As we reported, Lisa Marie Presley's son died on July 12, at the age of 27, after what the L.A. County Coroner's office called a self-inflicted 'intraoral shotgun wound.'

Priscilla continued, "Then, I think of my daughter and the pain she is going through as she was a doting mother. Ben’s father, Danny, who is completely lost, as Ben was his only son. Riley, so loving and so close to him; Harper and Finley, who absolutely adored Ben. Navarone, who struggles deeply with loss and death. Rest In Peace Ben, you were loved. ❤️"
