The owner of the Newark, N.J., funeral home that handled services for Whitney Houston says the home had nothing to do with a photograph that surfaced showing Whitney’s body in an open casket.
But Carolyn Whigham of Whigham Funeral Home and two pastors say they do know who took the photo that ran in the National Enquirer. They just aren’t identifying the person and say that’s up to the Houston family.
Whigham told reporters on Thursday that her funeral home “had no role in this shameful betrayal.” She was responding to what she says are claims that either she or her employees were involved.
Whitney Houston, 48, died Feb. 11 in California. Whigham says she determined the photo was taken Feb. 17, a day before the funeral.
