On July 12, 2020, Elvis Presley’s only grandson, Benjamin Keough, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the mouth. The 27-year-old was the child of King Lisa Marie Presley’s only daughter. And now the young man has just been buried by his grandfather in Graceland.

The Memphis Mansion wrote on its official Facebook page: “Benjamin Storm Presley Keough was laid to rest in the Graceland Meditation Garden with his family, including his grandfather, Elvis Presley, his great-grandmother, Gladys Presley, her great-grandfather, Vernon Presley and her great-great-grandmother, Minnie Mae Presley.The Garden of Mediation is right next to the main house and is the final stop on the Graceland tour for fans.

Elvis is buried between his grandmother Minnie and his father Vernon and Benjamin’s body probably won’t be much further away in the private cemetery.

Benjamin’s father is singer-songwriter Danny Keough, who was Lisa Marie’s first husband from 1988 to 1994.

Speaking to USA Today, Lisa Marie said, “Sometimes there are rumors about [Graceland] to be sold. And that will NEVER happen.

“There is always a rumor. It is NOT sold.

“Graceland was given to me and will always be mine.

“And then passed to my children. It will never be sold. “

Other than Graceland, Lisa Marie owns the contents of the Memphis Mansion, Elvis Awards, her clothing, and all items on display to the public.

Although open to visitors, Elvis’ daughter still considers Graceland her home and sometimes stays there.

The Graceland Floor is off-limits to the public as it was the King’s private area and where he died. Nonetheless, Lisa Marie demands that these rooms be maintained as Elvis left them in 1977.
