Where Is Casey Kasem?

Casey Kasem, 82, has gone missing. Sort of. On Monday, a Los Angeles judge ordered an investigation into the whereabouts of Kasem after a lawyer for Kasem’s wife, Jean, said he’d been removed from the country. Kasem, who suffers from Parkinson’s, can no longer speak and has to be fed through a tube, has been living in medical facilities handpicked by Jean.

Casey Kasem’s children have complained that they have been unable to see their father in accordance with an agreement with their stepmother. Daughter Kerri Kasem had sought a temporary conservatorship and was appointed her father’s temporary caretaker on Monday. Her attorney, Troy Martin, said the family believes the entertainer has been taken to an Indian reservation in Washington state.

Murphy’s order came after Craig Marcus, an attorney who appeared on Jean Kasem’s behalf at Monday’s hearing, said he did not know where the radio personality was but knew that he had been removed from the country.

Earlier this week, Kasem’s children said they suspected Casey may be in Canada as they previously overheard Casey was being moved to an Indian reservation in Washington. It’s still unclear why Jean is moving Casey around like he was in Witness Protection.

“I’m just praying to God she hasn’t hurt him. He’s very ill and fragile right now. He would need an airplane with special medical services,” the daughter said.

Kerri Kasem said she could only speculate about her stepmom’s motivations because they’ve been estranged for years.

“In my opinion, this is something only someone with severe mental illness would do,” she said.

In other news, Casey Kasem is still alive. Imagine that.

Update: I probably shouldn’t be doing photos half-asleep.
