ELVIS late grandson Benjamin Keough has now been buried at Graceland alongside The King, it has been revealed.

The official Facebook page for Graceland, Elvis home in Memphis, TN, says 27-year-old Benjamin, who died in July after shooting himself, has been laid to rest in its Meditation Garden.


Elvis, who died aged 42 in 1977, is also buried in the garden, as are Elvis parents and grandmother.

The online post on Gracelands official Facebook page read: Benjamin Storm Keough was laid to rest in the Meditation Garden with his family including his grandfather, Elvis Presley, great-grandmother Gladys Presley, great-grandfather, Vernon Presley and great-great-grandmother, Minnie Mae Presley.

Within an hour of the post, more than 600 fans had written tributes to Benjamin who shot himself on July 12.

Tami Rene wrote: Continued prayers for the Presley and Keough families. At least being at Graceland Lisa Marie knows he will be taken care of and kept safe.


Andre Churchill said Benjamin's parents Lisa Marie and Danny Keough are in his prayers: "Thank you for telling us, we really do appreciate it. Prayers to Lisa and her girls and Danny Keough and to all the people that loved Ben. R.I.P. Beautiful Sweet Ben. You are Loved".

Linda Kay Ewart commented: Rest in peace Benjamin your Grandfather is watching over you.

Becky Poole wrote: That is so the perfect resting place for him. Rip.



Benjamin, who looked like Elvis and had the same blue eyes as his grandfather, died at mom Lisa Maries home in Calabasas, CA.

He had been celebrating his girlfriend Diana Pintos birthday at the $1.8million property on the night of the tragedy.

He reportedly locked himself in a bathroom and spent hours alone before ending his life.

His death followed a longtime struggle with mental health issues.


The Sun revealed how his family, including his actress sister Riley Keough and her husband, later celebrated his life with an emotional service in Malibu.

Like his grandfather, Benjamins body was placed in an open casket at the remembrance.


Also attending the Malibu service was Benjamins father Danny Keough, grandmother Priscilla Presley, his uncle Navarone Garibaldi and his girlfriend Diana.

Lisa Maries twin daughters Finley and Harper, 11, were also there but their father, Michael Lockwood, who is now fighting a bitter custody battle over the girls with Lisa Marie, was not.




Lisa Marie has been too distressed to return to the house and has now found a new place to live nearby.
