DJ Casey Kasem’s body is to be moved to Oslo, Norway, according to reports in the Norwegian newspaper VG.
A Norwegian government official told the paper an application had been made to bury Casey Kasem’s remains in the city.
His body was moved by his wife, Jean Kasem, to Ontario in Canada after he died, aged 82, in Washington state in June.
Casey Kasem’s children from a previous marriage say his remains are being kept from them by their stepmother.
Jean Kasem and children have been in dispute over his body since his death.
Casey Kasem’s daughter, Kerri, has accused Jean Kasem of abusing her father before he died.
Kerri Kasem wants a full autopsy to be performed on the body.
The abuse allegations are being investigated by police in Santa Monica, where Casey Kasem had been in hospital before his death.
Kerri Kasem’s spokesman, Danny Deraney, told Billboard it was not clear what Jean Kasem planned to do with her husband’s remains.

“We just know that she wants to keep Casey away from family and friends and by the looks of it, [is] hiding from law enforcement,” he said.
If Casey Kasem is finally laid to rest in Norway, it will be the end of a journey for the man who was the voice of Shaggy in the TV animation, Scooby Doo.
In May, Casey Kasem – who had been suffering from dementia – was taken by his wife from Santa Monica to Las Vegas and then to Washington state, where they were tracked down by a private investigator working for Kasem’s children.

Now it appears Oslo may be the body’s final stop.
However, Casey Kasem’s son, Mike, said his father had no connection to Norway.
“I don’t know if Jean has any ties to Oslo. She certainly has never mentioned it in the last 35 years,” Mike Kasem told Billboard.
“Everyone keeps asking for motives as to why Jean acts how she acts. I don’t have an answer.”
Casey Kasem began his career in the 1950s and found fame with the chart program.
DJ Casey Kasem famously ended his broadcasts with his signature sign-off: “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.”

Soli Brug Gallery in Greaaker in Norway has admitted losing a Rembrandt etching worth up to $8,500 in the post, after trying to save money on a courier and insurance.
The art gallery, 80 km south of Oslo, bought the Dutch master’s Lieven Willemsz van Coppenol, Writing-Master, from a British dealer.
The etching, made around 1658, is now lost in the Norwegian postal system.
The gallery’s chairman Ole Derje said they had used regular mail as couriers and insurance were “quite expensive”.

Ole Derje said he received notice to collect the piece. When he arrived, though, it was nowhere to be found.
“It is worth around 40,000 to 50,000 crowns,” he said, claiming that the postal service was only offering compensation of between 500 and 1,000 crowns.
Ole Derje declined to name the seller, citing confidentiality concerns. The Soli Brug Gallery already displays works by Rembrandt, Goya, Munch and Dali.
“We are sorry that this has happened,” said Hilde Ebeltoft-Skaugrud, a spokesman for the Norwegian postal service.
“We have advised him to use a more appropriate form of mail when sending items that are worth as much as this with the appropriate insurance connected.”
