Newark - The owner of a funeral home that handled services for Whitney Houston says the home had nothing to do with a photograph that surfaced showing the singer'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 The Star-Ledger of Newark newspaper on Thursday her New Jersey 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.
The 48-year-old Houston died February 11 in California. Whigham says she determined the photo was taken February 17, a day before the funeral.
