Did Elvis comitted suicide by slowly killing himself?
There were a lot of speculations why Elvis became addicted to drugs. Did he intentionally indulged in this tragic situation out of depression and lost the will to live? What could have driven such an important personality of the century to lost control and eventually end up dead? Does the people around him share the guilt for his unfortunate self destruction?
Not a suicide, but an overdose
Elvis did not commit suicide - that would imply intent. I feel that he did die from a long term overdose of drugs, for which both Elvis and the people around him were responsible. Elvis could have broken away from his drug use & his enablers if he had had his 'moment of truth' earlier on, and known what was happening, but sometime during the 70s things reached a tipping point, the downhill slide began, and the almost inevitable bitter end loomed on the horizon.
