Elvis Presley crypt pulled from auction
Posted by Xeno on June 25, 2012
More than 10,000 fans signed a petition against the sale of the tomb at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee.
Julien’s Auctions said it would not sell the crypt until the cemetery “finds a plan that best suits the interests of the fans while respecting and preserving the memory of Elvis”.
The crypt has been empty since 1977.
Presley was temporarily interred there alongside his mother, Gladys, for two months after he died before being reburied at his Graceland home.
