Did Elvis Presley Fake His Own Death?

Elvis Presley died, apparently, on the 16th of August 1977 whilst in the bathroom at Graceland. He was found on the floor and rushed to hospital where he was officially declared to be dead at 15:30 by his personal physician, Dr. George Nichopoulos. So ended the life of ‘the King’.

Or did it?

Did Elvis Presley Fake His Own Death?


Later that night there was a press conference in which medical examiner Dr. Jerry Francisco indicated that the cause of death was ‘cardiac arrhythmia,’ noting that, ‘There was severe cardiovascular disease present.’ Despite the finality of such a statement many Presley fans still refuse to this day to believe that Elvis really did die. Many believe that he lived on for many more years in hiding and that he may still be alive even now.

Of course those who believe Elvis is still alive have offered up reasons as to why they think he may have faked his own death. There were reportedly problems with both his health and his finances and, also, it has been claimed that Presley’s life was in danger because he was allegedly going to give testimony in a federal case that could have implicated a Mafia group. The latter has led to speculation that Elvis may have entered a witness protection programme, much like it has been claimed that Tupac Shakur may have done too.


No good conspiracy is worth it’s weight without a body of evidence to back it up and so it is with the Elvis crowd. Since his supposedly faked death in 1977 there have been thousands of alleged sightings of ‘the King’ all over the world. Unsurprisingly, none have ever been substantiated as being in any way genuine.

There is, however, the curiosity of Elvis’ grave – on it his his middle name Aron is spelt as Aaron which was his middle name. Apparently either Presley himself, or his parents, tried to change the name to’Aron’ in order to make it appear like Presley’s stillborn twin, Jesse Garon Presley.

In the 1990s two tabloid newspapers ran stories that examined the continuing life of Presley up until his supposed real death in the middle of that decade though I for one think that was merely sensationalistic journalism –

Elvis IS dead, and has been for over 35 years.

Some of his adoring fans cannot let go for whatever reason and have a need to believe that he lives on, hence their continued ‘sightings’ of the man.

  1. I agree Elvis could well & truly be dead now(his mother didn’t live long & was obese & diabetic). But I believe there is also excellent valid reasons for “faking” your own death as well, especially if Elvis had been tangled up with the Mob, in Las Vegas! Tony “the ant” Spilotro was the Chicago Mob’s main enforcer in Vegas(1977) during that time and a total psycho! Elvis knew Tony quite well & knew what Tony would kill him or Col Parker, at the drop of the hat! By “faking” his own death(with Col Tom Parker’s blessings) was the only option out(along with his twin brother). Col Parker was also a fugitive from Holland living illegally in America(like many of the Italian Mob wise guys) and organizing “The King’s” death would also save his buttocks as well!

  2. Of course he’s still alive, an issue, I don’t believe that I can fail to believe in, even if his muzak was whatever ‘flat’ detail to me, who on Earth WAS his twin br.?

    • Yes i believe Elvis needed a way out and it was given to him his life was a mess. Do i think he is still alive now not sure. Is Jon Cotner Elvis no but he is a very talented singer. I think Elvis finally found the peaceful life he needed but i am sure he misses his loyal fans. Out of interest can anyone tell me the latest news on Elvis still being alive at 80yrs old.

    • Open the grave and watch maybe its his twin inside and not him. maybe he is alive upstairs on neverland

  3. CotnerFan says:

    Yes, yes, yes… Elvis is alive and he’s been living under at least two aliases during the past 38 years, most notably as Jon Burrows from August 16th/17th, 1977 to probably the early/mid-1990’s. The first time the name Jon Cotner was mentioned in public was somewhere in the early 2000’s, around ’02-’03. The “Mystery Man sings…” videos released on the YouTube channel “JimmyTheJam” are recorded and released during the years 2007-08, and yes, it’s definitely Elvis’ voice – both singing and speaking. Jon Cotner clearly is an extremely private and mysterious man, and I can say I understand that completely. Yes, he was born January 8th, 1935. Yes, he used to be a man named Elvis Presley. But now, he’s just Jon: an exceptionally talented man, who has an absolutely amazing singing voice with an incredible range – not only for a man in his 80’s, but period – and a beautiful, relaxing speaking voice, too. He has an unique ability to touch the hearts and souls of people all around the world with his unbelievable and unmistakable voice, and also with his kind, caring, down to earth, sincere personality. He’s still The King Of Music, to me he’s still Elvis Presley, for most of us he’s larger than life, he’s unbelievable, unexplainable… but after all, he’s just a human.

    – CotnerFan

    • Jon Burrows on stage, made no claim to be Elvis. He admitted that he is not Elvis. He sounds a lot like Elvis, but actually does not even look like Elvis. Jon Burrows does not look anything like Jon Cotner either.
      Jon Cotner does sound exactly like Elvis when he sings. Jon Cotner looks like Elvis and has the same eyes, nose, even the same teeth and smile. Jon also has the same stature as Elvis.
      I am not saying that Elvis is alive as Jon Cotner. But, If Elvis is alive and on the internet at all, it could only be as Jon Cotner. None of the others come close. I have scrutinized every detail of every idea or claim on the net, regarding Elvis being alive and Jon is the only one that comes close.
      I also strongly believe that Elvis’ twin, Jessie, was still born. Elvis’ father said that when he looked at both the twins, even though one was still born, he could see that they were not identical twins. So, I do not believe the theory that Jessy has been alive all this time, doubling as Elvis….Sorry Jon, if that is what I was meant to believe.
      If Elvis is/was alive, into the 21st century, and I have a feeling that he is/was, how would his ‘return’ be carried out? Firstly, how many people would believe him? How safe would he be? Would he be disrupting his current friends and family? If he had faked his own death without being in witness protection, would he be liable for costs, and using any documents illegally to maintain another identity? How much trouble would he create for himself by coming forward?
      Elvis would need absolute amnesty from the President and Government, I would think, before he would even consider coming forward as Elvis himself. How many imposters would also come forward?

  4. Whether Elvis is alive or not; I just wanted to say that I think of him all the time. But around this time I think of him more because that’s when he left “The Spotlight”. I know one day I may know the truth, but my Love and Respect for him will never change – regardless of that truth.

  5. My mother will freak when I show her this. He supposedly died 13 years before I was born so I wouldn’t know anything about him. My mother on the other hand will. She was crazy over him.

  6. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone had watched the Spoof Documentry “Elvis Found Alive”? If so what are your views on this? I know it’s not Elvis, but this “Jon Burrows”(in the movie) tells a plausible story up to a certain point. (That point being: how he left Graceland after the “switch”)
    The other problem with the movie is that fake Jon/Elvis talks throughout the movie like he is reading a script, not answering questions in an interview. There is however one major point that I’m confused with and that is: There is another Movie called “Finding Graceland” (apparently written by this Jon Burrows) about Elvis trying to come back to his home. It includes real footage of Graceland and George Klein has a small part in it. Priscilla is Exec Producer. WHY say Elvis is dead, then produce a movie that contradicts this and cause even more speculation? There are also claims by fake Jon (and youtubers) to say he had a part in that movie.
    Also wanted to know if anyone has read Ginger Alden’s book about her relationship with Elvis? I have not yet had a chance to get a copy, and wondering why she waited till now to tell her story?

    • Hi i have seen both films and read Ginger Aldens book. I was not impressed by all three because i had expected so much more. The films: There is so much info out there about Elvis still being alive i truly thought i would be left in no doubt whatsoever that Elvis did not die in 1977. Not sure just who Jon Burrows is but feel a definite connection somewhere with Elvis. The book: Nothing in there that was new about the final years of Elvis. I really believe there is every possibility he faked his death but not sure if he is still alive now. The best books i have read were Elvis and me and Good rockin tonight full of highs and lows and love and sadness. Of course you must decide for yourself but i hope my reply has helped a little. Deb U.K

      • Yes my name is Jeff also Elvis is alive because I have direct evidence to say Annie is alive call me 256 608-8668

  7. Elvis Presley is alive he is not dead

    • Yes, I believe that also, but it doesn’t matter till he wants it known.
      I just hope he’s had a good life and that he’s been happy and healthy and with those who love him.

      God Bless,


    • I agree completely! But……..if Elvis is alive and he is reading this, I hope that I could somehow meet him or Priscilla, I’m only in 8th grade but I hate pop and modern music the only music I listen to is Elvis and people like him ( but mostly elvis) the day I heard Elvis’s voice I completely fell in love with it. Now his music is the only thing that keeps me going everyday. So…..LONG LIVE THE KING, YOU’LL ALWAYS BE ON OUR MIND’S.

      • Hi Londen,

        I wish you could meet him too, I really do, I just don’t see how its possible. I think that what he sacrificed for others cost him greatly. Just know that he still loves all of you, he really does.

        I would suggest you look into the Teachings by: Jon Cotner, look into his website: Jon-Cotner.com

    • I agree will elvis IS alive. There is so much proof that could back this up.

  8. In 2012 Priscilla & LMP attended Elvis Vigil at Graceland. This would have been the 35th anniversary of Elvis’ “death”. I still don’t get why Priscilla would attend the vigil after all those years. Was this the day Elvis really died? I mean if it was as she said “the right time” ?. If we are to believe Elvis really died on Aug 16th ’77, Why didn’t she attend the first vigil? ( which I believe was the year after his “death” in 1978) Then people like me wouldn’t have this niggling feeling that something wasn’t/isn’t quite right. I know the truth may never be revealed, and at times I feel guilty, because if he really is gone we are disturbing a rested soul. But on the other hand IF there is a possibility that he is still or was still alive – I believe in my heart that Elvis would have liked to share that reason with his fans. (He shared a lot of his personal life with his fans live on stage) I know this may completley contradict what I have said previously, but I go through this nearly everyday; Wanting to accept he is gone, and then asking so “why so many holes in the “truth”? I have found these on youtube to verify what I am trying to say. Elvis sharing information & talking about his “drug use” to his fans.
    Priscilla & Lisa Marie talking about 35th Anniversary of Elvis’ “Death”

    • Maria,

      I think there’s more to the story much more! I was 8 years old in 77 on that hot august day, even though so young , I remember very well cause it was like a very close family member died. I remember my mom crying in the driveway and me trying my best to ask what happen and not be upset I wanted to be the little man of the house for my mom, but I couldn’t I was devasted too. But after all these years and all speculation and what-have-you, here’s where I’m at, Elvis was in Grave danger due to something he was involved with, perhaps he was an FBI agent at large? Actual I believe %100 he was, I think he used his onstage persona to break into the Vegas underworld and so on, and took down big players and no one could figure it out!!!! Until one day they did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are u paying attention!! ™ He had to protect himself and his family, so he did what any father,! husband, friend would do, he sacrificed himself as the world new him and disappeared, I believe he orchestrated the entire thing to protect everyone else!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are u paying attention!!!! ™ I also believe he has poked his head out from time to time ” In Plain Site” but “No One Knows What He Looks Like Now”!!!!™ I think Elvis would love having his true fans see him again, cause I believe the man has a great big heart, I also think it might be therapeutic for him in some way just to really interact with his fans. Now let’s go to the Jon Corner Mystery, if you listen to Jons version of “How Great Thou Art” and you can’t hear Elvis than I must be deaf, dumb and blind!! Lol… If you listen to Jon speak, and don’t think that’s a dead ringer ” hint” “hint” than again I must be deaf, dumb and blind!!! Now I will through one more thought into the mix, what if Elvis’s twin brother really didn’t die at birth, ever consider there may have been 2 , they were twins ;). Now that could really broaden the scope, what if Jon cotner is elvis’s twin brother? Or what if its the 2 of them under one jon cotner alias? Is that possible ? Now here is where I cover my butt and protect the innocent 😉

      I could be completely wrong and some random kook from the internet :). All I know for actually fact is the books and the bible study material Jon Cotner provides for minimal money is amazing, awe inspiring and life changing!!!””. You should consider buying the material I’m telling you, this all so much bigger than Elvis.

