The late son of Lisa Marie Presley, Benjamin Keough, was laid to rest alongside his grandfather, Elvis Presley, in Graceland three months after his death.

On Thursday, the official Facebook page for Elvis Presley’s Graceland home in Memphis, TN confirmed the news.

“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 post read.

Keough, 27, passed away on July 12th of this year. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office told Fox News that an autopsy revealed the cause of death. Officials ruled his death as suicide by gunshot wound.

Presley, 52, reacted to her son’s death in a statement sent through her manager.

“She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated. But trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley,” the statement said. “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”

Keough was the son of Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough. Additionally, he is also the grandson of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, and the brother of actress and model Riley Keough.

In contrast to some of Keough’s family members, he mostly lived his life out of the spotlight. However, he does have one acting credit to his name and earned a $5 million record deal in 2009.

Keough was well-known for his striking resemblance to his grandfather, Elvis. Lisa Marie Presley touched on her son’s looks at one point.

“Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage,” she said. “Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny.”

Supposedly, Presley’s song “Storm and Grace” is about Keough, whose middle name is Storm.
