Obie Wilchcombe, the former Minister of Tourism and a member of the Bahaman parliament, was one of the three arrested. Ironically, he was initially brought to police to help with the case, but officials soon flagged him as a suspicious threat. Whoops!
We’ll see how this pans out. Fortunately, it seems the Travolta family will be able to rest easy that no cold-hearted pictures of a dead Jett will be leaked.
