The King isn’t dead. At least, that’s what some people think.

Elvis Presley died on August 16th, 1977, after a myriad of health problems culminating in cardiac arrest. Or…did he?

Some fans posit that the King of Rock ‘n Roll actually faked his own death with funeral and all to get away from the fame, his debts, and maybe even Mafia threats. 

But did Elvis Presley really hoax his death? If so, how? Why? And how did this legend get started in the first place? Did Elvis really leave the building?
