Comedian and actor Bob Saget fell asleep after hitting his head. The forensic report reveals that he died of a ‘cerebral hemorrhage’.
Saget, who was for some years one of the stars of the television series Full House (An almost perfect home) passed away exactly one month ago, on January 9.
An autopsy performed on Bob Saget’s body shortly after his death, at a Florida hotel, found no signs of violence or drugs.
According to entertainment news site TMZ, sources with “direct knowledge” said Saget’s head was hit with something after checking into his room at the Orlando Ritz-Carlton on Jan. 9 and, unaware of the extent of his injury, fell asleep.
He died of “cerebral hemorrhage.” According to TMZ, there was “an obvious bruise” on the back of his head.
The comedian’s family provided the following statement to Stephanie Ruehle Reports producer Lauren Peikoff, who tweeted a few minutes ago: “Authorities have determined that Bob passed away from head trauma. They came to the conclusion that he accidentally hit the back of his neck with something, didn’t think about it, and went to sleep. There were no drugs or alcohol involved.”
The Page Six website also tried unsuccessfully to communicate with Saget’s communications team. After confirming Saget’s death, police shared that there were no signs of foul play or drugs at the scene.
Saget is survived by his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and three daughters from a previous marriage, Aubrey Saget, Lara Melanie Saget, and Jennifer Belle Saget.
