Judge Allows Water and Food Infusions Stopped For Casey Kasem

He is one of the main reasons why I’m in the radio business. You may be like me and are missing the iconic radio voice and countdown personality of Casey Kasem. Sadly, Superior Court Judge Daniel Murphy has reversed a previous ruling and now says that giving Casey Kasem food and fluids would be harmful and cause more discomfort.

Recently, the family’s battle over Kasem’s medical care has gone public. Following his disappearance, Kasem’s daughter Kerri was granted conservatorship over her 82 year-old father. ABC News reported that in a statement last Friday (June 6, 2014).

“Kerri’s spokesman said her father’s health is declining and he “won’t be with us much longer.”

CNN also tells us that attorney Troy Martin has said:

“The court’s decision today upheld our father’s explicit wishes as expressed by him in his health directive,” Kerri Kasem said in a statement after the hearing. She was referring to a directive her father signed in 2007, saying he would not want to be kept alive if it “would result in a mere biological existence, devoid of cognitive function, with no reasonable hope for normal functioning.”

Family and friends say that his daughters, son and brother are with Casey, listening and watching old broadcasts of his iconic countdown show in a Washington hospice. The family believes these memories are giving him enjoyment and comfort, during his final days.
