So Elvis was really alive and he did fake his death because of his immense popularity 40 years back. Wait, what? It appears that a homeless man who died in San Diego, California was thought to be The King, Elvis Presley. This old fella came by the name Jessie and he died under an overpass. Now the authorities wanted to know who the shabby man was so they ran his DNA on every known database on the face of the planet and Bing! His DNA told another story. He was no Jessie, He was Elvis Presley. Elvis Presley found dead, or so we thought?
Here’s how the story came to be…
Lab Technician Robert Rensdale and his assistant Madelline Hedgespeth who were doing the ID even rolled on the floor laughing about it when The King’s name appeared on the screen. They even told their superior about the issue and had it escalated to the FBI and CIA. FBI spokesman even confirmed the result and further added that Mr. Presley was under the witness protection program since 1977 and it was President Nixon who backed him up to make everyone else believe that he was really dead.
Of course that’s what they said but it doesn’t mean it’s real.
Now, now hold your horses everybody. Now we know what happens to people who believe in too much conspiracy. Eventually, they make up things just to believe that everything will be all right. This of course is total BUST!
All right, let’s take a trip down to memory lane, shall we?
“The King” Elvis Presley is among the most popular icons of all time. He was the inspiration to that brushed up ducktail hairdo that made a lot of women go gaga even after his death.
How far did his legacy go, you say? Well, we say pretty far indeed.
He inspired men during his time to wear open buttoned shirts, and loose black pants. He even promoted Rock n’ Roll to every single teenager in the world. Teenagers got more hooked with the portable transistor radios and record players. He was a well loved artist, no doubt about that.
You probably heard one of his songs covered by artists nowadays.
He had countless of hit songs like Can’t Help Falling In love, Always on my Mind, Blue Suede Shoes, Devil’s Disguise, Heartbreak Hotel and Jailhouse Rock. His songs are so popular that even when he’s dead, income still continue to pour in.
Everyone was so crazy of over the guy!
Women would be on their knees, crying tears of joy, and gasping for air when they see him in every concert, on the streets, and on tours. He was a total magnet that influenced quite a number of artists as well. He’s so popular that he’s even mentioned in songs.
The overwhelmingly sad truth though is that he might not really be happy at all.
But, with immense fame come a lot of problems, too. There’s always the temptation of drugs that would help them boost their energies, the constant drinking and partying (which is of course pretty much normal for a person like The King of Rock and Roll), the unhealthy lifestyle choices due to a hectic schedule and the increasing pressure to release more hits, marriage failure, family problems and so on.
Lots of famous people did die pretty early, especially during the peak of their success… Elvis wasn’t alone!
For sure you would already have a clear count of famous people who end up dying early too right? There’s “The King of Pop” Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, Marilyn Monroe, River Phoenix, and Janis Joplin.
When dear Elvis died, the world mourned and not a lot of people believed about how he died. Many speculated that he didn’t really die but just went to take on another identity to live a much normal and stress free life. He was found by Ginger Alden on his bathroom floor lifeless. He was brought to the hospital with the hope of reviving him but he was pronounced dead on the afternoon of August 16, 1977.
He did died everyone! So let’s put this case to rest.
The cause of death was covered up by the family by the Presley’s which raised quite a number of questions among his fans. According to reports his autopsy report would only be opened in the year 2027. His cause of death was suspected to be Cardiac Arrythmia which was seen to be caused by his drug use and heightened by his poor diet and health management.
According to sources his health has already degraded quite a lot since his divorce papers were processed. Depression due to divorce can do so much to a person, and The King is one example of how bad it could get.
Three of his former bodyguards even co-wrote what really happened to the king. They loosely narrated about his drug abuse problems. They said that he often resorted to barbiturates.
People can’t help make stories up because you see them in films too.
A lot of people never really moved on. In fact, if you would remember this animated movie Megamind, the superhero Mega Man who looked quite a lot like Elvis Presley faked his death to escape fame and responsibility. Megamind found him to be hiding in a secret house and tried to convince him to help out after he freaked out about him being alive in the first place.
You can’t really help people think that Elvis Presley didn’t really die 40 years ago when you see movies like this in the first place and of course, it really is hard to accept that this one man who changed the face of the American Pop Culture isn’t really here anymore.
Well, still, kudos to the person who came up with the story. It did convince more than a hundred thousand Facebook users that Mr. Presley really was this homeless man in the street who died under the overpass. Come to think of it, why didn’t they just made the story a bit more happy, like this old man was found sitting on a bench by the park, died with a smile on his face and is not homeless in the first place. It’s just like he killed him again, but this time even in a more lonely, and sad death. Nobody wants to die lonely you know!
Do you really think Elvis didn’t die? If he was really alive all those years, what do you think did he do with his life? Let us know what you think!
