This Day, in 1977, The body of Elvis Presley and his mother Gladys were moved from the cemetery where they were buried to Graceland's after an unsuccessful attempt was made to body snatch the coffin.
Graceland mansion is located at 3764 Elvis Presley Boulevard, in Memphis Tennessee.
Elvis entertained friends on the evening August 15, 1977. He played the piano and sang through the next morning when he played racquetball. He finally went to bed around 8am. His fiancée, Ginger Alden, was staying with him, but sleeping in a different room. She was the last person to see him alive.
Most stories conclude that Elvis was sitting on the toilet, nude, and reading. He collapsed. By the time Ginger woke up, Elvis had probably been dead for two or three hours. She found him at 2:00pm. The medical examiner's report says that he was found in the dressing room.
Some newspapers said that he was wearing light blue pajamas around his ankles. From the outside of the house, these rooms are on the second floor corner.
There was also a report that the bathroom had been cleaned up, and someone cleaned the adjacent sitting room, and that vomit had been cleaned from the shag carpet in the bathroom. I prefer to believe this.
