The 30th anniversary celebrations of Elvis Presley's death turned sour on Wednesday (15Aug07) when a 67-year-old fan died in the searing Memphis, Tennessee heat.
The unnamed New Jersey woman passed away in a tent while on a pilgrimage to Presley's grave at his Graceland home. The King died 30 years ago on Thursday (16Aug07).
Although she had a history of heart problems, police have attributed the woman's death to temperatures which hit 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40.5 degrees Celsius).
Thousands of fans are flocking to pay tribute to Presley, and are queuing for hours to take part in a procession past Presley's grave.
Presley died in a Graceland bathroom at the age of 42 on 16 August 1977.
