Casey Kasem

Elder Abuse Criminal Investigation

Targeting Wife Jean

6/12/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0611-jean-casey-kasem-splash-getty-01Police are looking into allegations ... Casey Kasem's health may have been fatally compromised when his wife removed him from a convalescent home and took him on a surreptitious, multi-state ride ... and now there's a criminal investigation, TMZ has learned.

Family sources tell TMZ ... Casey's daughter Kerri contacted the Santa Monica Police Dept., claiming her dad is the victim of elder abuse at the hands of Jean Kasem

Kerri handed over documents which she said showed ... Jean removed Casey from the Berkley East Convalescent Hospital last month.  Kerri claims Jean drove to Nevada to find a place to keep Casey away from the family. 

Nevada proved fruitless, so Jean drove Casey to Arizona, then back to Nevada and then finally flew him to Washington.

Our sources say Kerri has medical documents showing that during the trip Casey developed a bedsore which then became infected and ultimately life-threatening.

Kasem family sources say the infection could end up being the immediate cause of death -- which looks likely to occur at any time.

Our sources say the Santa Monica PD is currently investigating Kerri's allegations, and Jean is the target.

I worked with senior citizens for years and never has a single bedsore been a cause of death. There has to be many and they have to be (long term) severely infected.

This is going to be quite a battle. I just hope Casey isn't aware of what's going on. In his condition, he needs a peaceful environment.

Why didn't the authorities check before when it could have made a difference, before crazy lady moved him from state to state? Now that it's too late, now they have the time and manpower to investigate after the fact.

Ya think not giving him medication, food, and water will have anything to do with his death?

They stopped his medications, nutrition, and fluids. What a horrible way to die .....This woman has been married to this man for over 34 years. Who the heck wants to rot in a nursing home? Especially a person that led such an exciting life. Those kids are not even going to let her see him before he dies, and he will die. Starvation and dehydration, such a horrific way to go. The only ones that need to be ashamed are those kids and the State of California for allowing an elderly person to be tortured to death.
