On this day: The death of the King of Rock ‘n Roll

It was not the first time for Ginger to find Elvis lying in an embryonic pose on the floor of the bathroom. The singer’s 20-year-old fiancée had already become accustomed to seeing Elvis falling asleep in the most unexpected situations, due to the effect of uncountable sleeping pills taken by the star. This time, however, circumstances grew serious. Having turned the almost rigid body over, Ginger saw Elvis with his head covered in blood. The rock star was hastily taken to the hospital, but it was too late.

The first rock ‘n’ roll star of the world, Elvis Presley was officially pronounced dead at 4 pm on August 16, 1977. Although the exact cause of death is still unknown due to the autopsy report having been classified for 50 years, it is certain that more than ten types of drugs were traced in the King’s body.
