SAN DIEGO, California – A homeless man said to be around 80 years old was found deceased under a tree in San Diego, California. Nobody exactly knew the man’s identity, but friends and people that frequent the area referred to him as Jessie. Investigators preformed a DNA test in the nationwide DNA database, and the results have shocked the nation. ‘Jessie Doe’s’ DNA results matched that of Elvis Aaron Presley, who was thought to have died in 1977.
Lab technician Robert Brensdale said he and his lab assistant, Madeline Hedgespeth, laughed when the name popped up. “We thought somebody, somewhere, somehow in the system pulled the greatest and most elaborate prank on us ever, we both laughed with hysteria for about an hour,” Bresndale told Jerry Hardin of the Hollywood Word, a new entertainment publication based out of Los Angeles.
Brensdale and Hedgespeth then went to their superior with laughter, as if he were the one behind this “prank”. They were told to simmer down and stay quiet, that this was no laughing matter. From there, the results went up the ladder to the FBI and CIA.
Now, weeks later, FBI spokesperson Philip Hunter has revealed that the deceased man’s body was actually the body of Elvis Presley, who had been in the witness protection program since 1977.
The FBI has released this statement:
“Mr. Presley was placed in the program under a voluntary basis, but he was not a witness to any crime. Upon meeting President Nixon, the two became great friends, and Mr. Presley wanted out of his life, he wanted to be an unknown, so President Nixon made this possible. Yes, it is official – Elvis Presley was really alive all that time, and only a handful of people knew it, most of which are no longer with us.”
His body will officially be laid to rest at his original burial site in the Meditation Garden at Graceland mansion at 3764 Elvis Presley Boulevard in Memphis, Tennessee. The date has not yet been announced.
