Bob Saget's Cause Of Death Revealed Weeks After 'Full House' Alum's Shocking Passing: Report
Bob Saget's cause of death has been revealed — and it's not a heart attack or stroke as authorities previously suspected.
The beloved comedian reportedly died of a brain bleed. According to sources via TMZ, the Full House star likely hit his head on an unknown object sometime after checking into his room at the Ritz Carlton Hotel after a comedy show in Jacksonville.
Medical examiners are said to have found a bruise on the back of his head during the autopsy and assume the comic went to sleep and simply never woke up sometime after sustaining the unexpectedly fatal injury.
As OK! previously reported, Saget's body was found "tucked in bed" with his luggage by the door by hotel staff on Sunday afternoon, January 9. Law enforcement found no evidence of foul play or substance abuse, and the medical examination confirmed that he had no alcohol or drugs in his system.

No drugs or alcohol were involved."
