Similarities Between Lisa Marie and Elvis's Deaths

The recently released autopsy report reveals unexpected connections between Lisa Marie Presley’s January death and that of her famous father, Elvis Presley, in 1977.

According to the story, Lisa Marie, who died on January 12 at 54, had various health difficulties leading up to her death, similar to Elvis, including recurring fevers, nausea, abdominal discomfort, and vomiting.

She had bariatric surgery several years ago but died from a “sequelae of a small bowel obstruction,” a known long-term side effect of the weight-loss process.

Lisa Marie had complained of stomach pains the morning of her death and was discovered unconscious at her Calabasas home by her ex-husband, presumably Danny Keough. She was then whisked away to the hospital.

Elvis’ death certificate stated a heart attack as the cause of death, but he also had the same problems; pathologists Dr. Eric Muirhead and Dr. Noel Florredo identified symptoms of severe and chronic constipation during a post-mortem examination, according to PBS.

When he died, the King of Rock was reportedly seated on the toilet and “straining very hard to have a bowel movement, a maneuver that put a great deal of pressure on his heart and aorta,” which the insider suspected may have contributed to his demise.

Presley reportedly died due to a series of physical disorders; his uncle Vester Presley said the singer “was very sick for the last two years — liver problems, bad colon, enlarged heart.”

Elvis Presley, 42, was discovered in the toilet of his Graceland residence in Memphis by someone close to him: his former girlfriend Ginger Alden.

According to The New York Times, Elvis died of hypertensive heart disease, with coronary artery heart disease having a part, according to Dr. George Nichopoulos, a friend and physician of Elvis’.

Lisa Marie’s postmortem report stated that she had heart difficulties while in the emergency room and required a temporary pacemaker implant due to life-threatening heart rhythms. She continued to worsen until she suffered a heart attack and was pronounced dead 20 minutes later.

Both the father and daughter died with various narcotics in their systems, yet neither is likely to have led to their deaths.

Lisa Marie’s toxicology findings showed that she had oxycodone in her blood (she was prescribed pain medication after undergoing cosmetic surgery months previously), as well as the antidepressant quetiapine metabolite, norbuprenorphine, and buprenorphine, which are used to treat opioid addiction. The coroner determined that the medications had no impact on her death.

According to the report, the decedent had a history of overmedicating and frequently failed to take her meds and then retook them. She has a history of substance abuse, including alcohol and illegal drugs. According to rumors, she had given up both in 2015. She smoked around one pack of cigarettes per day.

According to acquaintances, in the months following Lisa Marie’s death, her mother, Priscilla, attempted to seize control of the late star’s trust and transfer it into the custody of her daughter Riley Keough.

To conclude the disagreement over the family trust, Riley agreed to take over as the sole executor of Lisa Marie’s estate and pay Priscilla $1 million plus $400K in legal fees in June.
