CASEY KASEM's final resting place may not be NORWAY, after all.
Late last week (NET NEWS 8/15), ALL ACCESS reported It looked like the body of KASEM -- who died JUNE 15th in GIG HARBOR, WA -- would finally find a resting place, as several sources noted that his remains had been sent to OSLO, where he will either be buried in one of its 20 cemeteries or one crematorium.
But YESTERDAY (NET NEWS 8/20) we updated that the fight over the late KASEM continues to rage on -- with NBC NEWS reporting, "relatives and friends are pleading with the Norwegian government to deny a request by the late DJ's wife to bury him in the capital of OSLO. In a letter to NORWAY obtained by NBC News, 20 of KASEM's relatives and friends claim the legendary radio personality never spoke of a desire to be buried in NORWAY and always wanted his final resting place to be in his hometown, LOS ANGELES."
Now, NBC updates the story, reporting that, "After receiving a letter from KASEM's children asking for the Norwegian government to deny their stepmother's request to bury their father in OSLO, officials are consulting with legal advisers on their next course of action, a Norwegian government official told NBC NEWS on WEDNESDAY."