      • I have also had the theory that Jesse Garon Presley may not be dead. I don’t know a lot about U.S. laws or how things may have been in 1935. But I know that in 1973 my Sister whom I’ve never met ( I was born in 1976) died at birth after only a few hours. My parents, who have since also passed away didn’t say much about it. BUT I know she was buried in an unmarked grave (Just like Jesse). The only difference is; I still have the document that shows her location in the burial site, even if I cannot actually pin point it, I know the rough location. Is there such a document that could prove Jesse is actually dead? I always think to myself “What if he didn’t die? What if Vernon & Gladys were too poor to raise 2 kids? What if Jesse was given to a relative or put up for adoption?” I have seen some pictures and videos that show Elvis with BROWN eyes. And before anyone says “But Elvis had blue eyes” I know! I have also tried to find out why this was the case, and all I’ve got is some unreliable sources that claim Elvis sometimes wore contact lenses to give the impression that his eyes were brown. (for movies)
        I saw the interview on youtube that Elvis gave before the Houston concert. It appeared he had brown eyes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTaWt0SHt1o but in numerous other pictures & vids, Elvis has his Blue eyes back! Could Jesse have brown eyes? There was no way to determine that Jesse & Elvis were identical twins. But what if they were EXCEPT for the eyes? Does anyone know if an actual death certificate exists for Jesse?
        I think that if Elvis was alive or is alive, then like I said he faked his death for good reason. FBI or just plain to get away from it all who knows? Only Elvis & God know. (well maybe a few who helped him, IF he did not die!)

        • Maria,

          Thank you for the Youtube video clip, quite interesting, there is one segment in there that really made me take notice, indeed! Well, I think between what you have posted and what I have posted, we’ve pretty much covered the gamut of possibilities!! Where do we go from here? And are you MarMar? Meaning is that your personal YT Channel and is that your picture on the account? You have quite a few interesting people on your YT channel, quite interesting for sure! One of the twins also may have been slightly taller ; ) if indeed there were two Elvis’s ; ) 2″ inches ; ) you may want to look at heights next to some of the known characters and make reference that way, but again my hope for all of this is too give hope and insight and perhaps wins some ” Elvis is alive supporters and Bring some folks back to christ or to christ so as to hear the true Gospel. Again I will push you in the direction of Jon cotner. Maria there is something there!

          • Hi Jeff,
            I am not MarMar, that is just a co-incidence! I spend a lot of time on YouTube just trying to figure stuff out. When I have a theory I try to find something solid to confirm or deny it, and so I just happened to find that particular vid. (also my love for Elvis, I love watching any footage/press conferences etc. just to see him and hear his voice.) Is it just me or he seemed to be very agitated in that vid?
            The height thing is something I had never thought of before. I’m not sure of actual heights of any of his co-stars or entourage, but I have sometimes thought he looked a little shorter/taller beside certain people. There is a lot of conflicting stories just surrounding his height, Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I found this online: http://www.celebheights.com/s/Elvis-Presley-638.html I am confused no one there seems to agree on an actual size!
            What preferred hand was Elvis? is another thing I sometimes wonder. I’ve seen a lot of pics and live footage of Elvis signing with the right hand. But in footage of him (I can’t find it) during the army, I recall seeing him sign with the left, as he was holding his Army (I’m not sure what it’s called- Laundry bag?) gear bag with the right on his shoulder.
            I also came across a site that is also in search of the truth. Mickey Moran has been collecting evidence since 1988. He has strong beliefs that Elvis was/is alive. And although he does not believe that this “Jesse” is Elvis, he doesn’t actually deny Jon Cotner’s involvement. http://www.thepresleyassignment.com.
            I have looked at a bit on his site & agree with 95% of it so far.
            It seems like for the most part You, Mickey & myself are on the same wavelength.
            As for Jon Burrows + Jon Cotner = Elvis & Jesse? Their Surname initials B.C. = Before Christ (I don’t mean this in the time sense, but in both being Believers of Spiritual Existence; or (T).C.B ? T meaning Twins? These are just some of the things I think about, maybe I read too much into things. And even if I am right, what do I do with it? Who is going to confirm it?
            Like Elvis sang in “The Impossible Dream” ; ‘This is my quest to follow the star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far’ I will continue to try to find the “Truth”. Maybe in another 13 years or so (when the autopsy is revealed) we may find it.

        • Hi Maria,

          I don’t know if I want to go that deep into uncovering whether Elvis’s brother Jesse Garon, had died at birth, or was adopted, you see my main interest is to peak the interest of Elvis fans everywhere “That Just Maybe He Is Still Alive”. In my heart I know he is and I also believe so is his brother currently, but I cannot be sure, I don’t think anyone can until they want it to be known. I will agree there are many clues and inconsistencies out there with the official story, at times I really don’t know what to make of it all. I believe both you and I have given some rather insightful perspective to ponder and look into, but thats all I want to do, just peak the “True Fans” interest. I would never risk Elvis or his family, ever! I guess there is more things I could say, but its not my place, sometimes I think I have said and told too much, for that if my friends are ever reading, I am truly sorry, I have always hoped that my knowledge and insight would bring some happiness to others the way it has brought happiness to me., and I only provide what I believe has been approved ; )

          I think this is where I need to draw the line and say goodbye to everyone, its been a pleasure sharing with everyone, but truly the Elvis saga is only a tiny part of the story, it truly is late in the day my friends, there is so much to be told and learned on a much larger scale. We truly are in the last days!

          My wish for anyone interested in the REAL TRUTH, told by 2 people who were there, would go to:


          YOU WILL LEARN THE TRUTH THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Thanks Jeff, that sums up my feelings pretty well. I have been following this for about 25 years, and when it comes down to it, I don’t care so much as the “why” it happened, but would be fascinated in the “how” it happened.

            I’m way past Cotner though.

          • Jeff,

            I will get my hands on some or all of the Cotner books eventually.

            But having lived in Memphis for 30 years and knowing a few people who might be in the loop, I know “Elvis” couldn’t/wouldn’t be selling anything on the internet other than what is sold on elvis.com. I have read everything else, so I’ll read those too when I can.

            Please feel free to drop me a private email at the above address and we can dig deeper.

        • Maria,

          Elvis had blue eyes. Or as original Memphis Mafia member and life long friend George Klein says, sky blue eyes. I too have noticed in a lot of photos that the eyes don’t always look blue but you have to take into consideration that thousands upon thousands of photos were taken of Elvis in less than professional photographic conditions. Lucky to get a snap shot here and there. I even asked my wife once, what color were Elvis eyes, and she said blue, just watch Blue Hawaii.

          Also, Elvis was right handed. And according to his Army enlistment papers he stood right at 6 feet tall.

          • EPBLVD,

            If you have not read the books Jon Cotner has provided , than your not “Way Past Cotner”.
            If you have than your way past me, lol…. Cause I know perhaps more than I say, so if not go back and start there.

            Good Luck.

      • ian harrison says:

        Jeff . I am totally agreeing with you .Jon Cotner WAS Elvis he never says this !Always ‘no i’m not Elvis’ with his change of identity he isn’t lying and could i think pass a lie detector .I also think jon burrows,thomas burrows,john baron,barry handy,certain luke tieppo tracks and now Ron Jesse are all Elvis .Sometimes he disguises his change singing voice .Listen to 500 miles Ron Jesse how does he disguises talk with an American accent in the middle of that song!?

      • jackieh says:

        Jeff-could you contact me? Thanks!!

    • Maria,

      Have you read any of the Jon Cotner books or listened in on his paltalk sessions ever at all?

      Also do u have an email address where we can correspond privately? And I’m just curious what country do you live in?

    • tigerman says:

      Interesting Maria. Elvis born 1935, Priscilla and Lmp attend 35 years anniversary. Numbers game again.did you know that elvis grave and medicationgardens was closed to the public and tours postponed due to construction work prior to 2012 . Was elvis body finally laid to rest and fake body removed? I wonder if EP died in 2011 and Priscilla did say ( the time is right) meaning the king is gone…….

      • Wrong! If Elvis really died the world would be told, but it could be more complicated due to the fact there may have been 2 Elvis’s !

      • Also don’t you think XM/Sirius satellite radio (Elvis Channel) would announce? Don’t you think George kline and the others would fall to pieces? It would be told!

      • I have always explored the idea that if the death was hoaxed and he eventually died if it would be announced. After doing a lot of research into Witness Protection (as a reference) I have decided that no, if this scenario ever presented itself it would not be announced because that would be admitting that what occurred 8/16/77 was a hoax. If Elvis hoaxed his death it had to be forever. If it was ever announced by the family that he did not the fans would be terribly upset,, devastated and others very angry. The legend has run its course and has been set in stone.

        • I see your point and understand your perspective, but I tend to disagree because 1) he is alive and he’s poking his head out right now ; ) 2) His brother is alive and there is a much bigger agenda at hand, I believe in the end there will be 2 Kings ; ) in the “Human Sense”.

          But truthfully , this is all so much bigger than Elvis and he would tell you the same thing, I believe, Perhaps he’s waiting for something to happen ; )

    • danny fisher says:

      met lmp a few weks ago at a vip gig, each vip ticket allowed one question,one autograph and one photo with her, lisa was nervous, and very unsociable. she looks like elvis, but doesnt have his manners and appreciation for fans….. her eyes tell me that something about elvis is still a big secret….
      her assistant and security push the questions along and didnt let lmp answer any questions for the 20 people waiting and cameras were checked before we left. she had one assistant wiping and destroying any food and drinks that could leave a DNA trace. She recently stated in an interview that afther her concerts she likes to meet fans and hear their stories(Fat LIE) soon., it didnt feel like rock n roll royality was in the room that night,,,,,,,,one lady was kicked out of the room because
      she asked her about graceland and elvis estate…….if there is 2 elvis presley’s out there there may be 2 lisa marie presley;s out there two. strange girl

      • You may be more right than you have ever imagined !!!!!!!

      • Lisa Marie is guarded very carefully. The first time she appeared in concert in Dallas (2004?), the person who has done concert reviews for years and years expressed that he was shocked that he couldn’t obtain any VIP or backstage pass to get a chance at an interview. Not that he gets to interview any of the big stars but they are usually able to get backstage. His column had his email there so I sent an email asking him a few questions. He said he had never seen anything like it. I asked him if he was around when Elvis was touring and he said no. I bet it was the same when Elvis was on the road, but we know that always had the potential to become a riot if not handled well.

