Elvis Presley died August 16, 1977. Just 12 days later, a group of men tried to steal his remains and hold them for ransom.

The plan to steal the king's body is detailed in the documentary
"The Man Who Dared to Steal the King". It was made by Tri-Marq Communications, a media production
company in Milwaukee.

The company got the details of the plot from an interview with Raymond "Bubba" Green, a man who claimed to be the ringleader.

“This producer says well hey, I’ve got this thing that’s been sitting on the shelf for a while. Would you mind taking a look at it,” said Tom Graybill, vice president of sales at Tri-Marq.

“So I’m watching this, and it’s the most fascinating story that I’ve ever heard of about this guy who plotted with other conspirators to steal the body of Elvis Presley,” he said.

In the documentary, “Bubba” explains why someone must have alerted police to the plot before they tried to carry it out. “I said go straight and instead of going straight he turned
right and pulled right down to where CBS, ABC, NBC, the SWAT teams… everyone in the world was waiting for us right there,” Green said.

The documentary looks at theories on who could’ve tipped off police and how Green managed to avoid going to prison for the attempted heist.
