According to a report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Saget was found dead lying face up on his bed in a luxury hotel room, there were no signs of trauma.
There were no signs of foul play, and the room itself was in order, “with items owned by Mr. Saget on the nightstand, television stand, closet and bathroom,” according to the report.
Saget’s left arm was across his chest and his right arm was resting on his bed when deputies and paramedics arrived at his room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando and pronounced him dead, the report said.
Saget had been scheduled to check out of his room on Sunday, and when family members were unable to get in touch with him, they contacted the hotel’s security team, which sent a security officer to his room, the report said.
When the security officer, Jody Lee Harrison, entered the room, all the lights were off. He found Saget on the bed and cold to the touch, Harrison told deputies, according to the report.
Harrison checked Saget for breathing and a pulse, and when he found none, he had the hotel’s security dispatch call 911, the report said.
“We have an unresponsive guest in a room,” an unidentified man from the hotel said in a 911 call. “Not responsive. No breathing and no pulse.”
Sagat was declared dead shortly before 4:20 p.m. His room key indicated he had entered the room a little before 2:20 a.m., according to the report.READ MORE: 5-Year-Old Boy Airlifted After Being Bitten By Family Dog
