As the Orange County Sheriff’s Office reports, there were no signs of foul play, and the room itself was in order, “with items owned by Mr. Saget on the nightstand, television stand, closet and bathroom”.

The report said Saget’s left arm was across his chest and his right hand was resting on his bed when deputy and paramedics arrived at his room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando on Sunday and pronounced him dead.

Saget was best known for his role as lovable single dad Danny Tanner in the sitcom “Full House” and as the wise host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos”. He was 65 years old.

The report said that Saget was about to leave his room on Sunday and when family members could not contact him, they contacted the hotel security team, who sent a security officer to his room.

When security officer, Jodie Lee Harrison, entered the room, all the lights were off. Reportedly, Harrison told deputies that he found Saget in bed and cold to the touch.

The report said Harrison checked Saget for breath and pulse, and when he found none, he had a hotel security dispatch call 911.

“We have an unresponsive guest in a room,” an unidentified hotel person said in a 911 call. “Not responsive. Neither breath nor pulse.”

Saget was pronounced dead shortly before 4:20 p.m. ET. Reportedly, his room key indicated that he had entered the room a little before 2:20 p.m. ET.

His body was sent to the local medical examiner’s office, which said in an email that it could take up to four months from the date of the exam to complete an autopsy report.

Saget was in Florida as part of his “I Don’t Do Negative Comedy Tour”. After a warm welcome from onlookers in Orlando on Friday and at the Ponte Vedra beach resort area on Saturday, they celebrated online.

“I’m back in comedy like I was 26. I feel like I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it,” he posted on Instagram on Saturday.

In a statement on Sunday, Saget’s family members said they were “devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today …. Although we ask for privacy at this time, we wish you We invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world.”

The Sheriff’s Office report said hotel management informed Saget’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, of her husband’s death.

Fellow comedians and friends praised Saget not only for his intelligence, but also for his kindness.

“I’m falling apart. I’m so sad. I’m completely and utterly shocked. I’ll never have another friend like him,” wrote John Stamos, who co-starred with Saget on “Full House” Did. “I love you so much Bobby.”
