Judge Orders Casey Kasem's Whereabouts To Be Found

On Monday, the attorney for the wife of Casey Kasem won the right for authorities to begin searching for him after he has been reportedly removed from the country.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy ordered a court investigator and adult protective services to find out where Kasem is being treated and report back to the court. Kasem, 82, suffers from advanced Parkinson's disease, can no longer speak and has been in various medical facilities chosen by his wife, Jean Kasem.

Kasem, who is a radio personality best known for hosting of the weekly American Top 40 radio program from July 4, 1970, through 1988, and again from March 1998 until January 10, 2004, after he retired from the show.

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 Fox News reported on Monday.

"I have no idea where he is," Marcus said.

In a court filing last week, Kerri Kasem's attorneys wrote that the entertainer has been repeatedly moved without warning and his children have been unable to see him. The complaint accused Jean Kasem of elder abuse by isolating her husband from his family.

Daughter Kerri Kasem, who has been seeking temporary conservatorship for several days was appointed her father's temporary caretaker on Monday after Judge Murphy heard Jean Kasem's statements on his whereabouts. Kerri's attorney, Troy Martin, said the family believes the radio personality has been taken to an Indian reservation in Washington state.

"Your statements concern me even more," the judge told Marcus, who declined to comment after the hearing was finished.

As temporary conservator, Kerri Kasem will have access to her father's medical records and other reports that have previously been sealed by court order.

"We've been troubled for a long time," Kerri Kasem said after Monday's court hearing. She said Murphy's orders will ensure that the truth about her father's care comes out.

"Justice has been served today," she said.
