The news that John Travolta's 16 year old son Jett died mysteriously in the Bahamas last Friday was certainly intriguing. The medical examiner has listed the cause of death as a seizure.
Even though the autopsy is complete, the death investigation finished, and the teen's body cremated, news organizations continue to probe about what led to his death. Foul play is not suspected.
The coverage begs the question, as with so many celebrity situations, whose business is this? Should reporters continue to press for more information about the death?
Perhaps it's because it is hard to imagine anything more tragic than the death of a child that makes people so interested in this story. It's also why perhaps the media may be better served to leave the grieving family to the heartbreaking task of burying a child.
Do you think the extreme coverage is fair and warranted?
