Last week (NET NEWS 5/15), 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.
