    The fate of Top 40 countdown legend CASEY KASEM took a strange twist TODAY when a judge ordered an investigation into KASEM's whereabouts after his wife's attorney said KASEM was out of the country -- and he didn't know exactly where KASEM was. ABC NEWS reports that L.A. SUPERIOR COURT Judge DANIEL S. MURPHY ordered a court investigator and adult protective services to find out where the iconic DJ is being treated.
    KASEM, 82, suffers from advanced Parkinson's disease and can no longer speak; his care is under the supervision of his wife, JEAN KASEM. His children have complained that they have been unable to see their father in accordance with an agreement with their stepmother. Daughter KERRI KASEM's attorney, TROY MARTIN, said the family believes the entertainer has been taken to an Indian reservation in WASHINGTON state.

    Judge Orders Investigation Into Casey Kasem's Location

    Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy ordered a court investigator and adult protective services to determine Kasem's whereabouts.

    A judge on Monday ordered an investigation into the whereabouts of Casey Kasem after an attorney for the ailing radio personality's wife said the former "Top 40" host had been removed from the country.

    Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy ordered a court investigator and adult protective services to find out where Kasem is being treated and report back to the court. Kasem, 82, suffers from advanced Parkinson's disease, can no longer speak and has been in various medical facilities chosen by his wife, Jean Kasem.

    Casey Kasem's children have complained that they have been unable to see their father in accordance with an agreement with their stepmother. Daughter Kerri Kasem had sought a temporary conservatorship and was appointed her father's temporary caretaker on Monday. Her attorney, Troy Martin, said the family believes the entertainer has been taken to an Indian reservation in Washington state.
    Murphy's order came after Craig Marcus, an attorney who appeared on Jean Kasem's behalf at Monday's hearing, said he did not know where the radio personality was but knew that he had been removed from the country.
    "I have no idea where he is," Marcus said.
    The revelation brought stunned protests from Murphy and two of Casey Kasem's daughters, two of the entertainer's three children from a previous marriage.
    "Your statements concern me even more," the judge told Marcus, who declined to comment after the hearing.
    Marcus said in court that Jean Kasem had every right to move her husband as she saw fit.
    Murphy appointed a doctor to look into Casey Kasem's care and ordered a court-appointed attorney to find out his whereabouts as soon as possible.

    STORY: The Sad, Strange Family Battle Over Radio Legend Casey Kasem

    Casey Kasem gained fame with his radio music countdown shows "American Top 40" and "Casey's Top 40," and was the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon Scooby Doo.
    As temporary conservator, Kerri Kasem will have access to her father's medical records and other reports that have previously been sealed by court order.
    Kerri Kasem's case is the second one opened by one of the former host's children to try to gain access to their father and have some say about his care. A previous case by daughter Julie Kasem was dismissed after she reached a settlement with her stepmother, but the daughter said Monday that agreement has been breached.
    In a court filing last week, Kerri Kasem's attorneys wrote that the entertainer has been repeatedly moved without warning and his children have been unable to see him. The complaint accused Jean Kasem of elder abuse by isolating her husband from his family.
    "We've been troubled for a long time," Kerri Kasem said after Monday's court hearing. She said Murphy's orders will ensure that the truth about her father's care comes out.
    "Justice has been served today," she said.

    A statement from DANNY DERANEY, a representative of KASEM's children, said, "We have received confirmation that CASEY KASEM has been found in WASHINGTON State. The family has grave concerns about his medical care. The KASEM family will do everything in their power to bring their father home." KERRI KASEM, CASEY's daughter, appointed temporary conservator by the court on MONDAY, added, "We are grateful to the local authorities for finding my Dad. We are one step closer to bringing him home."
    Daughter KERRI KASEM posted on her FACEBOOK page, "We are grateful to the local authorities for finding my Dad. We are one step closer to bringing him home."

    Default Judge Expresses 'Concerns' About The 'Health And Welfare' Of Casey Kasem

    From All Access:

    Last week, CASEY KASEM was located safe in WASHINGTON STATE, after his family filed a missing persons report for the legendary radio personality on WEDNESDAY (5/14). The KITSAP COUNTY Sheriff's Department said that KASEM was at an undisclosed address provided by CALIFORNIA Adult Protective Services with his wife JEAN and was aware of where he is.

