You know, like Elvis is still alive, Elvis was kidnapped by extraterrestrials...How and when did it start?
Rumours like this are usually started by two types of people:
Complete *****s who are delusional, or people who want to prey on those deluded *****s to make a buck.
Unfortunately, the delusional *****s are the most rabid of Elvis fans.
When a big star or personality dies, you get the "alive" rumours. People can't comprehend that someone so big as Elvis could actually die, so the rumour mill goes into overdrive. Some *****s just can't accept reality.
These alive rumours are soon followed by the "death conspiracy" theorists, ie "Elvis was killed because he knew too much", "the royal family killed Diana" etc.
It's all ridiculous, and I try to ignore it. Elvis is dead: no conspiracies, no FBI witness protection, no Elvis in Kalamazoo etc, and no cover-ups.

Ok Getlo, I guess we all know and accept the fact that Elvis is dead... But who exactly are these "complete *****s" you're refering to? Some fans? And the people who just want some money, same question, anybody has their names?

people who don't want to accept the fact that such a legend is really gone. People who believe that if there was any justice in the world, Elvis wouldn't have been taken from us at such a young age ... everyone must wish and dream that Elvis was still alive at some point, right? some people will truly believe that such a person like Elvis could never be taken away from us, there just HAS to be a more plausible explanation to them. (and no i'm not putting Elvis on a pedestal, but the people who are on such websites might be. i do not mean for this to sound like a controversial reply- honest! )
I've got those hup, two, three, four, occupation G.I. Blues, From my G.I. hair to the heels of my G.I. shoes
Actually, it was the Elvis fans and the fan clubs way back in 1977 .
Giorgio and others didn't look into any of that until 1986-1987.
I understand it started because Vernon called some and told them to not come to the funeral. As they looked at other things; it started the questioning. All the "clues" are on some of those sites. I believe I and others pretty much ran all those so called "clues" down years ago.
Except for that darn pool house picture .
Back to the original question, it started when Vernon told people not to come to his funeral and then the whole casket thing and the body not looking like Elvis....and it just took off from there....oh and someone said they sold "Elvis" a plane ticket under the name Jon Burrows who left the country right after ELvis died......and nobody collected his 3 million insurance policy....so stuff like that kept coming up and let's not forget the spelling of his middle name on the coffin....and the fact he's not buried next to his mother - which we all know he would have wanted.....okay I'll stop now....but you can see how it all snow balls out of control.
You're welcome. I thought it was interesting sorting through all that.
I learned a lot from the ones that were there .
I think people just like to make up stories or they may be jealous of elvis. I find that the gossip seems to happen to everyone not just elvis, it seems that me that somebody aren't happy till they pulling the wool over someones eyes or simply making up stories.
The "fake elvis", obviously not.
the fans that just " hope and pray" he didn't die...?? They're probably bigger ,truer fans than any of us.
We all wish elvis was here, but sad as it is he's gone and we have to accept that and enjoy the things elvis had left us.
I agree and some nuts just prey on the ones that want him to be alive.
Truthfully, I wish the "fakes" could be locked up. But, it seems it's no crime .
Unless, as some they solicit money or other other valuable things.
