Elvis was alive and in Kalamazoo, MI in 1988. Kelly Burgess was a seasoned reporter who had previously worked for the Detroit News paper and more recently had written columns for national magazines.
She did meet Elvis face to face in August, 1988 in Kalamazoo. This video is part 1 of my two part video of her entire interview in which she details the how, when, where, who and why of her visit to Kalamazoo. Please do view my part two of this interview which I plan to have available very shortly.
