Inside Casey Kasem's Sad, Bizarre Final Days

Originally posted 08/21/2014 08:00AM

Casey Kasem's final days were rife with family drama, and his burial remains a source of contention two months after his death. And while no one could have predicted his sad end, the details of that time seem like works of morbid fiction.

Though he spent his last two weeks surrounded by his three children from his first marriage, the iconic radio personality died thousands of miles from his California home – a circumstance caused by the actions of his wife, Jean, that began months before his death on June 15, at the age of 82.

Kasem had been quietly living with advanced Parkinson's disease for years, but with his health deteriorating, things began taking a bizarre turn last year, and they continued to spiral months after his passing.

Man Who Propelled #IceBucketChallenge Dies After Jumping into Nantucket Harbor

A 27-year-old man died in a Nantucket diving accident, hours after he raised $100,000 for a Lou Gehrig's disease charity in honor of his friend who inspired the ice-bucket challenge sensation.

Nantucket Police tell The Boston Globe that Corey Griffin dove into the water from the "Juice Guys" building at around 2 a.m. Saturday. An off-duty lifeguard was nearby and recovered Griffin, who was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Griffin's family says he was friends with former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates, whose family and friends launched the ice-bucket challenge to raise awareness and funds for charity. Twenty-nine-year-old Frates was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease, also known as ALS, in 2012. The movement has taken off around the country recently. Griffin, of Scituate, had been fundraising in Nantucket.
