Daughter Kerri Kasem says the campaign to get the DJ's widow Jean Kasem charged has been put on hold due to her father's death, adding "now is not the time."
As Casey Kasem's family makes funeral arrangements in the wake of the DJ's death, there has been a pause in the campaign to get his widow Jean Kasem charged with alleged elder abuse. "There is a time and place for that but now is not the time," says Kerri Kasem, who has led the family in confronting Jean, whom they have accused of hastening Casey's death by taking him out of a Santa Monica hospital on what Jean called "a vacation" to Washington State.
"What I can tell you about the incident is that no official police report has been made at this time," says Lt. Jay Moroso, the ex-public information officer of the Santa Monica Police, who left the position last week and is serving part time until another PIO is hired. "However, a detective has been in contact and is working with Kerri Kasem ever since Mr. Casey Kasem was removed from the Berkley East Convalescent Hospital on May 7, 2014. Recently, the investigator was contacted by Mr. [Logan] Clarke, who is working for Kerri, and he received additional information from him regarding the case."
