Problems Have Arisen That Need To Be Addressed Lest The Worst Happens
This is a follow up to the February 22, 2012 Judiciary Report article "National Enquirer Publishes Whitney Houston Coffin And Death Photos." In the article the Judiciary Report stated, "The tabloid is reporting she was buried in $500,000 worth of jewelry, which I hope is not true, as it will attract human vultures to her grave and the lawful liquidation of said baubles could better serve the living, such as her child. Houston's estate is currently up in the air and will face extensive legal wrangling to extract all that is owed to her family and creditors...Hopefully her grave will remain undisturbed."
Two days later, on February 24, 2012, Drudge Report ran the Daily Star headline "Grave Robbers" regarding Houston. The newspaper in London printed, "WHITNEY Houston has her own 24-hour armed bodyguard to protect her jewellery-filled gold coffin from grave robbers. Fears that ghouls will plunder her resting place were triggered after it was revealed she was buried wearing up to £300,000 of jewels and designer clothes."

Regrettably, if Whitney Houston's resting place is to remain undisturbed for a long period of time, she will have to be exhumed, thanks to the National Enquirer tabloid newspaper. Due to the fact they obtained a photo of Houston in her coffin, where the tabloid states she is allegedly wearing $500,000 in jewelry, as shown in the photo above, they have callously made her a massive target for grave robbers and jewel thieves all over the world, who can make an easy score for a few hours work, resorting to bribery if necessary. The fact that the jewelry belonged to Houston can make it even more valuable to a creepy collector on the black market, willing to do a discreet transaction.
Sadly, greed and not conscience will takeover in attempts to dig up the late star to steal the jewels they allege she was buried wearing. The cost of guarding her grave with round the clock security, will easily and quickly surpass the value of the jewels as well. If the family leaves her grave as it stands, it will not remain undisturbed, as someone will find a way to steal the jewelry and maybe even substitute them with fakes. Even if the Houston family states the story is a lie, people will still try. This means her grave will be disturbed.
The Houston estate can exhume her body and that of her late dad, who she is buried next to and move them into a secure New Jersey mausoleum. They need to so something, as they need to avoid the trauma of having someone defile and disturb their loved one's grave. She should not be buried with anything of financial value. Remove the temptation from grave robbers and others thieves.
Furthermore, when hearing about stories regarding theft, my dad sometimes says in reference to wealth, "You can't take it with you." Therefore, burying Houston in jewelry is in vain. The estate really should sue the National Enquirer for the damage the tabloid has caused. They did not have to print that tidbit about the jewelry, whether it is true or not. They had the morbid shock value they desired with the casket picture alone. They should have thought their actions through regarding the jewelry blurb and the serious trauma it could create for the family.
Whitney Grave Robbers
24th February 2012 - WHITNEY Houston has her own 24-hour armed bodyguard to protect her jewellery-filled gold coffin from grave robbers. Fears that ghouls will plunder her resting place were triggered after it was revealed she was buried wearing up to £300,000 of jewels and designer clothes.
The singer, who died a fortnight ago in her LA hotel room after a drugs and booze binge, lies in a gold-lined coffin worth tens of thousands of pounds. She is draped in a purple gown and also wears a diamond brooch and earrings and a pair of glittering gold slippers. But the treasure-filled casket has caused alarm among the star’s family and friends. And now minders have been ordered to watch over her grave-side at Fairview Cemetery in Newark, New Jersey.
A source said last night: “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 fact she was buried with such valuable jewellery is just an invitation to sickos.
“It’s ironic that Whitney, who was most famous for The Bodyguard movie when she was alive, has to have bodyguards even in death.” Armed security men around Whitney’s final resting place have already turned away busloads of fans who have made “pilgrimages” to her grave...
