many concrete reasons to believe that Elvis is still alive.

The Gravesite.
Elvis’ name is misspelled on his headstone. Elvis’ full name is Elvis Aron Presley, but on his grave his middle name is spelled incorrectly with 2 a’s. His father would not have let this happen. When Elvis was born, his name was misspelled on his birth certificate, and his father went to great lengths to get it put right. The unique spelling of Elvis’ name was important to his family.

Elvis’ current resting place is in between his father and his grandmother and not next to his mother where he had adamantly requested. It is doubtful that the people close to him would allow these things to happen. Elvis is a superstitious man, enough so that he wouldn’t tempt fate by putting his real name on a tombstone, or violate the ground next to his mother until he was ready to be placed there for good.

Death Certificate.
Elvis was very vain, and he was embarrassed about his recent weight gain, an astonishing fifty pounds in the month before his so-called death. Even though he weighed about 250 pounds at the time of his death, his death certificate lists him at a spry 170 pounds. The original death certificate disappeared, and the current death certificate is dated 2 months after his alleged death.

The Wax Body Theory.
This argument is very convincing when the facts are considered. Elvis’ coffin required several pall bearers because it weighed 900 pounds. Attendants of the funeral reported that the air around the coffin was rather cool. It is suspected that the coffin contained an air conditioning unit to keep a wax body cool, a wax body that was a replica of Elvis designed to fool funeral-goers. And how did the Presley family get a 900 pound, custom made coffin ready for a funeral that was held on the day after his death? It takes a lot of time to build such an elaborate coffin.

And why was the funeral so quickly? Some say that the immediacy was intended to make it as difficult as possible for the people who were Elvis’ biggest fans to attend the proceedings. It could be a concern that they might recognize the flaws in the wax replica.

Elvis was an 8th degree black belt whose hands were rough with calluses, yet the body in the coffin had hands that were soft and pudgy. The body in the coffin had a pug nose and arched eyebrows {unlike Elvis} and most importantly, 1 of the sideburns on the corpse was loose and falling off. A hairdresser later reported gluing the sideburn back on the body.

Unusual Behavior.
Two hours after Elvis’ death was announced publicly, a man who reportedly looked remarkably like Elvis purchased a ticket for Buenos Aeries, paid in cash, and used the name John Burrows: the same name Elvis had used as an alias several times before.

Elvis had a few books that were considered to be his most prized possessions. He had a bible, several pharmaceutical books, books on death, and most importantly Chiro’s Book of Numbers and The Autobiography of Yogi which I will explain more about later. After Elvis’s death was announced, these books disappeared and were never recovered.

In the weeks preceding his alleged death, Elvis’ actions were not those of a man who was about to embark on an extensive United States tour. He ordered no brand new suits despite having gained fifty pounds since his last tour, and he bid adios at his last show in HI . He had never done this before. Adios, like the French adieu, has the significance of being a final good-bye as opposed to an I’ll be seeing you on my next tour kind of good-bye.

Others were intrigued by Elvis’ decision to sign a lucrative TV deal with NBC that would cover the tour. It was unprecedented for a network to pay such a large amount up front, in cash, for such a deal. Many wonder why Elvis even agreed to the deal since his vanity discouraged him from making public appearances on account of his weight gain.

RCA showed uncanny and unbelievable foresight by mass producing millions of Elvis’ current and previous recordings and merchandise. This is standard practice for an act that is about to go on tour, but the numbers in this case were beyond reasonable expectations. The announcement of Elvis’ death caused record sales to skyrocket.

Elvis did other unusual things that created suspicion. First, he fired several employees that he had relied upon for a long time. Also, 2 days before his alleged death, Elvis telephoned a friend of his named Miss Foster. He told her that he wasn’t planning on going on the upcoming tour. She asked him if he had canceled it, and he said that he had not. When she asked if he was ill, he said that he was fine, and that she should not ask any more questions or tell anyone anything, and that she should not believe anything she read. He told her that his troubles would all soon be over, and that he would call her in a few weeks. The author of Elvis Where Are You? writes that Miss Foster took a polygraph test regarding this story, and that she was not lying.

