Soon, the highest bidder will be able to buy a burial fit for The King.
The crypt that once held the body of Elvis Presley is going up for auction next month, The Associated Press reports. The tomb, located in a mausoleum at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tenn., held Presley and his mother Gladys for two months after he died on Aug. 16, 1977. Both of their bodies were later reburied at Presley's Graceland home.
As part of the "Music Icons" auction taking place on June 23, celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien is offering the crypt, the opening and closing of the vault for burial, a memorialization inscription and use of the chapel for a committal service.
