Elvis Presley tragically died on August 16, 1977 at his home in Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee. The King of Rock n Roll was 42 years old when he died, and was in his house with his fiancée, Ginger Alden, and his young daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. Although his funeral brought thousands of friends and fans to honour the Blue Suede Shoes singer, rumours instantly began that he was not really dead.
The day he died there were reports that he was seen getting on a plane to Buenos Aires.
Since then, there have been a number of supposed sightings of Elvis, and “phone calls” from Elvis, long after his death.
1991’s TV documentary special The Elvis Files took a lot of these rumours and investigated them thoroughly.
Hosted by Gene Smith, the show saw experts and friends of the King arrive to discuss the possibility that he was not really dead.

During this special the panel discussed whether Elvis planned to disappear by being placed in a witness protection program by the FBI.
The story goes that Elvis was involved in a sting operation that exposed some members of a criminal organisation called The Fraternity to the FBI.
Talking about this theory in depth, The Elvis Files author Gail Brewer-Giorgio explained how Elvis was “without a doubt” a federal agent.
