Is it the smoking gun?
The trial of two defendants accused of trying to exort $25 million from John Travolta in return for handing over a document relating to the death of the star's 16-year-old son, Jett, continues in the Bahamas today.
Meanwhile, PEOPLE has watched videotape of conversations recorded by the Royal Bahamas Police between Travolta's attorney and the two defendants - paramedic Tarino Lightbourn and his lawyer, Pleasant Bridgewater, a former Bahamian senator - that appear to be an attempt to secure a multi-million dollar payment from Travolta for the return of a form the star signed when considering whether to have his son be taken to an airport rather than to the nearest hospital.
"Where the hell did you get a number of 25 million bucks?" Travolta's lawyer, Michael McDermott, indignantly asked Lightbourn, who was one of the first people to arrive at the scene of Jett's death, about the exorbitant sum the paramedic allegedly demanded for handing over the document, known as the Do Not Transport form.
