November 16 - Chief ME Investigator in Elvis Presley's Death Died

It would be one of the biggest cases to go through the Shelby County Medical Examiner's office, but it was one Dan Warlick handled with aplomb, said Dr. Jerry Francisco, his former boss. Warlick was the chief investigator for the medical examiner when on August 16, 1977, rock 'n' roll legend Elvis Presley died. Shortly thereafter, Warlick would leave to become an attorney. He died on November 16 at his home in Nashville. Warlick was 69.

"Certainly there was a tremendous level of interest worldwide and that always causes a problem because you have to keep up with things," said Francisco, the medical examiner when Presley died.

But Warlick, who worked extensively with law enforcement at Graceland, handled the investigation into the death of one of the world's greatest entertainers with confidence, said Francisco, who has since retired. "Dan never got rattled," he said.
