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 in Memphis at the Booksellers of Laurelwood. It’s a theory even Elvis’ co-star Suzanna Leigh believes.

Ubaney's theory appears to be based on his claims that Elvis used to hide federal agents who were investigating organized crime. Elvis stayed at Las Vegas hotels that were "mob friendly", which gave him opportunities to assist federal agents. He seems to also believe, though he did not say it directly in the video link you provided, that Elvis's Memphis Mafia could have been involved, as he claims Vernon had confronted MM members to demand to know what happened.

I don't buy his theory that Elvis was murdered. Everything that I have understood over the years makes it clear that Elvis voluntarily took large doses of prescription drugs, which ultimately ended his life. The MM cared about Elvis and would never become involved in some conspiracy to kill Elvis--How ridiculous! I know quite a few Elvis fans have harsh things to say about the MM, but there is no way in my mind that they would ever harm Elvis. Actually, I believe MM members tried to help him but Elvis was not willing or able to stop using prescription drugs.

So how many theory's are out there now?...This much I do know...only one could be right, but the best bet is the one that is the official account.

But there is always the possibility he is still alive!!!!
Now that would really screw-up a few screwy people.

No, I dont buy this story either...but we should have known ...another story might surface. It's way past time.....:} It sells papers & books.
Lost track of how many's out here.

Read an old book from 1979...."Elvis, Portrait of a Friend".....think some might learn,MM was just as much into "presciption meds" as Elvis. Doubtful they knew what was going on themselves .They couldn't help anyone.....

The MM clearly did NOT care about Elvis. I doubt very much if they were involved in any plot to kill him, mainly because they are too stupid to plot anything like that.

But I have never really believed that Elvis died because of an overdose of drugs. When he first died, Dr. Franscisco said that he died of a plin old heart attack. That there were drugs in his system, but not nearly enough to kill him. Then the tabloid press, along with the MM insisted that maybe he DID die of a heart attack but it had to be a heart attack BROUGHT ON by too many drugs. Then it became "he died of a drug overdose". Now Dr. Nick says, no, it was a heart attack, and the same--that he had drugs in his systsem but not enough to kill him.

Considering that the press, with the help of the MM have promoted every filthy story imaginable about Elvis and have spent over thirty years degrading his memory, I tend to think that Dr. Nick and Dr. Nichopolis were telling the truth.

But no, they did not come right out and murder him.

I think that eventually, it will be known that Elvis did not die of a drug overdose.

This was what was originally reported, but the MM and the tabloid press wanted to make sure the sleaziest image possible of Elvis was what was presented to the public.

After looking at your link I must say that there are plenty of nuts out there. I had no idea there were so many crazies making claims about Elvis, themselves being related to Elvis, attacking Lisa Marie. It's the Twilight Zone.

Wrong.

The original, pre-autopsy and speculative cause was heart attack.

After autopsy: heart attack, the primary cause of which was polypharmacy (er, that's too many drugs, stupid ...)

Ultimately, yes; the responsibility must rest with Elvis.

He had to want to stop the self-destruction, but he didn't.

In as much as we ALL contribute to our own health/death . Yes, he did.But was much more than "drugs" as many like to say.....Lifestyle, food he ate,exhaustion ,no exercise ...but a big contributer too was genetics & not facing that he needed to do what doctors tried to get him to do....take care of himself.

http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/1977/aug...

There were also rumors that the singer had a liver disease, not related to drinking.

But the official diagnoses released by his physician, Baptist Hospital and Mid-South Hospital were that he suffered from fatigue, colon obstruction, eye problems and intestinal flu, and was treated.

However, medical information released by Baptist Hospital Tuesday night showed that Presley had been admitted there three times for hypertension or high blood pressure.

Baptist Hospital admissions and diagnostic records released Tuesday night were:

Oct. 16-17, 1960, fractured fifth finger on the right hand.

Oct. 15-Nov. 1, 1973, hypertension and headache.

