Officer allegedly peeked at singer's naked corpse in hotel room.
A former Beverly Hills SWAT sergeant has accused his then fellow officer of leering at Whitney Houston's body and making "inappropriate comments" while they were at the scene of her death at the local Hilton Hotel, reports the Los Angeles Times.
According to a claim Sgt. Brian Weir filed, Det. Sgt. Terry Nuttall lifted the sheet covering Houston's naked body "to an area below the pubic region" and said things like, "Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?" and that she "looked attractive for a woman of her age and current state."
The disturbing behavior "would outrage ordinary family sensibilities," it states in the claim. It also contaminated "potential DNA" and harmed "the integrity of the scene."
Houston had been found in the bathtub of her hotel room Feb. 11, 2012. An autopsy report described the cause of death as drowning with heart disease and cocaine as contributing factors.
Weir also alleges that after he initially reported the misconduct, he was retaliated against — removed from his coveted position in the SWAT and K-9 units, denied promotions and overtime, and ostracized and harassed.
