Ray Liotta’s family are flying his body home via private jet from the Dominican Republic.
The ‘Goodfellas’ actor, 67, died in his sleep at a county hotel while filming his latest film.
An employee of the Dominican funeral home, Funeraria Blandino, in the Dominican capital, Santo Domingo, said DailyMail.com“The body is now always with us. We have everything ready to send immediately and are awaiting final instructions from the family.
Plans were initially to send the deceased actor home to America tomorrow (30.05.22.)
But given the challenges of getting a body through customs over the weekend on a commercial airline, the family now arranges to have a private jet,
The funeral home worker added: ‘Hopefully we can get the plane today. I just know we have to be ready. I’m ready with the paperwork. Normally we take a few days longer. But they are very important people.
Liotta was already dead when paramedics arrived at the Casa del XVI hotel in Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone, with a source saying his fiancée Jacy Nittolo, 47, called 911 around 6 a.m. Thursday (26.05 .22.)
Toxicology results are expected this week, but authorities have ruled out foul play in his death.
Liotta was in the country to shoot the movie “Dangerous Waters” with Eric Dane, Odeya Rush and Saffron Burrows.
The plan to bring his remains home comes after Liotta’s fiancée, who returned to Los Angeles on Friday (27.05.22), broke her silence over his death with a tribute.
She said on her Instagram: “My life for the past two years has been nothing short of magical.
“Ray and I share a deep love that I will treasure in my heart forever. We laughed every day and we were inseparable. The chemistry was wild in the best way. He was everything in the world to me and we couldn’t get enough one of the other.
