Tragedy has struck the late Elvis Presley's family as his only daughter, Lisa Marie is mourning the loss of son, Benjamin Keough, whom has passed away due to an apparent suicide. He was just 27-years-old. Law enforcement told TMZ that the son of Lisa Marie Presley and ex-husband, Danny Keough took his own life via a shotgun. Unlike his super famous family, Benjamin was not one to indulge in the spotlight though he did secure a five million dollar record deal in 2009 and shares an uncanny likeness to his late grandfather, something his mom has acknowledged in the past: "Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage." Lisa Marie has battled her own demons, having dealt with opioid addiction. Her father was also addicted to prescription barbiturates which is presumed to have led to his untimely death. Benjamin leaves behind his parents, three siblings, and grandmother, Priscilla Presley as well as many loved ones, friends, and fans. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time.
