ORLANDO, Florida – Comedian and actor Bob Saget was found dead lying face down on his bed in a luxury Florida hotel room with no signs of trauma, according to a report from the Sheriff’s Office on Monday.

There was no sign of foul play and the room itself was in order, “with items belonging to Mr. Saget on the bedside table, TV cabinet, closet and bathroom”, according to the report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

The county medical examiner’s office said the autopsy was performed on Monday morning.

“At this time, there is no evidence of drug use or criminal activity,” wrote Chief Medical Examiner Joshua Stephany.

The official cause and mode of death are still pending and the full investigation and autopsy report could take 10 to 12 weeks.

Saget’s left arm was on his chest and his right arm was resting on his bed when MPs and paramedics arrived at his room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando on Sunday and pronounced him dead, according to the sheriff’s office report.

Saget was scheduled to vacate his room on Sunday and, when his family members were unable to contact him, they contacted the hotel’s security team, who sent a security guard to his room, according to the report from the sheriff.

When security guard, Jody Lee Harrison, entered the room, all the lights were off. He found Saget on the bed and cold to the touch, Harrison told MPs, according to the report.

Harrison checked Saget’s breathing and pulse, and when he couldn’t find any, he asked hotel security to call 911, according to the report.

“We have an unresponsive guest in a room,” an unidentified man from the hotel said when calling 911. “Not answering. No breathing and no pulse.”

Saget was pronounced dead shortly before 4:20 p.m. ET. His room key indicated that he entered the room shortly before 2:20 a.m. ET, according to the report.

His body was sent to the local medical examiner’s office.

Saget was best known for his role as beloved single father, Danny Tanner, on the sitcom “Full House” and as the sarcastic host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos”. He was 65 years old.
