10 Famous Figures Rumoured To Be Alive Following Their Death

Denial: the first stage of death towards acceptance. Denial may explain why so many people claim to have seen celebrities well and living after their deaths have been publically announced. It can be very difficult to accept the death of someone you feel strongly about. It should, therefore, not be surprising that there are so many blogs online claiming celebrities faked their death in order to live out their lives in peace. Indeed, nothing ignites conspiracy theories like the death of a famous figure. Read on to find out 10 people rumored to be alive following their death.

Michael Jackson is a star who had such die-hard fans that they refuse to believe he passed on. The King of Pop died unexpectedly on June 25th, 2009, leaving behind a billion-dollar industry and many rumours surrounding his death. An autopsy was conducted the day after Jackson passed away. However, doctors were unable to establish a cause of death. Craig Harvy, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s spokesman, thus announced that further tests had to be conducted. Toxicology tests meant that the world would be kept waiting for a few weeks to find out what actually happened. As times passed, the rumours kept rising, including rumours that he staged his own death. Even today, many of those rumours are still circulating in the form of blogs on the internet.

Elvis died suddenly at the age of 42. According to his fiancée, during the night of August 16th, 1977, he got up and said he was going to the bathroom to read. When she woke up a few hours later, she noticed the bathroom light was still on. Upon going to check on her fiancé, Ginger Alden found him deceased, slumped on the floor. In 1977, it was suspected that the cause of death was a drug overdose from prescription medication. The public will not really know what happened to the King of Rock and Roll until 2027 when his autopsy will no longer be sealed (Elvis’ father sealed the document until the 50th anniversary of his son’s death). In 2010, Elvis’ personal physician and friend came forward to state he suspected the King actually died of chronic constipation, not cardiac arrhythmia as suspected. The mystery surrounding Elvis’ death has fuelled rumours about his still being alive. There is even a Facebook page dedicated to proving he is still alive.
