The agency is providing special voice-analysis experts to aid the investigation.

The experts will be used to look in to "sensitive" conversations that allegedly took place between Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater and Travolta's attorneys, according to E! News.

The conversations reportedly involved potentially embarrassing documents related to the death of the Travolta's son Jett.

E! News also says that earlier reports that the extortion attempt involved photographs of Jett are untrue.

There are certainly some reports out there speaking to some photos," a Bahamian official told E! News.

"That is 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."

"This matter is still under investigation so I don't intend to get into specifics of the case," the official said.
