However, by the end of the weekend, Saget was found dead in bed in his hotel room on January 9, which raised many questions about how he could have lost his life so suddenly.

The mystery deepened when Medical Examiner Joshua Stephany later revealed at autopsy that Bob鈥檚 death was 鈥渢he result of blunt force trauma,鈥 ruling that the manner of his death was an accident not linked to any illicit drugs or toxins.
