Elvis Presley: Conspiracy Nutjobs Say They Have Proof He’s Still Alive | Wireler
Even in the event you’re solely passingly aware of his music, you in all probability know the main points of Elvis Presley’s last moments.
The King died as he lived — dogging a peanut butter, banana, and barbiturate sandwich whereas straining to provide his last mission in a fuel station lavatory stall.
We may be a bit hazy on a number of the particulars there, however the gist stays clear:
After years of onerous residing, Elvis handed away in 1977 on the age of 42.
And for causes that stay unclear to these of us who’ve by no means worn a tinfoil hat or bought a single copy of the Enquirer, thousands and thousands of persons are satisfied the rock legend faked his personal loss of life and spent the previous 4 many years hiding from the general public eye.
Theories as to why and the way probably the most well-known males on the planet pulled off such a disappearing fluctuate wildly.
But all of the conspiracy theorists appear to agree on sure key factors.
They imagine that identical to Tupac and numerous Nazi battle criminals, Elvis determined he can be happier residing out his days in nameless solitude, and he staged a untimely passing earlier than fleeing to a tropical hideaway.
