FULL TITLE: Casey Kasem could have died from wife disconnecting his feeding tube, snatching him from nursing home EXCLUSIVE
Casey Kasem could have died after his wife disconnected his surgically implanted feeding tube and snatched him from a California nursing home against medical advice at 2:30 a.m., staff members claim.
The shocking details revealed in documents and an exclusive interview with a private investigator paint a desperate portrait of Jean Kasem, who grabbed her husband out of Berkley East Convalescent Hospital on May 7.
She disconnected his G-tube, which provided his only source to nutrition and hydration, Dr. Paul Leitner, who was Kasems doctor at the facility, wrote to Santa Monica police. She was informed of the risks of doing so and was told she was placing Mr. Kasem in great bodily harm or possible demise.
Jennifer Kusiappiah, a registered nurse, also signed a statement, saying Kasems wife was concerned about her 82-year-old husbands privacy after his daughters, Kerri and Julie, visited their father.
Mrs. Kasem insisted on taking Mr. Kasem out of the facility, even though I have clearly explained that it was dangerous and can be fatal due to his medical condition, she said.

Could have, or did?
I think it’s trying to imply Mrs. Kasem removed Casey from the unit but did not succeed in taking his life.
After reading the whole thing several times I have come to the conclusion the whole family is nuts and am Praying for Kasey.
He is (or shortly "was") also an anti-nuke nut of the hippie peacenik sort. A liberal of the worst sort, Arab-apologist Kasem won't be missed one iota by those who love America and Israel.
I’m confused. I thought the children wanted to remove the feeding tube and the wife wanted to keep it.
I read earlier today that his daughter had either been given permission to or had made the decision to stop treatment and allow him to pass.
This is yellow journalism.
Only thing I remember him is for American top 40. Though the other day I found out he was the voice of “Shaggy” on scooby doo. Never knew that but it’s cool. All he was to me is a radio star. Then again how many other radio stars we know of are sell outs?
Kasem could have died? Isn’t that what his kids are working to achieve right now?
You’re right about this.
I certainly didn’t know of it. As kids we don’t know or understand such things.
But, this isn’t about Kasem per se. The discussion and interest is due to broader concerns relating to respect for life and respect for the sanctity of marriage.
I cannot believe someone like this did not prepare medical directives.
It’s not like he did not know his disease was slowly progressing.
If he did not, he deserves what he gets.
Being a mere sellout is one thing and a lot of people may momentarily compromise their principles for financial reward. But Kreepy Kasem stands against Israel and sides with the muzzies because that's the side he's on. Simply search the web using the phrase "No tears for Kasem" to get the unvarnished truth about this vile American-hating leftist.
I thought the judge ordered his feeding tube disconnected and his wife was opposed to doing so.
When someone is on a ventilator and has no hope of recovery and the vent is removed, it allows them to pass.
When someone has difficulty swallowing and therefore receives food and water through a feeding tube, taking away that food and water doesn't "allow them to pass." It kills them. The cause of death is not the disease process but dehydration. And it's a very bad way to die.
While that may all be true, he still has a God-given, UNALIENABLE right to life. Until God takes him out of here, no one has any right to dehydrate him to death.
Casey is also suffering from dementia and has sepsis from infected bed sores. He is old and dying and unable to take sustenance on his own. Let him pass from this life in peace.
“I cannot believe someone like this did not prepare medical directives.”
I took care of this several years ago-— with my family and my doctor.
Legal documents also.
That's going to be 80% of us someday. That's grounds to euthanize him? Keep him comfortable and let him die a natural death from the dementia or the sepsis if he really is dying, but why take away his water and food? That's euthanasia, that's not "letting him die."
