Daughter claims Casey Kasem’s body remains at local morgue one month after his death
LOS ANGELES, Calif — One month after the death of legendary radio host Casey Kasem, a spokesman for Kasem’s daughter says Kasem’s body remains unburied at a morgue in Washington State.
“In case your [sic] wondering, today is the 1 month anniversary of Casey Kasem’s death. He has not been buried,” tweeted spokesman Danny Deraney.
Kasem died June 15th at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Gig Harbor after a very public fight between his children and his second wife over his care.
Kasem’s wife, Jean, has the rights to his body. The rest of the family held a memorial service last month which Jean did not attend.
Recently during an appearance on ABC’s The View, daughter Kerri Kasem said her dad had asked to be buried at a cemetery in Los Angeles.
