The Underground Bunker

“After Dr. Regimbal [of St. Anthony Hospital] examined Casey Kasem, his medical report concluded that Casey had been receiving appropriate medical care prior to his arrival at St. Anthony Hospital and that Casey was stable and could return home to the care he was receiving.” (Emphasis ours.)

Kerri didn’t allow her father to return home, however, and the day after that examination, there was a hearing about it in Kitsap County Superior Court.”

We’re very glad to see that the CBS program 48 Hours is taking on the bizarre story of Casey Kasem’s final days, and that they appear to be taking seriously the work done by a private investigator on behalf of Jean Kasem — work that has revealed new facts so troubling, a Washington state police chief announced this week that he has opened a new look at the legendary radio DJ’s 2014 death.

Jean sent us the same documents when her investigator, Hank Foresta, put them together more than a year ago. Some of the material he had dug up about the Kasem family drama was simply stunning. But it was a huge undertaking — Foresta’s document package was hundreds of pages long — and we never got the chance to dig into it the way we had wanted to.

However, we did look into one crucial part of it, and we hope and expect that CBS will also dig into it in their episode tomorrow night.

We’re going to assume that you know much of the backstory already — Casey Kasem developed Lewy body dementia, a devastating wasting disease that there is no cure for. As his health declined, he was caught in a tug of war between the children of his first family—daughters Kerri and Julie, and son Mike—and his second family, with wife Jean Thompson Kasem and their daughter Liberty.   READ MORE HERE
