Bob Saget's family attorney, Brian Bieber, has spoken out following the release of the comedian's death records and amid reports highlighting a claim that Saget wasn't feeling good the night that he passed.
"The records released tell the entire story -- that is -- Bob passed away after a fall and hitting his head in his hotel room," Bieber said in a statement shared with ET. "Now that the medical examiner’s and police department’s records have been released after their respective thorough investigations, the Saget family would appreciate privacy to mourn in peace."
According to audio obtained by Page Six, Ponte Vedra Concert Hall staffer Rosalie Cocci -- who runs errands for talent and other staff at the venue -- recalled during an interview with Orange County police after the actor’s death how Saget spoke about how he was feeling and that he allegedly referenced having long-term COVID and hearing issues.
"I did hear him say, you know, 'I don't feel good, but I'm ready to do the show,'" she said of Saget, who had tested positive for COVID-19 and was still positive for the virus at the time his autopsy was conducted.
"He said that his hearing had been off and that was the case for that evening. He was asking the sound guys to turn everything up," Cocci noted.
However, Cocci also said, "He seemed OK, he really did and it was very surprising the next day."
Saget's widow, Kelly Rizzo, as well as his daughters, Aubrey, Lara and Jennifer, attended last week's hearing after a lawsuit was filed on behalf of Saget's family last month.
The lawsuit argued that the actor's family would "suffer irreparable harm in the form of extreme mental pain, anguish, and emotional distress" if the Orange County Sheriff and Medical Examiner's Office released the records "in response to public records requests or otherwise disseminate the Records for any other reason or purpose."
"While we are sensitive to the family’s concerns about the right to privacy, that must be balanced with our commitment to transparency, compliance with the law, and the public’s right to know," the Orange County Sheriff’s Office told ET in a statement at the time.
The images released included ones of the nightstand and headboard in Saget's room, where trauma could have occurred, as well as bathroom and shower images.
Of the 147 images taken at the scene, 90 that depict his body and personal items will be permanently sealed, while the remaining 57 are legally able to be made public as well as body camera video from deputies taken outside the hotel room. Footage from inside the hotel room is being protected.
Earlier this month, a redacted incident report was released noting that Saget suffered from multiple skull fractures.
The medical examiner said that the multiple skull fractures -- coupled with the fact that the skin on the back of his head was still intact -- led him to believe that the injury "was most likely caused by something hard, covered by something soft," and the example the medical examiner gave was akin to falling on a carpeted floor.
