The saga of the late Casey Kasem's family drama continues: It was revealed this week that the iconic DJ's missing body had been moved to Canada by his wife, Jean, who had previously been accused of cheating on her dying husband. Now, a private investigator hired by Kasem's daughter from a previous marriage, Kerri, says Kasem's body is in Montreal ... the hometown of Jean Kasem's alleged 46-year-old lover. The PI also says that lover, John Paul Gressy, has been living in Kasem's Malibu condo—and was doing so even before Kasem's death.

Gressy might be the man mentioned in Kerri Kasem's bid for conservatorship over her dad back in May: "Witnesses will testify that Mrs. Kasem has been lying to Mr. Kasem for at least two years, telling him that they are divorced," reads a legal letter attached to that petition. "What possible motive could Mrs. Kasem have for such cruelty? Perhaps the younger gentleman that has been staying at the Malibu house and driving Mr. Kasem's car could answer that question for us." It seems even Jean's attorneys aren't exactly members of her fan club: TMZ reports they have asked to be relieved as her counsel, and say she owes them $500,000. (More Casey Kasem stories.)
