It wasn't a heart condition that killed the King of Rock 'n' Roll, it was chronic constipation. This is the new theory of Elvis Presley's longtime friend Dr. George Nichopoulos, Fox News reported on Wednesday. Nichopoulos, who was with Elvis when he died, included his theory about the icon's death in his book, "The King and Dr. Nick." According to his autopsy, Nichopoulos said, Elvis' colon was 5 to 6 inches in diameter, nearly twice the size of the average person. It was also 8 to 9 feet long, compared with the normal 4 to 5 feet.
