They were bound to be found out and now according to sources the Houston family has been told who the individual who took the photo that was passed onto the National Enquirer is.
Says nj.com: Carolyn Whigham of Whigham Funeral Home and two pastors say they do know who took the photo, which was published by the National Enquirer. They just aren’t identifying the person and say that’s up to the Houston family.
In the interim, Ms Whigham is denying any involvement with the photo actually being leaked and is remaining adamant that the funeral home or its employees released said offending images. In fact judging from the video below she is clearly upset with the Houston family who have not gone out of their way to state that the Whigham family are not being viewed as the source of the leak.
The photo showed Houston wearing a purple dress with her hair pulled back and sparkly earrings. It ran under the headline “Whitney: The Last Photo!” with the issue’s cover captions detailing that she was buried in “in her favorite purple dress,” gold slippers and “jewelry worth $500,000.”
Interestingly the funeral home’s investigation revealed that the picture was taken on Feb. 17, a day before services for the late singer, who died in Los Angeles on Feb. 11. Of note, Ms Whigham has declined to detail how the the funeral home came to those findings.
It will be interesting to see if there will be pressure applied on the Houston family to publicly reveal who actually took the photo but clues might come in the offing if there are any sudden resignations/firings at the Whigham funeral home. What is also noteworthy though is how the Funeral home has now been able to identify the perpetrator and the time when the photos were taken, which leads one to wonder how long has it been since the Funeral home has known this information and why furthermore the Houston clan has done an about face and not sought to publicly identify the identity of the leaker or exonerate the funeral home with any involvement? Unless of course the leaker is a Houston family or friend insider….
