The Wake and Aftermath

August 18, 1977

The Police made their live debut as a three-piece band when they played at Rebecca’s Birmingham, England. The Police became globally popular in the late 1970s and are generally regarded as one of the first New Wave groups to achieve mainstream success, playing a style of rock that was influenced by punk, reggae, and jazz.

Two Missouri girls were killed and a third was critically injured when a car being driven by drunk 18-year-old Memphis teen,  Treatise Wheeler, with three teen girls in the car, swerved into a crowd of over 2,000 mourners standing in front of Graceland’s music gate at about 4am.

Dragged and killed were Alice Marie Hovatar, Juanita Joanne Johnson while Tammy Baiter was seriously injured.

The driver was charged with drunk driving, leaving the scene of an accident and two counts of second degree murder.

More than 75-thousand mourners surrounded the estate for the funeral service of Elvis Presley at his Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee. Florists in the surrounding States were press for flower orders.

All city buildings in Memphis immediately lowered their flags to half-staff. 300 National Guard troops to the area to maintain order

An estimated 30,000 fans were able to pass by Elvis coffin during a Memphis Heat Wave.

The Funeral service was held in Graceland’s living room, and lasted from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Wooddale Church of Christ pastor C.W. Bradley led the sermon, which also featured a testimonial from comedian Jackie Kahane, who often opened Elvis’ shows. Other Elvis tour vets -—J.D. Sumner and the Stamps, the Statesmen, and Kathy Westmoreland — performed some of Elvis’ favorite hymns including “Heavenly Father.”

John Wayne, Caroline Kennedy, Burt Reynolds, James Brown, and George Hamilton.

Kennedy showed up, not on behalf of her family, as Vernon Presley thought, but for Rolling Stone Magazine.

Col Parker had a fight with Vernon over bootleg products and signing a new contract to protect Elvis; Parker wore overly casual clothes, and had declined being a pall bearer.

Then, the motorcade.

An estimated 80,000 people came to watch the funeral procession, lining the street and bearing handmade signs expressing their sorrow for the loss of The King.

To Forest Hills: Presley was entombed in a white marble mausoleum at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis near the grave of his mother, Gladys, but would be re-buried at Graceland the following November at his father’s request, and the City of Memphis re-zoned Graceland for a family graveyard.

Elvis’ burial began with a white hearse followed by seventeen white limousines in a long procession down Elvis Presley Boulevard, ending at Forest Hill Cemetery.

The 900-pound copper coffin was carried by pallbearers Jerry Schilling, Joe Esposito, George Klein, Lamar Fike, Billy Smith, Charlie Hodges, Gene Smith, and Dr. George Nichopoulous.

In the mausoleum, a small service was held, then the paying of respects from family and friends. Elvis’ father Vernon was the last to leave, kissing the coffin and repeating “Daddy will be with you soon.” Elvis was interred at 4:30 p.m. CST.

12:00 midnight: After his 10:30 pm dentist’s appointment is completed, Elvis and girlfriend Ginger Alden return to Graceland.

Elvis as he enters Graceland in his Stutz Blackhawk around 12:30 a.m. on August 16, 1977

2:15 am: Elvis calls his doctor to request more painkillers, ostensibly because of pain engendered by the dentist trip. Elvis’ stepbrother Ricky Stanley drives to the all-night pharmacy at Baptist Memorial Hospital and returns with six Dilaudid pills.

4:00 am: Elvis wakes up first cousin Billy Smith and his wife, Jo, to request they play a game of racquetball with him. Presley, as usual, plays the game while barely moving, and playfully attempts to hit Billy with the ball. In doing so, Elvis manages to hit himself with his racquet, bruising his leg. The game is called off.

4:30 am: Elvis moves to a nearby piano and performs two unidentified gospel numbers and “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.”

5:00 am: Elvis decides to turn in early (for him), going up to his bedroom with Ginger. He takes one of the pre-packaged packets of pills created by his doctor for twice-daily use.

7:00 am: Elvis takes a second pack of pills.

8:00 am: Still unable to sleep, Elvis asks for a third packet, which is brought to him by his aunt, Delta Mae Biggs.

9:30 am: Elvis takes the book he’s been reading, Frank Adams’ The Scientific Search For The Face Of Jesus, and goes into his bathroom, “Don’t fall asleep in there,” she says, knowing his propensity to nod off.

“Okay, I won’t,” he says.

Ginger, who Elvis gave a Tylenol 3 tablet, drops back to sleep.

-at some point, Elvis had ice cream and cookies and more Pills, with his Aunt Delta likely being the last person to see him alive.

1:30 pm: Ginger awakens and sees Elvis is still gone. When knocking on the bathroom door produces no reply, she enters and finds his lifeless body on the floor in front of the toilet.

She calls downstairs for help and Nancy Rook, Graceland Maid answers and dispatches Elvis associates Al Strada and Joe Esposito, who arrive in the bathroom and they call the fire department. An ambulance is dispatched. Daughter Lisa Marie and father Vernon arrive in the bathroom, but Lisa Marie is quickly removed from the scene.

 

2:56 pm: Elvis Presley arrives at the Baptist Medical Center in Memphis.

3:00 pm: Elvis is pronounced dead.

4:00 pm: On the steps of Graceland, heartbroken father Vernon Presley tells the assembled reporters: “My son is dead.”

Vernon Presley Talks to the Media – August 16, 1977

His autopsy was performed at 7:00 p.m.  The death was announced as the autopsy was being carried out: The official coroner’s report listed “cardiac arrhythmia” as the cause of Presley’s death, (which only means the heart stopped and not why) but the real cause of death: a cocktail of ten prescribed drugs, taken together in doses no doctor should ever prescribe to a person with terminal illness, which Elvis did not have. The pills he took were for symptom management: pain and sleep mostly, nothing for an actual medical condition.

Romances: Ginger Alden

Also on Memphis Mafia duty during the final hours were Stepbrothers David E. Stanley and Rick Stanley. One delivered pill packs and the other was smoking pot with a pal in the pool table room, off the TV room.

 

The staff of television newsrooms considered Elvis’ death a late-breaking story. There was not enough time for TV reporters who had been sent to Memphis to file stories for the evening news. Executives had to decide quickly what film footage they could use from their files and where to place the story in relation to the other news of the day. NBC-TV not only rewrote their news lineup to lead off with the story of Elvis’ death, but the network also made immediate plans to delay The Tonight Show and put together a late-night news documentary. David Brinkley, a national news anchor for NBC at the time, opened his broadcast with three minutes devoted to Elvis’ sudden death. ABC-TV also decided to lead with the Presley story.

When they learned that NBC would be doing a late-night news special about the significance of Elvis Presley to American music, ABC announced that they would also air a half-hour documentary.

CBS did not follow suit, however. The CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite, featuring the most respected man in broadcasting at that time, had led the news program ratings for more than a decade. CBS executives chose not to open the evening broadcast with the Presley story. Arbitron’s records indicate that when millions of viewers realized this they immediately switched the channel to another network.

The CBS decision not to lead with Elvis’ death gave the CBS Evening News its lowest ratings in years. (For the record, Roger Mudd was substituting for Walter Cronkite that evening.) CBS devoted only 70 seconds to its story on Elvis, placing it after a lengthy segment on the Panama Canal. The producer for that evening’s news was vehemently opposed to leading off with Elvis’ death, in spite of other members of the CBS programming staff suggesting it repeatedly. Interviewed later, the producer agreed that he was out of sync with the national consciousness. Two days later, CBS tried to save face by putting together a documentary on Elvis.
