A Los Angeles judge has ordered an investigation as the U.S. TV and radio legend Casey Kasem, a 82-year old, went missing, according to reports.
His wife Jean’s attorney now claims Casey, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease and can no longer speak, is not in America.
Lawyer Craig Marcus told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy that unfortunately, he has “no idea” where he is. The former Top 40 legendary host has been removed from America, according to Craig.
This incident is one of the latest dramas surrounding this family. Reportedly, Jean and Casey’s children are in the middle of an ongoing drama. Casey’s children say they have not been able to visit or see their father.
Kasem’s daughter, Kerri, who has been demanding a temporary conservator-ship, was appointed her father’s caretaker on Monday, May 12. Her lawyer, Troy Martin, told the court that the family thinks the veteran star has been taken to a Native American reservation in Washington State.
Because there are no clues on his whereabouts, Judge Murphy has ordered a court-appointed attorney to find out where Casey is, as soon as possible.
Now Kasem’s family blames his disappearance on his wife, Jean, approximately 60-year old, an actress whose most famous role was as a trophy wife on Cheersand whose last IMDb credit is 1999’s “To Be or Not to Be Evil.”
However, Jean did not appear in court on May 12, but in November 2013, she and her attorney filed a statement saying, “These children falsely claim that their stepmother is wicked and is keeping her husband prisoner….”
“For reasons they know all too well, their presence at this stage would be toxic and extremely distressing for Casey, Jean and their daughter, Liberty, who have had enough of their cruelty.”
