Authenticity of Elvis’ autopsy tools questioned
MEMPHIS, TENN. (AP) - The authenticity of tools supposedly used in Elvis Presley's autopsy and embalming is being questioned, and the items have been withdrawn from a Chicago auction.
Memphis Funeral Home president E.C. Daves told The Commercial Appeal newspaper in Tennessee that there's no way to tell whether the items being offered for sale through Leslie Hindman Auctioneers are authentic.
Daves says a retired embalmer claims he took the items after Presley's embalming Aug. 16, 1977. But Daves says another employee told him the equipment was sterilized and used again.
The items included rubber gloves, forceps, a comb, a toe tag and eye liner. They were to be auction in two sets valued at $8,000 and $6,000.