        The DNA wipe down is interesting but in light of recent stories it doesn’t surprise me. We all know that she is Elvis’ daughter. She is not Elvis. She has had to live under that enormous shadow all of her life. I believe she has earned the right to have a little bit of breathing room and have her own life without being asked about her Dad 24/7. Just imagine both sides of that. You love that he was your Dad, you wouldn’t be who you are without that, but hey, can I live my own freakin life too?

      • ian harrison says:

        I believe you are right.look up on youtube at vid I LISA MARIE ! This i believe is the real one. There is an interview where the one we are used to calls him ELVIS and not DAD,i read bill beeny claim in his elvis dna book that she is a phoney

  9. If Elvis is alive then it is for a good reason that he has not made it public. If he is dead, let him in peace. There are several sites that give reasons and proof that Elvis is alive. They also provide hints and clues that Elvis “left” for us to decipher.Some of this proof can easily be debunked or explained logically. But there are so many unanswered questions that leave people hanging. Elvis may have died but the autopsy will not be revealed because it was Vernon’s wish to keep his son’s life and death private. If I was Vernon I wouldn’t have invited public in to view Elvis’ body, especially if I knew the body inside was not my son! If Elvis faked his death, he would not be phoning random people to ask them to let it be made public that he is in fact still alive. Elvis respected God ; He would not be using his “dead” twin brother’s name.
    Jon Cotner looks more like Ronnie Tutt than Elvis. Jesse looks more like Jimmy Savile. If you don’t believe me Google the pics and compare them! Even Jimmy “Orion” Ellis(Hughes) looked nothing like Elvis, to start his lips were different, yes he had similar body frame and hair but so do a lot of ETA’s. Questions like Why doesn’t the 73 & 75 Liver biopsy’s of Elvis not match the Body of “Elvis” examined during the medical report/autopsy of Aug 16th 1977 ? Why did Vernon refuse the USA flag to be draped across his son’s casket? Why is Priscilla still using the surname Presley if she divorced Elvis in 1973? Why was Priscilla allowed charge of Graceland & EPE instead of Patsy Gambil who is Elvis’ First double cousin? Why was Elvis’ 1st SSN still active in the 90’s? Questions like this are far more worth digging into than the double “A” spelling of his middle name. ( Just for the record; in UK you may use whichever names you wish so long as it’s not for fraudulent purposes) So Aaron or Aron is irrelevant until the problem arises concerning Marriage to and Divorce from Priscilla. Apparently Elvis changed the spelling to Aaron in 1966. There is no document to prove this. So if he married Priscilla in 1967 why did he use Aron on the License? And if he did change it, does this mean he never married her? Divorce proceedings started in 1972 and officially Elvis divorced Priscilla on 9th Oct 1973- using Aaron on the document. So how can he divorce someone whom he never married? Lets say he did not change the name; So he married but never divorced? Is this why she is still using the surname and charge of Graceland?
    If Elvis is alive he is 79 years old. He will not be making a comeback, but may want to share with the world why he did what he did before he dies. He will most probably have some connections to officially make a statement to the world – not through an unknown persons webpage. If he is dead then the unanswered questions must be explained to stop this once and for all. Too many of the wrong people are dragging Elvis’ name and legacy through the dirt and making money at his expense. Why can’t people just appreciate the Music, Movies & Entertainment that he left us? I know you may say I’m a hypocrite because I want to know the truth too. Yes I do. But above all I love Elvis Presley. If you are true fans- you will too.

    • Maria,

      I think most people on this page love Elvis, and “why can’t people appreciate the music,movies and entertainment he left us” they do! Perhaps your confused? Yes people have dragged his name around in the dirt and said horrible things, but that tends to be human nature in a very sinful and lost world, I think he can or could of taken it, he’s fought through tougher situations. As for Jon Cotner looking like Ronnie tutt, how do you know what Jon Cotner really looks like? I don’t think you’ve ever seen him!!!!! In fact I know for fact no one has seen him in person, perhaps the name Jon Corner is just an alias, perhaps it would serve you and others some good to look into the bible teaching s that Jon cotner has been sharing with people, it might be very insightful…


      PS, I also care very much about Elvis Presley and his entire family.

      • Jeff,
        Please allow me to explain myself. First and foremost I love and respect Elvis. I also regard anyone to be a fan of Elvis as a friend. I was not attacking anyone, just voicing my opinion. I wasn’t referring to anyone on this page, I meant those that make money using Elvis’ name in a distasteful manner. Secondly regarding the pictures of said “Jon Cotner”, I was talking about the aged bearded man that comes up if you were to Google-image his name. It is true that this may not be the real Jon, and I have never met him. I was giving my opinion to the pictures that are available on the internet. I went to Jon Cotner’s YouTube channel and listened to some music; It is good, BUT in my opinion is not Elvis Presley (as some people have claimed) I also went to his webpage and I saw was pages to order books and cds. I am a Christian and I have my own Bible. I commend Jon for the work he is doing with his Bible teachings.
        I hope this clears things up for you, as I did not intend to offend you or any one on this site.

        • Hi Maria,

          Thank you for clarifying, I too am a Christian! I cannot say conclusively that Jon is Elvis but I can say Jon Has brought many people Back to Christ , including me and has given me and others a better grasp of the actual Gospel, For that I am forever grateful to him. Do I want Elvis to be alive of course I do, me and 100 million true fans would love that! Do I want Jon Cotner to be Elvis ? Well I think that would be awesome too, but I don’t know for sure, but!!!!!!! I have a feeling Elvis “if alive” may have a hand in the Jon Corner mystery ;). Maybe there’s two Jons 😉

          God Bless,


          • If Elvis did hoax his death it was irreversible. There would be no going back and that would include this thing called the internet that didn’t even exist when he was “alive”. I fall in between the cracks of most “believers” in that I think there is a chance that Elvis may have hoaxed his death. And I don’t mean hoax as in ha ha. I think if he did it was because of serious health issues or due to an imminent threat. Knowing some of the Colonel’s contacts and debts to the casinos I lean toward the latter.

            Cotner and Elvis don’t have anything to do with one or the other. Elvis would not be on any of these sites looking for attention or leaving clues. If he left his life that day, he did so knowing that was it, he could never be, pretend or hint that he might be Elvis.

    • Ron tutt is interesting .

  10. Asked about why lisa Marie Presley disappeared from 1978 .did she joined elvis in witness protection.there was kidnapped attempts concerning her.Lmp wasn’t seen or photographed until she was 15., 6 years without a trace.do you find lisa Marie strange today when she is being interviewed.i am thinking theres 2 lisa Marie Presley out there.with money there is power.ood for thought. By the time the year 2027 Comes for the fbi to release files and the real autopsy results all elvis family and friends will be old or dead to answer any questions. Veron was a smart man to put a 50 year seal on this.

    • Who did David Stanley sneek in the night elvis disappeared?
      Why wasn’t the Stanley brothers on duty to check on elvis,where did they go?
      Did elvis catch someone in bed with ginger and a fight broke out and elvis was killed?
      Was rick Stanley so high and drug out that he delivered elvis cocaine instead of his right medicine?
      Did ginger kill elvis when she found out about the Will and wasgoing to dump her?
      Did dee and Stanley boys kill elvis because veron was getting a divorce and cut the Stanleys out of the Will,payback time?
      Who broke into Gracelands and left a note on Lisa’s bed to say its easy to get to you?
      Did colonel tom Parker have elvis killed to make money to pay off his mafia debt?

    • Hmmm,
      I wonder if Elvis’s twin brother had lived what might his daughter of looked like 😉

      Oh dear so much too ponder, but than again its illegal to fake your death and its even harder to hide your identical twin brother who was “Still Born”. But really who knows 😉

    • EPBLVD says:

      Lisa Marie never disappeared. She may have gone to school in Europe for a year, I’ll have to look back and confirm that. Obviously she was protected for fear of kidnapping and it’s sad to say, overzealous fans. She still has security to this day.

      The autopsy was never sealed for fifty years. Urban legend. It is a private autopsy and is in the hands of the Presley family and will never be released.. However there are a few loose copies out there that people got their hands on. Mostly from the Dr Nick trial.

      None of the scenarios about the Stanleys mean anything other than perhaps one of the Stanleys missed a round on checking in on Elvis.

      It has been written that someone left a note in Lisa’s room but it has never been proven.

      The Col’s income eventually died as soon as the estate got him legally removed from any of the future income of anything tied to Elvis. He did get Vernon to sign an agreement a day or so after Elvis was pronounced dead. He knew people would keep buying Elvis so he profited short term but not for long. In fact he had to pay several million dollars back to the estate in the early 80s.

      No one know if Elvis’ twin was identical or not. And it is not illegal to fake your death if you don’t profit from it buy cashing in an insurance policy or other form of payment due upon death. All other money that is being generated by EPE now could be done even if Elvis is alive.

      • You are correct, I guess I should of asked permission before I posted hope your well…

        God Bless,


        • I dont believe elvis was murdered i dont believe lisa had a double. I dont believe jesse on linda hoods website is elvis. I am not sure about jon cotner but definitly some elvis link there. I do believe elvis faked his death i would love to know in detail how it was done

    • tigerman says:

      If there was a police investigation when EP died, the truth would have came out…..this may be a cold case in 50 years time. Graceland was a crime scene or a cover up……. Why did veron decline a state funeral from America…elvis was like a president.,a war veteran..

    • The autopsy files are never going to be released. This is an urban myth. It was a private autopsy and the family (attorneys or safety deposit box) has complete possession of it. There are some copies out there but supposedly in the hands of trusted professionals. Bill Beeny claims he saw one when he wrote his DNA book. I used to think I knew who the doctor was who gave that to him. Too much detail to go into here. But we are never going to see the autopsy. We are never going to see anything different in a legal sense than we did on 8/16/77.

  11. Nina Juede says:

    I have been reading on line so much about “Elvis is Alive” and in a “Victim Witness Protection Program”. Weeeelllll, that’s possible, soooo, what do people need,, maybe a, “a hand book”, on “How to mind your own darn business for Dummies”, If the man is still alive and in a victim witness protection program, don’t you think it is for a very good reason, Why would “Elvis Fans” possibly want to “expose him” and “Blow his cover” and risk getting him killed”, “Food for thought”.

  12. I believe Elvis took his own life. Elvis was a vivacious reader and into numerology and the afterlife. For example, the numbers 8+16+1977=2001….this is just one exmple. Coincidence, perhaps, but it makes one think. Whatsmore, Elvis in his last years was bored to death…no fresh challenges to rise to; his last great accomplishment was the Aloha special in 1973. The last 4 years of his life was a slow march to the grave. Had Colonel (SCAM) Parker granted Elvis more serious film roles and a WORLDWIDE tour, This might have been the saving grace. But, the final nail in the coffin was the book released by his former bodyguards. When Elvis saw this, he knew it was time to check-out of this cruel world. You can say what you want, but it’s Elvis that once said..”Don’t criticize what you don’t understand son, you never walked in that man’s shoes.” Only Elvis knew what was going thru his head on 8/16/1977.

