Ash Evidence In John Travolta Case

One of the defendants in the John Travolta extortion case burned a key document, it has been claimed.

Bahaman police officer Detective Deborah Thompson testified yesterday (08.10.09) that Senator Pleasant Bridgewater - one of two people alleged to have demanded £18 million from the actor following his 16-year-old son Jett's death in January - told police she has destroyed a form with the star's signature "after she noticed the situation was about to explode".

John and his wife Kelly Preston had wanted Jett to be flown back to the US after he suffered a seizure at their family home on January 2 and the form would have released the ambulance driver from liability.

Jett was eventually taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Detective Thompson said she had searched the senator's office when the defendant said she would not find the document because she had burned it and flushed it down the toilet at her house. Police then searched Bridgewater's home and took a candle as evidence.

The 'Pulp Fiction' actor has previously testified that ambulance driver Tarino Lightbourne - Bridgewater's co-accused - had threatened to sell stories to the media suggesting he was to blame for his son's death.

Both he and Bridgewater - who is accused of negotiating on Lightbourne's behalf - have pleaded not guilty to charges of attempting to extort and conspiring to extort by means of threats.

The case continues.
