Radio Star Casey Kasem’s Remains Moved From Funeral Home Against Children’s Wishes

Photo by Amanda Edwards/Getty ImagesThings have moved from the strange to the bizarre in the case of radio star Casey Kasem’s body. He died back on June 15th. And not only has he not been buried but no one knows where his body is in July. “The remains of radio personality Casey Kasem have been moved from a Washington state funeral home, against the wishes of three of his adult children, a spokesman for the siblings said on Friday.Kasem, the former host of the syndicated program “American Top 40″ who died on June 15 at age 82, had been the focus of a dispute between his three children from his first marriage and his second wife, Jean Kasem.They said she had prevented them from visiting him as he suffered from Lewy body dementia, a malady with symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease.As his health deteriorated, a Los Angeles judge sided with the children and permitted them to withhold food, hydration and his usual medication as they chose comfort-oriented, end-of-life care at a Washington state hospital.Since then, Kasem’s children Kerri, Julie and Mike have learned his body was removed from Gaffney Funeral Home in Tacoma, Washington, against their wishes, said Danny Deraney, a spokesman for the siblings. The three believe Jean Kasem, who had legal rights over the body, arranged to have it moved but they do not know where it is, Deraney said.” http://nr.news-republic.com/Web/ArticleWeb.aspx?regionid=1&articleid=26163864&m=d
