Investigation into Death of Actor Robin Williams
On August 11, 2014, at approximately 11:55 am, Marin County Communications
received a 9-1-1 telephone call reporting a male adult had been located unconscious
and not breathing inside his residence in unincorporated Tiburon, CA. The Sheriff’s
Office, as well as the Tiburon Fire Department and Southern Marin Fire Protection
District were dispatched to the incident with emergency personnel arriving on scene at
12:00 pm. The male subject, pronounced deceased at 12:02 pm has been identified as
Robin McLaurin Williams, a 63 year old resident of unincorporated Tiburon, CA.

An investigation into the cause, manner, and circumstances of the death is currently
underway by the Investigations and Coroner Divisions of the Sheriff’s Office.
Preliminary information developed during the investigation indicates Mr. Williams was
last seen alive at his residence, where he resides with his wife, at approximately 10:00
pm on August 10, 2014. Mr. Williams was located this morning shortly before the 9-1-1
call was placed to Marin County Communications. At this time, the Sheriff’s Office
Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a
comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made.
A forensic examination is currently scheduled for August 12, 2014 with subsequent
toxicology testing to be conducted.

Unbelievable. I am simply stunned. He was one of the best of his era. Huge loss for the comedic community and condolences to his wife and his family. He will be missed.

Jarett Wieselman @JarettSays
Robin Williams' reps confirm to BuzzFeed that the actor has died. "He has been battling severe depression of late," reads a statement

Depression is one hell of a wicked demon, and it claimed another victim.

I found his personality and style of comedy pretty grating, but he definitely had his great moments over the years. Sad to see him go.

Wow. That is really all I can manage right now. I know he had brushes with some darker personal forces early in his life/career, but I never would have suspected this at all.

I'm so sorry it had to come to this for him.
