I don’t know how many of you have been following the frankly very sad but also bonkers saga of Casey Kasem’s final days and the fight over his remains, but it looks like it’s lurching towards a conclusion.

Two months after his death, Kasem’s widow has announced that she is taking his body to be be buried in Norway. Kasem’s children, who have been fighting to have access to their father for months prior to his death, insist that this is being done specifically to thwart an investigation as to whether or not Casey Kasem was a victim of elder abuse at the hands of his wife.

While this is obviously not what Kasem’s children want, there’s a part of me that hopes his body is put to rest soon because watching it be moved around and hidden like some kind of game piece is obscene. If Kasem was the victim of elder abuse in his last days, hopefully there is other evidence his children can use to bring charges.
