Robin Williams Dead - Suspected Suicide, Dies at Age 63

Robin Williams has died at the age of 63.

The Oscar-winning actor and comedian reportedly died from a suspected suicide by asphyxia in Marin County, Calif. A forensic examination is currently set for Tuesday, August 12 with subsequent toxicology testing to be conducted.

“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,” the police said in a statement.

The police added, “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.”

Robin was known for his roles in Good Will Hunting, Dead Poet’s Society, Mrs. Doubtfire. He was recently in the canceled CBS series The Crazy Ones.

Robin won an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in 1998 for Good Will Hunting.

Last month, Robin entered rehab to maintain his sobriety.

    So sad. Why do people who seem to have everything get so depressed? You’d think what he has and has accomplished would be enough. My heart goes out to his wife and family. Suicide is so selfish.

    The Zionist machine took its toll on him. The man had no more joy to give us and the world which condones murdering children and calling for genocide – no longer deserves him.

    RIP Willliams – join the angels of GAZA just follow them right up to heaven.

    ….God damn it this world is so cruel now.

    Because they are usually the ones that are the most aware of the ugly side of life. Ecxcept for Bill Maher – the man is not funny and he is a VILE hack.

    I wish it was Bill Maher that died.
