Bob Saget, the US actor-comedian famous for playing the role of Danny Tanner in the sitcom ‘Full House’, is dead.
According to TMZ, sources connected to the comedian, 65, said he passed away on Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orlando.
Law enforcement sources were also quoted as saying that they responded to a call from the hotel around 4 pm after security found Bob lifeless in his room.
It was gathered that he was pronounced dead on the scene, but the circumstances of his death still remain unclear.
“We have no information on cause of death, and detectives have found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said.
“The medical examiner’s Office will make the final call on the cause and manner of death.”
Reacting to the incident, John Stamos, Sager’s longtime friend tweeted: “I am broken. I am gutted.
I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.
