Police suspect actor and comedian Bob Saget suffered ‘a heart attack or stroke’ in his Orlando hotel room on Sunday.
According to TMZ, the 65-year-old comedian was found dead in a hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton by housekeeping and security at around 4 pm Sunday afternoon.
Bob Saget was found lying face up on the bed, cold to the touch with his arm on his chest, a position that law enforcement say is consistent with a heart attack.
Saget seemed fine Saturday night and early Sunday morning after his 2 hour show in Jacksonville at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.
Loved tonight’s show @PV_ConcertHall in Jacksonville. Appreciative audience. Thanks again to @RealTimWilkins for opening. I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I’m happily addicted again to this shit. Check https://t.co/nqJyTiiezU for my dates in 2022. pic.twitter.com/pEgFuXxLd3

Bob Saget said he got the Covid booster on November 28.
I went to the dumbest pharmacist yesterday and asked for my booster and he gave me a child’s seat. I was pissed until I sat at the table and was a foot taller.

Saget was triple vaxxed, but cops are investigating his revelation that he recently battled Covid and whether the China virus caused blood clots.
The Daily Mail reported:
Cops suspect Full House legend Bob Saget ‘suffered a heart attack or stroke’ in his Orlando hotel and are exploring his revelation days before his death that he had recently battled Covid-19.
Authorities believe Saget, 65, may have suffered a medical emergency because they found no evidence of foul play or drug use and have not yet carried out a toxicology report, law enforcement sources told TMZ.
DailyMail.com revealed yesterday that Saget was found lying face-up on his bed ‘cold to the touch… His left arm was across his chest while his right arm was resting on the bed’. Sources told TMZ the position could be consistent with signs of a heart attack.
Cops are also investigating Saget’s revelation during a podcast recording last week that he had recently battled Covid-19 and whether the virus may have caused blood clots or another side effect that played a part in his death on Sunday.
In an appearance on ‘A Corporate Time with Tom & Dan’, Saget revealed he had recently battled Covid-19. He did not say exactly when he caught the virus, but mentioned the Omicron variant which was only discovered at the end of November, meaning his must have been infected in recent weeks.
Saget described Covid as ‘not good’ but later joked about dying from the virus in an apparent bid to drum up interest in his 2022 stand-up tour.
A medical exam with a definitive cause of death will take 10-12 weeks to complete.
