Jean Kasem, Kasem’s second wife, has the rights to his body but has kept it in a Washington morgue, according to a spokesperson for Kerri Kasem, the radio icon’s eldest daughter. The DJ’s children have said that their stepmother kept them from seeing or communicating with their father  in his final year of life. Jean Kasem did not attend a memorial service the children planned for their father, Kerri Kasem said.
Kasem was the host of American Top 40 from 1970 until his retirement in 2004, offering his countdown of pop music hits and “long distance dedications.” He was also the voice of Shaggy on Scooby-Doo .
He died on June 15 at age 82 after a battle with Lewy Body dementia .
