IMPORTANT NEWS UPDATE

TODAY I AM PRESENTING MATERIAL WHICH WILL PROVE THAT ELVIS WAS INDEED A FEDERAL AGENT.  THE PROOF IS IN THE FORM OF WORDS SPOKEN BY ELVIS HIMSELF ON STAGE ON TWO SEPARATE OCCASIONS.

I am displaying below a close up photo of the Federal Narcotics badge which was presented to Elvis by President Nixon.  As you will see, this badge was engraved specifically for Elvis, with his name upon it.

Others have given the impression that it was only a honorary badge given by President Nixon because Elvis wanted it for his badge collection…just something which President Nixon handed over to Elvis during their visit in the Oval Office.  His name engraved on his badge indicates otherwise.

This photo is from the book “Elvis By The Presley’s” page #184.

This is a fantastic book which everyone who loves Elvis should own.  

Below is a copy of the cover along with the link to Amazon.com where you will find it at a discounted price.  Some books are less than $10.00 which is a huge bargain.

Elvis' Federal DEA Badge

Quoting Priscilla from page#185 of this book: 

Maybe Elvis the federal agent seems a long way from the Elvis who longed to be a guru like Daya Mata.  But looking back, I don’t think so.  Elvis wanted to transcend into another dimension.  When it was spirituality, he wanted to be the spiritual leader who could help the most people.  When it was law enforcement, his motivation was the same.  He couldn’t be ordinary.  He wasn’t ordinary.

…He asked the President for a short cut to becoming an agent.  Where Daya Mata couldn’t accommodate him, Nixon could and did.

So, here we see that Elvis’ desire for the badge went way beyond just being a new item for his collection.  He wanted to BE a Federal Agent.

Below you will see that he did indeed become a Federal Agent:Elvis Federal credentials

On page #217 of the above book:  you will see this clearly stated by Elvis himself.  You will also see that this is an entire page…the first page in Chapter Thirteen.  The Presley’s would not have placed this quotation so prominently in their book were it not the truth.

Also, further down I will post from another book quoting from Elvis’s own words that he was a Federal Agent.

Below you will see excerpts from another book which is titled: 

“ELVIS WORD FOR WORD…What he said exactly how he said it….

This wonderful book was written by Jerry Osborne.  I also recommend this book to every Elvis fan.  I have had it for a number of years and treasure it.  It is so refreshing to read words which Elvis himself spoke without anyone putting a “spin” on the things he said.

This book can be purchased at Amazon.com.  Here is their listing of this book as well as the link to their page:

From the above book (on page #290) you will see that Elvis stated unequivocally that he had been a member, for five years, of the International Narcotics Enforcement Officers Association.  Not only that, Elvis read (on stage) from a plaque awarded to him by that association in recognition of his outstanding loyalty and contributing support of narcotic law enforcement…

Continued onto the next page:
Elvis Word for Word about John O'Grady contd

I bought Mr. O’ Grady’s book because of Elvis’s recommendation.  I bought my copy on EBay…a used book.  I don’t know if the book can still be found in book stores…but I doubt it.

Below is the front cover of the book as well as an excerpt proving that pages #166 -  are about Elvis just as Elvis said. This is the page which Elvis referenced in his statement on stage after introducing John O’ Grady to the audience.

Footnote: It was proven that the woman was lying and that Elvis was not the father of her child.  Elvis continued to be one of Mr. O’Grady’s clients.

ELVIS WAS ACTIVE WITH FEDERAL AGENCIES

Recently I read a response to a question asking if Elvis did actively work with the government…DEA, etc.  This question was answered in a rude and arrogant way.  I will have to refer to that article to be sure of the exact wording of the question and the response. ..but essentially the response was “If he was, show me the proof.”

First of all there most assuredly is proof.  At Graceland, there is a Certificate of Appreciation awarded to Elvis Presley in 1976 by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms on display.

Maria Columbus (who was the president of one of the longest running fan clubs) received the following letter in response to her questions regarding the above mentioned certificate.  This letter is dated Nov. 29, 1982.  This letter acknowledges Mr. Presley’s help by providing cover for an agent who traveled with his band.

Below is a copy of that letter:

Federal letter stating that Elvis provided cover for agent

Below is the response to a second letter which Maria wrote asking for more information and details about Elvis having provided cover for a government agent.  As you will see, it was made clear that there would be no more information to share on this topic.

