The Owner of the Newark funeral home that handled Whitney Houston's services & body is denying she helped the "National Enquirer" get a photo of Whitney Houston lying in her casket.

Whigham Funeral Home owner Carolyn Whigham says she knows who took the controversial photo, but she's saying it's up to Whitney Houston's family to come forward with the name of that person...implying someone in the family took & leaked the picture. Whigham said she's getting threatening e-mails and she wants an apology from the people responsible for suggesting she or anyone of her staff took the picture and sold it to the "National Enquirer" for a very substantial amount of money.

The photo of Whitney appeared on the front page of the "National Enquirer" a few days after her burial. Many felt the photo was a huge invasion of privacy.
