FREEPORT, Bahamas (AP) — Actor John Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, have returned to Florida with the remains of their 16-year-old son, Jett, who died at the family vacation home in Grand Bahama.
The couple received an urn with his ashes and left the island chain on Monday night, according to Obie Wilchcombe, a member of the Bahamas parliament and a family friend.
“Everything was in place, the cremation was completed, and they decided to leave,” Wilchcombe said Tuesday. He said the family is back in Ocala, Fla., where they have a home.
Doctors in the Bahamas performed an autopsy on Jett on Monday but did not release results. However, a Bahamas undertaker said the teen’s death certificate had “seizure” as the cause of death.
Jett Travolta had a history of seizures and was found unconscious Friday in a bathroom.
The body was in “great condition,” said Glen Campbell, assistant director of the Bahamas funeral home that handled Jett’s remains, though police officials had said the teen hit his head on a bathtub.
Funeral plans have not been announced.
