ELVISyoung Elvis

Conspiracy theorists have long insisted that Elvis Presley is still alive and faked his own death in 1977 to escape the pressures of fame.

And now they claim that a new picture taken at the singer’s Graceland home shows he is still living and even visited his old house 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 Graceland.
