ROBIN WILLIAMS_ OTHER SIDE OF THE FAME 2UPDATED:

The world of celebrity is waking to and reeling from the untimely and terribly unexpected death of Oscar-winning actor and beloved comedian Robin Williams. News traveled to the world of social media in the Eastern Standard Time late evening hours on August 11, 2014.

With no note left to toll his reasoning, Williams’ body was discovered dead by his personal assistant. According to the Sheriffs Office Coroner Division, Williams’ death was due to asphyxiation with a belt. As well, reports are surfacing that Williams had originally attempted the suicide by slitting his left wrist with a pocketknife unsuccessfully-but having left “acute superficial transverse wounds.”

I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

Williams’ publicist Mara Buxbaum stated he had been suffering with severe depression here of late.
