(Provo-AP) -- Funeral services for the Osmond family matriarch will be on Saturday amid heightened security.
Olive Osmond died Sunday at age 79 of complications from a massive stroke she suffered more than two years ago.
But rumors are swirling of an offer to pay a 30-thousand dollar bounty for a photograph of Osmond in her casket surrounded by her children. That has family members upset and a spokesman says they've had to boost security at the services because of the rumor.
The spokesman says purses will not be allowed during a viewing Friday night and undercover security at the funeral will keep an eye out for recording devices and cameras.
Funeral services are scheduled for Saturday at 11 a-m at the Provo Oak Hills Stake Center.
