Robin Williams Dead of Apparent Suicide

Robin Williams, a legendary comic staple of Hollywood, has died. The 63-year-old actor was pronounced dead in his Tiburon, CA home after emergency personnel responded to a 911 call and found him unconscious at 11:55 am local time on August 11th, per the Marin County Sheriff's Office. Although authorities are investigating his death and an autopsy is eminent, it is believed that Williams' death was suicide by asphyxiation. The question on everyone's mind is, why? According to the actor's publicist Mara Buxbaum, Williams had been "battling severe depression of late." In a brief statement, Buxbaum said "This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time." William's wife, Susan Schneider had only this to say, "This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend while the world lost one of it's most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. »
