Actor Robin Williams Found Dead in CA Home

Posted:

CALIFORNIA- Actor and comedian Robin Williams has passed away from an apparent suicide.

Those close to him said he suffered from severe depression as of late.

The Marin County Sheriff’s Department said Williams’ death appears to be suicide due to asphyxia. He was pronounced dead at his home in California on Monday.

Williams’ wife, Susan Schneider, said she is “utterly heartbroken” and hopes people focus on his life and the “countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

Williams shot to fame in the late '70s as the alien in TV's "Mork and Mindy." He conquered the big screen in comic films such as "Good Morning, Vietnam" and "Mrs. Doubtfire." But he won his Academy Award in a serious role - as the therapist in "Good Will Hunting."

Williams was 63 years old.
