Listening to the above got me to thinking back to one of my favorite ORION songs. I think everyone will enjoy this….leave it up to you to decide who you think is singing this one. Please remember that Jesse told me that I am right that some of the ORION songs really were him. This song is from the ORION Rockabilly album which is my favorite next to the The Killer, The Kingalbum which was never acknowledged as being connected to the ORION project at all. In fact, after I accidentally stumbled upon this album, The Killer, The King, I phoned Sun Records in Nashville (which was then owned by Shelby Singleton who was the head of the Orion Project and had ALL of the Orion records copyrighted to his Sun Studio which he had bought from Sam Phillips in Memphis) to ask for some background regarding the The Killer, The King album. Surprisingly, I was told by the man who answered the phone at Sun Studios that they “had never heard of it” and hastened to get off the phone. It is absolutely my firm belief that all of the songs on The Killer, The King album are Elvis himself. This was a beautifully done album…very special bifold album and blue vinyl. You may read all about this album on my Orion pages at the following links: https://lindahoodsigmonstruth.com/text-page-for-orion-elvis-jesse-connection/ and https://lindahoodsigmonstruth.com/elvisjesse-and-orion-documentation-images/.
This album should have been an international smash hit…a classic beyond all prior music. However, much like Jesse’s beautiful CD, it evidently just languished and never got the widespread recognition and acclaim which it deserved. This was most likely due to the fact that everyone thought that Elvis was dead and so it could not have been him singing on the album…unless he recorded it before he “died” which seemed to make no sense as it was known that Elvis and Jerry Lee were not always on the best of terms. Although Elvis and Red West both told James Bacon, the famous Hollywood journalist, that Elvis did record the song “Save The Last Dance For Me” with Jerry Lee Lewis to help Jerry out. By the way, for those new to this information, Save The Last Dance For Me ended up being put into the whole ORION project package. Which makes everyone go Hmmmm????
So now enjoy one of my favorite ORION songs MEMPHIS SUN…….. Maybe Elvis? Maybe Orion/Jimmy Ellis? Maybe Elvis and Orion/Jimmy Ellis both? Great lyrics either way. THIS SONG IS NOT INCLUDED ON THE KILLER, THE KINGALBUM.
Because I continue to receive questions from people who have read or heard about the joke “news article” which was published in the satirical Internet site EMPIRE NEWS back in January, I want to set the record straight again.
That joke and fantasy news release stated that an 80 year old homeless man had been found dead under a bridge in San Diego, CA and that this man’s DNA had been proven to match that of Elvis Presley.
PLEASE DO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS WAS NEVER A LEGITIMATE NOR SERIOUS NEWS STORY WHATSOEVER.
I just spoke with Jesse last Thursday and he is doing very well.
I am sure that many of you are familiar with the Snopes Internet site which researches and validates or refutes rumors. Below is the link to their article regarding this rumor and labeling it as “FALSE“.
What makes me the maddest is that the creator of this piece of garbage used the name “Jessie” for the subject of their gruesome tale.
Here is a very brief excerpt from the Snopes article:
Is this true? Shocking DNA Results Revealed: Body Of Elderly Homeless Man Identified As Elvis Presley
Origins: On 31 January 2015, Empire News published an article positing the body of a homeless man discovered in San Diego was found through DNA testing to be that of singer Elvis Presley:
Earlier this month, an 80-year-old, homeless, white-bearded man was found deceased under an overpass in San Diego, California. Nobody knew the man’s name, but friends referred to him as Jessie, so investigators decided to try DNA testing with hopes that something would pop up in the nationwide DNA database. What popped up on the computer screen in the high-tech lab stunned everyone. The DNA results of ‘Jessie Doe’ were an exact match to the one and only, Elvis Aaron Presley.

A good friend, Sabrina, has shared another great comparison of a photo of Elvis with our photo of Jesse in 1994. This is an exceptionally good match even though Elvis was not smiling, the angle of his gaze shows that all of the features match Jesse’s. I thank Sabrina so very much for her time and thoughtfulness in compiling this proof for us all to enjoy.
“Herewith you will find two pictures: one is original from 1968; the other one 26 years later (your picture). Putting them together I was left very shocked, in a positive way, as you know I have no doubt.
It is well remarkable how the features of his face are the same as well as his nose and the eyes despite the surgical operation and the age. In 1968 picture, his cheekbones are not marked just because he was not laughing!
Besides what I found, are the sideburns (same cut, shape and level) and the thick hair…. the same, only the colour changes! “
Non-reversed image of Elvis (shown below) compared to Jesse. I was unaware that the photo of Elvis (above) had been reversed until someone notified me about it on our Messages for Jesse page. However, as one can see, it does not change the fact that Jesse’s facial structure matches that of Elvis.
Below is the photo from which Sabrina took her comparison to Jesse.
Isn’t it wonderful to see how much happier he looks in 1994. So much of the stress and pressure was absent in 1994.

