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.
