UPDATE 1/4/09: TMZ is reporting that there’s a conflict brewing between the Bahama PD and John Travolta’s camp regarding the time line of Jett Travolta’s death. People who are with Travolta are bristling at the suggestion Jett might have been left unattended for more than 10 hours, but this morning cops say they are sticking to their story.
Police in the Bahamas are investigating yesterday’s death of John Travolta’s 16 year-old son Jett Travolta through their “Serious Crimes” unit. Jett died yesterday, ostensibly due to a seizure that caused him to hit his head in the bathtub of the Travolta vacation spot on Grand Bahama Island. What is not clear is WHY Jett was alone in the bathtub.
Jett was last seen by anyone the night prior to his death when he went to the bathroom. He wasn’t found until 10:00am yesterday morning. His “nanny” Jeff Michael Kathrein found him. This pic of John and Jeff is from 2006, but maybe it’s why Jeff wasn’t caretaking too well.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday, and Jett’s body is to be flown Tuesday to Florida.
Jett had a history of seizures, and, unfortunately, John and wife Kelly Preston are Scientologists. Scientologists shun virtually all forms of medication, and instead use dangerous detox “purification rundown” regimens, potentially toxic high-dose Niacin treatments, “auditing” (the tin-can sham) and other whacky “cures” like “touch assists” for what ails someone. No anti-seizure medicines for Jett, you can be sure of that. Jett was extremely developmentally challenged, and was known not to be able to communicate with words. Most people agree he was autistic, especially people in Ocala, FL. where the family spends much of their time.
John and Kelly refused to admit Jett’s true affliction, choosing instead the obscure “Kawasaki Syndrome” to define Jett’s problems. Any quick study of the syndrome reveals that it was highly unlikely that it was what Jett suffered from.
Is Scientology responsible for this tragedy? Had Jett been taking the proper medications he more than likely would not have suffered a seizure. He would probably still be alive. Instead of being cared for by a proper medical facility, Jett underwent Scientology “sec checks” and “auditing” – neither of which involves the treatment he needed for his disease. The Church and its members freely practice medicine without being licensed.
It is heartbreaking that this young man, obviously dependent on others to care for him, was a victim of the insane doctrines and of the cult of Scientology. Scientologists actively perform the exact same treatments on others who suffer from similar diseases. They are doing it right now, in this country.
For all of the Xenu and alien jokes we make about the members of this cult, Jett’s death highlights the true danger involved for anyone who has been brainwashed into the hands of these money-grabbing idiots. I feel very sad for John, Kelly and Jett’s little sister Ella. Maybe this tragedy will open their eyes, and those of others, to the truth about these horrible people- and Jett’s death won’t be in vain.