Below is the link to an interesting article about Mother Delores Hart who published her autobiographical book in recent years and the outpouring of help which her Abbey has received subsequently.
Nun who kissed Elvis helps save abbey
Pat Eaton-Robb, Associated Press10:33 p.m. CDT May 20, 2015
BETHLEHEM, Conn. – Mother Dolores Hart finds it miraculous that she was able to turn one kiss with Elvis Presley into the spark that helped save an abbey.
The former starlet who walked away from Hollywood in 1963 to become a nun spun her tale into a fundraising campaign for her crumbling monastery in rural Connecticut.
I want to share the following video in regard to the above article about the Denver Police Department museum. I think Jesse will find this video especially interesting because it is regarding the origin and the history of the police badge in general and the Denver Police Department badges in particular.

I loved something which Wanda June Hill shared with me in an Email this week and I obtained her permission to share it here. Looking back, she now realizes that Elvis gave her many clues about what he was planning to do. She says that he even said to her “I’ll be gone but I’ll be around.“
Wanda knew that he was ill and had a lot of health issues going on and Elvis had her convinced that he was going to die. Obviously, he wanted her to be prepared when she heard the news that he died.
Wanda wrote in her Email:
“I fully get it now…and I realize yes, he was telling me goodbye way back there and not because he was physically dying, but he was just leaving the life he had, and forging a new one just so he could manage to live…other wise I know he truly would have died from the stress on his body and his mind…he had no peace ever, and he was having to take so much medication just to sleep and try to rest and that isn’t real resting at all…it’s a killer kind of thing. He had to die to live…thank goodness there was someone who came to help him and was willing to let him “out of that trap”. And that he was convinced it could work…he truly did not think he could escape…but I know he really wanted to badly. He said “it’s killin’ me, I can’t keep doin’ this…” he was right on.
The following is taken from the web site http://www.elvislightedcandle.org/WJH/epletter_1977.htm I so highly recommend this web site. If you have not visited, I hope that you will. It is a treasure of wonderful information about, and related to, Elvis, the real man. The man behind the superstar image.
The following letter has meant so much to me personally in my search for all things related to Elvis having chosen to retire…and to live on as Jesse. When I first saw the following letter many years ago, I was so very, very impressed by the fact that Elvis wrote this “farewell” letter to Wanda on August 3rd, 1977…then held it until right before August 16 to mail it. I have always felt that he tried to time the mailing of this letter so that Wanda would receive the letter on the day he “died“. However. Wanda received it on the 15th which was,of course, the day before his death was announced to the world.
Not long ago, I told Jesse how much the timing of that “goodbye” letter had meant to me the first time I saw it. He seemed pleased that I had taken note of the letter and the dates and said that I was the only person who had ever mentioned that to him. I am sure that he put a lot of thought into wording and planning the mailing of that letter. He wanted to let Wanda know, through clues, that he chose the exact date of his “death“. He had prepared her for quite some time that he was going to “die“. He could not come right out and tell his plans to anyone outside of the 5 people who were involved and who had taken a vow of secrecy at Graceland one night. I know it was very difficult for him to leave behind those true friends like Wanda and her family…but it HAD to be done that way.
From the Elvis – A Lighted Candle web site (link shown above):
EXCERPTS FROM A LETTER WRITTEN BY ELVIS TO WANDA JUNE HILL. IT WAS DATED AUGUST 3, 1977. SHE RECEIVED IT ON AUGUST THE 15TH, THE DAY BEFORE HIS DEATH:
You remember the first time I talked with you. I can recall thinking how nice it was to talk to someone who sounded like I used to sound and that you were sweet and innocent and nervous. I thought then how much I was going to enjoy knowing you and your family. I felt this ugly thing called jealousy because of your child when I saw her. I wanted her for my own, just because she was so loving and I wanted that loving for myself. Listening to you talk about your family life and your husband made me want that kind of relationship too. I never met many married people in California that were happy in marriage until I met you and then some of your friends. I guess it is true about the people you run with influencing your life. Mine has had its bad influences all the way. But I wanted to write to you and tell you that I have enjoyed knowing you and your friends this past year and a half most of all. I have never regretted meeting any of them and I have not one time wished that I did not have you for a friend. I could and feel I will be able to trust and enjoy an open relationship with you and with many of the people that befriend you and your family. I think that is a blessing from heaven and I treasure it.
“Remember when you came to the lot at M.G.M. in the spring of 1963 and I asked you to have lunch with me? I knew then I could trust you and that you would not do anything funny in there with me. I wanted to be able to just relax and with you I could. I was supposed to have lunch with another girl on the set that day and then you came up and I told her another time but she and I weren’t just going to eat lunch, in fact I was skipping lunch but then you were so nice and sweet and cute and I decided to spend it with you instead. You didn’t even know that other girl was giving you the evil eye the rest of the day and she damn near tripped you a couple of times and you didn’t even know! I’ll bet you never even noticed when she chopped at you do you? In fact I’ll bet you don’t even remember it. That was the kind of girl you used to be, trusting and awful sweet. I liked you from the first because you weren’t like her. I hope that you don’t change as you grow older and more successful. I want to tell you that life is nothing without trust and love and good friends. It is nothing without family and loved ones. And you can not replace them once they are gone. I know. Believe me. Love them and take care of them and never regret the things required of you by them. For that is what life is about. Loving and caring. Love, Elvis P.
“P.S. If I have done anything to harm or hurt you over the past few years please forgive me for it. I know you have worried about me and spent a lot of time trying to help me, and it did. I would like you to remember me and to help others to do the same. But I don’t have the right to ask for a thing. So I’ll just hint real loudly, alright?”
I know that it was for the best that Wanda did believe that Elvis died. The sole purpose of her writing her books was to defend Elvis against the vicious lies which were being published about him. Wanda, like myself, gets fighting mad when there is some nasty lie spoken or written about Elvis. She was fighting to tell the fans the truth about the sweet, kind, generous, intelligent, sensitive and brave man that Elvis Aron Presley was. Just as I do now to tell the truth about the man that Elvis was and the man that Jesse Presley is to this very day.
You see, had Wanda known that Elvis did not die, she could have never spoken out in her books and in person about him the way she did. Had she been privy to the fact that he faked his death, she would not have felt free to do anything publicly. I know that Wanda was meant to write her books just as she did. I know that there are countless fans who were helped and strengthened by her books just as I was.
Sunday, May 24, 2015 ∼ The Six-year anniversary of the opening of this web site.
Well, it has been a long and winding road for the past 6 years. But, through it all, the light of truth has never dimmed from this web site. I thank all of my visitors who have contributed to the success of my site. I thank Jesse for his constant friendship and presence during this entire time. I thank God for blessing me with Elvis during my formative years and now in my personal life as Jesse. I cannot imagine my life without his presence since I was only 9 years old.
Another wonderful and steadfast friend to me is my closest and most trusted friend, M J, who today has posted a beautiful written statement on the Messages to Jesse page of this site. I have gotten her permission to also share it here so that more visitors may see it. I thank M J, from the bottom of my heart, for all that her friendship means to me, Tom and Jesse.

