This month, on August the 16th, the world will mourn the death of the King of Rock-N-Roll, Elvis Presley. It’s been 39 years since he died, yet people continue to say that they have spotted him all over the globe. Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977 in the bathroom of his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. He was 42 at the time of death. He had been on the toilet, but fallen off onto the floor, where he lay in a pool of his own vomit. Panicked, his staff contacted an ambulance, which rushed him to nearby Baptist Memorial Hospital, where, after several attempts to revive him, he died at 3:30 pm CST. His autopsy was performed at 7:00 pm. The official coroner's report lists "cardiac arrhythmia" as the cause of Presley's death, but this was later admitted to be a ruse entered into by the Presley family along with autopsy physicians Dr. Jerry T. Francisco, Dr. Eric Muirhead and Dr. Noel Florredo to cover up the real cause of death, a cocktail of ten prescribed drugs, taken in doses no doctor would prescribe. The phrase "cardiac arrhythmia," in the context of the coroner's report, means little more than a stopped heart; the report initially tried to attribute the arrhythmia to cardiovascular disease, but Elvis' own personal physician has stated that Presley had no such chronic problems at the time. Most of Elvis' many health problems can and have been traced back to rampant abuse of prescription drugs. Though it certainly seems like prescription drugs combined with a poor diet and overall unhealthy lifestyle caused his untimely demise, there continues to be, to this very day, many conspiracies surrounding his death. Did Elvis really die or did he fake his own death for some nefarious reason? On this episode of ParaReality Radio, I’ll be taking a look at the top 5 wildest conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Elvis Presley.
