On February 11, after it became public that Whitney had died, the Beverly Hills Police Department and the Beverly Hilton Hotel were said to have taken every precaution possible to ensure that Houston’s body would be handled in the most professional and private way. True to this ethos, the Beverly Hilton swiftly fired staffers who gave interviews or comments about Houston’s sudden demise, which was strictly forbidden.
And still, surveillance video shows that someone took a picture of Houston in the body bag as she lay on the gurney. Days later, those pictures hit the Internet and now the Houston family is requesting that law enforcement work to identify that individual.
Whitney’s sister-in-law, Pat, spoke with cops that night when she died and with members of the coroner staff. They told her they were going to ensure that no one was going to take a picture of her body on the gurney. The family continues to be so grateful to the Beverly Hills Police Department for everything they have done and the professionalism they have exhibited during the aftermath of Whitney’s death. It was naturally heartbreaking to the family when the photo was published, but they trust that the person who took it will ultimately be held accountable. … They need and deserve to know who took the pictures, and if the person profited from it, according to RadarOnline’s source.