    Now, THE SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS reports, "a judge on TUESDAY expanded the powers of CASEY KASEM's daughter to determine whether her father is receiving adequate medical care amid his ongoing concerns about the health and welfare of the ailing radio personality. LOS ANGELES Superior Court Judge DANIEL S. MURPHY ordered KASEM's wife, JEAN, to comply with court orders allowing doctors to evaluate her husband, and also allow his daughter KERRI to see him. He also ordered JEAN KASEM to surrender her husband's passport and temporarily suspended her powers to determine her husband's medical care."

    The judge expressed additional concerns about the lack of additional information and cooperation from JEAN KASEM, and has appointed an attorney and doctor to evaluate CASEY KASEM, however neither has been able to contact him or his wife.

    During the court hearing YESTERDAY, MURPHY told attorneys representing JEAN KASEM that, "I'm not sure she's even complying with my order," and told KERRI KASEM she could hire an unarmed private investigator to help find her father if necessary.

    From the AP:

    CASEY KASEM'S WIFE SERVED WITH GUARDIANSHIP PAPERS

    The wife of ailing radio personality Casey Kasem has been given a California court order that temporarily suspends her powers to determine her husband's medical care amid concerns about his health and welfare.

    The order Kitsap County sheriff's deputies delivered Friday also expands daughter Kerri Kasem's authority to determine whether her father, who's now in Washington state, is receiving adequate medical care.

    Wife Jean Kasem told KING-TV in an interview aired Friday evening that her husband is getting the best possible care and she is "not going to allow anybody to shred (her) family on unfounded facts and malicious accusations."

    Video link here: http://www.king5.com/news/local/Stat...260488921.html

    Sheriff's Deputy Scott Wilson says officers performed a welfare check on the 82-year-old Kasem May 13. He's staying at the home of family friends.

    Kasem gained fame with his radio shows, "American Top 40" and "Casey's Top 40."

    Default Casey Kasem Hospitalized As Drama Unfolds Between Jean And Kerri Kasem

    From All Access:

    Following an order by KITSAP COUNTY Judge JENNIFER FORBES to allow radio icon CASEY KASEM's daughter KERRI to visit him for the first time since his wife JEAN moved him to WASHINGTON from a SANTA MONICA facility without notifying his family, the ailing CASEM was taken to a hospital on SUNDAY (6/1) amidst some high drama between JEAN and KERRI in which JEAN threw a pound of hamburger meat at KERRI.

    KERRI had initiated the move to a hospital for her father, with FORBES' permission, when she testified that a physician hired by JEAN reported that "her 82-year-old father had developed infections in his lungs and bladder and has bed sores," according to NBC NEWS.

    Paramedics were not allowed inside the SILVERDALE, WA residence where CASEY was living. 911 was called and a second ambulance and fire truck arrived. JEAN walked downstairs and threw a pound of raw hamburger meat at KERRI. The paramedics eventually got inside and picked up CASEY KASEM.

    The NBC NEWS report continues, "KERRI was just very, very upset because her dad's health had declined so much since she and Julie saw him on May 6," her aunt MARY KASEM. He just went backwards. She was so heartbroken on FRIDAY that it broke my heart."
    Another hearing about the health and welfare of CASEY KASEM is set for FRIDAY in front of Judge FORBES.

    Default Judge Rules Kasem to Go Home With His Wife

    From Radio Online:

    The media circus and Reality-TV-style drama that has become the Casey Kasem story seems terribly unfitting of the man behind the iconic voice that thrilled so many for so many years. One has to wonder if Kasem is even aware and what his take would be. Regardless, the saga continues and Kitsap County Superior Court Judge Jennifer Forbes ruled that the ailing Kasem, 82, can return to his Seattle-area home where he's been staying with his wife, provided doctors approve.

    The ruling comes the day after Kasem was taken by ambulance to a medical facility following an intense argument between his wife, Jean, and Kasem's daughter Kerri Kasem. It stipulates that there must be medical supervision and doctors have to clear him safe to travel.

    This past Sunday, authorities responded to a 911 call at the house and found Jean and Kerri Kasem arguing. Danny Deraney, a spokesman for Kerri Kasem, later said Jean Kasem tossed a package of ground meat at her stepdaughter. Jean Kasem's response to reporters was, "If you need to know why I did it -- when a person is about to pass away, there are always rabid dogs."

    I've heard from a source that wants to remain anonymous, that Kasem is in still in the hospital, but now in critical condition. It could be his last days, I'm told.