The day after Elvis’ alleged death, a woman named Lucy De Barbon, a former lover of Elvis, received a single rose in the mail. The card indicated that the flower was from El Lancelot. This had been her pet name for Elvis, and it was a name that no 1 else had knowledge. Flowers can’t be sent from beyond the grave. This was Elvis’ way of letting her know that he was not dead, even though he did not want to be found.

Chiro’s Book of Numbers.
Elvis had a fascination with numerology, an interest he fed by reading Chiro’s Book of Numbers. The theory that Elvis orchestrated his death is further supported when considering the significance of the date of his alleged death. The date in question is Aug 16, 1977. By adding the numbers in the date, 8, 16, and 1977, you get 2001. This is the title of Elvis’ favorite movie in which the hero plans his immortality in the bathroom. Elvis spent a considerable amount of time doing the same: planning his afterlife on the toilet.. Elvis spent so much time in the bathroom that he had his toilet converted into a reclining comfy chair. Coincidentally, the bathroom is also where Elvis’ body was reportedly found.

Given Elvis’ religious beliefs, he had a fascination with things that come in threes, for example, father, son, and holy ghost. The sum of the digits from his favorite film (2+0+0+1) is three. Let’s consider the triad of the repetition of the number 24. 2001 (favorite film) less 1977 (year of death) is 24. The 2 numbers from the day of death (8/16) when added up equal 24. The sum of the digits in the year of death (1+9+7+7) also equals 24. That is three occurrences of the number twenty four which is divisible by 3, and when divided by 3 the result, eight has a perfect cubed root (2x2x2=8).

Elvis loved numerology, and when you consider the numeric significance of the date of his alleged death, it is clear that if indeed he did plan to fake his death, he could not have chosen a better date.

Elvis had many reasons to fake his death.It has been said that Elvis’ life was in danger. He had recently lost $10,000,000 in an airplane/real estate deal with a CA based organization called the Fraternity that had links to the Mafia. It is speculated that he corroborated with the government to expose the organized crime ring in exchange for protection, perhaps in the form of a brand new life and identity compliments of the Witness Protection Program.

Elvis was a prisoner of his own fame. He had many other reasons to leave his life behind. Because of his incredible popularity he recieved several death threats, and he was concerned about the safety of his ex-wife and daughter. Sometimes when he wanted to leave Graceland he would send look-alikes out to distract would be followers. Elvis was also known to ride in the trunk of someone else’s car to avoid being seen. Once, when he fell ill in Las Vegas, he couldn’t get proper medical attention because the hospital was overwhelmed by fans.

At the time of his alleged death, Elvis thought he was nearing the end of his career. He saw his self as forty two with greying hair, overweight, and he thought his voice was starting to weaken,. He was going down hill, and he was too proud to go out with a whimper. He would never want his fans to see him in such an unhealthy condition.

Elvis had shown a fascination with death on several occasions. In the days leading up to his alleged death he was reported to have visited funeral homes at odd hours of the night with close friends. Was he doing research? Elvis once faked his death by setting up an elaborate shooting in which a would be killer fired blanks at Elvis who had a blood pack which he discharged. It was Elvis’ intention to see how the people closest to him would react to his death. Perhaps what he learned convinced him to do it for real.

Finally, 1 of Elvis’ favorite books is the spiritual Autobiography of Yogi. One of the central themes of this book is the relinquishing of one’s wealth and earthly possessions to achieve spiritual oneness. Elvis could do this, as well as address his other concerns of sanity and safety by faking his death and living in exile.

Elvis had the means to fake his own death. He’s accused of destroying himself with drugs. In reality, Elvis was a pharmaceutical expert. He took a lot of drugs, but he had knowledge what he was doing and was extremely careful. He had knowledge what drugs he could self-administer to create a deathlike state. Also Elvis’ experience with the martial arts was such that he could very slow his heart rate and breathing in order to feign death.

Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker, had once created a brand new identity for himself. He came to America as an illegal immigrant from Holland, but through various connections managed to create a brand new identity complete with a passport, birth certificate, drivers license, and social security number. He would have known how to give Elvis a second life.

