Re: Charges Filed! Dateline Bahamas - Senior Pol Charged with Extortion! I'm not sure what you're getting at with all of this. The kid had a seizure causing him to fall and hit his head. It was the head trauma that killed him, not the seizure. This is one of the few parts of this whole mess that isn't odd or unclear. The FBI was never investigating the Travoltas. They just offered the prosecution help with the gathering and analyzing of evidence for the extortion case.
