GRAVE ROBBERS ARRESTED ON THIS DAY IN 1977

EGR

In 1977, four people were arrested at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis 
after trying to steal Elvis’ body. As a result the remains of both Elvis
Presley and his mother were reburied in Graceland’s Meditation
Garden (below) on October 2.

A long, ground-level gravestone reads "Elvis Aaron Presley", followed by the singer's dates, the names of his parents and daughter, and several paragraphs of smaller text. It is surrounded by flowers, a small American flag, and other offerings. Similar grave markers are visible on either side. In the background is a small round pool, with a low decorative metal fence and several fountains.

Presley’s gravestone at
Graceland.
