Story Behind the National Enquirer Front Cover 1977
the two of the three ex-Memphis Mafia gang,
Dave Hebler & Red West
(was shooting a movie on location) held a press
conference and went on record to say they initially
wrote the book in revenge for being sacked after 20
years of loyal service, by a simple phone call from
Vernon. This avenging tactic was enough evidence to
Vernon Presley insisting on an
Elvis Presley's autopsy commissioned immediately after his
death involved draining all body fluids, removal of all vital
organs, and sent to a pathology lab for testing to ascertain
the cause of death. The coroner, Dr Jerry Francisco, who with
Dr Eric Muirhead and Dr Noel Florredo attended the autopsy on
Presley... they initially concealed the facts by attributing
the cause of death to a massive heart attack. Their motive,
they have since admitted, "was not to tarnish the image by a
scandal of a drug habit." In recourse to the now abundant
rumours, Francisco states, "If Elvis is NOT dead, he's walking
around without his major organs as Elvis' brain and heart are
still in storage at Memphis Memorial Hospital
Back to Giorgio's 'weight mystery' - one does need to be a
math genius to figure-out, if you remove most of a persons
guts they will end-up a lot thinner! Yet, contrary to all the
facts, Giorgio relentlessly tries to provide even more clues
to Elvis' mysterious death - by questioning the secret
cover-up of the autopsy report. The fact is,
upon receiving evidence that a mixture of addictive-drugs was indeed the
cause of his beloved son's death, panic and quickly paid off
officials to keep the document a secret.
Dee Presley, who
became Elvis' stepmother by marrying Vernon in 1960 states
that she sighted the autopsy papers and agreed with her
husband to support the 'over dose' cover-up. Giorgio's
most outrageous revelation is not the written word - but voice
of Elvis (on tape) reiterating and confirming all her claims!
To this day, Giorgio adamantly states the interview took place
well after Elvis' death but has refused any further details!
In part, the interview has Elvis explaining, his life of
anonymity not being easy, because he has had to grow a beard
to disguise himself.
Elvis' personal physician Dr Nick reveals
cause of death
in his book The King and Dr. Nick
The question that immediately springs to mind - is why Elvis
would seek-out Gail Brewer Giorgio (who he never met alive or
dead) over-n-above his family and friends to disclose his
hoaxed disappearance? Anyway, in 1985 David Darlock, an Elvis
impersonator threw a spanner into the works on television. On
the GERALDO talkback show, Darlock admitted he was paid $250
in April 1981 by the Elvis fan club, "Eternally Elvis" to
simulate the voice of Elvis for an album. He also, produced
the signed contract of this deal!
It's easy to discredit all of Giorgio's
outrageous claims, and more-so, her book only proves she
is indeed a scheming business woman reaping millions, by
shrouding facts with fiction! Giorgio's last quest to
verify all her discrepancies is her bid as to, "why
haven't the executors of Elvis Presley Estate made a
public statement to discredit any of these 'still alive'
rumours?' Common sense prevailing, this issue rests
squarely on the business of making money! And Jack Soden,
chief-executor (directly under Priscilla Presley) in
charge of promotions and marketing of the Elvis image,
dutifully confirmed this in August 1989, in a statement to
the press. He said, "as for Giorgio's book, why kill-off
the golden goose, she pays the Presley Estate, thousands a
year in royalties..."
On the question, is Elvis
alive? Facts reveal - sadly, yes.
But, not forgotten!
And it will go down in history that Elvis Presley changed the
course of music and culture.... If only in our memories &