Federal letter 2nd response

The following copy is of a portion of a memorandum to President Nixon regarding thanks to Elvis after his visit with President Nixon in Dec. 1970:

White House Memo about Elvis' visit

There are many photos of Elvis wearing articles of clothing which carried the DEA emblems.  I just recently came across one photo with a very distinct emblem….it reads “DEA STAFF“.  You will see this photo displayed below.

Elvis DEA STAFF logo full size photo

On May 24, 2004, FOX 8 Cleveland aired a follow up to their 2002 reports regarding Jesse, Dr. Hinton,  etc.  In that report , Ms. Stratford reported that “Some have said that maybe it was a drug ring.  Well, the DEA has investigated and did not find that to be the case“.  Below is a link to my YouTube video in order that you may see and hear this for yourself.

Here is the link to this video:

http://youtu.be/nS7lxxaT4D8

You will also hear Ms. Stratford report that they had attempted to get an investigation done in order to explain why the two “Elvis” DNA samples (from 2002), which were supposedly both those of Elvis himself DID NOT MATCH EACH OTHER!!!

(One of these samples was supposedly from a liver biopsy performed on Elvis around 1975; the other was supposedly taken from the autopsy).  Perhaps Mr. Beeny was given fake DNA samples. The reason that Jesse’s DNA did not match the two “Elvis” control samples in 2002 is because only Jesse’s DNA really was Elvis’ DNA!!! (unless someone tampered with the DNA which Jesse submitted).  Such irony!

JESSE’s DNA, from the 2002 samples, was the ONLY one which definitely belonged to Elvis…the two Elvis control samples were evidently frauds.

Jesse later wrote to the Attorney General of Missouri that when he attempted to furnish proof,  it was tampered with.

Bottom line is that Jesse absolutely is Elvis…there is NO doubt of that.  I have no way of knowing if someone tampered with the DNA sample which Jesse attempted to furnish to FOX 8 or if Mr. Beeny was given fake Elvis DNA samples.

Shown below is an official document which was issued by the sheriff of Shelby County in 1973.  This document made Elvis a DEPUTY SHERIFF in Shelby County, Tennessee.  This is further evidence that Elvis DID have legitimate and active status as an officer of the law….not just an honorary title.

New addition on February 10, 2010

Below is an excerpt from a letter written by Elvis/Jesse to Dr. Hinton while the book was in progress.  In this letter you will see that he had envisioned doing police work after he left in 1977.  You will see that he was recognized in Miami (even after the plastic surgery) and therefore it was determined that it would not be safe for him to continue participating in that work.  

Here is another statement written by Jesse concerning his work with the law enforcement agencies after 1977, the busts in which he participated as well as the plastic surgery.

I came across a video of Elvis wearing the DEA STAFF logo.  This video was made on the very day of his very last concert.  This shows him in Indianapolis, Indiana at the airport.  He looks fantastic in this video…very happy and enjoying himself while accepting awards of some type.  Below, you can see several “stills” that I have taken from the video.  While the logo is not quite so clear as the photo, one can still recognize that it is the same logo.

My dear friend, M.J., has located an article about Elvis’ government involvement in the battle against illegal drugs. 

Newspaper article about Elvis fighting drugs

The two following copies are from the same news article.  I have edited out some of the remarks supposedly made by Elvis… because if he said these things, it was spoken in private.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2010

The following photos are rare and will further prove my material in which I have shown that Elvis was very much involved in law enforcement.  He was not just collecting badges as a hobby.  The collection was one thing.  His actual involvement in law enforcement on all levels local, federal, etc. was a very important part of his life.

You will love these photos.  They are shared as a courtesy from my friend on Facebook…ELVIS LIVES.  If you have not been to Facebook and visited this person’s videos and photos, I urge you to do so.  He has such beautiful and very rare items.  I thank him for his permission to display the following photos.

Elvis flew on a commercial flight to Denver, Colorado to be awarded Captain’s badge with the Denver Police Department.

I encourage everyone to look at all of this very carefully.  Does this look like someone who was “strung out” and just collecting law enforcement badges as a pass time?