    • Hi i totally agree with what you say about his career and his whole lifestyle it couldve been turned around and been his saving grace but to take his own life with his daughter there no i cannot believe he would do that to her. If Elvis is still alive and i truly hope he is maybe he will let us know soon what really happened on August 16th 1977 and who his true friends were/are.

    • Absolutely Wrong!!! Elvis would Never Do That!!!

    • Elvis, would never risk losing his soul by committing suicide, absolutely incorrect and shame on you for implying such! Elvis is still alive , although living a very private life!

  13. look the only way is to prove the fact dig him up do a dna on him and then the world can live at rest and me myself he is dead and thats that but i still remember him the way he was the late great elvis

    • Maybe people who know he’s alive, don’t need the DNA Proof. Quite frankly the man owe’s no one anything! Besides you can’t get DNA from a wax dummy : ) Just saying….. In all fairness , I know you mean well with your comment, I just don’t think its that easy to pop back into a life your worked so hard to get away from.

      God Bless!

      ps, your might want to look into the Jon cotner mystery a little closer! Jon-cotner.com

    • Apparently his father before his own death in ’79, had Elvis buried under tons of granite. Elvis had requested he be buried beside his beloved mother, which did not happen. Elvis had a lot to look forward to, also his engagement. All supposed facts surrounding the events of 8/16/77 need to be documented by eyewitnesses, for instance was Elvis really seen at 10 am. picking up his newspaper? There was supposedly a back staircase from the bathroom to the kitchen. What was the special delivery package he signed for? Were two bank accounts in Elvis’ name really closed. Did he actually sign to cash in two life insurance policies? It seems to be out of the realm of possibility that Elvis would leave his estate to this daughter and thus let her eventually sell his royalty rights and intellectual property. I think the most likely scenario would be that he was taken into witness protection. But it doesn’t explain the account his own close friend and bodyguard gave upon seeing the corpse. Where was his 24/7 security detail that day? He had a phone and intercom in the bathroom. Why would his father seal his autopsy records? Unless it was a suicide and he wanted to protect his son’s reputation. If Elvis is in witness protection, he would have a new identity, and no record of his previous social security number. However, in the end, no one person or one veritable fact proving Elvis was or is alive after 8/16/77 has been substantiated. If he did have a serious CAD, why wasn’t he taking meds for that. The only conditions mentioned he was being treated for were glaucoma and the intestinal problem.

    • ian harrison says:

      Vernon had the coffin encased in a ton of granite so no way will they unearth the wax dummy

      • I wouldn’t want to “Unearth the wax dummy”, but that is interesting and if thats true, that kinda says it all, wouldn’t you agree?

      • The gravesite was reinforced with rebar and concrete, not granite. This was observed by JD Sumner in a book, can’t remember which one. Of course to ensure that there wasn’t another body snatch attempt.

        • tigerman says:

          Veron organised the snatching of elvis body so he can get permission to bury EP at Graceland.this convinced the courts. To have a special burial plot…….smart move

          • Yes it was. I can’t remember his name but it was one of the family attorneys who set that up. If you go on YouTube and look up Ronnie Lee Adkins or Bear Adkins you can hear about it from the person who was contacted on behalf of Vernon and met with the attorney, all closely monitored by the police so it would end exactly like it did.

        • EPBLVD,

          I read your comments and agree on a lot of what you posted, especially the “Threat against him and his family”, as for Jon Cotner and the Elvis connection, I disagree with you there, there is some connection.

          • Jeff, I understand why a lot of people feel that way about a Cotner-Elvis connection. But from what I’ve learned the only connection is Cotner’s desire to be connected to Elvis.
            And that is all. It is too easy to trace IP addresses, YouTube entries and PayPal accounts for anyone who might be “in hiding” or related to anyone in hiding. We all know Big Brother is watching since 9/11.

  14. Elvis Presley says:

    I am dead. I have left the building. Thank you, thank you very much.

    • Elvis, We know that you’ve left the building. Jesse does’nt sing on stage, but he did make a CD for us. Thank you, Melinda

      • Sorry, the so called LHS Jesse CD is a realky bad impersonater! Elvis is 78 years old & would not have the voice if a 30 year old fake! Secondly Elvis would not sing those trashy Low life songs of the 80’s & 90’s. He would be doing spirituals ballads & blues if he was recording today. Lasty he would not be disrespectful to his Living twin brother Jesse which was adopted at birth. Haha, they said he was buried in an unmarked grave, because they do not bury the living.

      • Douglas says:

        melinda,…How would someone obtain a copy of a cd?..I believe i have seen that website you were talking about also

      • Linda, your Jesse is not Elvis!

  15. Why is it so hard to believe that Elvis the entertainer did die,but the man did not. His health and different things in his life caused him to have to make this choice. If people would go to Linda Hood Sigmon’s site and read starting from the first page to the last then you would understand. I’ve known Linda since 1990,and I’ve never had her to lie to me about anything. She is telling the truth people, and if you don’t want to believe her then its your lost. I can’t believe people can’t tell that the voice on his cd is him. I know we think of Elvis as the man that we remember of the 70s. We kinda froze in time there, but we have to think what he would sound like today without the back-up singers and the big bands. But to me even without all of that its his voice.He sounds so good. Oh well I guess no matter what is said its up to the person if they want to believe its true, but I just hate to see fans missing his music of today. I’ve heard people sing like him, but could tell it wasn’t him, but listen how he talks and pronounces his words and the little laugh that only Elvis Presley can do. He is alive !!!

    • Melinda,

      You keep posting in regards to Linda Hood Sigmons
      Website? Your doing a grave injustice, the people will not
      Learn the truth there! For the very few who know and care
      To defend it, the truth will not be found there!
      I realize now you are linda, why not tell the truth, ask
      For forgivness and do something worth-while,help the poor
      Give to charity, but don’t continually lie and say you know Elvis cause you don’t!!!!!

      I have decided after much deliberation to tell what I know,
      As the truth, I will not offer any factual evidence, but I will
      Tell what I know as the truth! Here it is!!!!!!

      Elvis presley the man representing the image died Aug. 16th. 1977, but
      The man himself did not! I absolutely know, there will be
      People slamming me for this statement, I don’t care!

      I write this out of love and kindness to all the fans who loved
      Him and still do, just know he still cares for all of you,
      And perhaps one day sooner or later the world will here
      His story, the whole truth!

      Just know this Elvis Presley was and still is a good man, and a God
      Fearing man who very much loved our true savoir Jesus Christ!
      I cannot and will not blame him for his descions, money and fame
      Only seem like everything they are not! Fame and fortune isn’t
      Nearly as important or as beautiful as peace and serenity!

    • I think that it is possible for Elvis to have lived beyond 8/16/77. I also believe it would be much more complex than many of us assume. This would have been an irreversible undertaking with help from some significant people/authorities. None of the urban legends that we have read about actually apply, although they do raise some questions and generate interest. Elvis would not be hanging around LHS or singing under other names on youtube, paypal or any other internet sites.
      That doesn’t leave us much does it?

    • Elvis Aron Presley & Jesse Garon Presley are both alive! The truth is written for those who really want to know. It’s the same way many view the Bible. If one lives by the words of God they will have a wonderful life. It’s those that want to live there own way, that never get anywhere in life. The Real Truth About Elvis & Jesse can be found in the book “Through My Eyes” The story of my life-Faiytale. The book is written under the name Jon Cotner and can be ordered on Jon’s site at joncotner.com He has books 1 & 2. His picture does appear on the cover. There is 2 dvd’s. In the first the man we know as Jon appears on the video and talks clearly about his birth & who he is. The truth is revealed in the Books! Don’t ask why, Don’t ask how. But the truth would put to rest all the attacks on here & youtube. “Jon” & Elvis are both sincere in the walk with God & Both are Bible Scholars. Many have been saved through their bible studies and paltalk sessions. God Bless All Of You!

      • Welcome to the LHS Jon Cotner looney tunes forum where people who just can’t live within the confines of reality come to live out their fantasy. Like anything else I expect this to be deleted by the enemy as they can’t stand the truth and can’t play fair so they censor anything that contradicts their fantasy world. Idoloters! Your God is dead!

      • I think there is a chance, just a chance, that Jesse did not die at birth. I got this information from someone who would know, although he only said it was a possibility.. Is Cotner possibly Jesse? Is that where you are going?

        • According to Jon’s first book he is JGP & he was adopted at birth. So when Elvis went undercover in 77, then Jon basically had to get protection as well, because he is the identical twin of Elvis

          • That’s why he is known as the mystery man, because only a few know that he did not die at birth, because the records were fixed.

          • Hi my name is Debs and i am a huge Elvis fan from the UK. This is my first time on here and i am really interested in all the info given about Elvis still being alive especially what Jeff and William have to say. I have always believed there was every possibility he did not die in 1977. I hope to read more info on here. Love and light to Elvis and all Elvis fans

          • William says:

            Jeffrey, why would Cotner need protection? No one would have known that he was Elvis’ twin. Elvis didn’t even know. That’s a stretch.

        • Hi William,

          Well than what did you learn from researching Jon Cotner? And what is your main hope?

          • I know Jon isn’t Elvis. My main hope is to find out if Elvis hoaxed his death. I don’t care about the why, but would be interested in the how.

      • Jeffrey,
        I know you speak alot about Jon. I know I heard him discussing the possibility of doing a concert. He talks about timing, location, and most of all security having to be right. Can you elaborate on thiis and also tell me and everyone else where I heard it. I do believe there is more to Jon than meets the eye, in a good way. Elvis the name and personna died, not the voice or his spirit.

      • Jeffrey ,

        List the website, so people can find out more..



  16. I’m a detective, not into conspiricy theories or UFO’s taking Elvis away. However, I want to convey a short story of sightings of Elvis the day after his death in my next book. I wouldn’t even tell the story except that I knew all the witnesses.

  17. Fred garvin says:

    My good people, Elvis Presley is deceased. He died in 1977. Please move on.

  18. Brenda Crawford says:

    people, there is NOONE, ANYWHERE that does or could love Elvis anymore than i do, people say alot about him,some may be true and alot of it is crap that people have nothing better to do than sit around and make up lies, NONE of us is perfect, what does the BIBLE say? nones perfect but the father, when we make mistakes we all want people to forgive us, and dont you think he feels the same? he is human like the rest of us and he too will answer to the same God we do,Elvis wasnt stupid he knows this and that is why he loves the Lord as he does, he loves his familyalso and wants and needs to spend some private time with them, put your self and family in his place(REALLY, would you not want too? if ever i can do anything to help him, i am here, i love you Elvis and i want you to be happy!

    • Madam, Elvis Presley is deceased. I am sure his mother loved him more than you. Get a grip.

      • Iv’e herd that said many many times. and the people who believe he is alive get laughed at and mocked and told to move and get over it. well I for one did accept Elvis’s Death although I wasn’t born at the time. I did accept his death.

        How ever I herd about Elvis’s private involvement with the Dea, and him being a Narcotic Government agent at Large, and his Involvement Fighting against illegal Drugs.

