In addition to flowers gracing the front lawn and entry gate by fans who are paying their tributes, the camera feeds have been shut down which were facing the house, as the preparations on the lawn continue. 

With the cause of death still deferred awaiting a toxicology report, Lisa, the only child of Elvis Presley, died of a cardiac arrest on January 12 in the hospital. She was discovered unconscious by the housekeeper in her Calabasas' home. She was administered CPR by her Ex-husband Danny Keough, before being rushed to the hospital. Many reports also stated that she was given Epehrine, a life-saving drug, at the scene by paramedics.

EMTs arriving at her home managed to revive her and she regained a pulse, but she was brain dead on arrival at the hospital, the same outlet reported on Friday. She then suffered a second attack in the hospital and died. 

Her mother Priscilla, 77, who was by her bedside shared the news first, "It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa has left us," Priscilla Presley said in a statement on Thursday. Keough is the father of her actress daughter Riley, 33, and son Benjamin, who took his own life in July 2020 aged 27. His death is reported to have deeply disturbed Lisa and she was unable to cope with the loss.
