A great deal of "Elvis is Alive" intrigue centers on August 18th, 1977, the day of Elvis's funeral. Footage of the service shows pallbearers struggling to lift a 900-pound copper casket. Elvis had packed on a few pounds in his later years, but there's no way he was pushing a half-ton. One explanation: the casket was outfitted with a cooling system- the kind you'd use to keep a wax dummy of a beloved celebrity from melting on a hot summers day.

Sound crazy?

A wax body that was a replica of Elvis designed to fool funeral-goers. How did the presley get a 900 pound, custom made casket ready for the showing of his body that was held on the day after his death? It takes a lot of time to build such an elaborate casket.

Elvis's cousin Gene smith thought the body looked a little strange.
"His nose looked kinda puggy-looking, and his right sideburns was sticking straight out- it looked about an inch,"
Smith said in the 1991 special the Elvis files. "And his hairline looked like a hairpiece or something was glued on." Smith was also troubled by the smoothness of Elvis's typically calloused hands and the sweat on his brow.

A hairdresser who also claims she glued a loose sideburn on the corpse because it kept falling down.

The body in the casket was believed to be a wax dummy. Some even believe the body of Elvis was sweating, making him believed to still be alive, yet faking his death at his very own funeral.
