CALABASAS (CNS) - Benjamin Keough, the son of Lisa Marie Presley and grandson of Elvis Presley, was found dead today of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound in Calabasas.
Keough was 27.
Keough was found around 6:30 a.m. in the 24800 block of Alexandra Court with a gunshot wound to his chest, according to Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The deceased was confirmed as Keough, coroner's investigator Kelsie Weber told City News Service. The sheriff's department initially reported that the body was found in the street and described it a homicide.
Lisa Marie Presley's agent told The Hollywood Reporter she is “completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter, Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
