New York Daily News: By Joseph Wilkinson – Lisa Marie Presley will buried at Graceland, her father Elvis’ mansion in Memphis, Tenn.
Presley, who died of cardiac arrest Thursday at age 54, will be buried next to her son Benjamin Keough, said a spokesperson for her daughter, actress Riley Keough.
Several members of the Presley family, including Elvis, are buried at Graceland. Benjamin Keough died by suicide in 2020 at age 27.
On Thursday and Friday, the mansion served as a mourning site for Presley fans and admirers, as they left messages, placed flowers and shared memories.
“Elvis died young, and so did she. And her son, his passing was very tragic as well,” said fan Angela Ferraro. “It’s hard and it’s devastating.”
Elvis was 42 when he died inside a bathroom in Graceland in 1977. Lisa Marie officially took ownership of the estate when she was just 12 years old.
In 1982, when she was 14, Graceland reopened as a museum. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006.
When Lisa Marie sold most of her father’s trust and assets in 2005, she specifically maintained ownership of Graceland and its 13 surrounding acres.
