Casey Kasem Body

MISSING

7/18/2014 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Casey Kasem Body MissingCasey Kasem has been dead for more than a month .... yet he's not been buried and now we've learned his body is missing.

Fingers now point in the direction of Casey's widow, Jean.  Family sources say Jean took the body from a funeral home the day before a judge ordered her to keep it there so an autopsy could be performed. 

The autopsy is crucial to an ongoing criminal investigation targeting Jean.  The Santa Monica PD is looking into elder abuse allegations ... that Jean took Casey on a wild, week-long multi-state car ride which caused him to develop bed sores that got infected and contributed to his death.

Jean and Casey's children have been at war for years.

As for where the body is ... no one but Jean seems to know, and no one can find her either.  It's interesting ... Jean listed Jerusalem as her address on Casey's death certificate. 

Casey's daughter Kerri believes Jean is out of the country. 

We reached out to Jean's people.  So far no word back.

Oh Dear Lord! Is that true? That poor man will never rest in peace. His wife was a real piece of work.

Guarantee he's been cremated. No evidence left to charge that crazy Jean with.

Weird - Jean (Thompson) Kasem is not Jewish, but does claim some Native American heritage and became an activist for the Palestian cause after marrying Kasem. If she took the money and ran that's disgusting - but if she somehow figured out how to take the BODY and run, that's ghoulish.

Meanwhile, over at HLN Nancy Grace-less is already practicing her indignant head-shake in preparation for the story to break...

Wow. That woman is crazy. She probably got him cremated & lives out of the country now. If she comes back, can't she be arrested for not obeying a court order?

Probably hidden in KK's butt crack. God knows there's enough room for 19 humans in that cavernous area.

Jean is ugly and has alwayz been useless n worthless. She married him for money n cinnections. He is a well loved icon and his last days and now this are WRONG. He deserves better. I cant imagine how his kids feel abt this. I despise Jean....no talent n greedy witch.

This is so not cool. The man who graciously entertained us for decades deserves better than this.
