A month after Full House actor Bob Saget was found dead on January 9 in a Ritz-Carlton hotel room in Orlando, Florida, a medical examiner from the state confirmed the cause of death was trauma to the head.
However, conspiracy theorists, who initially claimed without evidence Saget died from a booster shot for COVID-19, are now speculating the comedian was murdered.
On Wednesday, the Saget family—who had asked for the public to respect their privacy to process their grief—released the following statement:
"The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma."
"They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved."
The Orange County Medical Examiner's Office previously revealed the actor's autopsy ruled out drugs or foul play following the tragic loss.
After authorities originally speculated Saget's death may have been caused by heart failure, conspiracy theorists–including far-right political pundit, Candace Owens–baselessly pointed to vaccines as the culprit.
Conspiracy theorists also cited a video from July in which Saget jokingly claimed to have gotten the vaccine “five to six” times a day as evidence contributing to his death.
They also mentioned a video of Saget receiving a booster shot as additional proof supporting their unfounded claim.
Yet, despite an official cause of death announcement from authorities, conspiracy theorists are falsely maintaining Saget was murdered.
Twitter user @Mursphs51 tweeted:
“Hitting his head…? Or, Hit on the head??? The new question…”
Another Twitter user, @vanessa3399, suggested someone was hired to put a hit out on the beloved comedian.
More doubters followed.
Others held onto the initial unfounded claim that vaccines caused the death of the comedian.
However, the rest of Twitter were shaking their heads over the evolving conspiracy theory relating to the death of a celebrity.
Bob Saget had been on the road for his comedy tour with performances scheduled through June. He was performing in Jacksonville, Florida, on the night before his death. He was 65.
After news of his death, many of his colleagues and friends in the industry, including SNL actor Pete Davidson, paid tribute to the venerated actor.
Saget's family added in their statement:
"Now that we have the final conclusions from the authorities' investigation, we felt it only proper that the fans hear those conclusions directly from us."
"As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter."
