Ever since Elvis Presley’s tragic death at the age of just 42, so-called truthseekers have come up with outlandish claims that The King is actually still alive today.
They believe the Hound Dog singer faked his death in 1977 to escape the limelight and use the “evidence” of a mistake on his gravestone, sweating on his corpse and even supposed sightings of the King.
A video has now emerged revealing what may have started the wild conspiracies.
In the clip posted by YouTube channel Conspiracy Madness, a man says: “Shortly after his death, there was a one-way ticket bought to Buenos Aires, Argentina and the person that purchased this was Jon Burrows.
“According to Elvis’ acquaintances and all the people that worked with Elvis in Graceland, they were adamant that Jon Burrows was an alias Elvis used when he was on the road and wanted to stay in hotels so people couldn’t find him.
“The theory is that Elvis is still alive after his death.
“That is the very first Elvis is alive theory that sparked the ‘Elvis faked his death’ conspiracy theory.”
The clip originally surfaced on YouTube on April 16, but has since been reposted to an Elvis Alive Facebook group.
It led to a flood of comments from fans of the theory, saying it was “proof” that the King is still alive.
But the validity between the Jon Burrows theory has unsurprisingly been questioned in recent years.
Patrick Lacy, author of book Elvis Decoded, claimed that international flights weren’t available from Memphis in 1977, where “Elvis” allegedly bought the plane ticket.
It also makes little sense why the most famous person on the planet at that time would risk going into a public place in his hometown if he is meant to be faking his death.
There has never been actual evidence of the sighting of Jon Burrows, or that he actually bought a plane ticket either.
