Something very weird is going on here. I am sure of it.
Bob Saget’s family on Tuesday filed a lawsuit to block the release of records from the investigation of his sudden death at the age of 65.
Saget was found dead on January 9 in an Orlando hotel room after doing a stand-up show the previous night.
On February 9, his family said that he had died of a head trauma, saying in a statement: ‘They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep.’
Yet on February 11, the chief medical examiner of Orange and Osceola counties said that Saget had serious skull fractures – raising questions about the previous explanation. One analyst, looking at the report, said the injuries were consistent with being hit with a baseball bat or falling 30 feet.
On Tuesday, Saget’s widow, food blogger Kelly Rizzo, 42, and his his three daughters – Aubrey, 34; Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29, whom he shared with ex-wife Sherri Kramer – petitioned to stop the release of further information about the ‘Full House’ star’s death, which was ruled an accident with no suspected foul play.
The family sought an injunction against the medical examiner’s office and the Orange County Sheriff to prevent the release of any records – including photographs, video and audio recordings, and ‘statutorily protected autopsy information’ – related to his death.
‘Plaintiffs will suffer irreparable harm in the form of extreme mental pain, anguish, and emotional distress if Defendants release the Records in response to public records requests or otherwise disseminate the Records for any other reason or purpose,’ the lawsuit stated, according to a copy obtained by ABC News.
