The same thing happen to Elvis Presley-a photo of him in his coffin. The National Enquire published the Presley photo in 1977.

Well, I can see the family may have to move her just like Elvis had to be moved. The enquirer claims she was buried with $500,000 worth of jewelry. Someone will have to pay for a guard 24/7 or some idiots will attempt to rob the grave. How sad. RIP Whitney.

You see what the family should have done is just had an open casket at the service and let the TV camera zoom in and show the world. Folks are curious and money hungry so by not opening the casket and letting folks see her opened up a playground for folks to sneak and take a picture of her with their cell phones and then sell it. I don't know what the big secret was. Let the folks see her.

Could have been one of her own family members. Who knows, they could have all be in on it for the cash.

The picture did not look bad at all. She looked good. The family could have avoided this by letting casket be open during the funeral and letting the world see her. Then the picture would have been worthless to those trying to make money off of it.

No they did not. Only to close friends and family.

I have to agree.

She looked beautiful.

A family with so many years experience in the spotlight should anticipate some jerk would snap an unauthorized photo & sell it. Allowing an 'official' photo to be released would have be the wise choice.

What's really sad the lowered the flag for her funeral, but a service person who dies in battle, doesn't get that?
Something is wrong with that picture?
