"The saga involving Casey Kasem’s unburied body continues.

It’s been nearly six months since Casey’s death and the Los Angles Police Department has finally submitted its elder abuse case to the district attorney, reports TMZ.

The investigation, which was launched by Casey’s children, targets the late television legend’s widow,Jean Kasem.

The report claims Jean neglected her ailing husband in his last months, which caused infected bed sores, which may have contributed to his death."



Widows & Orphans

The Trust is moot all of the assets have been sold!

The Successor Trustee refuses to distribute the proceeds of the Thelsey L. Fuller Trust to the Trust beneficiaries as requested but, instead appears to be drawing out the proceeding in order to siphon off the Trust monies in excessive legal and trustee fees.

The beneficiaries have informed the Successor Trustee, Tala R. Davis, to render her resignation immediately.

Would You Be Willing To Report A Family Member For Financial Elder Abuse?



It would take some nerve to report an abusive family member to law enforcement.  We also know from the National Center on Elder Abuse that most abusers are family members.  And they tell us that only 44 out of 1000 instances of abuse are reported to authorities.  Why aren’t more cases reported to the very authorities capable of stopping the abusers?

It seems to me that most family members are simply unwilling to “rat out” another family member even when they know that abuse is going on. When it comes to the elders themselves, there is shame and embarrassment  with being taken advantage of by someone close, and someone they really trusted, a grown child perhaps.  They hesitate. They are fearful.  They want to talk about it but not do anything about it.  And the reluctance to report the abuse to Adult Protective Services is not limited to the elders who can’t bear to call the authorities about a son, daughter or other relative.
