Bon Saget is dead
The 65-year-old died at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Florida. We keep getting details about his death. Some of them made us ask a lot of questions.
According to the Daily Mail, Saget was lying on the bed in the hotel room. He was “cold to the touch, yellow, and clammy” as reported by the police.
Ritz-Carlton staff said Saget last used his key to enter the 962 room at 2.17 am on Sunday which was a few hours after his show in Jacksonville.
Security officer Jody Lee Harrison entered the room on Sunday afternoon after the family contacted them. Harrison said Saget was “unresponsive and not breathing,” as reported by officer Adrian Gonzalez.
“Mr. Harrison received no response after knocking several times and attempted to gain entry,” his report states. Mr. Harrison entered the room and noted all the lights were off. He proceeded to the bedroom and located Mr. Saget in his bed.
He stated Mr. Saget was ‘cold to the touch, yellow and clammy’. He checked for breathing and a pulse but none were detected. It was at this time he had his dispatch call 9-1-1. Mr. Saget used his room key to enter the room at 0217 hours this date. As previously stated several attempts were made to open the door, after check out time, by hotel security for their check of well-being.”
Saget was declared dead at 4:18 pm, about 11 minutes after the 911 call.
“I checked the immediate area for signs of foul play. It should be noted none were found. The room itself was orderly with items owned by Mr. Saget on the nightstand, television stand, closet and bathroom,” he wrote. “Mr. Saget was found in a supine position on his bed. His left arm was across his chest while his right arm was resting on the bed. No signs of trauma were seen.”
A homicide team was notified as part of the routine.
“Corporal Brian Meadows (HO11) responded to the scene with the Forensics Unit. While on scene, hotel management spoke with Mr. Saget’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, over the phone to inform her of his passing,” the document states. “This decision was made after consulting with their legal team. The scene was turned over to Homicide while maintained scene security for the duration.”
