The body of radio legend Casey Kasem, which was reported to be missing last week from a Washington funeral home, has been moved to Canada, the late voice-actor's agent reveals.
Don Pitts said the body was flown to Canada by Casey's wife Jean early last week after being kept at the Gaffney Funeral Home in Tacoma, Wash. since his death on Jun. 15.
A spokesperson for the "American Top 40" host's three eldest children explained that while Jean has the legal right to move his remains without notifying the rest of the family, the kids are not happy to have been kept in the dark.
"Right now, she's not divulging that location. For what reasons, I don't know," the spokesperson told the Daily News.
One day after the body had already been moved, a judge forbade the removal of his remains from the Washington funeral home based on a request by Casey's daughter Kerri.
It was stated that an autopsy could provide key evidence in the ongoing elder abuse investigation being conducted against Jean.

The court case is the latest in a long-running feud between Casey's children from his first marriage and second wife Jean.
The transportation of his body to Canada has surely made matters worse, considering the 82-year-old had expressed his desire to be buried at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, Calif.
Before his death, Jean had been married to Casey since 1980 and the couple had one child, Liberty, together.
