Coroner: Robin Williams Cut Wrist, Hanged Himself
The Marin County coroner has determined how Robin Williams committed suicide.
The Marin County Sheriff’s Office did not return FOX411’s request seeking comment about how Williams died, but in their initial release about the death on Monday, stated the “Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects [Williams’] death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.”
According to TMZ, the comedian’s family—which includes his third-wife Susan Schneider and his three children—has yet to receive information about a suicide note, and it appears the actor may not have left one.
The beloved “Mork and Mindy” star had been battling severe depression recently, said his rep Mara Buxbaum. Just last month, he announced he was returning to a 12-step treatment program he said he needed after 18 months of nonstop work. He had sought treatment in 2006 after a relapse following 20 years of sobriety.
