Whitney Houston’s cause of death is still unknown, but her body is being heavily guarded tonight. After leaving the New Hope Baptist Church this afternoon, her gold casket was brought back to the funeral home before it was dropped off at the cemetery for Sunday’s burial.
According to TMZ, “the casket will be kept at the cemetery until tomorrow’s burial … but will be well-protected [by 10 security guards].” The site also adds that the family will get to view the body one last time before it’s secured in its final resting place, next to Whitney’s father, John.
Saturday’s funeral (or “homegoing service,” as it was called) was tasteful and very emotional. Listening to all of the stories that friends and family shared was moving for fans all over the world. Many are continuing to tune in to extended coverage and will be watching on Sunday as friends and family gather once more to lay Whitney Houston to rest.
