Whitney Houston - Cissy Houston Demands Lie Detector Tests Over Whitney Casket Photo

Cissy Houston is understandably furious at the National Inquirer after they printed a photo of her daughter Whitney Houston 's open casket as the front cover of their latest issue, with My Fox Chicago reporting that she's going as far to issue a lie detector test on anyone she thinks may have been responsible for the photograph.
The National Enquirer posted the picture of Houston earlier this week, causing outrage from other media outlets and fans on Twitter of the deceased star. Yet the magazine's publisher Mary Beth Wright told Fox News "I thought it was beautiful." The photo showed Houston dead in a gold casket with the headline "Whitney: The Last Photo!" The publication didn't have a credit for the photograph and have been refusing details on who might've taken it. It's thought that they'd have paid close to a six-figure sum to attain the picture.
Cissy is keen to get to the bottom of it however, as you might well expect, and has reportedly asked for anyone who possibly could have taken the photo, including family members, close friends and those from the funeral home staff to take a lie-detector test. The magazine has history of this sort of thing; in 1977 they published a photo of Elvis Presley in his coffin and also published a picture of John Lennon after his death in 1980.
