Elder Abuse Report Considered In Kasem’s Death
24/7 News Source – The feud between Casey Kasem’s kids and his widow is apparently on hold, but not over. Kasem’s daughter Kerri Kasem is reportedly weighing the possibility of filing an elder abuse report against the DJ’s widow Jean Kasem.
Private investigator Logan Clarke tells “The Hollywood Reporter” Kerri has informed him that she will file a report with the Santa Monica Police Department “in the near future.” Kerri herself was quoted as saying, “There is a time and a place for that but now is not the time.”
TMZ reported earlier that Kerri peacefully turned over her father’s remains to Jean Kasem after her conservatorship expired upon Casey’s death Sunday.
The radio icon died at a hospice in Washington state days after a judge ruled that Kerri and her siblings could withdraw the food, fluid and medications necessary to keep Kasem alive.
They have been embroiled in a bitter battle with Jean over Kasem’s care for months.
The 82-year-old radio icon had been suffering from Lewy body dementia, a condition that left him unable to speak.
A memorial for Kasem is in the works for Friday.
