Funeral Home Owner Says She Knows Who Took Whitney Houston Coffin Photo
The woman who arranged Whitney Houston's lavish funeral says she knows who leaked the now-notorious picture to the National Enquirer.
INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney asked Whigham, "Has your investigation been able to determine who took that photograph?"
"Absolutely," replied Whigham.
"So you know 100% who took that photo?" said McInerney.
"Absolutely," Whigham stated.
But Carolyn Whigham, owner of the Whigham Funeral Home says she's keeping the name to herself, for now. And she insists it wasn't anyone at her family-run funeral home.
McInerney asked, "Did you take the photo?"
"Absolutely not. Nor anyone on my staff. Absolutely not. We did not take the photograph," said Whigham.
The funeral home says Houston's body was kept in one room at all times except for the private viewing. They also say that Whitney Houston's family hired their own private security. That security guarded the room 24 hours a day. They even slept at the funeral home.
She says the identity of whoever leaked the photo will be revealed soon. In the meantime, she has this message for the culprit.
"What do you have to say to that person?" asked McInerney.
"Shame on you," said Whigham.
Mrs. Whigham is so upset about accusations that she was responsible for the photo she asked her pastor and other leading clergymen and family members to join her at a press conference.
"Whigham Funeral Home is not responsible and had no role in this shameful betrayal," said a spokeman at the press conference.
Meanwhile, more disturbing photos have been published by the National Enquirer. They reportedly show Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina smoking marijuana from a bong. The photos were taken as she partied with friends a year ago.
There were fireworks on The View today as guest Nancy Grace was taken to task for implying Whitney Houston was murdered.
Barbara Walters read this quote to Grace: " 'We do not know who gave her her drugs and alcohol, and who let her slip or pushed her underneath the water.' Do you still think she may have been pushed?"
Grace now admits she doesn't really think Houston was deliberately drowned.
"From what I believe, I don't think she was pushed underwater," said Grace.
