Bob Saget: According to a study released Tuesday that reveals new details about his death. The comedian struck “something hard, covered by something soft. It can include a carpeted floor, which caused fractures around his eye sockets and bleeding around his brain. Chief Medical Examiner Joshua Stephany said the fractures would have surprised Mr. Saget. Also, he would have suffered disorientation, according to an incident report issued by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Orlando.
Bob Saget: Different Speculations For Injuries
According to the study, people would have noticed “confusion, balance, and slurred speech” if he had been with them at the time. It doesn’t say where Saget fell, but Stephany informed the investigator that with that kind of injury, Bob Saget wouldn’t have been able to make the two-hour journey from Jacksonville to Orlando the night before discovering his death.
After an examination in January, the medical examiner ruled that Saget died due to an accidental hit to the head; most likely from a backward fall. According to investigators, there was no indication of a struggle, foul play. There was also no indication that anybody else was in Saget’s suite during his stay. A toxicology report revealed no illegal substances.
The Incident Report
On Jan 9, a hotel security officer discovered the entertainer in his hotel room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando. After he kept forgetting out of the facility, his family had requested a well-being check. Saget’s suite door had been closed from the inside, so they called a hotel maintenance man to open it. Even though the door between Saget’s suite and the next room was open, data from the hotel’s electronic locks revealed nobody had been in the adjoining room since Jan 7; two days before Saget’s body was discovered, according to the report.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office detective interrogated venue staff in Orlando and Jacksonville about Saget’s behavior during his musical engagements there as part of the investigation. According to the investigation, the five colleagues described the comedian as friendly, outgoing, and without symptoms of impairment. Bob Saget talked and took a photo with a vehicle attendant at the Ritz Carlton after heading back to Orlando from Jacksonville at midnight hours before discovering his death. According to the investigation report, the valet stated that Saget appeared fine and saw no indication of slurred speech, stability concerns, or anything that concerned him.
