Elvis Presley didn’t die from a heart attack or drug overdose, but from a brain injury he sustained 10 years earlier that eventually led to his death on August 16, 1977.
This is the claim that has recently resurfaced from prominent Californian physician Dr Forest Tennant, who viewed Elvis’ sealed autopsy report, a document that’s been kept a secret by the US government at his family’s request since his death.
The report is set to be released in 2027, though medical professionals have been permitted to review the findings over the years, including Dr Tennant, who cited the report in 1981. At the time, he was defending Elvis’ doctor, George Nichopoulos, accused of overprescribing medication to the singer at the time of his death.
