His widow appears to have taken it...
Casey Kasem's body is reportedly missing following his passing last month. As previously reported, the radio icon died in June of complications from dementia and it was revealed this week that he still hadn't been buried yet. TMZ reports that his body is missing and that family members claim that his widow Jean took the body from a funeral home the day after a judge ordered that it be kept there so that an autopsy could be performed.
Jean Kasem is the target of a criminal investigation into allegations of elder abuse. Jean took the late deejay on a car trip over a week which allegedly caused him to develop bed sores that got infected and contributed to his death. Jean has been fighting with Kasem's children for years, with the two sides bitterly facing off over his well-being at the end of his life.
Jean's whereabouts are currently unknown as well. She listed Jerusalem as her address on Kasem's death certificate and his daughter Kerri believes that she is out of the country.
