Elvis Presley autopsy instruments removed from auction
The legitimacy of the collection of medical implements was brought into question
The auction was due to feature forceps, aneurysm hooks and even a toe tag for identifying Presley's corpse in the morgue.
The assortment of instruments were reportedly kept by a senior embalmer who worked at the Memphis funeral home where Presley's body was stored after he died in 1977.
Set to sell for an estimated $14,000 (£9,300), the auction was called into question after another employee at the home suggested the equipment was sterilised and used again in other autopsies, reports Contact Music.
