The famous interpreter of Danny Tanner in La Fête à la maison, was he murdered? The day after a performance in Jacksonville, Fla., Bob Saget was found dead in his Orlando hotel room on Sunday, January 9, 2022. If authorities believed he died of a heart attack, that’s in an autopsy report it was recently stated that the actor actually hit his head on something and died of a cerebral hemorrhage. In a statement, his family said at the time, “Now that we have the final findings of the authorities’ investigation, we believe it’s only fitting that fans hear these findings directly from us. Authorities have determined that Bob is died of head trauma. They concluded he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, didn’t think about it, and fell asleep.”
While his death was ruled an accident without suspicion of foul play, Dr. Gavin Britz, chief of neurosurgery at Houston Methodist Hospital, remains perplexed by the report. Interviewed by the New York Times, he said: “It’s a significant trauma. It’s something you could find with someone who was beaten with a baseball bat in the head, or who fell 20 or 30 meters.” The doctor also assured that the actor’s fractures were not only generalized, but “that they were located in particularly thick parts of his skull.” For his part, Byron York, chief political correspondent of the Washington Examiner, wrote on Twitter: “It’s really strange. We question the thoroughness of the initial investigation!” While investigators have ruled it an accident, attorney Richard Signorelli has also suggested there may have been foul play involved in Bob Saget’s disappearance. “No foul found. Something just doesn’t make sense given his serious head injuries,” he wrote.
Bob Saget dies aged 65
A few days earlier, it was on Instagram that the actor’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, expressed herself. With emotion, she had thus shared: “A month without this incredible man. Bob really lived his life to the full. He had so many difficulties over the years that he always told me: ‘Look, life is hard, he make the most of it.’ (…) Experiencing simple pleasures in life like that brought him so much joy. I can’t even say how much I’m going to miss it.”
