Late U.S. broadcaster Casey Kasem's daughter Kerri has revealed her father has not been laid to rest and she is unaware of where his widow is holding his body. The radio legend, who suffered from Parkinson's disease, passed away earlier this month and the family celebrated his life at a memorial on 21 June (14), but Kerri reveals the family drama with his widow Jean is not over. After agreeing to allow her stepmother to arrange the funeral, Kerri reveals her father has yet to be buried and they do not know where Jean wants him to be laid to rest. Kerri insists she does not know where the animosity between the family members comes from, but she hopes her father's final wishes will be granted. She tells U.S. talk show The View, "He's still in Washington, he hasn't been buried, she didn't come to the memorial. I don't know what is going on with her and why she makes the decisions she does. My dad wanted to be buried in Forest Lawns (in California), so I hope that is where is final resting place is." Jean, who wed Kasem in 1980, is also the executor of her husband's will.
