Casey Kasem has yet to be laid to rest a month after his death, according to a spokesman for his daughter. The U.S. broadcasting legend passed away on 15 June (14) at the the age of 82 after a battle with Parkinson's disease. His final days were marred by a feud between his family members, and his daughter Kerri held a memorial service for her father without the presence of her stepmother, Kasem's widow Jean. Kasem's remains was released to Jean after he passed away at St. Anthony Hospital in Washington, and she was expected to make the funeral arrangements, but a representative for Kerri has now claimed the body remains unburied. Spokesman Danny Deraney tells America's Nbcnews.com that Kasem's body is still in a Washington morgue. Kerri has previously voiced her hope that her father will be buried in California.
