Who is buried at Graceland? Is a most asked question? Many believe that there are no bodies buried under all the headstones in the Meditation Garden at Graceland for security reasons. Grave robbers became a threat just months after Elvis death in 1977. Just days after the death of Elvis Presley, there were rumors that a group of men planned to steal his body, and hold it for a ransom of $10-million. Elvis Presley had been buried next to his mother in a mausoleum at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee. Police confronted three men they found hanging around the Presley Mausoleum after dark. Since they had no tools with them, officials let them go. In fear and any further attempt Elvis’ father Vernon got a special permit for the Whitehaven County Court to have the Elvis’s grave, along with his mothers, moved to the Meditation Garden at Graceland. The graves are now monitored by security 24-hours a day. Even with 21st century technology the threat still looms strong.
Daughter Lisa Marie Presley stated in 1999 that she was serious concerned and troubled by the number of tourists who visit the gravesite every day and would like all the graves moved to a private location. This may offer some explanation to why Gladys Love Presley original headstone with the “Star of David” was not interred at the Meditation Garden at Graceland. This looks like proof that Gladys Love Presley was is not buried under her new headstone as well. And possibly why the misspelling of Elvis’ middle name too, because Elvis Presley body is not buried under his headstone. It seems that Elvis Presley, Gladys Presley, Vernon Presley & the rest of the family are indeed all buried in a private location at Graceland or elsewhere.
