After legendary DJ Casey Kasem died last month in Gig Harbor, Washington, his body was sent to Gaffney Funeral Home & Cremation Services in Los Angeles. He was to be laid to rest there, except now his body has gone missing, and his kids and ex-wife are feuding over his whereabouts.
A lawyer for Kasem’s daughter Kerri Kasem said Friday that when he went to give a Tacoma funeral home a copy of the restraining order, he was informed it no longer had the remains.
“They said they could not disclose where he had gone or where he would end up,” said the lawyer.
Kasem’s wife of the last three-plus decades, Jean, was the one who filled out a death certificate, and the document listed Montreal’s Urgel Bourgie funeral home as the place of disposition and July 14th as the date it was supposed to happen. So, yeah, about that…
A man who answered the phone at Urgel Bourgie on Friday evening said it had disposed of no such remains and had no one by the name of Casey Kasem in its computer system.
I think we all know where the body has gone: Old Man Johnson stole it. And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids.
