Whitney Houston’s Grave Heavily Guarded


Days after the controversial photo of Whitney Houston in her open casket hit the front page of the National Enquirer, the singer’s burial site is now reportedly being watched over by armed guards.

Fears that grave robbers would be after Houston’s reported $500,000-worth of jewelry and gold-lined coffin is what prompted the singer’s family to post armed guards.

Houston who was found dead in her Los Angeles hotel on February 11 was pictured in her casket dressed in a purple gown and wearing a diamond brooch and earrings and a pair of glittering gold slippers.

The gold casket has also caused concern that grave robbers may want to steal the coffin itself.

A source was reported to have said that there is “a very genuine fear that her coffin will be targeted by grave robbers”.

“It would be hard for them to actually dig her casket up, but that won’t stop psychotic fans or people who think it could make them money,” the source added.

Houston was buried on Sunday in a private ceremony at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey.

Meanwhile, the publisher of the National Enquirer has defended running the photo of Whitney Houston’s body in her casket on the magazine’s front cover.

“I thought it was beautiful,” Mary Beth Wright told Fox News.
