The conservatorship over the health care of T.V. and radio personality Casey Kasem was given to his daughter, Kerri Kasem, Reuters reported on June 6.
Kerri, a daughter of Casey from his first marriage, will now supervise the care being given to her ailing father. He was placed in critical condition for an infected bed sore, and he also suffers from Lewy body disease, a type of dementia which affects cognition. The decision was reached amid dispute between Casey’s children with his first wife, and his second wife, Jean Kasem.
In May, police found Casey Kasem at Jean Kasem’s house shortly after the children from his first marriage filed a missing persons report regarding Casey’s disappearance.
