Elvis Presley: Benjamin Keough’s grave photos show beautiful resting place by The King
This week, Elvis Presley’s only grandson Benjamin Keough was laid to rest by The King. The two are buried in Graceland’s Meditation Garden alongside other Presley family members. The 27-year-old tragically died by suicide on July 12, after a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the mouth.
Graceland wrote on its official Facebook page: “Benjamin Storm Presley Keough was laid to rest in the Meditation Garden at Graceland with his family including his grandfather, Elvis Presley, great-grandmother, Gladys Presley, great-grandfather, Vernon Presley and great-great-grandmother, Minnie Mae Presley.”
Now the first photos of Benjamin Koeugh’s grave have been shared by a fan account of his sister Riley Keough.
The Twitter account is followed by Priscilla Presley, Elvis’ ex-wife and Benjamin’s grandmother and the tweet was also shared by The Daily Memphian in an article on the young man’s burial.
One of the photographs, allegedly taken on October 1, shows Benjamin’s final rest place in the Meditation Garden is by Graceland’s pool.
Benjamin is buried on the other side of the fountain, directly opposite Elvis’ grave.
The King is buried in-between his grandmother Minnie and father Vernon.
Unlike the other Presley family members, Benjamin’s grave is a chest tomb.
An inscription on the end surrounded by flowers has his full name: “Benjamin Storm Presley Keough.
In the comments on the photos, fans paid their respects to Elvis’ grandson.
One wrote: “So so beautiful Lisa your sons final resting place among his loved ones.
“I’m sure your daddy was there to receive his grandson and lead him to the promise land.
