The investigation into the death of Casey Kasem is being re-opened after the late DJ's widow Jean Kasem accused his three adult children of murdering him. But Casey's daughter Kerri exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com that her stepmother is the culprit!

On an upcoming 48 Hours special, Kasem's second wife claimed her late husband's children Kerri, Julie and Michael are responsible for his death, and that they convinced him to sign over power of attorney.

"They killed my husband," Jean said in a preview for on 48 Hours. "They killed their father. It was always about the money. We became the bank of Kasem. We were the personal ATM machine."

But Casey's daughter Kerri claimed on the special, "Jean killed my father. What she did let to his death."

During the final years of his life, his family fought over his $80 million to $100 million estate. Kasem died from a disease similar to Parkinson's in June 2014 at the age of 82.

The children filed a wrongful death lawsuit against her. She filed a countersuit on the same claims.

Now, Gig Harbor, Washington police have re-opened the case after a private investigator, who was hired by Jean, discovered Kasem was a victim of homicide.

Kerri exclusively told RadarOnline.com about the investigation, "I'm fed up with her! I can't wait until this trial is over. It starts May 13."

She continued, "She is literally accusing us, Casey Kasem's children, of doing what we have been accusing her of for the past five years! She has no defense, except to try and accuse the other person of what YOU have done yourself!"

But the claims don't end there, as she accused her ex stepmother of "disconnecting" her father's "feeding tube!"

"We didn't do anything," she said. "She killed my dad after taking him to three states. We tried to save his life. All the hospital record says is that my dad was dying. That's going to come out. I hope that's what will come out!"

The Mysterious Death of Casey Kasem airs Saturday, November 24, 2018 at 10pm on CBS.
