What happened to Casey Kasem in his most recent of events before he passed?

Asked by pleiades (5856 points ) 1 month ago

I remember reading segments of him being missing… then the next I read was he was allowed to be pulled off life support…

When did he go on life support? And how did he get kidnapped and for what reasons?

RIP Kasem

He hit the end of his final countdown.

There was somewhat of a quarrel over who had the legal authority to make his medical decisions for him, because he was not lucid. In the end, I believe it was his daughter who was determined to have the decision making authority, and she took him off life support, presumably at his previous request.

His current wife took him from a hospital setting in California and moved him to a private residence, one of her friends in Washington state. His daughter just got legal medical authority, his body was shutting down before they removed him from life support.

@elbanditoroso summed it up. My teen years would not have been the same without listening to Casey Kasem count the hits down.

So was he just passing away from old age? Or did he become a vegetable at some point?

Even down under we listened to Casey Kasem during the 1970s, my teenage, I have to admit I had completely forgotten about the man.

What had be been doing for the past 10 years? To me, he just disappeared from America’s Top 40’s many years ago, then recently reappeared when his relatives abducted him.
