Coroner: Actor Robin Williams Dead of Apparent Suicide

Famed comedian and actor Robin Williams was found dead Monday at his home in northern California, law enforcement officials said.

Williams was 63.

In a news release, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office said that Williams was found unconscious Monday afternoon at about 12:00 p.m. local time inside his home. Investigators said Williams was last seen alive at 10 p.m. Sunday night at the home he shares with his wife. Williams' death appears to be a suicide by asphyxia, according to the coroner. However, a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made.

On July 1, Williams went a Minnesota rehab facility after working for 18-months straight, according to his publicist.
