We'll be talking about the death of John Travolta's son, Jett, on tonight's LARRY KING LIVE – keep checking back to the LKL blog today for the latest. (Comment here!)
John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s 16-year-old son, Jett, who had a history of health problems, was killed by a “seizure,” according to the death certificate issued today.
While the official results of an autopsy today have yet to been publicly announced, a source close to the investigation into Jett’s death tells E! News that a preliminary report determined “there is no foul play,” and corroborates what a Travolta family lawyer initially stated last Friday.
“It is not a suspicious death. The body wouldn’t already be turned over to the mortuary if there was anything suspicious,” the source said.
Bahamian Minister of Health Hubert Minnis did not say when, or if, the autopsy findings would be made public, but a press conference is expected later this afternoon. Bahamian official and close Travolta family friend Obie Wilchcombe tells E! News that the autopsy was completed at 12 p.m. local time and that Jett’s body is currently awaiting transport back to the U.S. (READ MORE)