The following is a quote of Linda Thompson…reportedly from one of the Alanna Nash books:
“I think it’s terrible for people to say they couldn’t imagine Elvis growing old. Everybody has that right, even if they are a sex symbol. He wanted to live to be an old man.”
I am so very thankful that he has lived a long time and I hope and pray he will live for many, many more years.

I want to share with everyone that Jesse did phone me this evening. He is doing pretty well. He tried to call me several times last week but was unable to get to speak with me because something went haywire with our call-waiting service. It was arbitrarily ending calls in progress without connecting us to the incoming call properly. Gr.r.r.r.r.r AT&T does NOT want to mess with my phone calls with Jesse!!! Jesse’s calls were the incoming calls and so I wasn’t getting to speak with him. I did not know that those calls were him until he told me this afternoon. He is taking care of the dental problem so that should be corrected within the next week or so…the pain is better. He said that his Dr. has changed some of his medicine and that it is causing him to feel fatigued. Hopefully that is just because of his initial adjustment and will get better pretty quickly. That’s all the news for this time.

A very dear friend, Lucilia, shared this video with me on my Facebook timeline. Lucilia shared this with me to lift my spirits after a turbulent discussion on one of my Facebook pages…and I thank her so much. I was unaware of this video on YouTube. You will recognize that it is one of Jesse’s songs from his 2012 CD, ELVIS FOUND ALIVE. This was the song which I chose as my theme song for my web site because of all the untrue and unfair attacks under which my site and I were coming.
Jesse/Elvis “Wanna Be Startin’ something” (com legendas)
Elvis is alive, his name now is Jesse. He recorded a cd in 2011, with 15 songs. This is one of them. This voice belongs to Elvis, for sure. Age 76 years old.

A good friend shared the following news story with me. I thank Pamela M. so very much for thinking to send this to me on Facebook. I know Jesse will enjoy reading this story as well. This story originally ran on Saturday, 16 January, 1999. But, it is still a very enjoyable story.
An Elvis Presley fan who wrote to the king of rock’n’roll nearly 40 years ago, has at long last received a reply.
Karen Golz, 50, wrote to the “the King” while he was serving with the US army in Germany.
She received the long-awaited hand-written reply after it was found among papers belonging to Elvis’s German landlady, who apparently forgot to send it.
The stamped and addressed letter, signed “Your friend Elvis”, was found in the attic and passed on to an Elvis fan club in Germany who spent weeks tracking down Ms Golz. It is now said to be worth about £3,600.
“My eyes filled with tears when I received the letter and realised that Elvis had written back to me after all,” said Ms Golz.
“When the Elvis Presley Appreciation Society called round to see me and told me what had happened to my letter and handed it to me, I could scarcely believe my eyes.
“I opened the envelope and there it was. A letter for me all those years ago from my idol. I never stopped loving him.”
Karen, who lived in Oberhausen, West Germany, in 1960: had written: “It’s my birthday soon and if you send me your autograph I promise I will marry you when I grow up.”
Elvis wrote a personal note at the end of his reply: “May you have a happy 11th birthday – and a lot of “Teddy Bears” (referring to his 50s hit) – your friend Elvis”.
