California, United States – Elvis Presley’s only grandson, Benjamin Keough dies at age 27.

Lisa Marie Presleys manager, Roger Widynowski announced the death of Lisa Marie’s only son Keough’s death on Sunday and had given no further details about the cause of his death.

Although there was no immediate information on the circumstances, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office confirmed that the death of a person of his name and age is currently under investigation.

Lisa Marie’s manager, Widynowski said that Lisa Marie, 52, was “heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated”. He continued saying that “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life,” and that she is  “trying to stay strong” for her three daughters.”

Benjamin Keough was the youngest of Lisa Marie’s two children she had with her first husband, musician Danny Keough, before they divorced in 1994. The eldest child is actress Riley Keough of age 31.

Two other daughters of Lisa Marie are 11-year-old twins she had with her fourth husband, musician and producer Michael Lockwood. She married Lockwood in 2006 after brief marriages to pop star Michael Jackson and actor Nicolas Cage.

Lisa Marie had once described his son Keough’s resemblance to her famous father, Rock ‘n’ roll legend Elvis Presley, who died in 1997 at the age of 42. She described Keough as “just uncanny.”