        And well many people as your self claim Elvis is dead but offer no argument against any of the evidence that is presented in the case of Elvis being alive.
        The only Argument I’ve herd is, Elvis is dead he died 1977.
        Elvis is dead get over it.
        Elvis is dead let him rest in peace.
        Elvis will always be alive in our hearts but sadly he died in 1977.

        These are the only arguments I ever get. and well to be frank it’s Just not good enough and has no ground to stand on against the amount of evidence the proves you wrong. it’s that simple. Elvis did not die in 1977 if you think you can prove other wise your wrong.

  19. Why was he in a photo with Mohammed Ali when Ali was leaving the hospital in 1988? I know, an alleged man came forward and said it was he, not Elvis, in the photograph. BULLSH..! That young guy did NOT LOOK A THING LIKE ELVIS, THE MAN IN THE PHOTOGRAPH! Yes, Elvis was an 8th degree blackbelt and knew how to slow his heartbeat down as even to fool medical personnel. And his autopsy is in his own handwriting. Why did his casket weigh 900 lbs? Come on, people. There is so much more! Where is the last airplane he purchased & why won’t Lisa Marie give her DNA to prove that this woman is NOT a Presley? Why? Why? Why? Let’s exhume the body of the “supposed” Elvis Aron (named after his twin brother, Jesse Garon, and see just who is in that marble

    • Kolleen,

      You have some good questions, but what if perhaps Elvis’s twin brother really didn’t die? What if the presleys were just too poor to care for both children? What if Jesse garon was adopted and had his name changed at birth? Hmmmm…

      What if both Jesse and Elvis were actually portraying the image of Elvis Presley? What if the colonel ,RCA, and close family were in on it? What if half the Elvis sightings were really of Jesse Garon? What if there were and still are secret rooms and underground quaters at Graceland? Hmmmmm…. I dare you to look deeper!

      What if both Elvis and Jesse are still alive? Hmmmm…… I’m not saying what i wrote is the truth, but I’m also not saying what I wrote isn’t the truth!

      Just trying to say there might be much more to the TRUE STORY!

      • Hi Kolleen!

        Darling you are right on everything! I want you to know the truth! First he has 16 videos under the name joncotner1835 on youtube. Then you can send a friend request to jon cotner on myspace. He has released 2 books about the real truth which are available on his website joncotner.com He also has many cd’s of his singing & many Bible study CD’s & He does talk live on his DVD. He is a real, Loving & Compassionate man with feelings. Also once you hear him speak in his Paltalk room, there is no denying that Godly voice. You have to check on his youtube channel to see when his room will be open. Goto paltalk, click on music, then click on kareoke. From there if the room is open click on Elvis Presley Family & Friends! God Bless!

  20. William says:

    Man, the opinions are all over the place. When I started researching Elvis’ death in 1978, mostly due to a court reporter who lived next door to me, I thought that I would come to my own conclusion one way or another. I never dreamed that hundreds of thousands might agree with me. Even if not for the same reasons.

    Elvis’ “death” was decided by the Col, Priscilla and the mob who had interests in the Vegas shows. Basically Elvis had gotten ill and wasn’t going to be able to make the next few tours. Unfortunately, his enterprise was living paycheck to paycheck and if he were to go into rehab or have the intestinal bypass that he needed for his blocked intestine, he would be out of commission for a year. Not only would that have been terribly embarrassing for his image but would also have thrown Elvis, RCA and the promoters for the road shows and the Vegas hotels into huge losses that they might not recover from.

    The ongoing plot with the jet airplanes that involved Vernon, Elvis and the FBI was supposed to be introduced to a grand jury on Aug 17, 1977. This I know from the court reporter who lived next to me in Memphis. I have had information for all these years that Elvis and Vernon DID testify via videotape for that grand jury, but I don’t have the date of that tape.

    The authorities make the laws and when all of the authorities and news agencies reported that Elvis was dead, a death certificate was filed, there was an autopsy and a funeral and that was legit enough for most people for years. But no one could get over the death of Elvis. People began waking up from the slumber over the next several years and started doing research on things that didn’t add up to them and before long, let’s say the mid to late 80’s, there was a groundswell of push back from Elvis fans wanting to learn more about the possibility of a death hoax.

    No matter what any of us think, Elvis is officially dead. It’s documented, all the medical evidence is slanted in that decision, it’s over with. He isn’t coming back, the family will never acknowledge any such thing, the autopsy will remain sealed at Gracleand forever. There aren’t any of us who could ever overturn that. The two smoking guns that I keep me doubting that Elvis died are the DNA that Bill Beeny submitted for testing; the known sample of biopsy tissue from Elvis’ liver and a known sample of the “Elvis” cadaver. When tested for DNA these two samples did not match. You will hear experts crawl over that one with excuses of chain of custody and anything else, but if they don’t match we have a story here.

    The other hard to ignore discrepancy is that mortician Bob Kendall and Elvis’ hair dresser Larry Geller both observed that the Elvis/body that they carefully examined did not have a cranial autopsy. Kendall went out of his way to mention it in his book, which was published after Cole and Thompson’s book that went into to gruesome detail about the autopsy. Larry agrees 100% with Kendall, and since Larry did prepare Elvis’ hair for the funeral he would certainly have known if the scalp had been sutured back. Kendall would have known from all his years in the funeral industry. In fact, I think Kendall had a personal reason for looking for the CA scars.

    These two items on their own are just hanging out there with some who believe the doctors 100% and others of us who believe that the DNA and cranial autopsy are very important items that need to be explained.

    Oh, and we could talk about the pool photo, but the authorities and experts will try to explain that away as well. That is Elvis in that chair, I don’t care when the photo was taken.

    • Hi William,

      You have some very interesting insight, I think your on to something : )
      Perhaps, something will convince the Big Man To Say Hello one more time : ) Thats of course if he’s alive : )

      Thanks for sharing,



  22. I say 2 every body! DNA AND FINGER PRINTS does not lie..People lie.And people will say anything 2 sale u a story To try 2 convince people that ELVIS PRESLEY is still alive.U no ELVIS PRESLEY is . And for ever be the king of ROCK .And if he is alive. He need to take his ass to the F.B.I And Start livion.He does not have to meney years left if he is alive.. Because every body nose his music will Live FOR EVER… AMEN.

  23. why would Priscilla say that Elvis,s twin Jesse is actually live when he was suppose to of been still born is it because she is protecting Elvis so Elvis could say he is Elvis,s twin and nobody would be none than the wiser if he faked his own death its cos he had his reasons one is cos he was getting fat and he was getting sick and he didnt want his fans to see him like that he want people to remember him as he was and the second reason is cos himself and his family was threatened he was getting death threats by the mafia cos he was going to protest about there drugs and he lost lots of money to them they scamed him so he had no choice and i say good luck to him if he was still alive all i wants to do is lead a normal life like the rest of us and if he is dead then god rest his sole

    • Mary,

      I am sure there is many Mysteries surrounding the Elvis Saga, but one thing I can assure you is this ” Elvis is not living as his deceased twin brother ” ! That story is a lie! And there is nothing on the Internet, that says he is, unless your looking at Scam Artist Linda Hood Sigmonds website!

      As for Jon Cotner, he is a bit of a Mystery, but one thing is for sure he sings, talks and looks like a 77 yr. old Elvis, but truthfully who really knows. I will say one thing, my money is on Jon Cotner! As for Priscilla saying Elvis’s twin brother is alive “Please Provide Proof of That”

      • i will find the proof of that when i find it on my pc again

      • Hi Mary, Yes Elvis is still alive today. He will be watching the results of the election tomorrow as the same as we will. He is going by his brothers name Jesse. Mary you must not know Linda H. Sigmon personally, or you wouldn’t call her names. I’ve known her since 1992 and I can tell you she is va very nice and not crazy. I have three things that he has signed for me.Have you heard his new w cd cd ?Its great. If you go to Amazon you will see that the artist is listed as Elvis Presley, on the mp3
        You really need to get it or go to Linda’s site and listen free. You want regret it. Also she has t
        things you can read about the cd. Hope this helps. Thanks Melinda.

        • Lie, Lie, Lie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perhaps, you mean well, perhaps you have been fooled like so many, But Elvis Has Never And I Mean Never Gone By The Name of HIs Brother Jesse!!!!!!!!! EVER!!!!!!

          Linda H. Sigmon, first of all is an alias, thats not her real name, second Linda knows absolutely NO ONE in the Elvis inner Circle!!!!!!
          That I can assure you, you see Linda is missing the Real Truth!!!!!!

          Perhaps in time the real truth will be revealed, and I can assure from what I know, that is far more mysterious, beautiful and revealing than you could ever imagine. I will tell you this, Elvis the image was retired Aug., 16, 1977, but the man himself and perhaps someone very close to him are alive and well!!!!!!!

          • Hi Jeff,Thanks for your comment to my reply to Mary. How come you think Linda is not who she says she is? I have been to her house back in 1992 when she had her news letter and then in Sept. of this year she and her husband Tom came to my house and had lunch with my family and friend. So yes she is LHS period. No I don’t believe Elvis’ twin is still alive. I believe that came about to cover up Elvis being seen somewhere. So with tales like that going around thats why no one believes that he really is alive, but of course thats what some people in the circle of EPE and others wanted. They all know the truth. Yes one day when Elvis the man really doesdie the truth will be made known to the public. I hope that want be for along time. I’m glad he got a chance to live alittle and do somethings he wanted to do. Now he will soon be 78 and just wants to rest and be left along.He does get lonley sometimes and I feel sorry that he has to even live this way. Man can you imagine being stuck in a world and have to pretend that you don”t exist. Well I wish it could be different for him. Thanks Melinda

          • Elvis would not go by his twin brother’s name, becuase Jesse is also alive!

      • Wow, Please send me a link of where Priscilla has said jesse garon presley is alive. She is right! I haven’t heard it from her. Jon Cotner has released 2 books, in which he tells us exactly who he is! He also speaks luve on DVD telling us who he is. Jon Cotner is a real Loving & compasionate man with feelings. You can order his 2 books on his website at joncotner.com. The truth will set these arguments free. Your answer is in your post, you are so close. God Bless!

        • Jeffrey,

          I have that link and more like it, but I think your a Scam!!!!! You keep sending people to the wrong address, why? You talk as if you know Jon and the Bible study material, yet you post the wrong address, your a scammer!!!!

          Prove us wrong start posting the correct web address!!!!



  24. bil.mousseau says:

    Oh my flipping. Goodness Jon cotner is Elvis I just. Played his music

  25. I dont have any “need” to think Elvis is alive, I just cannot get past the inconsistent death reports, the gravestone name error, Lisa Marie’s skirmishness of the issue and the absolutely uncanny looks and voice of one Jon Cotner.
    ‘Jon Cotner’ in ” Home Alone 2″ (his looks and nervousness to the camera (using Elvis’ trademark shake of the head too lol), like he is testing the public) are convincingly Elvis. I think he is alive and that within my lifetime it will be revealed. No I am not over 40 nor am I a fervent Elvis fan! Stop assuming we are all stupid to think he alive, its valid! Just google Jon Cotner and open your mind to not believe everything you are media fed – geez

    • i think h,es a live cos theres so many different stories about elvis most of it isnt true like elvis supose to of been constapated cos of his bad foofd intake yet another story says he kept going off stage to change his clothes cos he kept poo ing himself so which is it

  26. I saw elvis a lanikai beach in 2011 while on holiday. I approached him and had a chat with him he has aged gracfully and told me everything. Gave him a hug and walked away happy and crying at the same time. Long live the king of rock & roll.

