Casey Kasem’s wife is now under criminal investigation after allegations of elder abuse were made against her by his daughter Kerri.
According to TMZ, Kerri told cops that Jean Kasem may have triggered the fatally deteriorating health of the legendary Top 40 broadcaster after she removed him from a convalescent home and transported him to several states in a failed attempt to hide him from his children.
According to Kerri, Jean took Kasem away from the Berkley East Convalescent Hospital and drove him to Nevada. Then she drove him to Arizona, then back to Nevada, and finally flew him to Washington.
Kerri claims that during the course of the inter-state journeys, Kasem developed a bedsore which got infected … and now it is life threatening and may be the immediate cause of 82-year old’s imminent death.
The Santa Monica PD is currently investigating the allegations.
As ENTmania! reported, a judge on Wednesday allowed Kasem’s daughters to take him off life support … and Jean was furious about the decision.