ELVIS ON A COMMERCIAL FLIGHT TO DENVER, CO. and RECEIVING THE CAPTAINS BADGE

   

   

Getting his Honarary Police Badge in Denver Colorado on November 17, 1970 before his concert at the Coliseum   Top colour photo from George in Denver

  The caption below the colour photo on George’s blog reads, “Dad with Elvis, circa ’69 or ’70. Elvis holds the Honorary Lieutenants badge my father presented to him”.   For your information: Elvis Presley was fascinated with cops and the trappings of cops. While my father may have given him an honorary Lieutenants badge in probably ’69 or ’70, after my father retired, Elvis returned to Denver and the cops fawned all over the King – resulting in Elvis giving select officers brand new Cadillacs and Lincolns. Elvis was very generous. One short anecdote. The day Elvis met with my father, my father came home and, laughing like hell, related that Elvis spent the day kissing one woman after another — mostly police department clerks and secretarys — right on the lips. I suspect there are some pretty old ladies out there who still talk about the day they kissed the King.    

 

    
 
 
 

On a commercial flight from Memphis to Denver in November (after the 17th) or December 1970   The photos come from the following web page – Little Rock Ski Club   In one of their newsletters there is mention of Elvis:

  “Perhaps the most exciting early trip was to Vail in 1969 or 70. We flew on a direct Braniff flight from Little Rock to Denver. The flight originated in Memphis and on board waiting for us was none other than the King himself – Elvis! The first thing he did was to get on the intercom and sing “Love Me Tender” to the passengers. Then he made a trip through the cabin making a brief stop, talking to everyone, most of whom were ski club members. It was truly memorable and I have always admired him for his down to earth way of treating us on that day.”

Also, here is the link to an Elvis blog page on which I located more of the above material:

I haven’t added to this page in a while.  However, you will find related articles added on my current news and events pages.  Please do visit those pages for my very frequent updates on many topics.

Here is another very good photo of Elvis in his DEA apparel in June of 1977.  As we have seen before, he was wearing his federal agent clothes very frequently leading up to August, 1977.  I wish we could read the title of the book he is holding.

Below is another item to substantiate that Elvis was a duly commissioned law enforcement officer in Memphis:

 This is a news article from my Current News and Events Page 13 a January, 2012

ELVIS WAS A FEDERAL AGENT:

Early on, with my web site, one of the self proclaimed (and publicly accepted) “Elvis Experts” refuted my facts about Elvis having been a federal DEA agent. When I stated this fact about Elvis, this expert said “If he was, show me the proof.” to which I displayed quite a few photos and documents with added details to substantiate my statement.

Some of my substantiating evidence was written transcripts of statements made by Elvis himself. Heretofore, those written words were all that I had. But, yesterday on Facebook I found displayed a very recently added video on YouTube of Elvis on stage making the statement that he is a federal narcotics agent. This is a lengthy monologue of Elvis refuting the trash written about him in the movie magazines. I know you will thoroughly enjoy seeing and hearing this.

Elvis was livid about the lies being told about him…with very good reason. He expresses his righteous indignation in no uncertain terms. I wish I had been there to applaud and shout out “Give’em Hell, Elvis.”

Quite some time ago, during a phone conversation with Jesse, he affirmed that I am correct in having my page about his federal and other law enforcement agencies involvement. His response to my query about having my page was “Yes. I know all kinds of people.”

So, once and for all, here is the truth straight from Elvis’s own mouth. I ask the “Elvis Experts” and everyone else, are you going to dispute what Elvis himself stated on stage by saying he was lying, or high on drugs, etc. or are you going to believe the words of the man himself? To do anything but accept the words of the man himself on stage and then again to me on the phone, is the ultimate act of disrespect to this man who stood so tall his entire life.

I do not care for the latter portion of this video which paints a negative image of Col. Parker and Elvis.

I do want to say, while I have it on my mind, that Jesse and Col. Parker were close friends until the day that Col. Parker passed away. I know this for a fact because Jesse told our mutual close friend, about 3 weeks before Col. Parker passed away, that the Col. was dying. To my knowledge, this fact had not been made public anywhere. I was driving home from work and heard Col. Parker’s death announced on the radio. I called our mutual friend to tell him that the Col. had indeed died just as Jesse had said. Turns out that Jesse had already called our mutual friend and told him of Col. Parker’s death and said “See, I told you so.” Jesse told our friend before it was announced in the news.

I want to thank, so very much, the person who added this video on YouTube just a little over a week ago. Uploaded by on Jan 11, 2012 who also wrote this description:

In this Video Elvis tells his Fans he is a Government Agent and they laugh because they think he is joking, But Elvis says ” I’m an eighth degree black belt in Karate. I’m a Narcotics Government agent.” then the audience laughs thinking it’s a joke, then Elvis say’s ” I am swear to God”

I personally love Elvis’s response to some who called out “boo.o.o.o.o.o” from the audience. How dare anyone say that to Elvis when he is stating something so important!?!

