This is a very sad day. One of my favorite actor / comedian, Robin Williams has died. E! reports that the actor (who won an Oscar for his role in Goodwill Hunting) died this morning. The cause of death is suspected to be “suicide by asphyxia”. It is very sad.
Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that it was a suicide, they did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
According to a press release issued by the Marin County Coronor’s office, the Sheriff’s office suspects the death to be “suicide due to asphyxia.” The 9-1-1 phone call came in just before noon today.
