Casey Kasem Still Remains Unburied

Radio host Casey Kasem passed away on June 15, but his body has still not been buried. Kasem's remains are at a funeral home in Tacoma, Washington after his second wife Jean Kasem claimed his body at a hospital in Washington State. The problem seems to be an ongoing legal battle with Kasem's children from his first marriage. Fighting over his care for years, Casey’s death has ignited a beef over where he should be buried. Kasem’s children are pushing for Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale California. They claim these were his wishes.

However Scott Thompson, spokesman at St. Anthony Hospital, stated he is unaware of the plans that Jean Kasem made when she claimed her husband’s body.
