Whitney Houston’s family is outraged over the release of a photo of the deceased singer in her casket, said TMZ.com. The National Enquirer acquired the photo from an unknown source and printed it on the cover of its March 5 issue. Houston’s mother, gospel singer Cissy Houston, is said to be devastated by publication of the photo, and struggling mightily to come to terms with her daughter’s tragic death. Sources say Cissy is planning to revisit Room 434 at the Beverly Hilton hotel, where Whitney was found dead in the bathtub on Feb. 11, in hopes of establishing a spiritual connection with her daughter. “Cissy won’t be at peace until she gets closure,” said a friend.
