A police officer has been accused of uncovering Whitney Houston's naked body and making inappropriate comments in the investigation following the singer's fatal overdose last year.

Sky News reports Beverly Hill police sergeant Terry Nutall is claimed to have lifted a sheet covering the late star's body in the aftermath of her death, remarking "Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?"

Houston was found dead in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel on February 11, 2012. It's alleged Nutall arrived on the scene with "no legitimate law enforcement inquiry, investigative, or other proper and legal purpose."

He then "knelt beside and leaned over the decedent, removed the sheet and/or other covering from the body... to an area below the pubic region," according to a claim by his former supervisor Brian Weir, who says he was removed from his position as head of the department’s SWAT team for reporting the alleged misconduct.

A Beverley Hills police representative has responded that "We stand behind the investigation 100 percent, including the conclusion from the coroner’s office."
