Casey Kasem's body is headed for Europe, according to TMZ.

Go ahead and make your "Weekend at Casey's" joke and let's move on.

Nearly two months after Kasem's death in Washington state, his body is still in a Montreal funeral home. Now, Kasem's widow, Jean Kasem, is arranging to have the body flown to Europe -- possible Oslo, Norway, sources reportedly told TMZ.

That's totally normal, by the way. I've arranged to tour New Zealand via Micronesia after I die.

The website says the Santa Monica Police Department is investigating Jean for possible elder abuse, after one of the legendary DJ's children alleged her father developed a fatal infection as a result of his wife taking him to Washington to evade his family.

Authorities reportedly want to perform an autopsy. TMZ reports Kasem's children believe Jean Kasem is running to avoid criminal charges. The family is supposedly trying to keep Kasem's body in Canada until they can take legal action.
