(Radio.com) Next August will mark 40 years since Elvis Presley died of what coroners officially ruled a heart attack. But now his stepbrother has written a new book claiming there's a different story.

David E. Stanley will soon release My Brother Elvis in which he details his time living at Graceland and working for the King. Stanley's mother married Elvis' widowed father in 1960, and at only age four he moved into the famed estate.

In his book, Stanley writes about his last meeting with Elvis. It occurred on August 14, just two days before he died. At the time, Elvis said he would be going away for a few days and told Stanley when they next saw each other he would be "on a higher plane."

When he learned Elvis died, Stanley believed he had killed himself using pills and other drugs. Although emergency responders found no such evidence when they came to Graceland, Stanley claims he removed several pill bottles and syringes surrounding Elvis' dead body before anyone else discovered it. He stuffed everything in his pockets. Read more here.
