• Possible Police Misconduct Surrounding Whitney Houston’s Death


    BEVERLY HILLS (CNS) – A former Beverly Hills police SWAT supervisor claims he lost his job after reporting a colleague for removing a sheet from atop Whitney Houston’s naked body and making inappropriate comments at the scene of her death in 2012.

    A claim filed last week by police Sgt. Brian Weir alleges that then-Det. Sgt. Terry Nutall disturbed the scene after Houston’s death, NBC4 reported.

    Weir’s claim is the precursor to a civil lawsuit, which is expected to be filed in the next 30 days, according to NBC4.

    Despite having “no legitimate law enforcement … or other proper and legal purpose,” according to the claim reported by NBC4, Nutall “knelt beside and leaned over the decedent, removed the sheet and/or other covering from the body … to an area below the pubic region.”

    Nutall allegedly then made “inappropriate comments … that the decedent ‘looked attractive for a woman of her age and current state,’” according to Weir. “Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?” Nutall is alleged to have said.

    Lt. Lincoln Hoshino disputed the allegations, saying that Nutall, who has since been promoted to lieutenant, had a legitimate reason for being at the scene. Hoshino said the police department was unaware of any inappropriate conduct.

    The 48-year-old singer-actress drowned in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton on Feb. 11, just hours before a pre-Grammy Awards party thrown at the hotel by her mentor, Clive Davis. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office determined cocaine use and heart disease contributed to her death, with evidence that she used cocaine shortly before slipping under the water in the tub.
