A judge in Washington state has granted Casey Kasem's daughter a temporary restraining order preventing the famous radio host's wife from cremating his remains — but it's unclear where those remains are, or whether they've already been disposed of.

A lawyer for Kasem's daughter Kerri said Friday that when he went to give a Tacoma funeral home a copy of the restraining order, the home said it no longer has the remains.

Casey Kasem, Iconic Radio DJ, Dies at 82

A lawyer for Kasem's wife, Jean Kasem, refused to comment Friday.

Jean Kasem filled out a death certificate indicating that the remains would be taken out of state to a funeral home in Montreal. But that funeral home said Friday it has no remains of Casey Kasem and nothing about Kasem in its computer system.

Kasem died last month at age 82. His daughter wanted the body autopsied.
