According to TMZ, one of the police officers who responded to the scene of Whitney Houston’s death allegedly exposed her dead body, pulling back the sheet that was laid over her. In addition to that, the cop made “crass comments” and another police officer has filed a complaint.
Allegedly, the sergeant lifted back the sheet that was covering Houston’s naked, dead body and said:
Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?
But, that’s not all the sergeant was said to have done. The court documents shown below claim that Detective Sergeant Terry Nutall knelt beside Houston’s body, leaned over, and removed the sheet covering her pubic region. He then came close to touching Houston’s dead body while saying she “looked attractive for a woman of her age and current state.”

Harvey Levin of TMZ stated that when people responded to the scene of Michael Jackson’s death, they didn’t realize who it was until about twenty minutes later because he looked like an old, sick man. When the responders realized it was Michael Jackson, they all started looking and commenting because they were shocked. So, he says that the inappropriate cop who supposedly made comments about Whitney may have just been in shock about the situation.
In any event, Sergeant Brian Weir, who made the claim against Nutall, says that when he originally complained about Nutall’s misconduct, he was penalized. The LA Times provided the documents that state he was removed from his position with SWAT and K-9 units. In addition, he was subjected to harassment on several occasions. Weir’s claim states that Nutall’s actions included:
disturbing and/or moving the body of the decedent from the position of death without the permission of the coroner, treating the dead body of the decedent in a way that would outrage ordinary family sensibilities, contaminating potential DNA, and harming the integrity of the scene.
If these allegations are true, we hope justice will be served.