PLEASE DO WATCH THE FOLLOWING VIDEO FOR THE TRUTH

IMPORTANT UPDATE

DATED TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013

Here you will hear Elvis tell the audience that he is a Federal Narcotics Agent.

This is, by far, the most excellent presentation of Elvis speaking for himself on stage explaining his work with the DEA, his association and friendship with John O’Grady, and his justifiable anger with the people who were telling lies about him which were published in the movie magazines.

One point on which I have to disagree is the fact that Elvis, who is now Jesse, did choose NOT to go into the Witness Protection Program because he could have had NO contact with anyone.  That would have, of course, included me…so thank you, Jesse, for making that choice.

I do hope that this proof, from Elvis’s own mouth, will dispel the ignorant statements made by Patrick Lacey and Cory Cooper who are self appointed “Elvis experts” who have said that the badge was nothing but another of the many badges of his collection and was only honorary.

My heartfelt thanks to MLordandGod who published this video on YouTube on  Mar 24, 2013.

Below is a video which shows Elvis at the airport in Indianapolis, Indiana on June 26, 1977.  He looked wonderful in this film clip.  Also, I want to draw your attention to the fact that he was wearing his DEA Staff emblem on his jacket.  I know I have shown another clip of this video before here on my site…but this version is longer and includes some footage which was not in the earlier version.

I just saw this new series of photos on Facebook from  ALL ABOUT ELVIS which was posted by Dale Barling.   Please note that this Elvis Group specifically asks that certain topics are prohibited from their group page…one of those is that of anything related to any Elvis conspiracy i.e. Elvis being alive be mentioned on their page.  I ask that all of my visitors please abide by their rules if you should chose to visit their page.

This is a particularly good photo of the DEA STAFF emblem which he wore just about all of the time (when he was dressed casually) leading up to August 16, 1977.  I love these photos.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2014

NOTE:  Some of the below article will be redundant of things shown above, but it will be worth your time to peruse it because there is some new and invaluable material.

A good friend to my web site, Ron Collamore, Emailed me this week with a very interesting article regarding the DEA logo running suit which Elvis was seen wearing on so many occasions in 1977 leading up to his “retirement“.  On my page dedicated to Elvis’ federal government involvement and other law enforcement work you may see some of the photos of Elvis in this DEA logo suit.  http://lindahoodsigmontruth.com/elvis-federal-other-law-enforcement-agencies-active-duty-photos-documentation/  

The photo of him which is purported to be the very last photo ever taken of him as “Elvis” in the wee hours of August 16, 1977, he was wearing one of these same DEA logo running suits.  There WAS a reason that he was wearing that type of suit…it was a message to people that he actually was a DEA agent.  Elvis stated this fact from his Vegas stage on three consecutive nights; He spoke the same statement each night and showed a document which verified his Lifetime Member position in the International Narcotics Squad Association (I may have the title of this agency slightly off as I am quoting from memory).  You may see the video of one of these performances below this article.

Ron sent me the following excerpts from the article titled   ELVIS: MEMPHIS TO MADISON” by Bruce Frey

“Hi Linda,
 
I came across this article, ELVIS: MEMPHIS TO MADISON” by Bruce Frey. Good article!
 
He writes, ” I attempted to find the source of Presley’s DEA outfit mystery and contacted Elvis Presley archivist at Graceland. They were confused about the outfit and did not seem to have any information. I reminded them that they currently had the DEA running suit displayed in Graceland which they confirmed. The archivist stated that they never learned the origin of this particular outfit.”
 
And so, he writes, “I contacted the DEA museum collection manager, Vince Lutes, who informed me that Presley had acquired the “DEA Staff” running outfit through his personal contacts in the DEA. Lutes states that this particular outfit was only available to DEA officials and staff workers at this time and that the general public would not have been available to obtain one. Presley was obviously very fond of this outfit as he can be seen in numerous photos towards the end of his life wearing this”
 
He did mention that Elvis was wearing this outfit on very early morning of August 16, 1977.”

I thank Ron so sincerely for bringing this article to my attention.

