El desesperado ruego de la novia de Benjamin Keough antes de que el nieto de Elvis Presley se quitara la vida de un disparo en el pecho

El hijo de Lisa Marie Presley, de 27 años, murió en su mansión de Calabasas, California, en la madrugada del domingo

La policía de Los Ángeles confirmó que el hijo de Lisa Marie Presley y nieto de Elvis, Benjamin Keough, de 27 años, se disparó en el torso la madrugada del domingo en su lujosa mansión de Calabasas, California. Los vecinos relataron que escucharon a una mujer gritar en voz alta “No lo hagas ” y luego se escuchó un disparo. Se cree que la joven que se encontraba en lugar era la novia de Keough.

Keough fue encontrado sin vida en su hogar con una herida de bala autoinfligida, de acuerdo a las primeras informaciones. Su madre confirmó la trágica noticia el domingo por la noche por medio de su representante. “Está completamente desconsolada y más que devastada, pero trata de mantenerse fuerte para sus gemelas de 11 años y su hija mayor Riley. Ella adoraba a ese chico. Él era el amor de su vida”, expresó Roger Widynowski en un comunicado enviado a TMZ.

La actriz, de 51 años, tuvo a sus dos hijos mayores, Benjamin y su hermana, la actriz Riley Keough, con su primer esposo, el músico Danny Keough. Se casaron el 3 de octubre de 1988 y se divorciaron en mayo de 1994. También es madre de Finley y Harper, sus gemelas de 11 años, fruto de su relación Michael Lockwood, su cuarto esposo.

“Pude escuchar a alguien hablando muy alto en el patio trasero. Miré hacia afuera y vi a su novia afuera hablando con la policía, y ella estaba bastante histérica diciendo ‘No puedo creerlo’”, relató un vecino en declaraciones al Daily Mail.”Ella seguía diciendo: ‘No puedo creerlo, no puedo creer que haya hecho eso a sí mismo’”.

“Ella dijo: ‘ La familia me va a odiar y me van a culpar’, Creo que se sentía culpable de lo que había sucedido”, añadió el informante al citado medio. “Eso fue alrededor de las 6.30-7am. Estuvieron allí alrededor de una hora hablando”, afirmó.

El vecino dijo que creía que la mujer, a quien habían visto ir y venir de la casa con Benjamin regularmente, era su novia y que habían estado saliendo durante al menos dos años.

Lisa Marie Presley no estaba en la casa familiar cuando su hijo se suicidó.

La Oficina de Homicidios del Condado de Los Ángeles emitió un comunicado el domingo informando que Benjamin Keough “había muerto tras sufrir una herida de bala en la parte superior del torso” el domingo 12 de julio de aproximadamente a las 6:30 AM.

El único nieto de Elvis mantuvo un perfil bajo ante los medios y casi era un desconocido para el público. En los últimos años al igual que su abuelo, decidió dedicarse a la música. En 2009 firmó un contrato discográfico de USD 5 millones con Universal.

De acuerdo a los medios locales, una de las últimas veces que fue visto con su familia fue durante el 40 aniversario de la muerte de Elvis durante una vigilia en Graceland, la famosa mansión del “Rey del Rock” en Memphis, Tennessee, donde vivió hasta su muerte en 1977.

En 2012, Ben apareció en un video musical para la versión de su madre del éxito de 1954 de Elvis, “I Love You Against”. Lisa Marie indicó a los medios en una ocasión que todos sus hijos tenían “un poco” de Elvis, pero que su hijo realmente era la viva imagen de él.

Benjamin Keough bore a strong resemblance to his grandfather, Elvis Presley

A distressed woman was heard screaming ‘don’t do it’ at the home of Elvis Presley’s grandson who died of a gunshot wound in the early hours of Sunday morning, DailyMail.com can reveal.

Police said Lisa Marie Presley’s son Benjamin Keough, 27, died after reportedly shooting himself in the torso at his family’s luxury Calabasas, California mansion.

