#11, You read too many gossip rags. There was never an ongoing investigation into Jett's death. The autopsy took place 3 days after his death ,hardly quick. Nobody denied Jett had head trauma,just that it was ruled out as the cause of death. Also there are many illnesses that cause seizures. Unless you are the Travolta's doctor ,there is no way you know anything,how could you. So ,to avoid looking stupid in the future,stick to the facts. Rumors and speculation serve no purpose here.
