“An autopsy was performed this morning on Robert Lane Saget,” Joshua Stephany, the chief medical examiner of Orange and Osceola counties, said in a statement, according to People. “Mr. Saget is a 65-year-old male, who was found unresponsive in his hotel room. At this time, there is no evidence of drug use or foul play.”

“The cause and manner of death are pending further studies and investigation which may take up to 10-12 weeks to complete,” Stephany added. “Our condolences go out to Mr. Saget’s loved ones during this difficult time.”

Saget is survived by Rizzo, as well as his daughters Jennifer, Lara and Aubrey from a previous marriage to Sherri Kramer.
