The photos showed Saget's room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando lined up with the investigator's statements that there was no sign of a struggle when his body was found. The photos also pointed to the report by the medical examiner that Saget died from an accidental blow to the head.

While some fans have nonetheless continued to speculate the circumstances surrounding Saget’s tragic death, the "Full House" star's family released a statement via their attorney Brian H. Bieber.

"The records released tell the entire story – that is – Bob passed away after a fall and hitting his head in his hotel room,” Bieber said, per People. “Now that the medical examiner's and police department's records have been released after their respective thorough investigations, the Saget family would appreciate privacy to mourn in peace."

The local police’s final report further included interview recollections from those who saw Saget hours before his death at his last comedy show.

As Yahoo Entertainment reported, one witness told the police, "I did hear him say, 'I don't feel good, but I'm ready to do the show. This is what I do this for.' He kinda seemed like he was talking himself up. He stated ... it was taking his body a long time to get over [COVID]. ... He said that his hearing had been off and that was the case that night. He was asking the sound guys to turn everything up. He said he had been sick the night before, he said he had a sore throat, that he was happy he had lozenges for the stage."

There is some measure of positive closure in the fact that, for his final show the night of January 8, Saget reportedly had a great time. As that same witness told it, "[Bob] wasn't sweaty, he didn't miss a beat, he didn't stutter, his language wasn't drawn out, nothing slurred. He came out very energetic ...very much entertaining the crowd."

Saget is survived by wife, Kelly Rizzo, and his three daughters, Lara, Aubrey, and Jennifer Saget.
