Autopsy on John Travolta’’s son planned in BahamasJanuary 4th, 2009 - 2:45 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, January 4 (ANI): Two pathologists would perform autopsy on John Travolta’’s son to determine the cause of his death, Bahamas health minister said.
Jett, 16, who had a history of seizures arising from the rare condition Kawasaki Disease, had been found dead at the actor’’s vacation home in Grand Bahama.
Caretaker Jeff Katharain had discovered the collapsed boy in the bathroom on January 2, reports Fox News.
The teenager had then been taken to Rand Memorial Hospital, Freeport, where he was pronounced dead, Police Superintendent Basil Rahming said in a statement.
It is yet to be determined if Jett fell to the floor as a result of a seizure or if he had a seizure after falling or slipping.
Dr. Hubert Minnis revealed that he decided to use a second specialist to help perform the autopsy to ensure a thorough consideration of what might have been the cause of death.
Jetts body is to be embalmed at Restview Memorial mortuary in the Bahamas.
Owner Keith McSweeney told Radar Online said: “We will embalm the body and there will be a private family viewing. After that, the body will be shipped back to Ocala, Florida.” (ANI)
