Bob Saget, actor and comedian, died in a hotel room in Orlando, Florida, last month. And a month later, his family revealed the cause of his death: head trauma.
“The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma,” said the Saget family in a statement. “They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it, and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.”
The Saget Family continued that they have been “overwhelmed with the incredible outpouring of love” from his fans and added that the support has been “a great comfort” to them.
“Now that we have the final conclusions from the authorities’ investigation, we felt it only proper that the fans hear those conclusions directly from us,” the family continued. “As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter.”
The day before his death, Saget performed in Jacksonville. He was on a comedy tour at the time.
The 1990s were an iconic time for Saget, who starred on “Full House” as the father Danny Tanner and in “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
From 2005 to 2014, he played a role in “How I Met Your Mother” as the narrator and returned as Danny Tanner between 2016 and 2020 on the Netflix show “Fuller House,” which is a reboot of “Full House.” Saget also frequently appeared in one-time or recurring roles in TV shows and films, playing himself or a parody of himself.
Florida’s Orange County Sheriff stated that deputies were asked to come to the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando after the body of an unresponsive man was found in one of its rooms.
The police identified the dead body to be Saget. Authorities have said that he was dead on the scene, with no signs of foul play or drug use.
