The details of Robin Williams‘ death aren’t pretty.  A press conference was held to release how the legendary comic died.

LT Keith Boyd of the Marin County Sheriff’s Office addressed the media saying Williams died from ‘asphyxia due to hanging':

Mr. Williams’ personal assistant was able to gain access to Mr. Williams’ bedroom and entered the bedroom to find Mr. Williams clothed in a seated position, unresponsive, with a belt secured around his neck with the other end of the [belt] wedged between the closet door and the door frame. His right shoulder area was touching the door with his body perpendicular to the door and slightly suspended.’

Williams was last seen alive by his wife the night before.

Police also discovered cuts on Williams wrists and found a pocketknife nearby. Tests are being conducted to determine if Williams’ blood was on the knife. Toxicology tests are also being done.

A final cause and manner of death will not be certified until the conclusion of the investigation, which is several weeks away. When the investigation is concluded and our final results are ready, a press conference will be scheduled,’ Boyd said.

It’s hard enough to come to grips with the fact Robin Williams is gone. It’s even harder to understand why someone would take their own life, especially someone who seemed so full of life.
