    Crypt Keeper Alert!

    The original crypt that held Elvis Presley's body is up for auction. Elvis' body was held in the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis for roughly two months, before he was buried at his beloved Graceland Estate.

    Elvis's mother was also interred in the same crypt before being buried alongside the King at Graceland. Elvis' father Vernon received permission from the state of Tennessee to bury them both on the private land. The crypt in which they were both briefly interred has been empty ever since.

    The Julien's Auction takes place on June 23 and 24.

    Bidding will start at $100,000.

    Would you want to be buried in Elvis' original crypt? Is this cryptical or creepy?
