Radio legend Casey Kasem has been found in Washington State after daughter, Kerri Kasem, filed a missing persons report.
In a bizarre twist that we couldn’t make up if we tried, the search for father Kasem was sparked after the lawyer for his wife, Jean, told a Los Angeles County judge that he did not know of Kasems’ whereabouts, but thought he was out of the country. The judge ordered an immediate search into the locations of Kasem right around the time Kerri filed her report.

Kasem, who is 82, suffers from Lewy body disease, can no longer talk and must eat through a feeding tube. His children have accused Jean of preventing them from seeing their father, because why else do younger wives prevent kids from seeing their famous fathers?
“In my opinion, Jean is worried about us meeting again. She’s worried about the money. She thinks we’re going to get him to change the will. She’s out of her mind. As I’ve said all along, we’re not going to contest the will. We’re all successful enough on our own. She can take the house. We just want our dad back,” Kerri Kasem told the New York Daily News.

Apparently this is nothing new for Jean. The actress who took minor roles in “Ghostbusters” and “Cheers,” banished Kasem’s adult children from the house where they raised their daughter, Liberty.
Evil step-mother indeed. Daughter Kerri has been granted temporary medical conservatorship over her ailing father, meaning she now has control and responsibility over his daily and financial affairs. The former Sixx Sense radio personality said, “We are grateful to the local authorities for finding my Dad.”
