On This Day



On This Day… The King Died… Or Did He?

Written by: George Chittenden : 27 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 16th August, back in 1977 when Elvis Presley died suddenly from heart failure at the age of forty-two. Many die-hard fans believe the King simply left the stage and is still out there. So today on the anniversary of his death, or faked death, we look at some of the unusual theories out there. One of the most popular theories is that Elvis may have faked his death in order to escape from the Mafia.

So, what do people believe that the King did for the rest of his life. Well, some think that Elvis returned to live at Graceland disguised as the groundskeeper, others believe that he was flown to Bermuda where he lived the rest of his life lying low. Other theories suggest that the singer may have gone into witness protection, as the mob may have believed Elvis of being a mole. The most bizarre of all Elvis theories though, is that he was a background extra in the classic movie Home Alone, which was released 13 years after his supposed death.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
