According to The Daily Memphian, Keough’s burial was the first to take place at Graceland in 40 years, with the last being Elvis’ grandmother in 1980 and the first since the home has been open for public tours.

Following an autopsy back in July, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled his cause of death as a shotgun wound.

In a statement at the time, Lisa Marie Presley’s representative Roger Widynowski said that she is “completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley.

“She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”

Lisa Marie once described Keough’s resemblance to her famous father as “just uncanny”.
