Oscar winning actor and comedian Robin Williams has been found
dead at his home in California after apparently killing himself at
the age of 63.

“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the
world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human
beings. I am utterly heartbroken,” Williams’s wife Susan Schneider
said in a statement on Monday.

The sheriff’s coroner’s division said it suspects the death was a
suicide due to asphyxia, but the cause of death is still under
investigation.

The Marin County Sheriff’s office said it received an emergency
call about noon local time on Monday, saying that Williams was
unconscious and not breathing at his home near Tiburon, north of
San Francisco.

Williams, who won an Academy Award for his role as a fatherly
therapist in 1997′s “Good Will Hunting,” had been suffering from
severe depression recently, his publicist Mara Buxbaum said.

Williams, who introduced his frenetic style on late 1970s TV series
“Mork & Mindy” and had struggled with addiction in the past, had
entered a Minnesota rehabilitation centre last month to help him
maintain sobriety.

His representatives at the time said Williams was not using drugs
or alcohol but had gone to the centre to “fine-tune and focus” his
sobriety after working a longer-than-usual schedule.
