Robin Williams Found Dead Of Apparent Suicide

A sad sad day indeed.
Robin Williams Found Dead Of Apparent Suicide is reporting that famous Hollywood actor Robin McLaurin Williams was found dead 12PM today at the age of 63.

He plays in our favorite childhood movies such as Good Will Hunting, Jumanji, Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Morning, Vietnam, and many many more.

The sheriff's coroner's division of Northern California states that they suspect that the death was a suicide due to ashpyxia (oxygen deprivation which causes unconsciousness, suffocation or death). Investigation is still pending and a forensic examination is scheduled for Tuesday.

According to Entertainment Weekly, in a statement confirming William's death, his publicist said: "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."

Today, the world has lost one of its most talented and dearest artist.

More details to come.
