Lisa Marie celebration of life held at Graceland
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Fans and family gathered at Graceland on Sunday to pay respects and honor the life of Lisa Marie Presley.
Lisa Marie, who was also a singer-songwriter, had recently been at Graceland for what would have been her father’s 88th birthday.
In front of Graceland, fans from all around the world gather to leave notes and flowers on the stone wall as they prepare to say farewell to Lisa Marie Presley.
“Even though she didn’t live here, she always bragged about her allegiance to Memphis and loved Memphis and even referred to as the Memphis girl on the west coast. So, she was proud to be a Memphian,” Kevin Kane said, President and CEO of Memphis Tourism.
Graceland says fans will have a chance to view the gravesite on Sunday after a public memorial service.
Lisa Marie’s family is asking that in lieu of flowers fans make a contribution to the Elvis Presley charitable foundation. The organization supports several causes in Memphis and the Whitehaven area, mostly focused on the arts, education and children’s programs.
No charges filed against Tenn. officers involved in sex scandal
LA VERGNE, Tenn. (WSMV) – No charges have been filed at this time against the eight Tennessee police officers involved in a shocking sex scandal that has made national headlines.
District Attorney General Jennings Jones told WSMV4 most of the violations listed in the City of La Vergne’s investigative report appear to be policy-related rather than criminal.
The investigation found officers within the department’s evening shift were having sex with each other while on duty and on city property. The investigative report also highlighted a raucous hot tub party and the exchange of explicit naked photos between officers. These actions violated department policy but not the law, Jones said.
Five La Vergne officers were fired due to conduct violations and three others were suspended. WSMV4 recently found many of the officers were reprimanded at least once before the sex scandal.
