Witnesses reveal interactions with Bob Saget hours before his death

Comedian Bob Saget’s untimely death in January shocked the world, and the mysterious circumstances surrounding his passing have puzzled fans ever since.

Now, several witnesses have come forward to shed some light on the final days and hours of Saget’s life. 

Mysterious death

Saget was found dead in a hotel room on January 9th, and Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Joshua Stephany determined that his death was caused by blunt head trauma and that drugs and alcohol were not involved.

Stephany could not exactly pinpoint when the injury occurred, but “believed it was probably within hours of his death, possibly within a day or two, depending on several medical factors.”

Witnesses were interviewed by Cpl. Brian Meadows after the results of Saget’s postmortem examination was completed by Stephany. The unusual nature of Saget’s injury and circumstances led Stephany to advise Meadows that Saget “would have exhibited significant signs that something was wrong” prior to his death.

In order to “establish a possible time frame,” Meadows sought individuals that interacted with Saget “in the days immediately preceding his death.”

Witnesses spill the beans

Witness statements corroborated the initial finding that neither drugs nor alcohol played a role in Saget’s demise, and confirmed that Saget did not appear to be distressed the evening before his death.

Fox News reported:

None of the witnesses recalled Saget having any alcohol before the show at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on the night of Jan. 8. The only beverages Saget requested were Diet Coke, Coke and Red Bull, according to Richard Stanford, whose job was to “arrange hospitality, equipment, labor for setup/tear down” and anything else required for the show.

Elizabeth Glascow, business manager for the St.  John’s County Cultural Events Division, observed Saget before, during, and after the show he performed in the night before his death, and said that he did not appear “stoned or drunk or anything like that.”

Rosalie Ann Cocci, a worker at the show, said that Saget did not appear out of sorts in any way. According to Cocci, Saget “wasn’t sweaty, he didn’t miss a beat, he didn’t stutter, his language wasn’t drawn out, nothing slurred,” though he did mention that he had told her he was recovering from “long COVID” and had been “sick the night before.”

Hospitality manager Richard Stanford said that Saget’s “train of thought” was just “weird, stepping on himself a little bit,” but that “at no point did I think anything was wrong. He chatted with everyone … He had a good time talking with everyone.”

Orlando Nunez, one of the last individuals to see Saget alive, told Meadows that “he just seemed fine” as he helped Saget with his rental car at the Ritz-Carlton following the show. “Nothing seemed out of the ordinary,” he explained.
