Funeral Home Owner Denies Leaking Whitney Houston Coffin Photo

Carolyn  Whigham, the owner of  Whigham funeral home is denying in wrong doing in the Whitney Houston death photo leak. Earlier this week a picture of Houston in her coffin appeared on the cover of the National Enquirer and Whigham is adamant that her family-owned and operated business had no hand in selling that photo.

Whigham told the Daily News, “We did not take that photo. We did not sell the photo. We would never do  something like that. Whitney was a friend. “I’m the one who flew to Los Angeles  and got Whitney from the coroner’s office. I did everything to protect her.”

She also stated that although Houston’s family doesn’t hold the funeral home responsible, she and her staff have received a number of threats from Whitney’s fans that do blame the funeral home for the leak.

“One email said that if the person owned a dog, and the dog died, they would  not come to my funeral home,” she said with sadness. “I’m worried about my  employees, worried about me. I’ve been in business since 1943. This is my name,  my character. Honestly, this is my life’s work. We would never do something like  this.”

Whitney was laid to rest last Saturday after she was found dead a week earlier at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Coroner’s office is awaiting toxocology reports before releasing their final results.
