Report: Jett Travolta Death "Not Suspicious"

by at . Comments

The autopsy of John Travolta and Kelly Preston's 16-year-old son, Jett Travolta, who died Friday morning, has been completed in the Bahamas.

No results have been disclosed, and the official cause of death is still a mystery, though a source close to the investigation into Jett's death told E! News that the coroner's office has preliminarily ruled out any suspicious causes.

"It is not suspicious. The body wouldn't already be turned over to the mortuary if there was anything suspicious," the source said. "There is no foul play."

People reports that a "seizure disorder" claimed the teen's life.

The Bahamian Minister of Health, Hubert Minnis, did not say whether or not the autopsy report would be made available to the public.

However, should any red flags have gone up during the autopsy, or any causes of death other than an accident or natural causes be considered, the body would have been held at the hospital pending further tests and toxicology screenings.

As it is, the body of Jett Travolta is currently awaiting transfer to Grand Bahama's Restview Memorial Mortuary, where a viewing may take place today.

The remains of the teenager are expected to be flown back to the U.S. on Wednesday for a funeral in Ocala, Fla., where the Travoltas have a home.

Two pathologists worked to determine what exactly caused the tragic Friday death. The local coroner was joined by a United States-certified specialist.

The dual pathologist reports were intended to ensure accuracy and provide a more thorough analysis of what transpired. A report out of the Bahamas also claimed that the Travolta family doctor had been flown in to observe this morning's autopsy after getting special clearance from the health ministry.

The body of Jett Travolta was discovered by a caretaker, and based on statements by Travolta family lawyer Michael Ossi and authorities, the teenager, who suffered from Kawasaki disease, died Friday when he hit his head on the tub in his room at the Old Bahama Bay resort after suffering a seizure.
