There are certain things you don’t say around dead bodies as a matter of respect. You don’t bring up the negative things they did in life. You don’t talk about the things they’ll miss out on the future, and you sure as hell don’t make sexual comments about the corpse. If new allegations are to be believed, however, one of the police officers on the scene after Whitney Houston died may have done exactly that last no-no and added some additional creepiness to top it off.
According to TMZ, a member of the Beverly Hills Police Department recently went to the California Labor Department and complained about another officer who allegedly looked underneath the sheet covering Houston’s naked body and said, “Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?” Someone close to the singer was reportedly in the room at the time and was none too pleased with the comment, but nothing ever came of the matter for more than a year and a half before the complaint was recently filed.
The Beverly Hills Police Department hasn’t spoken on the record about the alleged incident, but the department is saying no official complaint was ever filed with the BHPD. Considering how long ago it all happened, it certainly seems a little suspicious, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not true. After all, this is an oddly specific story to just make up.
Since Whitney’s tragic death at the age of forty-eight, her star status hasn’t dimmed in the slightest. In fact, members of her family continue to make news, whether they’re famous in their own right or not. Sadly, nothing can ever replace the starlet or bring her back, but for her sake, I truly hope this matter is dealt with quickly and justly internally so her fans can get back to remembering her beautiful voice and not thinking about disgusting trash like this.
