(Newser) – John Travolta's son died of a seizure, not head trauma, says an undertaker who saw the 16-year-old's death certificate. While autopsy results remain under wraps, mortician Glen Campbell's description may dispel notions that Jett Travolta died by banging his head in a Bahamas hotel bathroom, E! Online reports.

Meanwhile, a decoy hearse arrived at a funeral home as Jett's parents had his body cremated, the AP reports. Travolta and Jett's mother, Kelly Preston, plan to take the ashes to their home in Ocala, Fla. tomorrow.
