A month after Casey Kasem's death, the family drama is far from over: The iconic DJ still hasn't been buried, a spokesperson for Kasem's daughter tells NBC News. Kasem's second wife, Jean, has the rights to his body, and she has yet to arrange for him to be moved from a morgue in Washington state, the spokesperson says. Kerri Kasem, Jean's stepdaughter, has previously said that her dad wanted to be buried at Los Angeles' Forest Lawn Cemetery. (More drama: Jean Kasem has also been accused of cheating on her dying husband.)
