The investigation into Bob Saget’s cause of death will continue for another 10 to 12 weeks according to medical examiners, but an autopsy completed the day after the actor was found dead revealed he had significant head trauma.

Though no foul play was detected, Orange County Chief Medical Examiner Joshua Stephany told CNN, it remains unclear what happened to cause him to hit his head. The autopsy revealed there were no drugs or alcohol in his system and that he did not take his own life.

It is possible that the 65-year-old comedian accidentally fell or suffered from a heart attack, but the investigation into his apparent head trauma may take two to three months to uncover all the details with certainty.

“The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma. They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep,” a statement from the Full House actor’s family read. “No drugs or alcohol were involved.”

“As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter,” the statement continued. “Now that we have the final conclusions from the authorities’ investigation, we felt it only proper that the fans hear those conclusions directly from us.”

Bob Saget’s family also added that they are “overwhelmed with the incredible outpouring of love from Bob’s fans, which has been a great comfort to us and for which we are eternally grateful.”

There was prior speculation that the actor having Covid-19 in December could have severely impacted his health, but his wife, Kelly Rizzo, said that he wasn’t as sick as reports indicated.

Appearing on Good Morning America, she said that he was seemingly in good health before he died and that his time with Covid-19 was “was not anything serious.”

Recalling their last moment together over the phone, Kelly Rizzo said that “he was just on his way home, or back to his hotel, and he was telling me what a wonderful show he had, and how it was so amazing.”

“It made him so happy to just bring laughter to people,” she continued, “and he was happy and just loving what he did.”

Sharing his last words to her, she revealed that he said, “I love you endlessly,” before she said “I can’t wait to see you tomorrow.”

Bob Saget was supposed to check out of the Ritz-Carlton that Sunday morning following a show, and his family had to call hotel security when he became unreachable. Entering his hotel room, they found the actor unresponsive. Authorities described the room as very neat and “orderly,” with the actor lying face up on the bed.

The Full House star was remembered by the cast in a joint statement released last month, that read: “Bob made us laugh until we cried. Now our tears flow in sadness, but also with gratitude for all the beautiful memories of our sweet, kind, hilarious, cherished Bob. He was a brother to us guys, a father to us girls and a friend to all of us.”

Many members of the cast attended his funeral, held on Jan. 14, alongside famous names such as Dave Chappelle, Jimmy Kimmel, John Mayer, Kathy Griffin, Dave Coulier, Jodie Sweetin, Mary Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, and John Stamos.
