In yet another blow for grief-stricken John Travolta, a key witness is set to claim a stunning cover-up in the death of Travolta’s son Jett, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.
Paramedic Marcus Garvey, who accompanied the autistic teen on his final journey to the hospital, is breaking his nine-month silence to testify in the trial of two Bahamians accused of trying to blackmail Travolta for $25 million.
Shockingly, he told The ENQUIRER that he plans to divulge under oath that he believes the 16-year-old died as many as seven or eight hours earlier than officially recorded.
Garvey confided he was told the seizure-prone boy collapsed and died after his nannies were off partying.
"The cover-up smells to high heaven," Garvey, 45, told The ENQUIRER in an exclusive interview.
"After 17 years of experience as an EMT, I am sure the boy was dead long before he was found at his parents’ condo, and the fight to save him was over before it began
"Jett should never have left there in an ambulance – he should have been in a hearse."
Garvey, who received EMT training in the U.S., revealed he’s going to be called by the defense in the Nassau, Bahamas, trial.
He was the shift supervisor of the Bahamian government ambulance service, and following a 911 call from the Travolta condo, he and his boss took over from a less experienced ambulance crew halfway to the hospital in Freeport.
The seasoned paramedic says he knew almost immediately that Jett’s life was long past saving.
"When we took over, I opened the boy’s eyes and shined a light to gauge pupil reaction," he told The ENQUIRER. "The pupils were fully dilated and fixed, indicating he was dead. His body was cold and rigor mortis had set in.
"Pooling of the blood in part of the body told me he had been dead seven or eight hours."