  27. Yes e faked it. For the money. WOuldnt you. I would. I think somewhere in his bathroom is a hidden door or panel and there is where he left and his entourage members brought in the body double. Man i would too. he could not go on touring past that age. too old. and besides he was and still is the king he needed to go relax n bang babes n spend his loot ya kno. Peace e u deserved it man good luck ok!

    • no he didnt fake his own death for the money he would of faked it cos his life and families life was in danger the mafia threatened his family that they were going to kill them if elvis testified in court about there drugs thing and elvis lost a lot of money from the mafia

    • ian harrison says:

      To the person called me .i agree with you i have read there is a back door to the bathroom also a stairway from kitchen to bathroom.could have carried subs body up there from poolhouse ,i am totally understanding people saying cotner is the twin,would explain a lot.its just that i can’t get the skin indentation above Elvis’s left eyebrow and Cotners,it is in same place exactly!! I looked it up how Elvis got it one says he was beaten up really bad,which worried Gladys,another person says it is from measles or something,i looked at early Elvis pics and its not there

  28. Yes E faked it. he had too he could not go on touring as an aging man…

  29. I saw this ad on a Facebook swap page hosted by a radio station. This guy called in wanting to sell this Elvis item. Strange….


  30. I wanted to find out where one of the posters saw the interview where Priscilla says what she did about Jesse Garon Presley being alive. Somebody who would know told me that it is “possible” that the lady who assisted the doctor in the births of the twins kept Jesse, as the Presley’s could not afford both. It came up in an unrelated court case 20 plus years after Elvis “died”.

    Also, on a funny note, if you ever doubted if Elvis lived past 1977, explain why Michael Jackson’s face kept requiring plastic surgery, LOL.

    • Right on Girl! Was the nurses name robinson ir martin? Is she still living? How can I find info on the court case? You’ve got to read Jon’s 2 books! They are available at joncotner.com God Bless!

      • Jeffrey,

        There you go again, posting the wrong address!!!!

        The correct address is :


        But I guess you already knew that didn’t you linda? Scammer!!!!!!!


  31. Larry,

    You say you have 100’s of hours in research time spent on the Elvis mystery and its al dead ends? And, even Elvis’s step brothers couldn’t point you in the right direction?

    I’m willing to bet your research techniques aren’t very sound, but no worries you can buy the book and watch the movie in the years to come.

    Elvis Lives : )

  32. Ask

  33. Larry, excuse me but if knew anything about investigations last thing you are going to do is as ONES directly involved if they did it ? Da Larry, by the way did you sell the last drugs to Whitney Houston. Wait, don’t answer that because i may incriminate you.
    OH, but wait we don’t have rights anymore in America since the Army can arrest you
    and hold you indefinitely. Maybe, I just call Homeland Security and Report you for being STU——PAT.

  34. Jons not gone says:

    Yes, its true… I admit it.. I had no choice but to fake it but no worries.. it all turned out for the best! Anybody who wants to find me… I hide in plain sight…

    Hallelujah, praise the Lord!

    (by the way, I’m not saying I didn’t experiment in my younger days… who didn’t? although don’t believe everything u read about me… they try to tempt me to expose the truth.. and the truth will set us free..Amen)

    • Why are hiding elvis! there’s no sense of faking your death if you are super famous! we all miss you! show yourself on the news! I’ve been trying to prove your alive for 1 year! PS: email me your current location and age so I can prove to the world that you are alive!

    • you my friend are not elvis so why pretend you are and post a comment on here saying you are that is sick elvis doesnt want to be found if he is alive he just wants to be left alone so get real and get alife

  35. Darryl Scott says:

    I know what the truth is and I do not believe in “Space Aliens” I do know that you young Obama voters are help bringing a Socialist government to America. So I say in response to that, just like what Charleton Heston Said with a rifle in one hand and that was and is ‘Over my dead body’.

  36. I started researching Elvis’s death in 2007. I have gone to Graceland and even talked to his step brothers. After 3 years and following every lead to its dead end, I know Elvis Died in 77. Alot of his family sold everything the man gave them even stole things out of Graceland and sold it. One cousin even sold a picture of Elvis in his coffin. Now, ask your self this, if any of them knew Elvis faked his death don’t you think they would sale him out? Any questions feel free to ask me, I can tell you I have 100’s of hours on this. All of the stuff that you read is very old information. But there is good money keeping the story going! Lol I will leave you with this, the of Elvis in the coffin shows white carpet. The carpet was red at Graceland when he died. My guess the picture was black and white and someone colored it later. Another shame about visiting graceland is that Priscilla changed it back to the way it looked when she lived there..

    • Polly Katz says:

      Hmmmm…really? Even If I happen to know otherwise personally?

      The photo? … More doctoring.

      The image died, not the man.

      Skepticism is an unbelief in cause and effect.
      Everything is an anomaly.

  37. Kevin,

    Thank you so much for your insight and intellect, jeez it all makes sense
    now, why didn’t I think of it. Well at least we have you…….

    You might try doing some research before you write!

    And for the record he never had a problem with pills, what he had a problem with
    was fame! And he made the ultimate sacrifice and walked away from it! And yes
    he did fake his death and it was orchestrated at the highest level! That’s the truth!

    And yes he’s still alive and quite happy, but like most dullards you’ll have to read the
    book to believe it.

    Long live my friend, Elvis lives!


    • ian harrison says:

      jeff, totally agree with you but nobody on this forum has mentioned the real giveaway clue,which is elvis and jons skin indentation aboveleft eyebrow ,he has a pic on youtube 4get which song,he has a black beard and hair,gold glasses with TCB on side but under the name Luke Tieppo,take a few letters out and you have an anagram of TUPELO,

      • Ian,

        Luke is not Jon or Elvis! Luke is someone who has said some terrible things about Jon, luke is best left alone, there’s a lot of hate in that young man. I can tell you this cause I know! Luke is not a friend of Jon or Elvis!

      • That was a chicken pox scar over Elvis’ eyebrow and the chances that a twin would have the same “pock mark” are astronomical. Cotner is not Elvis or Jesse, although there is a chance that Jesse did live and Elvis was never aware of it prior to 77. The possibility of Jesse being alive came up in a court case totally unrelated to Elvis in the 90s. It came to the attention of Elvis Presley Enterprises legal team. That’s all I was entitled to know. Attorney client privilege and all that stuff.

        • Lol, Attorney client privilege? I don’t think you should say anything if thats the case!!!
          And thats me asking nicely!!!

          • Actually, I was told this out of the blue maybe 6 or 7 years ago, and it was only when I started asking questions the attorney indicated that he couldn’t tell me anything more specific than that. After all, what he said was “it was a possibility that Jesse lived, which came up in a legal case totally unrelated to Elvis”. So he really didn’t “tell” me anything.

            I understood, but it sure fired up my curiosity !!

  38. Jons not gone says:

    All this publicity after the death of my alter-ego… finally my fans know the truth about me, and I am glad that when I do finally pass away my fans will know that I reformed and lived a faithful life to the real King of Kings – God the Heavenly Father.

    I hope they have mini disc players in heaven.. so all my fans will not be disappointed Amen.

  39. I understand that people don’t like their hero’s to go away, and it means a small piece of themselves died as well but……..I think it’s safe to assume that the man passed away. Witness protection……really? Ever see Goodfella’s? Than man really is in the protectiin program…..and he has his own website, makes trip to the Howard Stern show to be interviewed, appears on TV.

    I understand that it is romantic for some to entertain the idea of a conspiracy theory, but really? He had a wee bit of a problem with a couple pills and was a smidge overweight and his weak heart gave out. He’s gone, just like JFK, Jesse James, John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Michael Jackson, etc. But his music will live on forever. Long may me reign!

  40. Yes he did. Why? Wouldn’t you…

  41. Dan,

    When Elvis’s grave stone is moved next to his beloved mother Gladys grave stone
    then he’s really gone! Until that time he’s alive and well, living a very private life PERIOD!

    • Have you ever considered that the bodies that are buried at Graceland might not be at the same location as the tombstones are? But somewhere else on that massive property?

  42. Dan,

    Elvis Aron Presley the image did die Aug. 16, 1977, but the man himself did not

  43. Elvis died in 77. Period. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY.
    All so called, EVIDENCE is hear say and or urban legend. The only REAL proof would be Elvis himself.
    On one hand you people say he is in witness protection, then you say you saw him at a concert walking around!!!! HUH? There is no valid proof he is still alive or was past
    Aug of 77. Those are the facts. Think about it. Would he VANISH on the story that he fell off the toilet face down? Surely Elvis would’ve come up with a more sensational way to disappear. Come on people!

  44. Faye Mounce says:

    Thank you Sir for saying the things you have said. Elvis is still alive. I know it in my heart.

    • God Bless You Faye!
      The truth is written in his 2 books st joncotner.com

      • I often wonder if you try to pretend being me, you write as if you know Jon and details about him, yet you screw up his proper website address, to an address thats a scam!

        His Proper website address is:


        Get it right!


  45. Darryl Scott says:

    Just call and Ask them why is Elvis Moving about in and out of Graceland looking like a and old geeser.
    They know he is coming and going. And his name is still on the title of the property deed. Dead men
    do not own property. It is transferred to the next of in line to inherit the estate.
    Even the Post office knows he is alive, when I spoke to the head of the legal Department at the Post Office back in 2001. The woman incharge of the Legal Department was Linda Payne Powell. I asked her why they are commemorating Elvis even when he is still alive. She said how you know and I said I had pictures and I worked with The Los Angeles Herald Examiner, which did not exist at that time because it had closed some years earlier. She said wait a minute. She went off the phone, just like Michelle Bega did
    when I had called her. Then when she finally got back on the phone she said she had someone to talk to me. It was a man who asked only questions and said to me “who are you and why did you need to know.”
    At this point he said he was trying to tract my landline telephone number. Then Asked me if I was in Los Angeles but I was calling from the Wine Country in Sonoma California which was Santa Rosa. They did eventually tract me because I was sending The Book Gail Brewer Giorgio wrote all over the country to News outlets and publishers. The ” Elvis Files”
    They even sent a black Ops drone plane over my house in the middle neighborhood which is close by the
    old Oakland Raiders work-out place they used to stay at here in Santa Rosa, California. The Headhlight
    simulated Venus in the night Sky and even ovulated like as if you were watching the planet through a telescope. All in all best thing to do is keep asking questions because the big-guy’s get nervous.

    • elvis.s name will allways be on the front gates at grace land wether hes dead or a live he was famous

      now if the queen died you wouldnt take her name off from the palace would you no her family will carry on with the palace withe her name on it

      just the same as elvis,s family will and they use it as a tour guide for people

    • What are you smoking? Drones? Come on man. The KING is dead.
      Show me Elvis in person and I ll say I m wrong. If not, move on with your life.

