After an emotional legal battle over visitation rights leading up to the death of legendary DJ Casey Kasem, the drama has continued.

Kasem's body may now be missing.

After his death in Tacoma, Washington, Kasem's body was taken into custody by Gaffney Funeral Home. However, according to Gaffney and the death certificate, Kasem's body was then transferred to another funeral home in Montreal, Canada, who would not comment on the matter.

Family sources said Casey's widow Jean had the body transferred the day before a judge ordered her to keep it there so an autopsy could be performed.

The autopsy is crucial to an ongoing criminal investigation targeting Jean. Santa Monica, California police are looking into allegations of elder abuse allegations after claims that that Jean took Casey on a wild, week-long, multi-state car ride, which caused him to develop bed sores that got infected and contributed to his death.
