August 11 - With Friends Like This ...

The 'news magazine' Globe has Elvis on the cover and boosts about an interview with Joe Esposito. In it, Joe talks in detail about why the body was moved before the police investigation, and why all the medication suddenly disappeared. The "best friend" also comments on Elvis's financial situation: "he was broke". 

On Facebook, Marty Lacker posted this reply: 
"Joe Espositio as the King's Best Friend? He's gonna have to fight Klein and Schilling for that role. If Elvis had a Best Friend it was Billy Smith. The Best Friend claim by all three is self claimed, neither Elvis nor the rest of us thought so.
