THIS chilling picture is on the front cover this week’s National Enquirer.
It’s singer Whitney Houston in an open casket at the Whigham Funeral Home in New Jersey before her burial last weekend.
According to the Boyculture blog, the mag “is on sale on newsstands completely out in the open”.
Whitney was found dead in the bath of her Beverly Hills hotel room on February 11. She was 48 years old.
Meanwhile, the cemetery Houston was laid to rest has been closed to the public indefinitely.
Officials at the Fairview Cemetery in New Jersey made the decision following a series of traffic problems resulting from grieving fans wanting to pay their respects to the singer, who was buried there on Sunday.
Police Captain Cliff Auchter said: “It’s a private property, and it’s up to them to make that decision. It was done in light of the overcrowding that occurred.
“The cemetery is a maze of very small roads, so if two cars come face to face, you have a Mexican standoff.”
Those with relatives buried in the cemetery will not be affected by the ban, and a round-the-clock police presence will remain in place for the forseeable future.
Capt. Aucher added: “I don’t have any idea as to when that will change. It’s being evaluated day to day [by the cemetery].”
Despite the traffic problems, there have been no incidents at the site.
He added: “It’s been relatively quiet.”
