Actor Robin Williams found dead in apparent suicide
August 11, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

Actor Robin Williams was found dead in his Marin County home this morning, according to the county coroner’s bureau.

Williams, 63, a noted film and television actor, appears to have killed himself via asphyxiation, coroner’s officials said. He was found unconscious and not breathing shortly before noon at his home in unincorporated Tiburon.

He was pronounced dead shortly after noon.

Williams was last seen alive at the home he shares with his wife at about 10 p.m. Sunday, coroner’s officials said.

The Marin County Sheriff’s Office and the coroner’s bureau are investigating his death and will conduct a forensic examination to determine his exact cause of death.

Williams first moved to the Bay Area when he was a teen and attended Redwood High School in Larkspur and later the College of Marin for theater. He also owned a home in San Francisco’s Sea Cliff neighborhood.

He had a long career as a stand-up comedian and appeared in numerous film and television roles including the 1970s sitcom “Mork and Mindy,” his Academy Award-winning performance in “Good Will Hunting” and nominations for “Good Morning, Vietnam,” “Dead Poets Society” and “The Fisher King.”
