The theories surrounding the death of Elvis Presley have been ramped up by conspiracists who believe there are inconsistencies in his doctor's 'truth'.

The King died of a heart attack in August 16, 1977 at his home at Graceland but not everyone believes that Elvis actually passed away.

Now a conspiracy theory has emerged that has pointed at conflicting accounts of the the legendary singer's death, given by his doctor George C. Nichopoulos.

The unproven theories point the finger at Dr Nick after he became part of the Elvis' 'inner circle' soon after meeting in 1967.

It has been reported that Elvis would call the doctor in the early hours, asking for a prescription.

The Daily Star has unearthed an interview with the doctor which is now being called out for muddying the waters over the death of Elvis.

The interview from 2009 has the doctor recalling the moments that saw Elvis pass away.

Dr Nick said: "The day he died, I was at the hospital and I was called to come in on an emergency.

“I had the light in my car and I thought what the heck I'll just use it.

“I didn’t get stopped but it didn’t help him either.”

Inconsistencies in this story have been pointed out by conspiracy theorists in a post on Facebook .

They have challenged Dr Nick's timeline, which has seen him allegedly place himself in different places at the same time, in different reports.

The theorist wrote: “ We all know that Dr Nick was at Graceland and rode with Elvis to the hospital.

“He now says was at the hospital on the day that Elvis died and had to come in?

“Again, we see that nothing adds up. Sounds like a cover-up, Elvis is alive.”

The theory is obviously yet to be proven but it confirms that belief about Elvis dying is still one for debate among his legion of fans.