  46. Jeff are you the Guy from Virginia — You know the Elvis Nut — Phil Achetson ? Phil is not really a nut that just a term coined for someone like Phil who is really knowledgable about Elvis.

    And the lady who is Maria on here are you the Maria Columbus who used to live in Daly City California
    by the Ocean. She knew Elvis very well and she disappeared. You can’t even find her anywhere ?

    • Darryl, I am not Phil Achetson, or any other person, just a curious soul like everyone else.
      Just to clear the air I don’t have any definitive information just my own researched assumptions.

      I have said in the past that I think if Elvis is alive than my bet is “Jon cotner”, but with that being said if I’m wrong which I could be, I am also fine with that as well. Listen in my house we love the King of Rock n Roll, but we have also really come to enjoy Mr. Cotner. Listen I have never known Elvis or Jon other than listening to his bible studies or his Renditions of Elvis Songs, really that is the truth!

      I guess I did give you some heck, cause you listed a address on this board, I apologize.

      In my heart I really hope Elvis is alive, I really do, but truthfully I don’t really know anything.

      Good Luck! ; )

      • j0hn contor is not elvis but i believe johnny harra could be if you look at elvis at 42 then watch an live interview with johnny harra he says with his doctor when was supose to of said elvis,s doctor and hes the same guy in a you tube video i saw of a guy stoking horses wondering about in the middle of no were and johnny harra said it wasnt him which it looks exsactly like him if it isnt which he claims its not then either it was elvis or johnny harra is elvis but its funny how they said that johnny harra died at 68 which i do not believe so is elvis using johnny harra,s name cos he looks like elvis who knows theres so many people who looks like elvis elvis himself could come out of hidding and pretend hes an elvis impersonator cos no one knows what he would look like today he could easily get away with it and you never know he could of done this all ready if he has then dont you get the feeling elvis is laughing at us

        • You dont know how close to the truth you really are. Elvis is now gone passed March 30,2011 http://www.johnnyharrathelegend.net/

          • if johnny harra died at the age of 93 in 2011 then whos nameb is elvis gonna take now if you see a guy who looks like elvis and exsactly like how johnny harra is then u,l know its elvis cos theres so many elvis look alikes he could take any of there names and he could pay them for doing it as elvis,s home is making more money now

          • Wrong!!!!!!!!!! But, God rest Johnny’s Soul, he was a friend of Elvis’s……

          • ian harrison says:

            To Jack,you said to another post’you don’t know how close you are’ i have seen on web somewhere a secret letter from elvis stating Jonnie o harra was actually his real secret brother,born 11th july 1946,and even had this date on a car in background of one of his films,am i close!! I also only just noticed on youtube on the Jesse dna thing they produce a scarf that says on it Elvis wore this and in the foreground is the name Jonnie o harra,have i looked uncovered something ?

        • Dr Ted Leon says:

          I was (one of ?) Johnny Harra’s doctors in Las Vegas. He was performing at the Golden Nugget (as I remember) when Elvis died. Major Riddle, owner the Silverbird Hotel offerred him alot of money to be “Elvis”. He was managed by Glen Pace at the time. HIs show moved over to the Silverbird, with the famous drummer, Bobby Morris as the very capable band leader. NOBODY at the time, of which I was aware, looked or souded more like Elivis than Johny Harra. Johnny WAS/IS NOT Elvis. Let Johnny Rest In Peace. He never claimed to be Elvis, or ever lied, to my knowledge about being Elvis.

        • ian harrison says:

          Hi Maria ,i have seen a secret letter somewhere on net by elvis saying Jonnie was his REAL secret brother born 7,11,46 i think,it is on a car in background in one of his films

        • tigerman says:

          Its johnny o harra sitting in that chair at the poolhouse at Graceland in 1978,,,,,he was rehearsing this role for the movie this is Elvis….the photo mike joesph took is that of johnny.

          • EPBLVD says:

            I don’t think the dates work out for that to be Johnny Harra. I have often thought it might be. But Joseph took the photo on New Year’s Eve day, 1978. They didn’t release This Is Elvis until 1981. And Johnny was only there for a few days of shooting, it wasn’t like a huge movie undertaking, most of the movie was old clips. So Johnny being in that chair would be at best a year and half before they filmed those scenes.

          • I will admit it looks far more like Johnny Harra than Elvis sitting there, but really its such A low quality image, No One Will Ever Know The Truth!

    • maria Columbus proberly dissapeared cos so she wouldnt spill the beans about elvis being alive or she could be dead her self we just dont know
      but what you can do is go on an elvis tour at graceland next time they have one and if you see elvis,s bed room slip a letter between the covers they are bound to read it its just a thought
      i do believe hes still live , they reason why he carnt be found is cos his life and his families was threatened, if it wasnt for that dont you think how its hurting him not been able to tell his fans hes ok cos of the mafia he may want to come back but he carnt there could be more to his sory than people know i just hope that if he is still alive and i hope he,s ok and happy and well ,also elvis gave about 25 years of his life to people and now he whats to live his life in a normal way just like us and good luck to him ,

  47. I believe Jeff knows more than he is telling since he knows that the address in Beverly Hills is associated with Priscilla Presley.

    He did you see the incredulous interview with Prsicilla Presley 2 years ago at the August 16th celebration of Elvis 33 years gone, right before intermission Priscilla Presley tried to say that all the sightings were of Jesse Garon Presley who really did not die at birth, Yeah right she believes in L. Ron Hubbard as Christ God.

  48. Call Michelle Bega Priscilla Presley attorney in Los Angeles, tell her you have taken pictures of Elvis
    at one of the ” Elvis the Concert’s.” Then tell her you will publish them saying these are Elvis Presley.
    First, she will tell you, ‘don’t you know Elvis Presley is dead?’ Then she will go off the telephone for several minutes and comeback and say you can’t publish these photos. Because its illegal to do so since
    Elvis is protected by the Federal Government.But she will not say protected by the Federal Government.
    And that is precisely why Elvis can not comeback. He has signed a contract with the Devil.

  49. Yes Just ask Jon Cotner

  50. Elvis Grave Marker is AARON sound familiar.

    • Darryl,

      Thanks for the info, but for goddness sakes man don’t post an address. Its one thing
      to share the happiness of letting the world know the king faked his death, but its a whole other thing giving address. I wouldn’t do that, cause neither the king or priscilla would do that to you.

      • work this out why is elvis,s real death information only to be read after 50 years after hes dead is that because he will really be dead then 50 yrs after hes dead means he would be 92 then and at that age most people are dead any way so why 50 yrs after hes dead the real cause of death can be announce is that because hes still alive very much so , elvis cannot come back to us cos of his and his famillies safety he has to put his life and theres first before his fans

        • Maria, that is an urban legend. Elvis’ autopsy will never be released. It was a private autopsy and belongs to the family. However there are some copies but they are in secure hands (or safes).

    • there are two a.s in aaron cos it said that elvis changed it to AARON instead of ARON cos some thing to do with his dead twin it was in memory of him but that didnt make sense cos his dead twin was called
      jesse garon presley so i believe that elvis is a live and hes letting some one know hes still alive

  51. Elvis is never going to come out now that he is grossing $ 50,000,000,00. per year.
    His daughter does not have her name on the Graceland Mansion and she only recieved $150,000,000.00 dollars in the year 2000. And his Estate has grossed well
    over 750,000,000.00 million dollars since his aledged death. There is a 2,000,000.00
    million dollar Insurance policy still awaiting to be cashed.
    One other fact is during the civil war High ranking southern soliders faked there death and avoided war crimes by doing just that by faking their death. But if they wanted to let their families know they were alive by mis spelling their Grave Marker.

    • Good than I’m so Happy & Very Glad that Elvis Aron Presley is still alive and doing very well he earned it. I also hope he is still fighting against drugs. I never felt in my heart that he died when they said he did and still fell in my heart that is is still alive. Long Live Not Just The King Of Rock & Roll but I also loved his Gossiple Music and All Of His Movies. Elvis you have and always will be with us no matter where you are or where you may go. I read a few lines up about you still being at Graceland and sneaking in and out well you also earned that, you gave the world so much with just being you! You earned everything you have been doing since your fake death. I don’t blame you at all no one should, they need to walk a mile in your shoes. I will always Love You and I mean the person you are too not jut the singer or actor. Hugs xoxo Laura Lee Easton

  52. Yes Elvis is still Alive sorry for you non believers but he did fake his death and he lives part time in the Graceland Mansion and at 1167 Summit Drive in Beverly Hills
    California. I saw him in the year 2000 at Davie Symphony Hall at one of his “Elvis in Concert” this is the virtual Concert that has been traveling around the country and the
    world for the last 15 or so years. Witness Protection Program motto is hide them in plain sight.

    • yes i believe that elvis faked his death and he is alive and so is micheal jackson there is solid proof that elvis is a live

  53. Hello,I am grateful that so many around the world continue to keep keep elvis alive. I am sure that he had many reasons to consider that ultimately forced him to fake his own death. His family would be #1 then him self of course,due to the many death threats he had received but i think his drug use was a major factor in getting out and that his body just couldn’t do it anymore and i am sure there are reasons the public will never know of. and where ever he is now at the age of 72, I wish him luck and may god bless him for all the memories he gave us,and i support him,why: because he earned it.

    • Yes I agree, he has earned his privacy and his new found anonymity, he will be 77yrs young: ) this Jan 8. I hear his health is still good and he’s been busy doing projects.

      God Bless you Mr. Presley, Jesus loves You, and so do Millions od others!

  54. Hi Jeff

    Wow, thank you!

    I’ve spent a considerable amount of time mulling over your last post. I’ve done what you suggested and viewed the interview and looked at Jon’s website. I understand the points that you’re making.

    I have faith in you and the information you’ve provided but why are you posting on here? Just curious and you don’t have to answer.

    Thank you so much for all the help you’ve given me so far.

    Kind regards

    • Hi victoria,

      That’s a fair question, I guess I’m hopeful that other people will get to know the truth.
      I was a little boy when Elvis died/retired, we all thought he had really passed away, I remember my mom crying in the driveway cause she didn’t want me to see her, we played elvis music every weekend, the news was devastating to us all. And well you know life goes on I grew up, mom and dad retired, I’m married with children of my own, but as luck would have it I’m a very curious person by nature and have been a researcher on many subjects. Back in late january of this year I was sent a link by a fellow researcher/ colleague of mine in regards to this jon cotner / mystery man/ elvis. I ignorantly brushed it off, he sent again I ignored again finally he called me and I took the time to listen to a couple of voice samples. Immediately I was shocked, it just sounded to good to be TRUE, but my back ground is engineering. So we grabbed voice samples from the sixties and the seventies and did some analysis. It was a perfect match voice inflections, dipthongs everything! I was shocked, I called my mom at thee o’clock in the morning made her open her email and listen, she knew the moment she heard jon talk and sing that Mr. Jon was indeed the king.

