(Newser) – 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.)

It is beyond disgusting, this man deserved better. Jean Kasem not only dishonored her husbands wishes, but she is trying to show his children that she has and always was in control of her husband. she is only hurting herself. The woman is mental for sure.

Dear Kasey, I am Not dead, despite the rumors. Please stop the lies pretending that i am dead. I am much alive.. I would like to send a long distance dedication to Kasey Kasem. I miss him so much. Can you please play "You Don't Know What You Got Til its Gone" by Aerosmith for my beloved Kasey Kasem. Signed K.K. Downing
