Conspiracy theorists are insisting a new picture taken at Elvis Presley’s former home proves he is still alive. After long insisting the singer faked his own death in 1977 to escape the pressures of fame, fans are now saying the singer visited his Graceland home on his 82nd birthday last week.
The images show a large man with white hair and a white beard standing among the crowd as a cake-cutting ceremony took place last Sunday on the front lawn of the King’s house. He is wearing a dark jacket, a black baseball cap as well as sunglasses on as the birthday celebrations take place at the home in Memphis, Tennessee. Since being posted on the Facebook page Elvis Presley is Alive, some fans are convinced the man in the picture is the spitting image of what the star would have looked like as an older man.
They also point to the three security men in the back of the picture claiming it proves they were trying to guard the music icon. One fan wrote on the page: “I did notice that man at a few points during the video and wondered if it was him. “I thought, he’s hiding in plain sight again. The people next to him probably have no idea.”
However, others on the page were also convinced the man in the picture is Jesse Garon Presley, the twin who was stillborn 30 minutes before Elvis. But equally, there was a lot of scepticism, as some pointed out the mysterious man’s facial features don’t resemble the rock ‘n’ roll legend. Elvis died on August 16, 1977, at the age of just 42. His body was found in the bathroom at Graceland and the cause of death was a heart attack.
