Homicide

Owner of Elvis-themed Graceland Too museum in Mississippi dies 2 days after shooting intruder

The owner of a private Elvis Presley museum in Mississippi has died, two days after authorities say he shot and killed a man who forced his way into the attraction.

Marshall County Coroner James Richard Anderson says 71-year-old Paul MacLeod was found slumped in a chair on his porch early Thursday. Anderson says it appears he died of natural causes but an autopsy will be performed. The Graceland Too museum is in Holly Springs, south of Memphis. It also was MacLeod's home.

His death comes two days after police say MacLeod killed 28-year-old Dwight Taylor at the museum. Police questioned and released MacLeod. No charges had been filed.

MacLeod's attorney, Phillip Knecht, says Taylor forced his way inside, demanding money. He says the two fought before the shooting.
