Do you know how fat Elvis was.
He would have died soon after his "fake death" anyway.
He was a bad singer and a fat typical American who eats 50 times the recommended amount of food.
Yeah ok if you do not believe that he is dead and you know someone powerful then dig up his grave a have a dental comparison done.
And please get some help.

I know this is a few days late, but I have to comment on the "nose" issue. First of all, that coffin photo is obviously fake, any fool can see that. It was probably a really grainy photo doctored to the point that what was published is more illistration than photo. Second, I'm in the funeral biz and have had my fair share of toilet deaths. There is a very high probability that Elvis fell off the toilet onto the floor flat on his face, breaking his nose. This is very common and is very hard for the mortician to fix just right. Third, the "sweating corpse". Let's see, Memphis in the middle of August. Yeah, it was probably hot enough to melt the makeup a little. Fourth, the casket itself. Why do people refuse to believe that they were able to find a high-end casket on short notice, yet have no trouble believing that they found one with a freaking air conditioner installed in it? A few calls to large funeral homes in the area would have probably secured it. A city the size of Memphis probably has a few distributors in town. Heck, there are several manufacturers in southern Indiana, it could even have been brought down from there on time.
My guess is that Vernon probably saw that his son was killing himself with the drugs and felt helpless to stop him, so he probably prepared for the inevitable.
He's dead as of August 16, 1977.

Amon, I remember watching a sghow one time about this, and there wasa picture of Elvis in his coffin,but that isn't what was astounding. In the background, you could see a man sitting behind a screen door, and guess who he looked like... Yeah, Elvis...
