Bob Saget Cause of Death Blunt Head Trauma According to Medical Examiner

Bob Saget died from blunt force trauma to the head … this according to the Orange County Florida Medical Examiner.

“It is in my opinion that the death of Robert Saget, a 65-year-old white male found unresponsive in a hotel room, is the result of blunt head trauma. It is the most probable that the decedent suffered an unwitnessed fall backwards and struck the posterior aspect of his head. The manner of death is accident,” the statement from Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Joshua D. Stephany said in his report.

The report noted that a PCR test showed that Saget, 65, was also positive for Covid-19.

The autopsy also noted he had an enlarged heart; 95% blocked on one side.

No alcohol was present in his system, according to the report. However, the report stated, his systems contained Clonazepam/Klonopin which is taken for seizures, panic disorders and anxiety. Additionally, the antidepressant Trazodone was found in Saget’s system, the report said.

The M.E. went on to say, “A toxicology analysis did not reveal any illicit drugs or toxins. The manner of death is accident.”

Bob was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando earlier this month, and the original operating theory was he died of either stroke or a heart attack.

We’ve been told authorities don’t know what object Bob hit with his head, but the back of his head featured an obvious bruise … and officials think Bob didn’t know how badly he was injured.

Bob was buried at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills.

Bob’s family says … “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.”
