Whitney Houston Funeral

Casket Under LOCKDOWN

Until Burial

2/18/2012 2:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The casket of Whitney Houston.
The casket of Whitney Houston will be heavily guarded until the burial Sunday morning, with a whopping 10 security guards tasked with keeping watch on it ... TMZ has learned. 

According to our sources, the casket will be kept at the cemetery until tomorrow's burial ... but will be well-protected until then.

We're told the family will get an opportunity to see Whitney one more time between now and tomorrow morning.  

Today's funeral service featured touching testimonials by Kevin Costner and Clive Davis, among others.

It is very sad to say that with an economy such as this and many people are needy and greedy, there have already been pictures taken of Whitney Houston at rest as well as from the initial scene of the incident that will surface and be sold to the highest bidders. Even in life she was unable to stop her picture from being taken and sold for a price. Just wait! There have been pictures on the internet of Michael Jackson's otopsy and him lying on the hospital bed in death. Very sad.

I'm sure all those guards were for YOUR benefit, TMZ. The family doesn't want you flipping open the casket and snapping pictures.

If it wasn't under lockdown, TMZ would be trying to open it to get the first picture.
