After Houston’s corpse was found in a hotel bathtub last year, a police sergeant pulled the sheet covering her naked body ‘below the pubic region’ and commented on her looks, ex-SWAT officer Brian Weir says in a lawsuit claim. Weir says he suffered professionally after he complained about the incident.
“Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?” the sergeant allegedly said after lifting a sheet covering Houston’s corpse.
The sergeant knelt beside Houston to remove the sheet “to an area below the pubic region,” and also said she “looked attractive for a woman of her age and current state,” the legal claim filed by ex-SWAT officer Brian Weir and obtained by the Los Angeles Times states.
Weir filed his claim for damages against the police department and the city alleging that he was retaliated against after he reported the misconduct.
He said the sergeant acted with reckless disregard for the integrity of the potential crime scene and should have known his behavior “would outrage ordinary family sensibilities.”
Weir said that after he complained to his superiors, he was removed from the city’s elite SWAT and K-9 units, denied promotions and training and relieved of supervisory duties.
And we all know that Whitney Houston was discovered face down in a bathtub in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Feb. 11, 2012.