As I most often post a link to give credit for any full article from which each excerpt which I share is taken (when at all possible), I followed up and located the original article on Elvis Information Network aka EIN.  I don’t often post the link to their site due to the fact that it was their stubborn refusal to remove the lies which Paul Monroe told (during an interview on their site) about me.  Ironically, my web site came into existence BECAUSE of those lies and because of the lies told about me by a woman named B. Lee Rowe whose site page, filled with more slanderous untruths about me, was linked from EIN

That is the bare essence of the things which caused me to ask Jesse if I could use my real name to defend myself.  Jesse’s answer was “Yes…and you can use my name too!”  So here we are today…five and a half years later; 121 pages of my site; 591,358 total visitors; 45,981 registered users…and growing every day.   So, here’s my hat off to EIN which took the first erroneous steps that have resulted in my very successful web site which is approved by Jesse Presley who IS Elvis Aron Presley.  So, everything does happen when it should as it should.  If life hands you lemons, make lemonade.  Welcome to Linda Hood Sigmon’s lemonade stand!!!

http://www.elvisinfonet.com/spotlight_elvis_madison_incident.html

Below I have captured a small amount of text from Mr. Frey’s lengthy interview.  This interview was created to tell about the gas station brawl in Madison, Wisconsin  which caused Elvis to stop to help the victim of the attack by two men.  This story has been passed down in a number of ways…by the media, by word of mouth, etc.  Mr. Frey was there and saw the whole thing and shook hands with Elvis after the fight was broken up.  So, this full article tells, in great detail, exactly what Elvis did from the moment he stepped from his limo until he returned to it after shocking the two assailants so much that they just forgot all about attacking the gas station attendant. 

The reason that this incident is of particular interest to me and others is that Elvis was wearing his DEA Staff logo running suit at the time when he stopped this fight.

                ” …Thompson believes the only reason the limousine stopped was because Presley burst out of the backseat.

I went over what Presley was wearing that night and was confused by Thompson’s recollection of what Presley had been wearing. Thompson recalls that Presley had little time to change out of his concert outfit as they headed to Madison from their previous venue. Thompson was aware that Presley did own some dark jackets with DEA logos on them but just could not recall which one he may have put on. Hearing Thompson’s recollection and confusion about Presley’s clothing that evening, I believe the confusion stemmed from the fact that Presley may have had both outfits on, having not changed completely out of his concert outfit and put on his DEA running outfit over it.

I attempted to find the source of Presley’s DEA outfit mystery and contacted Elvis Presley archives at Graceland. They were confused about the outfit and did not seem to have any information. I reminded them that they currently had the DEA running suit displayed in Graceland, which they confirmed. The archivist stated that they never learned the origin of this particular outfit.

I contacted the DEA museum collection manager, Vince Lutes, who informed me that Presley had acquired the “DEA Staff” running outfit through his personal contacts in the DEA. Lutes stated that this particular outfit was only available to DEA officials and staff workers at this time and that the general public would not have been able to obtain one. Presley was obviously very fond of this outfit as he can be seen in numerous photos towards the end of his life wearing this.

Presley would be seen wearing this same outfit as he was photographed by a fan for the last time as he returned to Graceland in the early morning hours before he died. It’s presumable that Presley being known for his custom styling would be wearing his concert suit and belt with his dark blue nylon DEA outfit covering his stage outfit, packing heat, and a federal badge to break up this early morning gas station fight.”

Below are several photos which appear here on my web site of Elvis wearing the DEA Staff suits.  Also, I shall post below the photos a video showing Elvis arriving in Indianapolis for his final stage performance as Elvis.  You will see that he was presented an award at this time and, more importantly, you will see that he was wearing one of his DEA outfits.  The photos of Elvis wearing one of his DEA logos can be found in many instances over the Internet.

Below is an excerpt from a letter written by Elvis/Jesse to Dr. Hinton while the book was in progress.  In this letter you will see that he had envisioned doing police work after he left in 1977.  You will see that he was recognized in Miami (even after the plastic surgery) and therefore it was determined that it would not be safe for him to continue participating in that work.  

(this excerpt was copied from my rough draft of the book)

Here is another statement written by Jesse concerning his work with the law enforcement agencies after 1977, the busts in which he participated as well as the plastic surgery.

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2014

A friend, Noddy, shared some photos of Elvis with me recently.  Below is one special photo for which I asked her permission to display here on my site.  As you can see Elvis was proudly holding one of his badges with, what appears to be, his ID Credentials for this badge.  It is such a lovely photo of Linda Thompson as well.  I am sorry that we cannot pinpoint exactly which badge he is displaying for the camera.
