Elvis is Alive Museum Comes Home!

Mississippian Andy Key has purchased the collection of Elvis Presley memorabilia displayed near St. Louis for the past 15 years as the Elvis is Alive Museum.

Key, 38, won an eBay auction held by museum owner Bill Beeny, 80, including documentation proving that Presley survived beyond the commonly accepted death date of August 16, 1977. Beeny assembled FBI documents pertaining to Presley's involvement with the feds, a tape recording of the King's voice made after 1977, and a copy of the DNA test proving that someone other than Elvis occupies his supposed casket.

Key has said that he'll move the collection to Presley’s birth state of Mississippi. He's considering sites in Jackson, Hattiesburg, and Laurel.
