ORLANDO, Florida. Comedian and actor Bob Saget was found dead on his bed in a luxury Florida hotel room with no sign of trauma, according to a report released Monday by the sheriff’s office.

There was no sign of foul play and the room itself was fine, “with items belonging to Mr. Saget on the bedside table, TV stand, closet and bathroom,” according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office report.

Saget’s left arm was across his chest and his right arm was resting on his bed when MPs and paramedics arrived at his room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando on Sunday and pronounced him dead, the report said.

Saget was scheduled to check out of his room on Sunday, and when family members couldn’t reach him, they contacted the hotel’s security team, who dispatched a security guard to his room, the report said.

When security officer Jody Lee Harrison walked into the room, all the lights were out. He found Saget on the bed, “cold to the touch. yellow and clammy, “said Harrison according to the report to the MPs.


Harrison checked Saget for breathing and pulse, and when he found none, he called 911 for hotel security, the report said.

Saget was best known for his role as beloved single father Danny Tanner on the sitcom “Full House” and as the hilarious host of America’s Funniest Home Videos. He was 65 years old.