Aswell as Elvis’ ties to the government through his testimony against the Fraternity, Elvis was known to interact with the President of the U.S.. He was reported in government documents to use the name John Burrows as an alias when he wanted to travel. Some people believe that Elvis worked for the government as a drug agent. He did, after all have extensive contact with many people in the music business who, as we know, tend to dabble in illegal substances. And, of course, we must allow that Elvis’ connections to the government gave him access to the Witness Protection Program. If they can turn the Simpsons into the Thompsons, they can relocate anybody.

Many believe that Elvis couldn’t have given up performing completely. Just imagine, after a while the desire to perform would grow once he started his life in exile. The story of Orion supports the theory that Elvis attempted a secret comeback.

Shortly after Elvis’ alleged death, a masked singer by the name of Orion emerged on the scene. He was big like Elvis, and he sang just like Elvis. Because of the mask no 1 could tell his true identity. One fan described seeing Orion from near the stage. She claims that Orion left the stage between songs, and when he appeared moments later the sweat was gone from his armpits and back and she thought that his costume looked slightly different. After the song he left the stage, and the original Orion returned.

Another fan described how she rushed into a tour bus at an Orion show only to see 2 Orions in the back of the bus. She claimed that 1 ducked into the bathroom before she could get a good look at him, but he appeared to look like Elvis Presley.

What’s even more remarkable is the fictional story called Orion that was written by Gail Brewer-Georgio about a legendary performer who had several identities and wanted to fake his death. The story was written and submitted to the William Morris Agency for publication consideration after Elvis’ alleged death and before the real Orion ever performed. As it turns out, there are many ways in which the real Orion mimicked the events as described in the book. For example, the performers’ managers had the same name. Also, without knowing it, Brewer-Georgio wrote of events in Orion that had actually taken place in Elvis’ life. It was a case of life imitating art.

Picking up the Pieces.
In 1981, 20/20 did an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the alleged death of Elvis Presley. The investigative report was very convincing. Oddly enough, within 2 weeks of the report, the singer, Orion, disappeared and was never heard from again. The book, Orion disappeared from shelves across the country. It had been recalled by the publisher which was associated with the William Morris Agency. Incidentally, the William Morris Agency is the same agency that represented Elvis.

It seems that Elvis Presley is worth more lifeless than alive. By faking his death and relocating with a brand new identity he’s safe from his fans and the Fraternity, the government can make a solid case against the organized crime ring, and RCA, Elvis’ family, and Elvis’ management can all reap immense financial benefits from the attention. That is… except for 1 benefit….after nearly twenty five years no 1 has collected on his life insurance policy.

Why ?????

During his last concert tour in 1977, Elvis talked of not looking good tonight, but, he would look good in his coffin. He made comments of being tired of living as he was and how it was going to change. He told of how he would like to be just himself instead of an image.

On Aug 16th 1977, at 8:00 A.M., Elvis told Ginger Alden that he was going into the bathroom to read. (This bathroom/lounge had it’s own back entrance.) For the next 6 hours no 1 saw him. Elvis signed for a special delivery letter at 9:30 A.M. At 2:00 P.M. Ginger Alden found the apparent body of Elvis lying on the floor in front of his chair, where he had been reading. She called Al Strada who in turn called Joe Esposito. George Nichopoulous (aka Dr. Nick) was then telephoned. Joe called the fire department, unit 6. The ambulance arrived at Graceland at 2:33 P.M. Paramedics administered CPR, despite rigor mortis. The body was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital at 2:48 P.M. By 3:00 P.M. Elvis’ family members and friends were informed of his death. Public announcement was given at 3:30 P.M.

August 17th, the body was brought back to Graceland for family viewing. The public viewing was from 3:00 P.M. to 6:30 P.M. On Aug 18th,1977. Tennesse Governor Ray Blanton ordered flags to be flown at half-mast for the duration of the funeral procession. At midday the Graceland gates swung open, a white Cadillac hurse rolled through them, followed by sixteen white Cadillac limousines.

