It’s celebrity news, of course there is going to be some weird stuff to report like every week, or maybe we should say every day. Filed under semi-weird stuff would be the disappearance of Casey Kasem, who has been receiving medical attention for advanced Parkinson’s Disease. Yes, the same Casey Kasem you were listening to on the radio over 20 years ago.
For those of you who were losing sleep over Kasem’s absence, he’s been found…. in Washington State. The story is simple yet odd. The ‘America’s Top 40’ host was reported missing by his daughter, Kerri. It was concerning enough that a court ordered an attorney to investigate his whereabouts and also a doctor to evaluate his care.
Kasem’s condition is even more worrisome as his Parkinson’s Disease has stripped him of his ability to speak. The family has been on record about their concerns over his medical care. However, Kasem’s elder children have been forbidden to see their father in want appears to be elder abuse.
Like we said, it’s a sad, but strange story. There’s been nothing released at the moment about how or why he was in Washington. When the news breaks we will be sure to keep you updated.
