Robin Williams Found Dead, Aged 63

Robin Williams has been found dead, at the age of 63.

The Oscar winner and comedian was found at his home in Tiburin, California on Monday afternoon. The cause of death is believed to be suicide via asphyxiation, according to a statement released by police.

“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.”

Williams has suffered with drug and alcohol problems in the last, and earlier this Summer checked into rehab to avoid a relapse.

His publicist has revealed that the actor has been battling depression.

Williams’ wife, Susan Schneider, has released a statement:

“I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

Williams won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in Good Will Hunting, and was nominated on three other occasions. He will be remembered for, among so many other things, his roles in the 80s TV series Mork and Mindy, and films such as Jumanji, Patch Adams, Good Morning Vietnam and Mrs Doubtfire.

He had recently finished filming the third Night at the Museum film.
