• Elvis Presley died at just 42 years old
  • Many conspiracy theories surround his death
  • We tell you the wildest ones

Hardly any other death is as surrounded by rumors and theories as that of the King of Rock 'n' Roll: Elvis Presley. In honor of his 45th anniversary of death, we have collected the most spectacular myths for you.

On August 16, 1977, he was found dead in the bathroom of his Graceland estate, however, not everyone wants to believe that the superstar really died that day. What do you believe? 

Instead of the musician, it is said that his coffin carried a wax figurine of Elvis. To keep it from melting, an air conditioner was installed inside. At least that's what one popular conspiracy theory claims, but that's far from the wackiest theory.

Elvis Presley is said to be on the moon

Elvis is said to be still safe and sound but living on the moon. According to this theory, his death was also faked. Others say he is not on the moon, instead, he was abducted by aliens. And even that maybe he himself was an alien and faked his death to return home.

Also Interesting:

Certainly, there are also earthly theories for the apparent death of the King of Rock'n'Roll. One rumor says he ended up in a witness protection program after testifying against the Mafia.

Others claim that Elvis appeared as an extra in Home Alone. Where during the airport scene, someone looked suspiciously like the musician.

The movie director Chris Columbus made a film about Elvis being kidnapped... This surely can't be a coincidence!

But Elvis is not alone, the musician is said to be in the company of other (un)dead music legends like Tupac or Kurt Cobain...
