Body guard star Whitney Houston’s grave will now have security guards for a round-the-clock vigil of the grave as robbers may target $500,000 gemstones and jewelry she was buried with according to the family sources. But as posting a security guard will fix the problem in the short-term, Whitney’s family plans to eventually have her casket encased in cement to prevent access to robbers.
All of us are aware that ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer died on February 11 at the age of 48, and she is buried in a gold lined casket worth upwards of $15000, and wearing a diamond brooch and earrings.
Though the jewelry may have been a way to pay tribute to this precious and legendary singer but the family was aware that grave-robbers could target the spot from the start. It was because of this reason that after a huge influx of fans flocked to the site after Whitney’s February 19 funeral, the cemetery was closed to the general public.
Some of the important celebrities present at Whitney’s funeral included her mentor Clive Davis, her Bodyguard co-star Kevin Costner and friends Oprah Winfrey and Mariah Carey. On February 11, the star was found dead in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills Hotel suite, with the cause of death confirmed as ‘accidental drowning’ one month later.
