Three months after Benjamin Keough’s death, he has been laid to rest at Graceland beside grandfather Elvis Presley and several other family members.

In a Friday post, Graceland’s official Facebook account confirmed the burial, “Benjamin Storm Presley Keough was laid to rest in the Meditation Garden at Graceland with his family including his grandfather, Elvis Presley, great-grandmother, Gladys Presley, great-grandfather, Vernon Presley and great-great-grandmother, Minnie Mae Presley.”

The 27-year-old died from an “intraoral shotgun wound,” the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed in July. He died by suicide.

Benjamin Keough is one of the four children of Elvis Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley. His older sister is Danielle Riley Keough, an actress, and model and two younger half-sisters (fraternal twins) are Harper Vivienne Ann and Finley Aaron Love.

The death of her son left Lisa Marie “entirely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life” her manager, Roger Widynowski released a statement.