How could it take twenty minutes for paramedics to drive sixteen blocks to Graceland if the call came in at 2:33 P.M.? The Medical Examiner’s Report states that the body was found with rigor mortis, while the law enforcement report states unconcious. Why would anyone try to give CPR to a rigor mortised body ? The Maine report listed the body as weighing eighty pounds lighter then Elvis’ actual weight. How could Elvis have passed a physical exam just prior to Aug 16th if his heart was so enlarged ? How could he have played raquetball for several hours on Aug 16th, just before his death ?

ABC’s 1979 program on the cover up of Elvis’ death stated that all the stomach contents were destroyed. Bill Burkin in his book Elvis World states that officials at Babtist Memorial Hospital had assured him that the stomach contents had been shipped to a CA lab to be examined and then on to a lab in UT , and then ? There are rumors of Elvis’ death being caused by a heart attack, drug overdose, suffocation in carpeting, suicide and even cancer ! Persons in attendance at Graceland at the time of death do not agree on the color of pajamas Elvis was wearing or the posistion of the body.

Why did Vernon ask many people NOT to attend the funeral but to come a week later ? Why did Vernon refuse to accept the flag which is usually given to lifeless war veterans ? Why did not Elvis have any brand new jumpsuits made during 1977 ? The handwriting on the death certificate matched Elvis’ own writing !

Elvis was very aware of which presribed drugs didn’t mix well with others. Elvis had glaucoma, and Dexedrine, a drug not to be taken with that condition, was listed as being in his system. Who would prescribe it and why would he take it ? Whose body was autopsied ? Funeral homes do not usually keep solid copper coffins in stock. These coffins weigh in the area of 300 pounds and usually take 2 months to receive once ordered. This coffin seemed to have been ready.
Monte Nicholson, a nineteen year veteran of the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department, wrote a novel called The Presley Arrangement. This novel tells the story of a body that is autopsied, a man resembling Elvis. The man had passed away of cancer. The body is later returned for private burial, to the man’s own family. The man’s family are paid to remain silent about the incident. Nicholson explains a government connection. In a 1989 radio interview Nicholson said that even if he had knowledge there was an FBI connection and was told not to say anything, he COULD NOT say. Nicholson also claimed that if he had knowledge the answer to the question, and says he does, he won’t disclose his knowledge. He said that if Elvis is alive that his book is pretty close to the truth of what REALLY happened.

Was Elvis a DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) agent ? Elvis can be seen wearing a DEA Staff jacket in several photographs, including 1 taken in Jun of 1977, approximately 6 weeks before his death. Also Elvis was wearing a jogging suit with the DEA logo on it during the early morning hours of Aug 16th 1977.
When Elvis met with President Richard Nixon he said he had been studying the drug culture for over ten years, he could get into any culture group and be accepted. Elvis said he had become alot from the country and he wanted to repay in some way. It would have been a dangerous job and 1 that an entertainer such as Elvis would not have HAD to do unless he chose to. Many DEA agents pose as drug users and pushers in their undercover work. Elvis could get to anyone if he appeared to be a user. In the book Elvis: What Happened? 1 of the guys wondered if Elvis was ever as whacked out as he seemed to be. Maybe he’s a great actor after all. Perhaps he deserves an Oscar.

Death threats were issued against Elvis and his family. Those who had leveled those threats had actually broken into Graceland. At times, the FBI were called. Deputy Narcotics Director John Finlator arranged for Elvis to come to his office under the name of John Burrows. Finlator did not want to give Elvis a badge but the President reversed the decision.

On Dec 21st of 1970, Elvis met with President Richard Nixon in the oval office, WA , D.C. Elvis had written a letter requesting a meeting and expressed his concerns about the drug culture, hippie elements, the SDS and other groups who were against the establishment. When Finlator finally gave Elvis the badge and promised to issue him consultant credentials, Elvis was overcome with emotion and his eyes became misty. Ten days later he met with the FBI. On the same day, President Nixon wrote Elvis a thank you. Elvis wrote to the President and said, I can and will do more good, if I were made a Federal Agent at large, and I will help out by doing it my way.

