Casey Kasem's body has gone missing

The remains of late DJ and voice actor Casey Kasem have gone missing.

According to the Associated Press, the body’s whereabouts were called into question when Scott Winship, lawyer for the deceased’s daughter Kerri Kasem, went to deliver a temporary restraining order to the Tacoma, Wash., funeral home where Kasem’s body was being held.

The order was granted by Judge Ronald Culpepper, and was meant to prevent the deceased’s wife, Jean Kasem, from cremating Kasem’s remains while Kerri Kasem sought authorization to seek an autopsy on the body. When Winship went to deliver the order to Gaffney Funeral Home & Cremation Services, he was informed that the remains were no longer in their care.

“I cannot discuss the actual arrangements themselves, but he’s no longer in our care,” funeral director Tim Grant told the Associated Press.

A hearing for the autopsy petition was scheduled for July 25.

Casey Kasem found in Washington state

Casey Kasem was found in Washington state on Thursday, ending a three-day search for the ailing radio host amid a dispute between his wife and children. His condition was not immediately known, according to The Associated Press.

On Monday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy ordered adult protective services and court investigators to try to locate Kasem, who suffers from a form of dementia called Lewy Body Disease. His children believed he had been moved to an Indian reservation by his wife of 34 years, Jean Kasem. The search was ordered when Jean’s attorney admitted he did not know the whereabouts of the former Top 40 host.

Jean and three of Kasem’s children from a previous marriage have been locked in a tense battle over the care the 82-year-old receives; Jean has even barred the children from seeing their father. She had been in control of her husband’s medical care until Monday, when the judge granted temporary conservatorship to Kasem’s daughter, Kerri.

“We are grateful to the local authorities for finding my dad,” Kerri Kasem wrote in a statement. “We are one step closer to bringing him home [to Los Angeles].” READ FULL STORY
