Elvis Presley killed himself’ Ex-wife Priscilla in shock claim

New play still acquiring funding to show Elvis‘ ‘Final Hours’

 

Speaking of his deployment in Germany,  Priscilla says in the documentary: ‘They gave them (drugs) to the soldiers over there to keep them awake. He had manoeuvres that he had to do late at night, so the pills were given to the guys and that’s how he started.

‘And if you take a sleeping pill, you have to do something to get yourself awake. He was in uncharted territory, he truly was, and he did this and tried to do this alone.’

Elvis in the US Army

In December, letters from Elvis to his friend and road manager Joe Esposito were discovered.

The two notes hint that the singer was depressed, with the icon saying ‘I’m sick and tired of my life’ and ‘I need a long rest’.

Elvis also admitted he was ’embarrassed [he] can’t kick drugs’ and that he ‘could not recover’ from ‘losing Priscilla’, which was ‘the greatest mistake of my life’.

One of the notes was dated January 1977, seven months before he died.

Rick Stanley, Elvis’ step-brother told Radar Online: ‘The handwritten note appears to be genuine. To me, it’s a clear indication that suicide was on his mind.

It is really not a surprise. Elvis Presley was disappointed with his career, exposed by former employee friends and had nothing to look forward to, and had given up trying for several years. 

Elvis Presley experienced major depression and complicated grief, in a manic life of lurching from one excess of money and sex to the other end of religious purification. Wondering why me, while having wanting to be a singer and wishing there was more substantial he could do than movies and music, and entirely limited to the image he’d created while trying to become famous, and once famous as a unique talent, became contracted into artistic workhorse servitude, raising mediocre material to competence rather than quality material to the artistic limits of his capacity.

Elvis at Home : Hospital on Call ‘Elvis Presley was released from Baptist Hospital at 4am yesterday [April 5] … He decided to keep the [Hospital] rooms reserved … He is feeling fine and looking forward to returning to his personal appearance tours that begin April 21 at Greensboro, NC’. – The Commercial Appeal

 

The book Elvis what happened was published before Elvis died.

After he died, the copies flew off the shelves and a second printing included an additional chapter about the death that the publication of the first edition, contributed to.

Elvis Presley went to the dentist before a tour and whatever the dentist used for the minor dental matter.

Elvis also got drugs by simply removing them from unlocked cupboards that the medical practioners left unlocked

it remains part of the greater doctor shopping and over prescribing addition issue that remains unaddressed today.

Elvis Presley died in 1977, when drug addition was a greater stigma than it is in 2018

but it’s take until 2018 for the EPE Estate to actually address the matter

and perhaps now, they will release the CBC final show and allow Elvis to exist from 1973 to 1977.

Elvis Presley, didn’t die of drugs on the road as so many other music stars did.

Elvis Presley, died at home from drugs, on the bathroom floor, like many people who die at home.

Elvis Presley and Medical Drugs

Elvis Presley was betrayed by many people around him and was known to experience nightmares about going broke and all his friends leaving him.

Presley supported most of his relatives with jobs and was very aware of the value he brought to the American economy. Presley never took a tax deduction either, and helped America pave their highways.

Suicide certainly explains the not claimed life insurance policy to avoid autopsy disclosure more than faked his death does too.

‘NO TRUTH’: Elvis Presley’s ex-fiancee blasts Priscilla over suicide …

Ginger Alden was 19 years old, her book described a very clinically depressed Elvis

Her attempts to soften and rationalize what she saw but did not understand, given her account.

This is why so many families are grief stricken when relatives die from addiction neglect over time or intentional suicide often with more violent means for men – guns, vehicles, suicide by cop, whereas women tend more towards the overdoses, hanging and heads in ovens. It depends on if the person is angry at the world (explode) or them self (implode)

they see but they do not understand, mostly because of not listening or paying the right type of attention.
