Where is Casey Kasem?
It would be endearing to put out a long-distance dedication to longtime American Top 40 host Casey Kasem, but an All Points Bulletin is more urgent. Kasem has gone missing, and family and friends want to know what happened.
Yesterday a judge ordered an investigation into 82-year old Kasem’s whereabouts. Kasem’s wife Jean allegedly told her attorney that the frail, former radio personality had been removed from the country.
Even Casey’s children have complained they have been unable to see their father. Daughter Kerri had sought a temporary conservatorship and was appointed her father’s temporary caretaker after word of his disappearance. Her attorney said the family believes the entertainer has been taken to an Indian reservation in Washington state.
An attorney for Jean Kasem said she has every right to move her husband where she saw fit, if she is indeed responsible for her husband’s relocation.
Casey Kasem gained fame with his radio music countdown shows “American Top 40″ and “Casey’s Top 40,” and was the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon Scooby Doo.
