Family of late deejay Casey Kasem file civil suit against widow
Yahoo News - over 1 year
(Reuters) - The widow of U.S. radio personality Casey Kasem has been sued by three of his children and his brother, who claim her actions led to his death in June 2014. The suit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday accuses Jean Kasem of elder abuse, inflicting emotional distress and breach of contract by restricting access to Kasem and failing to provide adequate medical care. Kasem, the former "American Top 40" deejay, died in Washington state at 82 after suffering from Lewy body disease, a form of dementia.

Radio star Casey Kasem's remains moved from funeral home against children's wishes
Yahoo News - over 2 years
By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The remains of radio personality Casey Kasem have been moved from a Washington state funeral home, against the wishes of three of his adult children, a spokesman for the siblings said on Friday. Kasem, the former host of the syndicated program "American Top 40" who died on June 15 at age 82, had been the focus of a dispute between his three children from his first marriage and his second wife, Jean Kasem. They said she had prevented them from visiting him as he suffered from Lewy body dementia, a malady with symptoms similar to Parkinson's disease. As his health deteriorated, a Los Angeles judge sided with the children and permitted them to withhold food, hydration and his usual medication as they chose comfort-oriented, end-of-life care at a Washington state hospital.

Clark suffered a heart attack while at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica for an outpatient procedure, his publicist said Wednesday. "Attempts to resuscitate were unsuccessful." The family has not yet decided whether there will be a public memorial service for the multifaceted Clark, although Shefrin said, "There will be no funeral." Clark suffered what was then described as "a mild stroke" in December 2004, just months after announcing he had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. That stroke forced Clark to cut back on his on-camera work, including giving up the hosting duties for the "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" specials. He returned as a co-host with Ryan Seacrest on December 31, 2005. Clark anguished each year over whether to continue appearing on the annual show because of limitations on his speech from the stroke, U.S. R ...
