Pleasant Bridgewater, a former Bahamian senator, met with Travolta's attorney to discuss payment for a copy of the document, a waiver of medical treatment that the actor signed after his 16-year-old son Jett suffered a fatal seizure, according to People magazine. Three days after the meeting, cops arrested Bridgewater, who according to a police report, admitted she had destroyed the copy after the case heated up. She set fire to it with a candle and then flushed the ashes, according to a police report made public at the trial.
Bridgewater and a former paramedic are on trial for allegedly attempting to extort $25 million from Travolta to keep quiet the fact that he signed the waiver. Travolta testified last week.
It is not known where the original document is.
