Who Murdered Elvis

It’s been whispered about for years in some circles. But now, one man is going public with a provocative theory about what really happened to Elvis Presley 35 years ago today. Steven Ubaney’s new book “Who Murdered Elvis” is now available. It’s a theory even Elvis’ co-star Suzanna Leigh believes.

Presley's father knew he was murdered, but his cries for an investigation were blocked by every level of the government - why? On November 20th, 2008, two years after the government rejected reopening the Presley case with concrete evidence, Elvis researcher Jared Parker was brutally murdered. Parker was going to expose newly uncovered letters written by Elvis implicating Mob and FBI operatives who were threatening his life. Who's behind the cover up? "It seems almost as if the City of Memphis itself does not care to know the truth about the death of it's most famous citizen"

More Elvis trash. I'll save my money for something of Elvis more worthy.

What I find remarkable is that after he died in the bathroom, the rubber duck industry fully exploted.. Seems like a set up..

tcb1974, to answer your question, Yes. Elvis was worth more dead than alive, if he had survived that fateful night, The Colonel would have never loosened his steel claw on Elvis' career, more Vegas, another satellite show, more of his publishing goons supplying songs. Remember and its only a rumour but Colonel fled his native land as a young man the same night a lady was murdered, he lived as an illegal alien in the States all his life and owed the Vegas casinos millions in gambling debts. Elvis had a doctors knowledge on prescription drugs and was always careful about his image so i do not believe for one minute that he intended to die on the bathroom floor, face down with his pants around his ankles. Somebody messed with his pill sachets, these questions need to be answered. Within a week all his records started selling and everybody cashed in with their gory tales of excess and made millions. His last day he seemed healthy, going to the fairgrounds, working out and the last fan snapped photo at the Graceland gates, he looked pretty good, by no means obese.

Elvis took his own life via years of neglect through a deep sadness that only he understood. A broken heart, finally couldn't take it any more.

Snowplow are you suggesting that Elvis was worth dead more than alive? This seems somewhat doubtful as Elvis was offered millions of dollars for performances in the UK, Australia and Japan. The Colonel declined these fantastic offers.

Certain questions need to be asked 35 years on, who delivered him his last sachet of prescription medicine? Was he not on a detox programme, what was in the sachet? Did he check or just take them? Why were all medicines removed? Why was the area not sealed off and properly investigated? Elvis' reputation had already been tarnished in the press with tales of heavy drug use, so if somebody wanted him knocked off, everyone would believe the whitewash. I'm not saying this is true, but it is possible, a lot of books have been written and hundreds of millions of dollars were made because of Elvis' early demise.

Born in to extreme poverty and then at the age of 21 earning money beyond your wildest dreams. I believe Elvis out of blind loyalty would not dismiss the Colonel as he thought he owed him too much and thought that if he did get rid then the money would disappear. This i think the Colonel knew and is where i believe the Colonel exploited Elvis and basically after 1963 drove his career in to the gutter. I don't think Elvis is blameless but i really believe the Colonel fully exploited him which ultimately lead to his destructive behaviour.

I wonder if some fans actually think Elvis was not responsible for his own choices? To me, that's worse than believing that Elvis surrendered control to the Colonel, opting instead to live in the escape mode of food and pills. Elvis could have saved himself and his career. He chose instead to flirt with death until he lost. The Colonel was not all powerful. Eddy Arnold dumped the Colonel with a telegraph that said, "Your services are no longer required. From receipt of this wire consider yourself dismissed." Done! It may have taken Elvis a bit longer to extricate himself from Tom Parker, but it was possible. The Mob, The FBI, nor the Colonel are not responsible for Elvis' demise. Sadly, Elvis himself is responsible for everything that he did in his career and in his personal life.

Using exactly the same cover picture, there is an even more bizarre publication on the market. "How Hollywood Killed JFK: Starring Elvis Presley John Wayne and Frank Sinatra - A Twisted Tinseltown Tale of Power, Greed & Revenge". This effort is a work of FICTION, which involves Elvis assassinating Kennedy with guns supplied by John Wayne... Need I say more? (& No I have not got it!)

Indeed, reportedly Elvis got badly addicted to Demerol around this time. To provide some context, methadone was applied to detox him, which is a synthetic substitute narcotic that is used for heroine addicts.
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 30, 2012report abuse
I'd say Demoral is a 'hard drug'. Its a powerful narcotic used in treating terminal cancer patients. It may not be a street hard drug like heroin, but it is just as lethal if you are careless with it.

TCB1974, about which 'hard drugs' are we talking ? Just asking ! Always El.
TCB1974 (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 30, 2012report abuse
Elvis did not take a lethal dose as far as I understand from the different medical reports. His system just collapsed after several years of abuse. His body functions were undermined slowly not with one huge lethal overdose.
snowplow floater (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 30, 2012report abuse
For a guy who knew so much about prescription drugs, it always struck me as odd that he ingested such a lethal dose, maybe whoever was delivering his sachets of various pills got the dose wrong. Goldman tried to say he deliberately ended his own life but i find that hard to believe, with his family in the house. He had a new tour and a new fiance and sounded as good as ever. He found peace in the end.

Agree EJF. Elvis was an atomic performer up to the Aloha From Hawaii special. After that he was ready and looking for a serious challenge in movies or a world tour. He started to realize during the Summer of 1973 that Colonel Parker was a problem to realize such ambitions and this resulted in a big clash in September. Elvis let himself be fooled by the tactics of Colonel Parker and lost this crucial battle in his life. The next month he would divorce from Priscilla and be hospitalized. This would also be the only period in his life that he really used hard drugs instead of medicines only. There was somewhat of a short revival after this black period with the Stax recordings and return to his hometown, but then the reality set in that there was no challenge and that he was living alone, spending lots of time alone in his bedroom. He did not get out of this depressing situation and slowly killed himself. Sad but true, although I would love to believe it was sickness like Dr Nick claims or something bad like this guy is claiming.

Lefty, I know you are being sarcastic and The Colonel may have not been directly to blame for the mass quantity of food and pills Elvis consumed. But it was he who made him do those dreadful movies with the even more dreadful soundtracks, play Vegas to death instead of doing a world tour. Hell, if it wasn't for the stubbornness of Steve Binder we would never have had the 68 Comeback Special but a boring Perry Como/Andy Williams/Humperdinck style Christmas show. All this, together with his personal problems, led to boredom which in turn led to his slow demise.
Lefty (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 29, 2012report abuse
Of course the Colonel murdered Elvis! How silly of me to think otherwise. The Colonel pinned Elvis to the floor and forced him to consume mass quantities of food and pills until Elvis died. Yeah, that's what happened.

Andy_2 is right. The Colonel did it, no doubt about it...

Might make a great fantasy movie on Sci-Fi. But it doesn't change the fact that Elvis died, so this inquiring mind does not need to know. It will not change anything that took place on 8/16/77. I will pass on this book.

The book should be titled, "Who Ripped Off Elvis Fans?" I watched a news clip of the author wherein he says that Elvis was a "credentialed drug enforcement officer." Please....what a joke! The man collected badges. Nixon gave him one. That's the story. To me, it's easier to believe the truth. Elvis died of health complications that were exacerbated by obesity and prolonged addiction to medication.

After reading 'the secret files' by john parker some years ago i'm definately in the suspicious death camp and now after all the revelations of marilyn monroe and kennedy and hundreds of other examples its not beyond belief or possibilty.

Just another inventive way of making money during a recession, and probably better than slogging away at McDonalds.

Lol. Everybody knows Elvis faked his death and was then later killed by the guy who has been pretending to be Paul McCartney since 1966 when the real Paul died.
