The family of beloved comedian and actor Bob Saget has reportedly filed a lawsuit to prevent the release of any and all additional information pertaining to his untimely death last month at a hotel near Orlando, Florida.

“On Tuesday, Saget’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, and three daughters filed a lawsuit against the medical examiner’s office and the Orange County sheriff seeking injunctive relief to prevent the release of any records — including photographs, video and audio recordings, and ‘statutorily protected autopsy information’ — related to his death,” according to ABC News.

The lawsuit reportedly claims that Saget’s family “will suffer irreparable harm in the form of extreme mental pain, anguish, and emotional distress if” records pertaining to his death are released to the press.

The stunning lawsuit was filed days after reports began to emerge that the cause of death was no mere blow to the head, as had been originally reported.

“Bob Saget, the comedian and actor, died after what appeared to be a significant blow to the head, one that fractured his skull in several places and caused bleeding across both sides of his brain, according to an autopsy report released on Friday,” The New York Times reported last Friday.

“Far from a head bump that might have been shrugged off, the autopsy described an unmistakably serious set of injuries that would at the very least have probably left someone confused, brain experts said.”

These findings seem to contradict his family’s claim that he’d merely hit his head, “thought nothing of it and went to sleep.”

The Times did admit that if Saget had “struck his head hard enough, and in just the wrong place, it is possible that fractures would have extended to other parts of his skull,” thus leading to his death.

But again, that would arguably amount to more than just a blow to the head. And indeed, in a statement to the Times, Houston Methodist Neurological Institution director Dr. Gavin Britz said this sort of “significant trauma” is most often seen with “someone with a baseball bat to the head, or who has fallen from 20 or 30 feet.”

Regarding the second theory, however, the Times noted that the autopsy “found no injuries to other parts of Mr. Saget’s body, as would be expected in a lengthier fall.”

Britz isn’t the only doctor who’s taken note of the oddities surrounding Saget’s death:

The doctor who actually performed the autopsy, medical examiner Dr. Joshua Stephany, for his part claimed there’s “no evidence of drug use or foul play.”

But Stephany’s conclusion hasn’t stopped the public from speculating. Even Richard E. Signorelli, a far-leftist who once served as Assistant U.S. Attorney for the SDNY but these days spends his time tweeting about the “GQP,” find Saget’s death suspicious.

Here’s what he tweeted over the weekend:

In fairness to him and other skeptical souls, the now-emerging bombshell that Saget’s family is trying to hide the details of his death does suggest there’s more to the story:
