Several days after it was reported Casey Kasem has still not been buried one month after his death, a disturbing new development has come to light.
The 82-year-old's body, which Casey's children willingly handed over to their stepmother, Jean Kasem, has reportedly gone missing from a Washington funeral home.
According to TMZ, it is believed Jean, who had been married to the radio legend since 1980, removed the body from the home one day before a judge ordered it be kept there so an autopsy could be performed.
The autopsy was a critical part in an ongoing criminal investigation to determine whether the "American Top 40" host suffered elder abuse at the hands of his second wife.
What's worse, no one can locate Jean, who reportedly listed Jerusalem as her address on Casey's birth certificate. Kerri Kasem believes her stepmother is currently out of the country.
Jean, an actress, has been at war with her husband's three eldest kids for years, culminating in court battles over his health care near the end of his life.
In May, Jean moved her husband out of a Calif. care facility without a doctor's permission, taking him across state lines into Washington. Kerri and her siblings were forced to file a missing person's report to track down their father.
No word yet on how the Santa Monica PD, who is investigating the elder abuse claims, will handle this latest development.
