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.
