    Elvis Presley's handgun has left the building

    MEMPHIS, Tennessee (AP) -- A handgun once owned by Elvis Presley was stolen from a museum as fans converged on Memphis to mark the 30th anniversary of the singer's death, authorities said.

    The black, 9mm Smith & Wesson pistol was taken Tuesday from a display case in the Elvis After Dark museum.

    The museum is across the street from Graceland, Presley's mansion, police said.

    A video camera caught a man removing the pistol from the display case around midnight.

    Totally silly, but I imagine Nixon's head from Futarama as the culprit.

    they found the gun in a portable bathroom toilet
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Update:

    MEMPHIS, Tennessee (AP) -- A handgun stolen from an exhibit during last week's commemoration of the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death has been recovered.

    A fan signs the wall outside Graceland during the vigil marking the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death.

    Surveillance video showed a man reaching into a display case at the "Elvis After Dark" exhibit at Graceland, Presley's mansion, and removing a black, 9 mm Smith & Wesson pistol on August 14.

    Travis Brookins turned the gun over to police Monday after the theft was reported by news media.

    Brookins said he was cleaning portable toilets behind the exhibit hall last Thursday when he found the gun in the muck. Unaware the weapon had been stolen, Brookins took it home and cleaned it.

    "He called us and said he thinks he had the gun and brought it to us," Memphis police Lt. Jerry Gwyn said.

    Gwyn said he believes the thief may have accidentally dropped the gun into the toilet. Watch a man walk away with Elvis' gun »

    "Of course, whoever dropped it wouldn't go in there," he said.

    The theft was discovered Friday when a visitor noticed that a glass panel on the case was unfastened and Graceland officials reviewed the video. Graceland operates the museum.

    Presley died at Graceland on August 16, 1977, and is buried in a small garden beside the house.

    Tens of thousands of fans were in Memphis last week for various ceremonies marking the anniversary of Presley's death.

    Considering Elvis died on the toilet, it's really kinda logical that the gun would be found in one. Maybe Elvis' ghost was in the porta potty and he scared the dumb son of a bitch?

    That is a very distinct possibility.
