Gig Harbor Police Chief Kelly Busey said Friday that the administrative investigation didn't find evidence of a crime. He says he will forward the case to county prosecutors for review.

The longtime "American Top 40" host died at age 82 at a hospital in Gig Harbor, near Seattle.

Police opened the investigation last month after Kasem's wife, former actress Jean Kasem, submitted a private investigator's report claiming her three adult stepchildren were responsible for Kasem's death.

Busey says the investigation found Casey Kasem received appropriate care and no evidence of collusion between family and doctors.

Kasem's two daughters told KOMO-TV they feel vindicated. Jean Kasem has not commented.
