    Robin Williams Dead, Apparent Suicide!

    Actor-comedian Robin Williams was found dead on Monday at his home in Northern California from an apparent suicide, the Marin County Sheriff's Office said. He was 63.

    The sheriff's coroner's division said it suspects the death was a suicide due to asphyxia, but said the cause of death is still under investigation.

    Williams shot to fame through his stand-up comedy and first starring role in the Happy Days spin-off, Mork & Mindy.

    He went on to a successful film career, winning the best supporting actor Oscar for Good Will Hunting in 1997. It was his fourth nomination, following Good Morning, Vietnam, The Fisher King, and Dead Poet's Society.

    Most recently, he starred in the CBS comedy The Crazy Ones.

    Williams, who has struggled with addiction in the past, entered a Minnesota rehabilitation centre to help him maintain sobriety.

    His representatives at the time said Williams was not using drugs or alcohol but had gone to the centre to "fine-tune and focus" his sobriety after working a longer-than-usual schedule.

    Just saw this in My news feed. Will always remember "Reality, what a concept". I think it was his first standup routine following mork & Mindy.

    My prayers are with his Family.

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    Another one of the good ones leaves us much too early. He was a comic genius, and we will all miss him.

    Amazing talented individual.

    Just saw on TV that he had an alcohol issue & a brain chemical imbalance and those two combined with depression following his past open heart surgery really smacked him with a triple whammy of severe depression. Very sad.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Williams.

    The world has lost a comedic genius.

    RIP Robin! What a sad story. He was so talented and I remember many times not being able to stop laughing when he was in the groove. I'll miss him.

    I will never understand why someone would do this. Especially someone like him. Hard times come in all forms I guess.

    Rip.
