Judge Blocks Release of Bob Saget’s Autopsy Records After Actor Was Found Dead with Fracture at Base of Skull and Fractures Around his Eye Sockets
A Florida judge permanently blocked the release of photos, video and records in the investigation into actor Bob Saget’s death.
Saget had suffered a fracture at the base of his skull AND fractures around his eye sockets when he was found dead in his hotel room in January.
The family earlier released a statement saying, “They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it, and went to sleep.” … That explanation does not explain the fractured eye sockets.
The New York Post reported:
A Florida judge on Monday agreed to an order that permanently blocks the release of photos, video and other records connected to the investigation of Bob Saget’s death.
The permanent injunction, granted by Circuit Judge Vincent Chiu, had been requested by the comedian’s family.
The 65-year-old actor died on Jan. 9 after suffering “blunt head trauma,” likely from a fall backward, at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes in Florida, an autopsy has revealed.
Saget suffered a fracture at the base of his skull, fractures around his eye sockets, a cut to his scalp, and bleeding between the brain and tissue covering the brain, according to an autopsy report.
His death was ruled accidental.
