Casey Kasem Lawsuit re Homicidal Guardianship Scam”

Last week, the widow of radio and TV personality Casey Kasem filed a personal injury lawsuit against her late husband’s three adult children from a prior relationship, accusing them of participating in a “homicidal guardianship scam” that she says directly led to his death.


Jean Kasem alleges that the children rendered control of Casey Kasem’s medical care against a judge’s order, chemically restrained him and ordered hospital staff to withdraw food and water, killing him on June 15, 2014. The alleged motive was to gain control of Casey and Jean Kasem’s joint assets.
