8/16/77: Ginger Alden Revisited

UPDATE (07/06/11):  Ginger Alden Revisited, Part II, is linked below.

On August 16, 1977, Ginger Alden (Elvis's fiancée) was with Elvis in his upstairs suite, and at 2:20 that afternoon she found his lifeless body on the floor of the bathroom.  Since then, Ginger's actions that day have been described in various ways, most of which are very much at odds with the facts.  With Ginger's long-awaited book in the works, I am going to revisit this topic in the hope that by the time the book is published, at least some fans will be able to approach it with a clearer understanding of what really happened that day, and a fairer and more reasonable view of Ginger's involvement in the day's events.

Part I is here.

Part II is here.
