One month after beloved actor Bob Saget was found dead in his hotel room, his family released a statement revealing the cause of his death.
The 65-year-old “Full House” star reportedly died as a result of head trauma, according to the family statement obtained by E! News.
While on a comedy tour stop in Orlando, Fla., Saget was found dead on Jan. 9 in his Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed at the time that there appeared to be no sign of foul play or drug use.
“In the weeks since Bob’s passing, we have been overwhelmed with the incredible outpouring of love from Bob’s fans, which has been a great comfort to us and for which we are eternally grateful,” Saget’s family said on Wednesday.
“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 statement added.
According to the family, authorities determined that the former host of “America’s Funniest Videos” had “accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep.”
The statement added that “no drugs or alcohol were involved.”
Saget is survived by his wife Kelly Rizzo and three daughters whom he shares with his ex-wife Sherri Kramer – Aubrey, 34, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29. Just a day ahead of the tragic end to his life, the actor and comedian had shared his final social media post celebrating a show at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., near Jacksonville.

His family’s statement on Wednesday concluded by reminding his fans of the lessons he taught us all:
“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.”
