Kasem’s children were not present and it isn’t clear if his wife, Jean Kasem, was there either. According to TMZ.com, Kasem’s children didn’t find out their father had been buried until Monday, December 22nd.

The burial may put an end to a longstanding legal battle between the wife and the children who initiated an elder abuse investigation through the LAPD. The children alleged that Kasem’s widow’s lack of appropriate treatment resulted in bed sores that contributed to his death.

Unfortunately Kasem’s body had been decomposing for the past six months and it was never embalmed. So it’s now virtually impossible to prove if their suspicions were right.
