Filmmaker Offers $3.000.000 For Elvis Sighting

August 15, 2006 | Other
Documentary film-maker Adam Muskiewicz is offering a $3 million (GBP1.7 million) reward to any person with legitimate proof that Elvis Presley is alive and well. Muskiewicz had been investigating Presley for two years, interviewing conspiracy theorists, experts, authors and close friends of the star. He has been collecting information through his new website, ElvisWanted.com and plans to release his documentary "The Truth About Elvis" in August 2007. The film's release will coincide with the 30th anniversary of Presley's death.

Also, from the same documentary according to a Google update: Presley's father plotted King's bodysnatch. This theory first floated in 1977 and raised up periodically since then

Elvis Presley's father was the man who secretly plotted to snatch The King's dead body from his mausoleum resting place - to convince Memphis officials that the rocker should be buried at his Graceland home.

The bodysnatching incident stunned Elvis fans just a week after he was buried at Forest Hill Midtown Cemetery in 1977, and now one of the grave robbers is speaking out about the plot in a new film.

In The Truth About Elvis, Ronnie Lee Adkins insists he met with Presley's father Vernon in a parking lot to arrange the theft of the King's body.

He says: "He asked me if there was anything that might be able to be done to get Elvis moved from Forest Hills Cemetery.

"I said: 'The best thing to do is put him in a mausoleum, where it's easier to get to, it's inside work and that way we won't be seen.'"

Former FBI secret agent Ic Smith backs up Adkins' claim in new documentary, adding: "The Presley family had gone to the Memphis City Council and asked for permission to bury Elvis at Graceland and there was no provision for burying people in one's yard."

Presley now lies at rest alongside his mother, grandmother and father at Graceland, where his grave is visited by millions of fans every year.

You have got to be kidding???? Somebody please tell me this is a joke!!!! This guy's offering this large amount of money for something he can't get. There is no proof because unfortunately, Elvis is no longer with us.

He knows he won't have to pay out, and has succeeded in generating considerable PR at zero cost....

Don't believe that the City Council would not have granted permission for Elvis to be buried at Graceland. Just because there was no current provision to allow such a burial at the time does not mean that an exception could be made and if ever there was anyone for whom such an exception should be made it would be Elvis. Obviously -- it's what they did in the end anyway.
