Casey Kasem: like a story from Scooby-Doo, his body's gone missing

The body of Casey Kasem, the former DJ and voice of Shaggy in Scooby-Doo, has gone missing from a funeral home.

Kasem's daughter Kerri Kasem suspects Casey's wife, Jean, has taken the body somewhere else, according to TheWrap.

Kerri made the discovery after she was granted a temporary restraining order preventing Kasem's wife, Jean, from cremating his remains.

When Kerri Kasem's lawyer went to the funeral home where Kasem's body was being held, he was advised the body was no longer there.

"After he died, he was taken to a mortuary for 30 days. Now we believe Jean has taken him somewhere else," a representative for Kerri Kasem told TheWrap. "We are trying to figure out where."

According to the Associated Press, the funeral home told lawyer Scott Winship that they could not disclose “where [Kasem's body] had gone or where he would end up.”

Kerri Kasem's rep, Danny Deraney, also confirmed that the mortuary has been unable to provide any specifics as to the whereabouts of Casey Kasem's body.

This is just the latest chapter in a long legal battle between Casey Kasem's wife and his adult children from a previous marriage.
