According to officials, Jett was prone to seizures and must have had one in the bathroom and hit his head on the tub.  No official cause of death has been released but 2 experts have been brought in to perform the autopsy.

Apparently, the family was on their regular vacation in the Bahamas when the tragedy occured.  Jett is John’s eldest and is known to be very close to his father.  Though John and Kelly Preston have not made any statements, friends close to the family say that both parents are devastated.  There had been previous rumors that Jett was autistic.  However, John and Kelly clarified that their son acquired Kawasaki Disease when he was 2 years old, which explains their son’s weak health.

The official autopsy report is expected to be released by Monday.
