Eh, scientologist or not, it's sad when your child dies at the age of sixteen.

Just goes to show that money can do a lot, but it can't do a thing when it really counts. Thank whatever deity you want to thank for you and your families health in 09.

The Scientology comment is valid when it may have directly had a bearing on the son's condition. I guess that has to make it all the harder - the denial, the grief. Hoping they find some sort of solace.

On the upside, the page brought me to the celebrity mugshots where I ran across this classic. RIP indeed.

I can only imagine the pain in losing a child. I hope the media stays out of this one.

My nephew had Kawasaki Syndrome and was lucky enough to make a full recovery from it. It is obviously very serious. My sister (the mom) actually did her Masters in micro-biology on the one of the main cells in Kawasaki Syndrome. The poor diagnosis of the doctors (it took months and finally a med-student figured it out) was one of the main reasons she entered Med school.

Dr. Dre's son was found dead at age 20.

What's the saying--that celebrities' children always die in threes?

Travolta may be a major d-bag and j-off, but I do not wish the death of a child on anyone.

The moment I heard autopsy and cremation within 48 hours of sudden death in a 3-rd world country. I thought to myself these nice people are trying to hide something.

Probably took their son off meds and that killed him.

Now they r arresting people and pressing charges for alleged blackmail, sounds to me they had done something illegal and silencing people who know about it.

Very shady story, but hey the head of the family has a lot of money and made a bunch of ****** movies in 80s, so they will come out clean.

BTW, anyone knows how Mr Travolta made his millions?

I don't think anything is shady. I read that the people who took the pictures took them when John Travolta was holding his son in his arms right before death, then demanded millions from the family or else they would sell them to the highest bidder.

That's what he gets for having a father who stole the face of another man.
