Casey Kasem still not buried a month after his death, body remains in funeral home

By Gina DiFalco,

A rep for one of Casey Kasem’s kids, Kerri Kasem, says the legendary radio show host’s body remains at the funeral home in Tacoma, Washington a month after his death.

His daughter’s rep Danny Deraney, also said the family hopes he will be buried in Glendale, Calif. at Forest Lawn cemetery.

According to the Associated Press, Kasem’s wife, Jean Kasem, whom his adult children heavily feuded with in the months leading up to his death, has the rights to his body.

It seems the feud hasn’t stopped even after Kasem’s death, as Jean told TMZ about his kids last month, "Their impatience for Casey to die was obvious when they killed him and now their impatience to collect on the life insurance is even more telling."

However, Extra reports Jean is under investigation for elder abuse for taking a then-ailing Kasem to Washington state without telling anyone.

A private memorial service was held about a week after his death, which was attended by over 200 people, not including Jean Kasem or her daughter with the late American Top 40 host, Liberty.
