Man to Move Elvis Is Alive Museum to Mississippi

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Andy Key says he's moving the Elvis is Alive Museum collection of memorabilia from Wright City, Missouri, to Mississippi. That's where Key lives and Elvis was born.

Key won the eBay bidding and bought the collection that includes photographs, books, FBI files, DNA reports and other memorabilia that aim to support the theory that Presley never died.

Key isn't hardcore on that issue, but says he's "open to the possibility," adding that Elvis is certainly welcome to the grand opening.

Key is looking at locations in Laurel, Jackson or Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Elvis Presley Enterprises, which manages Graceland, the King's estate in Memphis, previously has said it has no comment on the museum, a transformed coin-operated laundry 55 miles west of St. Louis.
