HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. (WTVA) — Fans of Graceland Too in Holly Springs had one last chance to visit the Elvis Presley tourist attraction Tuesday.

It's owner, Paul MacLeod, died from a heart attack last month just days after shooting and killing a person for what's being described as a home invasion.

Tuesday, the house was open one last time for fans to take a tour, learn a little bit about Paul MacLeod and share memories of their respects to Elvis.

MacLeod's attorney says more than 500 Elvis enthusiasts visited.

"It's so heart warming to me that other people besides myself knew and loved Paul," said Marie Underwood, a Paul MacLeod fan. "I hope this town makes this a part of their heritage. They should make a Paul MacLeod Day because I'd come back every year. Paul would love it."

Supporters also held a celebration to honor the owner's life.

All the money from Tuesday's event will go toward MacLeod's funeral and estate costs.

His attorney hopes the city will preserve the home.