      Now since that time I have strung together all the pieces, but if I could give you the simple answer to why I believe he did its this. Elvis Presley the image was too much to bare, I believe if he didn’t do this perhaps he would of never gotten to live the life he truly desired. I don’t blame him, and of course selfishly I want him to comeback and tell his story now, and not after he’s really gone. But if this is all me and my family ever get than I am forever grateful, he’s been wonderful to us, plus the bible studies are just amazing! I know he’s helped me and my family.

      So to answer your question again, I did this out of love and kindness, so in closing I hope you have seen a glimpse, but its up to you now.

      May God Bless,

      ps, I will not be posting here anymore, I have given the truth its up to good people to do the rest.

      • Hi Jeff

        I love your story on why you’ve been on here, great answer !
        I always believed Elvis had passed away, I still continued to watch his films and listen to his music but when I reached my teens my interest fizzled out. It was only while I was viewing something else on YouTube that I stumbled upon ‘the hoax’ theory. This was on the 15th August and i’ve spent a great deal of time investigating since. How can you not become drawn in by the spirit of such a fantastic guy ?

        I’ve already watched the clip you’re referring to and I did wander why this wonderful film had ‘disappeared’ somewhere, never to be released !

        Thank you so much for taking the time to help me answer my questions. I’ve enjoyed reading your thoughts and looking at your suggestions.
        I agree wholeheartedly with what you say, I too would like to know what happened before it’s too late. I guess as long as Mr Cotner is happy with his life, that’s all
        anyone can ask for !

        In the meantime I will keep watching and hoping!

        God Bless

    • Hi victoria,

      I will give you one more quick clip to mull over than I am really retiring from this blog spot.
      Go to google and type in: the truth about elvis movie trailer

      This was a major motion picture backed by hollywood, set to be released in 2007.
      watch this and tell me what you think? Wanna bet who put the “Kisbosh” on that?? 🙂

  55. I would write to you Jeff but here is the only place I can. I am definitely curious and most around me consider me to be honest, able to keep secrets and intelligent but I first have to know if it’s Jon you are talking about.

    • Yes, the man I believe to be the King is Jon. I want nothing but the best for him, you have to understand this is my opinion. Mr. Jon, has never and I repeat never claimed to be Elvis Presley,
      Ever! But if you have been a researcher as long as I have you will only come to one conclusion after about 2 to 3 weeks of research, he’s Elvis Presley. Now with that being said, I want you to know in my house we love the King of Rock N Roll, but we have also become very aware of the viscous hatred that swarms the internet when someone goes against the popular belief that Elvis
      Is dead. Remember this is about research, combined with our love of the man himself.

      Now, I can provide you with the many links to help you come to your own conclusion.
      One more thing, if Jon Cotner turns out not to be Elvis Presley I am ok with that also, we love him just the same.

      Kindest Regards,


    • Hi Curious,

      I never heard back from you but I have posted my response to you in regards to Jon.
      I’m hopeful we can explore some of the info I have compiled, I thought if your still interested, you
      can go to google and type in as follows:

      Mystery Man Sings Separate Ways 2007

      This is Jon singing acapella, you tell me what you think.

      kindest Regards,


  56. Hey Jeff you talking about Jon Cotner friend????

  57. I post on forums like this from time to time, for the most part people don’t really look
    into the recommendations I give. For anyone who is really, really serious I can give some clues, but understand one thing Elvis Presley the man representing the image isn’t returning! But, if your looking for a man who has intimate knowledge of Mr.Presley, and for reason unknown(wink) sings, talks, laughs and resembles a 76 year old version of him, I may be able to help. 🙂

    Now of course I cannot tell you this gentleman is anyone other than who he claims to be now (wink), so you’ll have too decide for yourself…..

    If your interested post or write to me, kind, genuine, loving, intelligent people will only be helped!


    • I’ve been researching the ‘Death’ of Elvis since 15th August 2011. I happened upon a website by pure chance. I knew nothing about any of this until then and am now totally intrigued and hooked! I would love to know the truth but if not, what a truly amazing man!

      • Hi victoria,

        Yes what an amazing man indeed. Victoria I can help you to the best of my ability,
        but I have to warn you, there are some very disturbed people in this area, you have to remain resilent and stick to the research. And at the end of the day always go with your heart, elvis presley was / is an amazing man.

        Start with something simple like this: go to google and type in this exactly as I say
        “For fans of jon cotner” watch this, pay special attention to lisa marie presleys response to a poignant question larry king asks. Replay it several times……

        After that write me back….. this is just the tip of the iceberg. ….

        Kindest regards,


        • Hi Jeff

          I’ve just viewed what you suggested and it’s something I’ve seen before. It’s certainly a very strange reaction from Lisa Marie. She looks like she is about to get up and leave. Fascinating! There are just so many things to look at, there are not enough hours in the day!

          Why are there disturbed people in this area? It’s certainly perplexing.
          Keeping an open mind!

          Best wishes

          • Hi victoria,

            Now go to google again and type in:

            Jon cotner – I’m so lonely I could cry aug. 2010. Mov

            I am not sure why so many folks post negative hurtful things, but they do, its a shame cause a lot of really good people get turned off immediately once they read all the lies. Also, steer clear of linda hood sigmon and her elvis is jesse junk, elvis has never and I mean never been living life as his deceased twin brother! You will have to trust me on this one!


      • Hi victoria,

        Now go to google again and type in the following:

        “Jon cotner singing several powerful songs”

        Remember this is all being done acapella by a man in his early seventies at the time.
        after you listen to that, type in:

        “Jon cotner singing he’ll have to go aug.2010.mov”

        Now type in to google:

        “Mystery man sings unchained melody”

        Please understand there are a lot of people saying horrible things, just be patie
        nt, I have volumes to share, just trying to pique your interest for now…

        Let me know what you think…….

        • Hi Jeff

          I’ve viewed all the things you’ve suggested and I can see why people would think that Jon Cotner is Elvis. Even if that isn’t the case, he still has a fantastic voice, even without taking his age into consideration.

          I did think for a while that they were one and the same person (especially when I viewed the voice comparison on YouTube) but then I came across some
          information saying that Jon Cotner was formerly known as Dale Eli Culbertson and Larry Blong. It said he was an impersonator when Elvis was ‘alive’ and was jealous of Elvis success. This left me really confused. I feel like I’m going round in circles!

          There certainly seems to be a lot of animosity around. Do you have any more information Jeff?

          What an interesting subject :0)

          Best Wishes

          • Hi Victoria,

            Yes, I understand the excitement and the confusion / frustration. In regards to Dale and Larry, neither, I repeat neither are Jon Cotner, you will have to trust me on that. Victoria, there is so much to go through, it would be hard to do it via this blog but we can look at some pertinent things.

            1. Elvis loved gospel music, and was very much a Christian.
            2. Elvis was known to have small gatherings where he went over bible scriptures, and
            his beliefs and interpretation of the passages.
            I would like to have you view a MSNBC clip with Matt Lauer and Priscilla Presley, in the clip priscilla is asked if Elvis were alive today what do you think he would be doing.
            Watch Carefully! Priscilla responds, well he might be doing some gospel music, and the bible was always very important to him so he may be involved with something along that line. Hint, Hint, Wink, Wink.

            Watch for yourself:


            cut and paste into the browser tool bar at the top, now scroll down to the very bottom of the page to watch the video clip. Do This!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Now you need to be very aware of the fact Jon Cotner has a Bible study series volumes 1 through 10 and they are amazing! I have them only a real christian and someone with real intellect and passion for the subject could be doing this.
            Jon, also has a Gospel album, a Honky Tonk album and a vintage Elvis album released on the 25th of this month. Now before you hit me with too many questions for this blog go to Jon-cotner.com and look for yourself. You also need to know that Jon does charge for the bible studies and the recorded albums. Listen to me carefully take a real look, if your a real Elvis fan and you ever wanted a chance to correspond with the King, this is your chance! None of us know how much longer he will be doing this, there will be a lot of very surprised people when the truth finally is revealed, and trust me it will be.

            Victoria , there is so much more to share with you, but you need to satisfy your own desires first, look into what I provided. Also, our family is friends with Mr. Jon, we have interacted and been involved with the Paltalk sessions, all I can say is AMAZING.

            Kindest Regards,

      To Jeff,hi just love your posts you have a lot of knowledge on the cotner scenario,i am captivated by it since i stumbled upon it after hearing the jon burrows/jesse tracks,the real giveaway to jon being Elvis is the skin indtation above Elvis left eyebrow ,jon has same mark in exactly the same place,

  58. Elvis presley the image died august 16, 1977, but the man himself is very much alive and well! There is much to be told about this wonderful man, just about everything on the net is very sensational and very hurtful halftruths and outright lies!

    I am 100% positive elvis would love to embrace his real fans, and share his love and laughter with all, it is just not happening yet!


  59. it would be great that the king were alive still…but the true is that good ol elvis died because he poped one too much pills…..but that is the way of the stars…short intense lives…the only thing that is good bout his decent is that he will always be young, strong and succesfull on our memories…..


  60. kaitlyn says:

    I really don’t know what to believe there are so many different stories, but I’m a huge fan so if he really did die in 1977 I say just let the man rest in peace. <3


  61. Elizabeth Espenlaub says:

    One more thing check out home alone movie and watch when the family go to the airport to try to get home and watch the gentlemen in the line behind the tell me that isn’t Elvis. He has all the likings of Elvis and the way he shakes his head he would do that at all his concerts. Can anybody prove that it wasn’t Elvis in that movie? I don’t think anyone could.

  62. Elizabeth Espenlaub says:

    Yes I think Elvis is still alive till this day. Never collected on insurance and his father never excepted the America flag for his death. And I bet if a family member were to ask to dig up the grave they would be surprised. Waxed figure would be there. But no family member really wants to know the truth because they already know it.

  63. greg funyak says:

    elvis did faked is death

  64. greg funyak says:

    elvis aron presley is still alive he lives in kalamazoo michigan

  65. PAUL ONEAL says:

    There are plenty of people that look like Elvis. I have a book with a German soldier from ww2 that looks exactly like Elvis. All these sightings around the world could just be his doppelgangers. I am not saying that he couldn’t fake his death. Tom Parker created a new identity for himself, so i am sure he could have done the same for Elvis. I believe in the multiple earth theory, so on another earth Elvis Presley is still alive. If you have seen the show “Sliders” you know what i am talking about.

  66. Jon Smith says:


    2010 minus 1977 = 33.

    You said Presley has been dead for “over 35 years”. Just telling you, before an insulting message comes your way from a fanatic.

    God bless you,


  67. proof of says:

    theres really no proof either way dead or alive i would like to see for myself some real evidence either way ,because the stories told by the people who knew him really arent backed up with proof,,and they all tell a different story

  68. Brittney says:

    I don’t beleive he is still alive no, but if you want anything your saying to be creditable, you might want to proof read..

  69. i think elvis is stuped and he is in hell

  70. on the plus side of him faking his death people cant say he died on the potty…. Cause he really didnt he died on stage from a heart attack caused by the drugs. people are stupid for making stuff up

  71. He is alive I saw him in Brazil 1980

  72. NO I don’t believe he is still alive.

  73. Elvis died in 1977, end of.

    • I must say that I believe that Elvis really did die in 1977 too but why did you say it in such an adamant manner?
