  • Robin Williams found dead at age 63.

KRON 4 has reported that Robin Williams passed away on Monday. The legendary actor, voice actor and comedian was found dead inside his residence in Tiburon, CA. Investigators suspect that Williams committed suicide, but the investigation is ongoing. 

From KRON:
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, officials said.

A forensic examination is currently scheduled for August 12, 2014 with subsequent toxicology testing to be conducted.

On July 1, Williams visited the 12-step program at a Minnesota facility to recharge after more than 18 straight months of work, according to his publicist.

Mara Buxbaum said Williams was “taking the opportunity to fine-tune and focus on his continued commitment, of which he remains extremely proud.”

Williams has been open about the challenges of maintaining sobriety. He sought treatment in 2006 when he relapsed and returned to drinking after 20 years.

Williams was one of my favorite comedians growing up. I remember asking for his HBO special Live on Broadway special for Christmas. That was the first comedy DVD I owned. Unfortunately, I never got to see him live. But I'm thankful for countless hours of entertainment he gave me.
