Sad News: Dr. Dre's Son Andre & John Travolta's Son Jett

The autopsy report details were released today about Dr. Dre's son Andre Young, Jr. and his death 4 months ago.  As suspected, no foul play was involved.  But Andre did die of a heroin and morphine overdose.  According to People, Young, 20, was found unresponsive by his mother, Jenita Porter, in their Woodland Hills, Calif. home on the morning of Aug. 23. In breaking news, John Travolta's 16 year old son Jett has died while the family was on Holiday vacation in the Bahamas.  Reports state that Jett, who the Travoltas deny had Autism but actually lived with Kawasaki disease, fell and hit his head on the bathtub and suffered a seizure.  He reportedly died on the scene.  Sad news for the Travolta family.  R.I.P.

I can't blame the Travoltas;

I can't blame the Travoltas; everyone has a right to treat themselves and their children according to their belief system -- sometimes medical treatment is far more damaging than the disease itself. As for Andre Young, very, very sad. To lose a child so young for nothing will take the family a long time to get over. Unfortunately, morphine is the new high and people are just slipping away from it -- like Corinne Bailey's husband. Morphine cannot be mixed with anything. How he got his hands on that is the question though. Be on the look out for the next new killer: fetanyl

I agree with everyone who

I agree with everyone who says that Jett was autistic. Even people who met him said that they were sure that he had autisim. Scientologists believe that autistic people "will" the disorder on themselves and that they are less than everyone else. How can you be part of a "religion" that thinks that way? That's just SICK if you ask me. And John seemed to be ashamed of Jett (IMO). When asked questions about him he would change the subject to his daughter Ella. I lost so much respect for him because of that.

[quote comment="364808"]Sad, sad, sad, No disrespect, but I'm wondering why Travolta's son wasn't on holiday vacation with them? I know families with children with severe disabilities some times need a break but wow.[/quote] Reading is fundamental. He died in the Bahamas which is where his family was. Better question is where was the caregiver who found him? How does a child go into the bathroom late Thursday, but you don't find him until the next morning? Why had no one checked on that child when it's obvious he had physical and mental disabilities?

They are both pain killers and depressants. His body probably slowed down so much, he just slipped away. He probably did not feel any pain.[/quote] If they in the same family, it's most likely he overdosed because you can't take one medicine with one reactant and another with the same reactant.That's this general science.I was looking on the boy's myspace and I'm not judging, but the kids he hanged out with looked like they on some ecstasy or something.

Lawd, regardless of how a child passes, as my mother always says it is not the natural order of things. She always says having seen my grandmother bury her 1st born killed her heart.. My heart goes out to both families. There children are safe with the God!!!

That's sad news about both

That's sad news about both Dre and the Travolta's son. It was known that Travolta's son was autistic and had seizures...but because the goofballs that are practicing scientologists don't "recognize" either...I am sure that the lack of treatment could have had alot more to do with Jett's death, then they are willing to admit to. The lord knows, I hope I am wrong...but God might have had to step in and take that innocent child of that bad situation. Holla!

[quote comment="364602"]It's so sad and tragic for both families. But I did want to comment on the Travolta case because it was widely known the boy had autism but John and his wife were in denial due to their Scientologist beliefs and claimed his illness was the result of a rare syndrome. Like the poster above me said, the boy didn't receive the care and treatment he needed because his parents wouldn't acknowledge a problem existed.[/quote] I've worked with adults with autism for many years, and I know you can't diagnose someone by just looking at them, but looking at the picture, the son has the "face" and they tend to walk on their tiptoes...he looks like many of the clients I worked with...I don't know anything about Kawasaki disease and if the physical symptoms are similar.

[quote comment="364558"]I was just on US Weekly and they were reporting about Dr. Dre's son's tragic death. The pic of his son on UsMagazine.com looks like Dr. Dre almost TO THE LETTER. They have the same facial features and everything. It could be the same person, but this picture that you have up, doesn't look like Dr. Dre at all to me. Seriously, go check out the pic over at US Weekly of Dr. Dre's son against this pic in this post and you be the judge.[/quote] Thats exactly what Im saying, Ive seen hella pics of him even on his myspace, yet everyone is showing this pic..thats not him! Google him.

Kawasaki disease, also known

Kawasaki disease, also known as lymph node syndrome, mucocutaneous node disease, infantile polyarteritis and Kawasaki syndrome, is a poorly understood self-limited vasculitis that affects many organs, including the skin and mucous membranes, lymph nodes, blood vessel walls, and the heart. It does not seem to be contagious. It was first described in 1967 by Dr. Tomisaku Kawasaki in Japan. By far, the highest incidence of Kawasaki disease occurs in Japan (175 per 100,000), though its incidence in the United States is increasing. Kawasaki disease is predominantly a disease of young children, with 80% of patients younger than 5 years of age. The disease affects boys more than girls. Approximately 2000-4000 cases are identified in the United States each year. The causative agent of Kawasaki disease is still unknown,[4] but current theories center primarily on immunological causes for the disease. Evidence increasingly points to an infectious etiology, but debate continues on whether the cause is a conventional antigenic substance or a superantigen.[5] Per a Children's Hospital Boston / Harvard Medical school information page on the disease, "Some studies have found associations between the occurrence of Kawasaki disease and recent exposure to carpet cleaning or residence near a body of stagnant water; however, cause and effect have not been established."
