The FBI is lending a hand or, more accurately, an ear into the alleged extortion plot involving John Travolta and Kelly Preston, with special voice-analysis experts assisting Bahamas police with the case, E! News exclusively reported last night.

The specialists were needed, law-enforcement sources said, because the police inquiry is now centering on “sensitive” phone conversations that allegedly took place between Travolta lawyers and Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater, who quit her parliament post Saturday after being charged last week with abetment and conspiracy to extort.

The conversations concerned documents obtained by ambulance driver Tarino Lightbourne, the paramedic who claimed he was present when 16-year-old Jett Travolta died Jan. 2. Senior Assistant Commissioner of Police Marvin Dame said the documents are currently in police possession.

According to E! sources, Lightbourne, who pleaded not guilty yesterday to attempted extortion and conspiracy, believed that the mystery documents would have caused embarrassment to the Travoltas and possibly left them open to criticism and questioning over how they addressed the seizure that resulted in Jett’s death.

Dame also said that rumors about damaging photos being at the center of the extortion plot are “incorrect.”

“We are talking specifically about a document that the alleged accused purported to have in his possession and was using that document to extort a substantial sum of moneys from the victim, Mr. Travolta,” said the top cop. “This matter is still under investigation so I don’t intend to get into specifics of the case.”
