    No, because conspiracy theories weren't as big or as ridiculous then as now.

    He died from a known malady that caused heart failure. He was found dead in his bathroom. His fame was his undoing as doctors refused to do a simple surgery (distended colon) to alleviate the problem. They feared negative publicity if something went wrong.

    This is the first I ever heard that. Did you hear about it at a QAnon meeting or a trump rally...

    There is one theory that he just wanted out of the business.

    Supposedly, he wanted to retire, but his celebrity status that had prevailed for the previous 20 years with no sign of letting up wouldn't allow it.

    According to the theory, he made arrangements with a man who was dying of cancer to get plastic surgery, and then, at the moment of his death, his body would substitute for Elvis to allow Elvis to make a quiet exit, never to be heard from again.

    The man's family would then be taken care of for the rest of their lives.

    Some said that the body of "Elvis" never looked quite like him.

    Many things have been theorized. This is one of the crazier ones and has been thoroughly debunked.

    Of course it has been theorized, along with the notion that he didn't die. 

    As it didn't happen you are free to choose any motive you can imagine.

    No, there was no need for that. His autopsy showed his bowels were backed up for months from a very poor diet and he was taking all kinds of pills. You could tell by looking at him in his last concerts he wasn't going to live a long life.

    No, I never heard that theory. He was so overweight and out of shape it surprised no one when he died in 1977. Which also makes it extremely unlikely that he faked it.