Elvis was known to be in his bedroom for weeks, seeing no one. (There was a back staircase at Graceland.) Elvis could sneak out whenever he needed to.
Department of the Treasury-Bob Pritchett says that during the years of ’74, ’75, and ’76 Mr. Presley provided 1 of our undercover agents, who was a musician, a job cover. Undercover agents appear to have other occupations. None of Elvis’ group of friends had knowledge of this agent and the role he played in setting up his cover. Since he had an undercover agent in his group from ’74-’76, when did he find time to use drugs himself? Elvis was very good at keeping secrets and living a double life.

Elvis talked with President Carter 2 weeks before his death. It involved aid to a friend. On Aug 16, 1977, President Carter issued this tribute:
Elvis Presley’s death deprives our country of a part of itself. He was unique and irreplaceable. More than twenty years ago he burst upon the scene with an impact that was unprecedented and will probably never be equaled. His music and his personality, fusing the styles of white country and black rhythm and blues, permanently changed the face of American popular culture. His following was immense and he was a symbol of good humor of his country.
This was a formal statement, when a celebrity’s death is usually only commented on. He had talkedn to Nixon and Carter both shortly before the day he passed away.
In the Sept 1988 issue of American Karate magazine, Ed Parker tells of a time when a terrorist group threatened Elvis’ life to make him an example of how they could get to famous people. They threatened to plant a bomb in 1 of the gifts offered to Elvis at a concert. This was a threat as long as he was alive, and his family were targets also.
Elvis always had law enforcement officials around him. John O’Grady, who was earlier in charge of NARC Divisions of the LAPD, was 1 of them. He also hired Dick Grob, a former sargeant with the Palm Springs Law enforcement. He was surrounded by at least 2 lawmen in top security positions. Elvis was in danger. The hoax may have been the only way out! History will prove Elvis to be an American hero beyond being an American entertainer.

With all the Elvis lookalikes, he could actually walk around using disguises and get away with it. Who would be looking for him anyway, when he’s supposedly dead? Before 1977, there was an Elvis lookalike, sound alike at a Memphis theatre. Elvis put on his best Elvis outfit, strolled in and mingled with the clones, doing his best Hey, baby. Afterwards, he came back to Graceland laughing. He tried out and lost!
Elvis and his mother’s bodies were moved to the Meditation Gardens for burial, after 3 men tried to break into the crypt. Graceland was rezoned to permit burials at the estate. In the 1989 Orion’s Farewell to the King, the King says I passed away once. I had to be willing to give up everything, even the will to live. The last recording session at Graceland was The Last Farewell.
There have been many sightings at various places including Graceland. There are some escape routes at Graceland that people do not know about.
In a syndicated newspaper across the nation on Jun 5, 1990, an article headlined Elvis Lives, At Least On Census Form. The Census Bureau reported in 1990 that Elvis returned a questionaire to the bureau office in Huntsville, AL . It was noticed by census workers who were screening forms for completednesss.
Late Night with Ross Shafer (August 1988) had a survey that showed that out of 30,000 people polled, approximately 84% believe Elvis is alive.