And a neighbor exclusively told DailyMail.com they heard the residents of the $1.8 million property partying at 1am, before a woman was heard screaming loudly, ‘Don’t do it’, at 3.30am – although the neighbor didn’t hear a gunshot.

Another resident of the street told DailyMail.com that Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department officers arrived at the five-bedroom house in the exclusive Calabasas Park Estates at around 6am.

The neighbor, who asked not to be named, overheard police interviewing a distraught woman, believed to be Benjamin’s girlfriend, in the backyard of the house, which boasts a swimming pool and mountain views.

The resident said Benjamin’s mother, Lisa Marie, was not in the house at the time of the shooting and they had not seen her at the property for several weeks.

But other neighbors saw the Presley family gathering at the house later Sunday, after news of the shocking reported suicide emerged.

Bereaved Lisa Marie’s representative told DailyMail.com: ‘She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.’

Residents of the guard gated Calabasas community – which was cordoned off by police after the shooting on Sunday – said the family kept to themselves.

Another neighbor Alexander Freiberg, 67, who lives across the street from Keough, says the ‘secluded’ and ‘private’ community has been left ‘shocked’ by the death.

‘What happened is a tragedy and it took everybody by surprise. Everybody is shocked, may his soul rest in peace,’ he said.

The Sheriff’s Department issued a statement Sunday saying Elvis’ only grandson had died after suffering ‘one gunshot wound to the upper torso.’

‘Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau detectives are continuing their death investigation of a male White adult in his 20s, who was discovered [at] Alexandra Court, Calabasas, on Sunday, July 12, 2020 at approximately 6:30 a.m,’ the statement said.

‘Detectives have learned that deputies assigned to Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station responded to the location regarding a ‘rescue response’ call.

‘Upon their arrival, they located the victim suffering from one gunshot wound to the upper torso. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.’

Benjamin was the son of musician Danny Keough, who married Lisa Marie in 1988 and divorced her in 1994.

His mother, who has three other children, had previously spoken of her son’s similarity to her dad Elvis, calling their resemblance ‘uncanny’.

‘Ben does look so much like Elvis,’ Lisa Marie said in a 2012 interview with CMT. ‘Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him.’

Elvis’ daughter went on to marry Michael Jackson, Nicholas Cage and finally in 2006 music producer Michael Lockwood, with whom she had twin girls.

Benjamin grew up with his mother and Lockwood in Calabasas.

His mother’s latest marriage ended in an acrimonious divorce. She filed for the split in 2016 and the following year accused Lockwood of possessing hundreds of images of child pornography on his computer and took his daughters into protective custody.

Neighbors said the couple now share custody of the twin girls, 11-year-old Finley and Harper Lockwood.

Benjamin’s sister, actress and model Riley Keough, has embraced the limelight from her famous family, starring in Magic Mike, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Starz TV show The Girlfriend Experience. But little was publicly known about her more reclusive brother.

Riley, 31, told UK newspaper The Guardian that she and Benjamin had a mixed upbringing, split between their mother’s lavish and star-studded lifestyle and their father’s modest living.

‘I grew up very privileged with my mother, but my dad didn’t live like that. And I think experiencing both sides has been helpful,’ Riley said in the 2017 interview. ‘My father had mattresses on the floor of his apartments. He lived in cabins and trailer parks. He just didn’t have much money.

In 2009 rumors swirled that her brother had signed a $5 million record deal with Universal.

‘The music will be nothing like Elvis, nothing like him at all,’ he had said in an interview at the time.

But Peter LoFrumento, Executive Vice President of Universal Music Group, later told People: ‘This story is totally untrue.’

Benjamin’s grandmother Priscilla, 75, married Elvis in 1967 but they divorced six years later. They had only daughter Lisa Marie in 1968. Elvis died just nine years later in 1977 at just 42.

In June last year Lisa Marie opened up about her struggles with ‘opioids and painkillers’ in an essay penned for the forward of the book The United States of Opioids: A Prescription for Liberating a Nation in Pain by Harry Nelson.

She warned of the dangers of prescription drugs as she explained how easily her addiction began after being prescribed painkillers following the birth of her twin daughters in 2008. by theprojectsworld.com/
