Following up on a post from last year, Casey Kasem’s widow finally buried his remains several weeks ago in Norway. He supposedly had wished to be buried in LA, but she shipped his unembalmed (and malodorous) remains to Norway because she had ancestors from there.
Three quick points:
1. Unembalmed and rotting remains in a foreign country are difficult to autopsy for purposes of determining elder abuse.
2. The alleged Norwegian ancestral ties of a second wife should be unimportant in determining the burial site of an American of Lebanese descent.
3. Perhaps the widow’s Norwegian ancestors are the trolls important in Norwegian folklore.
