Bob Saget’s cause of death remains unknown; however, drugs and foul play have both been ruled out of the investigation.

Saget was found dead at age 65 in his hotel room in Orange County, Florida. On Monday, an autopsy was performed on Saget as part of the investigation into his death.

Chief Medical Examiner Joshua Stephany told CNN, “At this time, there is no evidence of drug use or foul play.

His cause of death is still under investigation, and it may take up to three months for studies to be complete. However, details have emerged about the Full House star’s last moments.

Less than 24 hours before his death, Saget wrote about performing a 2-hour show in the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, Jacksonville.

The late comic wrote: “I’m back in comedy like I was when I was 26,” noting how he was “loving every moment of it.

The 65-year-old comedian felt good enough to schedule several other shows this month, making his death unexpected and shocking.

Bob Saget found lying with hand on his chest

The Full House star was reportedly found by a Ritz-Carlton Hotel security staffer who was sent to his room after his family couldn’t get hold of the star.

TMZ claims to have obtained documents from deputies who found Saget lying face-up on the hotel bed with his left arm across his chest.

The hotel security staffer said the actor was “cold to the touch” when he was checked for signs of life.

Saget was pronounced dead on the scene, and the lights in his hotel room were reportedly off.

According to the TMZ report, Bob Saget went into the hotel room less than two hours after his last social media post. The post was a selfie from the stage following his performance at 12:42 Am — he entered his room at 2:17, according to the publication.

Several social media sleuths have inferred that Saget’s cause of death was a heart attack, but this is yet to be confirmed.