On Mon, Aug 22, 1988, Harold Schuitmaker, in an item of the Detroit News, said Elvis is Alive and Living in Kalamazoo. Schuitmaker was a well known MI politician and resident of Paw Paw (15 miles from Kalamazoo).
The masked singer Orion was at the McMinnville Civic Center and a fan said that she felt that the man onstage and the 1 who signed autographs were different people. People have reported that someone sounding like Elvis called them on the phone and some hung up because they couldn’t believe it.
A book titled Elvis: Where Are You? came out of Wilton Manors, FL around August, 1982 under the name of Al Jefferies. The premise of the book was that Elvis hoaxed his death. Kelly Burgess, a former assistant editor and feature writer with the Detroit News, claimed to have seen Elvis in Kalamazoo, MI . She’s not living now.
In 1988, Heartbreak Hotel starred David Keith as Elvis. (The film had the support of EP Enterprises.) A soundtrack album thanked Jerry Schilling and a special thanks to J.B.
In 1987’s Robo Cop, a cop is killed, but did not die. He returns as Robo Cop-a superman hero. It was filmed in MI . During that time radio stations got calls from a man sounding like Elvis Presley. There have been lots of sightings there and it was also on his final concert tour. Is this possibly a message film?
March 18, 1990, an article on Robo Cop, in the Detroit News told of Robo Cop speaking to a Boys and Girls club against drugs. It was a 3 month long anti-drug campaign organized by the FBI, Orion Home Video of New York, and the Boys Club of America. This Robo Cop was not the same actor as in the movie-his true identity was not revealed. he was a special agent helping the FBI fight the war on drugs. His suit was bullet-proof. During filming, some people saw a man looking like an older Elvis.
In Mac and Me, a film from 1988, a young alien is lost and at the end the family drives away in an old pink Cadillac convertible. A balloon caption says We’ll be back. The sound track is on Curb Records, which is the same label as Spelling on the Stone. There were some song lyrics which were: Tired of being myself, being different from everyone else, somehow you had knowledge I needed your help, be my friend forever. I never found my star in the night; living my dream was far from sight. There was a scene in the movie where Eric asks Debbie Why did not you tell him that you saw him (the alien)? She says, Because no 1 would believe me.
Elvis has become a mythic figure, and there have been frequent rumors that he’s still alive. Elvis remains the single most influential and respected figure in the history of Rock music. Elvis was the first Rock/Pop singer to have a single record sell a million copies, the first to go platinum with an album in less than 2 weeks, the first singer to pre-sell a million records before it’s release, the first entertainer to earn a million dollars for 1 concert performance, and the first young, white, southern male to bring international attention to the importance of black rhythm and blues. He was the first singer to get a million dollar screen contract. He was the first music personality to have a TV performance broadcast worldwide via satellite.
In 1993, he became the first rock’n’roll star whose picture appeared on a commemorative United States Postal stamp (the largest stamp printing in history). Elvis is a landmark in almost everyone’s life, going back to distant memories of watching him above the waist on Ed Sullivan or hearing Hound Dog for the first time. His image continues to mesmerize: witness the appearance of 200 Elvis impersonators at Liberty Weekend in 1986.
There was a time when he was merely the most popular entertainer in history. He’s more than that now. He’s a symbol of America as recognizable as the flag. Elvis opened the ‘window of his soul’ to his fans all over the world.

Thank you, Elvis! Remember you are always on our minds. TCB FOREVER!

i found this on the internet weird

7 Comments on “elvis alive?

  1. Elvis is dead. Autopsy performed. Death certificate issued. A conspiracy of the magnitude described in the article would require the cooperation of an extraordinary number of people. It defies all reasonable logic to state otherwise.

  2. Ya he’s lifeless he had a drug, and drinking problem. One of my teachers went to most of his concerts until those bad things started happening.

  3. Of course Elvis is alive. As long as there is 1 heart ready to believe in him, as long as he brings a smile to 1 very little girl, Elvis is alive!

  4. Yes he’s dead.

    You just wasted an hour of your life on this question.

    I’m sorry no 1 told you sooner.


  5. Jeez, he is lifeless already. What would be the purpose of such an involved and grand hoax? It wasn’t like he needed to cheat insurance companies so his family would be provided for.

    Anyway, if you like fantasies, watch Bubba Hotep. It is an amazing allegory on lives and what might have been with Elvis in the lead, explaining why he is not dead. I really love it.

  6. I must say I do like the theories put forward here and I would like to believe hes still alive somewhere but in reality I dont think he is. Look at JFK, Marilyn Monroe and Diana whenever a celebrity who has made a big impact on the world in their lives dies, the conspiracy theorists go mad. Dont get me wrong I love conspiracy theorys cos they make me go ‘ooh I wonder’ but so did the Da Vinci Code- I love stories that have those kinda twists and turns but that doesnt mean I believe them.

    Conspiracy Theories are good because they’re good stories whether they’re true or not.

    If Elvis is alive then he obviously wants to remain ‘dead’ else he wouldve revealed himself. If he’s really dead, end of.

    Either way he will be sadly missed. Long Live The King

  7. Of course he is lifeless he passed away of constapation!!!! (which is an embarrising way to die if you ask me)
