“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.”

The Marin County Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division also released a statement to HollywoodLife.com:

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.

We will keep you updated as more new information becomes available.

The world has truly lost one of the funniest actors in history. Our thoughts are with Robin’s loved ones during this very difficult time.

The one that laughs the loudest is usually crying inside. I suffer from depression for the last 20 yrs. it is a terrible disease. When you are suffering material things you have is just no big deal . His achievements with his talent just did not matter. He wAs in pain and depression is horrible. You just want to go to sleep and the pain will go away. An argument that morning with his wife could have pushed him over the edge. We will never know. It’s hard to believe no one saw he was in so much pain. Everything he did was very genius. Never will we see this talent again. I cry inside for this big loss. It is hard to believe he did this. Did his wife truly not see him that morning.? Was it the Parkinson’s he did not want to face ? He made me laugh when at times I was so depressed. I wish I knew him
, I could have helped him. God please forgive him and let him rejoice with you because he was a very
Special person. I pray for him everyday.
I pray for his children his wife his x wife’s. I don’t understand why his death and burial was not shared with the public that loved him. But we must go on and enjoy his legacy with his movies he left us. Wanda richardson mccalla al

depression for the last 20 yrs. it.

Hard to believe that no one saw

Sad, tragic and senseless. Perhaps Robin would still be alive if he stopped to think how devastated his family, especially his children, would be after such a selfish act of self-absoption.

I doubt he took his own life. He was too full of life to let it go, especially so quietly without any note, or preparation, and just after his Daughter’s birthday? What kind of present would that be for a father to give his princess? There’s something fishy about this whole thing.

Somehow I find it hard to believe Robin Williams did this to himself. It seems really very suspicious to me. I hope his death is fully investigated.

Agree it is suspicious- immediate statement by wife and why would she go out at 10 30 in the morning without checking in on him – when she certainly knew of his issues?

I used to watch Mork and Mindy way back in the 70’s back in Highschool. Robin Williams made me laugh all my life and what other grown man could ever play Peter Pan! As a person who suffers from severe depression myself, infact Biopolar I realize how terriable and misunderstood this condition is. Robin you gave great joy and laughter to many thankyou!

Robin Williams has been in my home (via the tv) more times than some family members. He will be missed. Deepest sympathy to family and friends.

Yes you are absolutely correct. No one can “only” be married for 3 years and not be truly grieved by their spouses untimely death.
Get a grip moron and let “the family grieve with dignity” not unfounded and stupid rumors as you would choose to spread.

They weren’t even married for three years. They were married in October of 2011.

The main question: Why wasn’t someone with him? Especially the lady who now claims to be “heart-broken” over his death? Apparently everyone knew he was “battling depression?”

Yet he was all alone on a Sunday evening?

I was thinking the same, actually.

I hope I’m wrong, though.

And, her official statement seemed a little . . . well, contrived. And defensive.

He was depressed for such a long time, everybody knew it, yet she — does nothing? Takes no precautions? Doesn’t try to get help for him?

Leaves him alone at night?

I also think it is very strange that his wife, whom claims to have lost her best friend and husband, was sleeping in a separate bedroom, went out shopping at 10 in the morning, without checking on or saying goodbye to her severely depressed husband… Just seems out of place for me….

I agree with you. She is hiding behind false statements, and I don’t believe Robin had Parkinsons for a second. Good way to foil suspicion on her butt though. Lets hope the cops are smart and are checking her out, like her cellphone and computer. I think she has a lover boy and was with him and not at home at all Sunday night. I also think she either did it or had someone kill Robin and stage it to look like a suicide, because it certainly sounded like a poorly staged event. Robin was depressed about being married to her but he would not take his life over it.

Why were they sleeping in separate bedrooms? CNN or HLN reported his wife went to bed and qwhen she arose, she thought he was still sleeping. He was found in a closet, alone in his room. Apparently she didn’t check “his room” to see if he was sleeping. Just saying
