FREEPORT, Bahamas -- John Travolta and Kelly Preston are going to have the body of their son, Jett, cremated in the Bahamas, according to Radar Online.
Keith McSweeney, the funeral director for Restview Mortuary, told Radar that Jett’s ashes will be flown back to Florida within the next 24 hours.
According to Radar, Jett’s father, John, will be flying the plane carrying the ashes of his son – who died on Friday at the age of 16.
Earlier in the day on Monday, it was revealed the cause of death listed on the teen’s death certificate was “seizure.”
Although it was initially thought that Jett had died after suffering a seizure and hitting his head on the bathtub inside the bathroom of the family’s residence at the Old Bahama Bay, an official at Restview reportedly told The Associated Press that Jett’s body showed no signs of head trauma.
Glen Campbell, the assistant director of the Bahamian funeral home, said Jett’s body was in “great condition,” despite police officials who had said the teen hit his head on a bathtub.
The results of the autopsy performed on Monday have not been released, however, Campbell said had viewed the death certificate.
“The only cause of death that was listed was ‘seizure’,” Campbell told the AP.
It has been reported the Travolta family is planning a funeral for Jett near their home in Ocala, Florida.
