The voice behind Scooby-Doo, Casey Kasem, will have his final resting place as Oslo, Norway. His body will be laid in a grave or cremated in the capital of the Scandinavian country.

The DJ Casey Kasem is no longer with us. His deceased body will be shifted to Oslo for burial (or cremation) soon. This news reached the public courtesy of Kerri Kasem, who is his daughter. 

Casey Kasem died on June 15, 2014 in Gig Harbor, Washington. But his dead body is still not buried. However, a report in the Norwegian newspaper VG, which was confirmed by a private investigator for Kasem's daughter Kerri Kasem, Logan Clarke, that his body is headed to Oslo, Norway.

Clarke told The Hollywood Reporter, "He's going to be buried in Norway." THR reported according to the Norwegian press that a government official, was quoted by reporter Marcus Husby saying, "It is arranged. He's going to Oslo."

Commentary on which place in Oslo he will be laid to rest in peace has not been forthcoming from Kasem’s widow. There are a great many graveyards in Norway’s capital and a crematorium to boot. 

His widow had moved her husband’s remains from one place to another. And in spite of a magistrate’s restraint order, his widow had done as she thought appropriate. 

The widow wanted to keep the DJ away from his near and dear ones. This custody case has dragged on for more than three decades. The law authorities are looking into the matter since Kasem’s daughter spoke of how her father was abused by his widow. 

Meanwhile, his son has claimed that Kasem had no links with or fond memories of Oslo. How Norway was decided as the venue of his burial is a riddle wrapped in a mystery wrapped in an enigma. 

"There is no connection my dad has with Norway," says Kerri Kasem's brother, Mike Kasem.

"I don't know if Jean has any ties to Oslo. She certainly has never mentioned it in the last 35 years. Check the exhumation laws there; sounds like a possibility that is the reason she will bury him there. My dad deserves to be buried where he specifically asked to be buried: Forest Lawn. Everyone keeps asking for motives as to why Jean acts how she acts. I don't have an answer."

Casey Kasem was the man of a thousand voices. He was a permanently recognizable voice on the radio and entertained Americans for more than a generation. 

At least $15,000 will have to be spent on the burial. In fact, it is not even known yet if his remains have been cremated or are preserved for burial. 

Family members are flabbergasted and shocked by his widow’s possessive mentality. "We don't know what [Jean Kasem's] plans are," says Danny Deraney, spokesman for Kerri Kasem.

"We just know that she wants to keep Casey away from [his] family and friends and by the looks of it, hiding from law enforcement."

Casey Kasem is a man who was the voice behind the lovable Scooby-Doo. He was the darling of the people and was liked by everyone who met him down to the last man or woman. 

Ex-Police public information officer of Santa Monica, Lt. Jay Moroso told THR in June, "Mr. Kasem was [out] of the state after May 7, 2014, so there are jurisdictional issues with regard to where incidents occurred relative to any elder abuse claims."

"As far as Norway, we don't know what their rules and regulations are," Deraney said.  

 

"I don't think we need to exhume the body, we have so much evidence — video, photos, witnesses — and the police have collected so much evidence," Clarke said. "If this is not elder abuse, there is no such thing. And if the police drop this case, I'll take it on the 6:00 news."

To keep his death a hushed-up affair is a criminal offense of sorts and the police should take some tough measures against his widow who is preventing his immediate family from seeing him for one last time.
