Perform, a date an escaped me anyways I think it was Saint Louis. I think it was saying, no I'm sorry it was Louisville. Was Louisville and it was it. Was nineteen seventy six and Elvis is in. Bed almost coma toes and, he's moaning in Dr neck is trying to revive him and, he's he's, dunking is head in ice water to. Try, and try. And revive him and this is a quote I'm paraphrasing something you Larry Geller one of. Elvis is really good friends had, headset in one in a. Video he said that you know Parker comes in. And liberty Geller gets off and he says you know they meet face. To face and Neil Larry this great. He's going to, see what what is going on here, and you can't let. This, go Wanton human. So he walks in the door closes he's. In in the, bedroom talking, to Dr and accomplish for a couple of minutes he comes, out and, he tells Larry Geller the only thing. That, matters is. It that man is onstage tonight that's the only thing that matters turns around walks out So this is what you have on your hands and did Elvis perform. At night he did he did even. His last concert has voice never failed, him you look at a guy in you know look it it's easy to look. At Elvis in the condition he was in. His last concert he here looking at a very sick man and. Elvis had a birth defect he had a, twisted colon So you know here's this guy who couldn't this is one of the, reasons he wasn't on the toilet he. Hadn't had a bowel movement in weeks which is why he was so loaded up? And they. Discovered that. At the autopsy so we're starting, to get into. The cover up which should we, go to, the covering. Upper yet or I want wanna just touch on. One more thing before that and. That is we were talking about his work with the FBI I I wanna. Talk about operation fountain pen What was that all about Well as I, said before in seventy six Elvis was the, biggest tax payer in Tennessee and he was that was. Almost filed bankruptcy that year he was really in is really. In a bad financial way so his father had seized his father had seized his finances. Trying to make him solving And He hit a. Plane Ellis wanted a bigger and better. Plane that's just kind of the way it. Is you, know I, mean this was a bigger and, better sorta. Guy you, know he didn't have one ring to have. Five it was like, so but for. Him so I wish I. Could so he had. This it was called hound dog. Too he named it hound dog to Jetstar and it. Was it was one of those first planes and they were selling it and nineteen seventy. Six so he's still. Own I, think channel nine hundred thousand dollars or. Something some astronomical amount of money and his father had this thing for. Sale you got contacted by a man named Frederick pro in Frederick pro, said Look I'll. Buy the, plane for what you want he said but. You're going to have, to remortgage here's. A way where you can. Make more than what. The planes worse he said remortgage. The plane plus borrow more for the for the the. Necessary renovations do it because it's a little outdated now and he said I'll take the. Plane and then I'll. Just give you checks well here's for here support. Vernon Presley who just got out shy stirred they took he went in. Hawk for double what the plane was worth the guy took the plane The checks never came He has the plane the. Presley's have no money so here. Comes the FBI investigation, so the, FBI Elvis of course he's good friends of the f. b. i. so he gets the FBI involved to get these people. Come to find out this is an international mob ring that has been doing things like this around the globe for. Better than five years they've. Been watching this, guy so, this is you know here, we are with Elvis would there with the. FBI here's in Vegas They're trying. To find out if this person this. Frederick pro is tied into. The people in Vegas which was. Which was the other, side of, the investigation so all of this is going on in the weeks preceding Elvis Presley's odd very odd demise so so Vernon. And Elvis are asked by the FBI to take part in the sting operation to nab these guys correct absolutely so. Like I said Elvis Presley. Died mysteriously days, before he, was going to turn states, evidence in this airplanes thing so he had It's just incredible. You know by By seventy, seven He had managed to fish, off the, mob his manager. The federal government he was writing people out. Of his will he was firing people or, letting them go he he was breaking up. With his, girlfriend I, mean you know you get to the point where there are more people that wanted this guy. Dead than life he managed to piss. Off almost everybody, it, was. Incredible really right you have all of this beehive of angst around this guy who mysteriously ends up that the the people in Graceland the extended family that we're basically just sort of backbiters backstabbers and leeches living off of his avails Vernon was trying to cut them out because again he was trying. To get Elvis's finances in order and. So there were, some, people. That were let go inside the Memphis mafia that now all of a sudden you know they have kind of a they've got a motive here a lot of motives Elvis Presley's father was divorcing his wife the Stanley And his his boys were of. Course raised with with l this and now we have to change the will because Elvis has to.
