Comedian Robin Williams Dead From Apparent Suicide

In deeply sad news, Robin Williams has died from apparent suicide. Williams died in his Northern California home.

Lt. Keith Boyd, assistant Chief Deputy Coroner for Marin County, Calif., released an official statement to the press in an effort to eliminate any false information.



According to the coroner, 911 responded to "telephone call reporting a male adult had been located unconscious and not breathing inside his residence" at 11:55am on August 11, 2014.

The official medical report will not be released at this time because "an investigation into the cause, manner, and circumstances of the death is currently underway." However, there's a strong suspicion "to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made."

The Oscar-winning actor was last seen at 10:00 pm the night before with his wife. Williams starred in numerous movies ranging most genres, as well as starring on televisions shows. Known for his voice acting, he also silently battled depression.



Danielle Nussbaum from Entertainment Weekly tweeted another official statement, saying, "Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss.”

Suddenly the world's a little less funny and bright without his wit, laughter and smile to banish the darkness.

Susan Schneider, his wife, offered the family's appeal and statement to the press. “This morning I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings."

Schneider wanted to maintain some level of privacy and to not speculate on the death or create a feeding frenzy of wrong information.



"On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laugher he gave to millions.”

So this article will honor her wishes and remember the best parts of the man who made the world laugh. In the comments below, please leave your favorite Robin Williams moments.

I'll start.

Growing up, I loved Mork & Mindy. Nick at Nite offered me a whole knew world I was just a little to young to remember. Mork was this zany alien, who just a little too dirty for someone my age.



I didn't get it at 8, but at 18, I laughed at Williams’ ability to slide something suggestive in such an innocent statement. Those blue eyes wide and framed in soft, dark eyelashes.

He was the epitome of a comedic chameleon. Watching Williams and Winters together absolutely brought a smile to my face. Memories on top of memories: watching the show with my dad, laughing together and being goofy.



Mental illness isn't easy, and it lies to you. If you need help, ask for it. Don't be afraid to say what you need. For those in the United States, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's phone number is 1-800-273-8255. Internationally, please check this link for local numbers.
