Police Investigating John Travolta's Sons Death

We're still having such a hard time absorbing the tragic news of John Travolta's sons death, so we can only imagine the grief the family is going through.

Police Superintendent Basil Rahming said on Saturday the autopsy, which could determine the cause of death of Jett Travolta, was likely to be performed on Monday. And so far two experts have been commissioned for the job.

The family has yet to release any further information about the accident, but police have launched a full-blown investigation.

Initial reports suggested that Jett was not discovered for hours after the seizure, but John Travolta's lawyer and close friend, Michael McDermott, and family attorney Michael Ossi, both of whom are with John in the Bahamas, claim otherwise.

McDermott and Ossi say it is still unclear if Jett fell to the floor as a result of a seizure or if he had a seizure after falling or slipping. There was blood on the floor of the bathroom, but "not a tremendous amount," reports TMZ.

Either way there was only a short window of time between his fall and the seizure, says McDermott. And the ambulance was called right after. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The autopsy will take place on Monday morning and John Travolta has made arrangements with a funeral home in the Bahamas to ship Jett's body on Tuesday, presumably to their family home in Florida.

Our condolences go out to the Travolta family. Losing a child is probably one of the hardest things anyone can deal with. Our hearts go out to them.
