The Tupelo-Memphis Murders: A Psychological Study of Self-Destruction and Murder!

The Tupelo-Memphis Murders: A Psychological Study of Self-destruction and Murder! is one of the most sensational Elvis books ever released.

Book synopsis: The Tupelo-Memphis Murders: A Psychological Profile of Self-Destruction and Murder! (ISBN 0-9756868-0-1) is (anonymously) written as a novel which can be read on two levels.


The narrative is fueled by a mix of the conspiracy theories present in the "Elvis underground" and known facts about Elvis. No where in the book are Elvis or other characters mentioned by name but it is readily apparent to readers who the characters are.

The 100+ page book is well written with controversial, conspiratorial themes (murder, incest, secret FBI operations, Men in Black) that confront and challenge our perceptions of the publicly stated Elvis story.

Publication of the book has already met with criticism and is sure to divide fans. Fact or fiction?: you be the judge!

Excerpts from The Tupelo-Memphis Murders: A Psychological Study of Self-Destruction and Murder!:

From Prolog:

Life is like a bowl of cherries - light red ones, blood red ones and rotten decaying ones! They symbolize what can happen in our worlds, from joy to sorrow, from unbridled passion to abject despair. In between, most people go about their mundane daily lives, making ends meet, and valiantly, but usually in vain, hoping for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Like leeches sucking out the last drop of blood from a victim, the inequitable distribution of power and money in society rewards an effusive few at the expense of many.

From Part 2 - A Fairytale Begins? (1946):

The woman viciously slammed the door and the boy could hear what he dreaded, the slow turning of the metal key in the lock that would imprison him in the dark, cavernous hole. The last glimmer of light he saw, for now, was a brief reflection off the pintle of the door. Once again resigned to his fate, he could only sit and wait, shivering in the gloom and stench of the unhospitable room. Around him he could hear the scurrying of creatures, invisible in the dark. Within time the wretched rodents, sensing and smelling his presence, would brush over his legs and lick at his decaying wounds, intensifying the already unbearable pain that racked his young body.

From Part 6 - Paranoia in Vegas (1971):

“I’ll kill him! I’ll kill the fuckin’ bastard!” The man’s anger was at boiling point, seething forth in a wild, uncontrollable rage. Those around him were totally unnerved. They had seen his temper tantrums before, but never had they seen him frothing at the mouth as he waved a loaded .38 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver blindly in the air. It cut a swathe this way and that, putting the fear of God into those in the room.

From Part 9 - Assassination in Tennessee (August 1977): The man slumped forward, a deep gasp escaping from his lungs. His body hit the open suitcase and his head jerked to the right. He tumbled off the suitcase toward the floor, as it passed, his head making a sickening thud on the bedside table and knocking several books to the floor. Dark red blood spurted forth, flowing freely down the side of his temples and forming a rising reservoir on the plush red carpet that covered the floor.

In an instant the mortal life of an Adonis like superstar had been brutally extinguished. The body was prone, its life force seemingly gone forever. And in a few moments, one of the greatest cover-ups the world had ever known would begin, creating a new, but different life, a life of mythological proportions, of fact, fiction, half-truths, cruel deception and downright lies!

From Part 13 - Let the Conspiracy Begin (August 1977):

Colorful identities would “smile” and plot, the “cowboy” would ride undercover, a “gale” would blow then disappear. There would be a crossover plot, with “men in black” making frightening, nocturnal visits on the unsuspecting and the landscape would be cluttered with “victims” and un-winnable polemic. Histrionics and abstract paranoia would (reign)… rain fire and brimstone like transparent meteors under the perceptual awareness of a mainstream world.
