Whitney Houston funeral home ‘know person behind casket photo’
Washington: The owners of the funeral home that handled the services for Whitney Houston say that they know who took the infamous photo of the singer in an open casket that ran in the National Enquirer.
However, Carolyn Whigham of New Jersey’s Whigham Funeral Home and two pastors say that they aren’t identifying the person and that is up to the Houston family. Defending Whigham, the Reverend Ronald Slaughter of nearby St James AME Church said Thursday the funeral home “had no role in this shameful betrayal”, a news channel has reported.
The 48-year-old Houston died February 11 in the Beverly Hills Hilton. Whigham says she determined the photo was taken February 17, a day before the funeral.
