It’s A More Common Name Than You Think
Different blade-speeds for different Caseys.
For decades he kept America company through the nights on the airwaves, hosting America’s Top 40. He voiced some of the most familiar and lovable characters of a generation’s youth, like Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? and Robin the Boy Wonder on Batman cartoons, SuperFriends episodes, and even Sesame Street. His voice was so ubiquitous that the weekly reading of letters from heart-sick people all over the world dedicating songs to their loved ones became a permanent piece of the zeitgeist. Little did he know the sinister truth behind those letters.
But this story isn’t about that Casey Kasem, except tangentially. It’s about a totally different guy who also happened to be named Casey Kasem.
Lurking inside this Casey Kasem was a darkness. A darkness that the smooth-like-butter voice of his namesake and idol, the famous Casey Kasem, could only hold off for so long. He CRAVED something… sinister. And he did so uncontrollably. In 1972 he took his first life. It was a young man hitch-hiking on a desolate country road. Casey was horror-stricken at what he’d done. In his momentary lapse of willpower he’d ended another life with nothing more than his bare hands. He’d felt the life pulse and throb out of the young drifter. He’d locked eyes with the man and watched as the pupils relaxed.
The next few weeks were hell for Casey Kasem. The unfamous Casey Kasem, we mean, not the noted radio personality. He was glued to the television, convinced that any minute the police would bust in and the the jig would be up. But instead, something far more exhilarating happened. One rainy Sunday, Kasem was listening to America’s Top 40 when his ear was caught by a long-distance dedication: a lonely, wistful woman dedicating a love song to her boyfriend, who had apparently left her. He was supposed to be hitch-hiking his way home along the dusty desert highway of Southern California, but had never shown up. It was him, Kasem knew it. She was dedicating Beverly Bremers’ “Don’t Say You Don’t Remember” to the man he had killed. The coincidence lit a flame of excitement in his chest. Instantly, he craved more.
And so began a nationwide tour leaving destroyed lives in its wake. In every city he visited, Kasem struck. A murder here, an abduction there – sometimes involving his Euro-Pro NJ200 Ninja Warrior Handheld Blender and Food Processor. It was the perfect tool for a man like this particular Casey Kasem: it blended, it chopped, it crushed, it did everything he could want and more.
(If we had to guess, we’d say the better-known Casey Kasem probably enjoyed a Euro-Pro Ninja Warrior, too, based solely on his exquisite taste and his clear commitment to excellence. But we can’t confirm that the disc jockey Casey Kasem has ever used one, much as we would love to be associated with such a beloved cultural icon.)
The letters poured in. Wives missed their husbands. Children missed their mothers. Every week a new dedication asking the famous Kasem to please just let loved ones know, wherever they were now, that they were missed and cared for. It was hard for the non-famous, psycho killer Casey Kasem to contain the frenzied glee each dedication brought him. He would feel his mouth salivating as the words beamed across the countryside. It wasn’t enough. It was never enough. Soon he became dependent on their anguish. The only way the crazy criminal Casey Kasem could fall asleep was listening to his looped tape of heartbroken people seeking musical solace. Beyond his unwitting dedications, the broadcasting professional Casey Kasem had nothing to do with any of this. The names were simply a coincidence.
