As I have previously discussed, news that Casey Kasem’s body may be headed to Norway was released last week. Now, an article in a Norwegian newspaper and the private investigator for Kerri Kasem, Casey Kasem’s daughter, have confirmed that Kasem will be buried in Norway despite his wishes to be buried in Forest Lawn. It is unknown where in Oslo, Norway Kasem will be buried or why Jean Kasem, Kasem’s widow, chose the location. Kerri has alleged that Jean abused Kasem, but the foreign burial may create jurisdictional issues for building an elder abuse case.
