An autopsy into the shocking death of comedy and television great Bob Saget has been completed.

“An autopsy was performed this morning on Robert Lane Saget. Mr. Saget is a 65-year-old male, who was found unresponsive in his hotel room,” Joshua Stephany, the chief medical examiner of Orange and Osceola Counties, said in a press release obtained by Fox News Digital. 

“The cause and manner of death are pending further studies and investigation,” Stephany said. “At this time, there is no evidence of drug use or foul play.”

“Our condolences go out to Mr. Saget’s loved ones during this difficult time,” the statement concluded, noting that a final report still needs to be completed. 

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office previously told Fox News Digital that deputies responded to a call at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando just after 4 p.m and found Saget unresponsive in a hotel room and was pronounced dead on the scene. The Orange County Fire Rescue Department also responded to the call.

“We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today,” the Saget family said of the comedian who played Danny Tanner in “Full House” and “Fuller House” in a statement.
