File photo of John Travolta and son Jett
Today in the Bahamas two men are reportedly being held in connection with an alleged plot to extort money from actor John Travolta, according to a police official there.
The alleged plot involved the recent death of Travolta’s and actress Kelly Preston’s 16-year-old son Jett, who was found unconscious in the family vacation home in the Bahamas on January 2, 2009. Jett was pronounced death at a hospital shortly after being discovered in a bathroom of the home. No official cause of death has been released, but a seizure is widely believed to be the cause of the teenager’s death.
There are reports an island lawyer and a first responder are being detained and questioned. Very few details are being released about the case and there could be more people investigated in connection with the alleged extortion scheme.