Jan. 28-Feb. 14, 1975, hypertension and an impacted colon.

Aug. 21-Sept. 5, 1975, hypertension and an impacted colon.

April 1-6, 1977, gastroenteritis, a strained back and mild anemia.

In June, 1975, Presley underwent an "extensive eye examination" at Mid-South Hospital for two days. It was reported then that he had recurrent eye problems

I happen to know Stephen Ubaney and have known him for approximately 20 years. He is extremely conscientous and his research is exemplary. This is his opinion/theory and whether you agree with it or not, to attack him personally shows how deplorable you are. If you don't believe his theory, don't read his book. Otherwise, shut your pieholes and don't personally attack a very honorable person and someone I am proud to call a friend. As for those of you who don't buy into his theory, I don't see your book documenting "the truth" about Elvis' passing.

It never ceases to amaze me how people can literally try to judge a book by its cover.

If the autopsy showed no swelling of the vocal chords, the body was not found in a position of comfort and no drugs were found at the scene, drugs can be ruled out as a cause of death. He was on drugs, but they didn't kill him.

The doctors who dissected Elvis heart found no gross evidence of a heart attack and no clogged arteries. Cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) can not be a cause of death because there is no beating heart to diagnose it.

Two different labs who tested tissue specimens came up with two different results that conflicted each other, the death scene was mysteriously sanitized BEFORE the investigators got there. All the notes, and photos of the death scene investigation were stolen out of the investigators car the night of Presley's death. The cover up that is going on is huge.

Presley's father, his girl friend, Security chief (who wrote The Elvis Conspiracy) and many members of the Memphis Mafia agree that foul play was obvious. Although most were great guys, the Memphis Mafia had a few bad apples in it.

I have to giggle when I hear people say that authors try to "get rich quick" on a book. Ever written a book? It takes years and countless hours of editing and research. If this guy did as much research as I think he did - the book just might be worth checking out.

Then why don't you tell us how Elvis died is your such an expert on the matter. Anyone who watched Elvis during his last few concerts, particularly his last concert, can clearly see Elvis is struggling to speak at times, indicating drug use. I believe it was Phil Esposito who talk about removing drugs or flushing them down the toilet before the paramedics arrived. Also, the Shelby County coroner, Dr. Jerry Francisco, reported the preliminary autopsy results indicated Elvis died of cardiac arrhythmia. According to the January 28, 1980, People magazine article, toxicologists did indeed find large amounts of drugs in Elvis' system. Further, all of the so-called Memphis Mafia that I have heard interviewed said Elvis abused prescription drugs. So not only do we have what appears to be concert evidence showing that Elvis was on something, such as prescription drugs during his final few concert appearances, but also, there are indeed findings by toxicologists that Elvis's system did contain a lethal combination of drugs.

Now, has there been amended toxicological findings that have been accepted by toxicologists or is this just an attempt to create another unsupported foul play conspiracy.

Great advice, fatty.
What a pity you can't follow it.
And before you can say "I didn't even read the MM books", well then, fatty, that makes you - once again - a hypocrite.
My Dearest King Elvis;

Fatty? Is that the extent of your vocabulary? Two syllables; I'm not surprised. As for labeling me a hypocrite, you come from a second rate country and therefore you don't matter. Please get a life and if you can't find something productive to do with your time, do us a favor and off yourself.

Here is a quote form the man who did the official review of Elvis's autopsy in 1994. His extensive review included autopsy photos, tissue samples, blood work, and the toxicology reports.
World renowned Coroner Dr. Joseph Davis of Dade County Florida declared after his review for the state of Tennessee: "There is nothing in any of the data that supports a death from drugs [i.e. drug overdose]. In fact, everything points to a sudden, violent heart attack." However, there is little doubt that long-term drug misuse caused his premature death.
This is on record and often overlooked by people who want to push the death by drugs.
No doubt that Elvis was an abuser of prescription meds, but they did not kill him that night.
