'As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world,' Bob Saget's family said
Celebrity comedian and 'Full House' star Bob Saget tragically died on January 9, 2022, at the age of 65 years. He died at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Orlando, Florida where the security found Saget dead after he failed to check out on time. Police initially suspected that Bob Saget had "suffered a heart attack or stroke," following his battle with Covid-19. However, the latest reports have confirmed that it was actually an injury and internal hemorrhage that caused Saget's tragic death last month.
According to the reports, Saget checked into the Ritz Carlton Hotel on January 9 and accidentally hit his head on a hard object. While authorities are still uncertain about what object he hit, they are suspecting that Saget dashed against the headboard by accident. A distinct bruise was also discovered at the back of his head later. It is suspected that Bob Saget failed to perceive the severity of his injury and went to sleep. He eventually died in his sleep from a brain bleed. Contrary to earlier speculations, the toxicology reports showed no signs of narcotics or alcohol in his system.
Insider sources revealed to TMZ that Saget performed at a gig at a comedy club in Jacksonville, Florida, on January 9. He then drove to the Ritz Orlando and checked in around 2 AM. His body was discovered by the hotel security at 4 PM that day.
Bob Saget's family and wife Kelly Rizzo has issued a statement confirming the cause of his death. The statement reads, "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 authorities have determined that Bob passed away from head trauma. 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 family mourned the beloved star's death, noting, "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."
