An investigation into the death of Casey Kasem more than four years after the radio icon died has cleared his family of wrongdoing, Washington police said Thursday.
"The Gig Harbor Police Department investigation revealed that the standard of care delivered to Mr. Kasem by medical personnel was appropriate and that any medical decisions were made by family members authorized to act on his behalf," said a statement released by the police Thursday.

"There was no evidence of collusion between parties that would construe any part of this incident to be considered a homicide," the statement said.
Casey Kasem died in June 2014 in Washington state, where his wife, Jean Kasem, took him after removing him from a medical facility in Southern California where he was receiving around-the-clock care. The longtime "American Top 40" host had a form of dementia and severe bedsores when he died.
