So remember the other day when we all found out Casey Kasem‘s body was still sitting in a funeral home after he’s been dead for over a month? It’s missing now. And by missing I mean stolen by his widow and smuggled into Canada because his kids requested an autopsy, so you know, nothing suspicious here. NY Daily News reports:

In an exclusive interview with the Daily News, Kerri said the temporary restraining order that a Washington state judge granted her on Wednesday forbidding movement or burial of the remains was too late.
“My stepmother is doing everything to keep my father’s burial a secret so that none of his loved ones can visit,” Kerri told The News Friday.
“She’s just spiteful, malicious and vindictive,” Kerri said.
Widow Jean Kasem was in control of the body after Kasem’s June 15 death ended Kerri’s control over his medical treatment.
Jean later commissioned a private autopsy in Tacoma and made arrangements to send Kasem to the Urgel Bourgie Funeral Home in Montreal, Canada, by July 14, a recent death certificate obtained by The News said.
“My dad has nothing to do with Canada. He lived in Los Angeles for 45 years. It just once again proves that my stepmother is not acting in my father’s best interest or respecting his wishes,” Kerri said Friday.

Casey had specific instructions to be buried in Hollywood Hills, but just like his equally specific instructions to die in peace if he ever became a vegetable, Jean Kasem is ignoring all of that (Haha! Wives.) and shipping his body to Jerusalem where thrown meat is awarded the significance and spiritual authority it deserves. Plus it just seems like a nice place to burn evidence:

“Kerri Kasem has a well-grounded fear that her right to petition for authorization to conduct an autopsy on the remains of her father, Casey Kasem, could be adversely affected if Jean Kasem were to remove Mr. Kasem’s remains from Washington State, or if Jean Kasem were to cremate Mr. Kasem’s remains,” the order signed by Pierce County Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper said.

“Elder abuse? What elder abuse? Clearly, my husband died from a mortar round while visiting the Holy Land. You never know what that crazy Hamas is going to do next. Sometimes just I want to throw a nice prosciutto at them they make me so angry.” – Jean Kasem, any minute now

  1. So…I guess death with dignity is off the table now?

  2. When will this poor man be laid to rest? How is she allowed to get away with this? The man had specific instructions on where to bury his body. This is insane.

    • It’s also pretty much bullshit – if the body’s been at a funeral home for over a month, I can guarandamntee you it was embalmed quite a while ago, making an autopsy less than useless as far as blood work goes. The man had a medically diagnosed horrible terminal illness so his death didn’t exactly come as a surprise, but demanding an autopsy may be the only way to compel that bitch Jean Casem from trying to have a particularly ugly last laugh.

  3. Nothing like bat shit crazy to get your Monday off to a good start.

    Why do I get the feeling Jean’s going to prop Casey’s corpse up Weekend at Bernie’s style so he can be her date for the 30th. anniversary re-release of Ghostbusters? “Oh Casey wouldn’t miss me saying ‘Lewis I’m going home’ in the theater one more time for the world.”

  5. If there was ever a more clear example of “Don’t stick your dick in Crazy”, this is it!

      You can and should stick your dick in crazy. They are awesome. However, you do not ever marry a crazy.

    Zoinks! Like maybe he’s a ghost!

    Somebody needs to tell Jean they test for Anti-freeze poisoning
    in Israel too. Hiding the body is only going to work for so long…

  8. Oh BABY

    “It just once again proves that my stepmother is not acting in my father’s best interest or respecting his wishes.”

    Casey Kasem doesn’t have any “best interests” anymore; the dude is dead. There was plenty of time and opportunity for his children to demand an autopsy and the fact is that his widow had a private one done, so there are medical records of his condition.

    Seems to me that Kerri is enjoying this press circus she’s helped to create, and though Jean Casem is clearly not firing on all cylinders, Kerri is the one who’s being spiteful and vindictive by making sure that her one-sided view is front and center.

    I’m sure we can all guess that there is far more to this situation than meets the eye, and the truth of the matter is that it’s a private situation that has no real place in the press. If Kerri Kasem wants her father to have some dignity in death, she should shut her pie hole and stop provoking Jean, who holds the whip hand.

    Sometimes using the public-shaming tactic backfires, and that seems to be the case here. Too bad Kerri isn’t smart enough to see that and act accordingly.

      Yours is one of the few intelligent comments that I’ve seen regarding this situation. Kerri really needs to STFU.

  9. And now, from Jean to Casey, here’s your long distance desecration.

    His body is the property of his wife, so she most definitely didn’t steal it. It was not smuggled into Canada. It was sent there perfectly lawfully. The daughter didn’t get the order to hold the body until after Jean had it moved to Canada. The daughter has no legal right to it, and after all of the trouble she has caused, I can well imagine that no funeral home would want to admit having it for fear of being sued by Kerri the Loon.
