Cissy Houston has reportedly asked the police to launch an investigation into the leaking of photos of her daughter Whitney's body after her death.
The bereaved soul singer is said to be furious that several media outlets have published photos of Whitney's body being wheeled out on a gurney shortly after she was found dead at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
According to RadarOnline.com, there is surveillance footage of the person taking the gurney photo, and Cissy has asked the police to investigate who the culprit is. The police have in turn assured her that they will look into the matter after the cause of Whitney's death has been determined.
"[The family] need and deserve to know who took the pictures, and if the person profited from it," a source close to the situation told the website.
Last week, the National Enquirer shocked the world when they published a photo of Whitney's body laying in her casket before she was buried last weekend.
