Robin Williams

According to a coroner's report, legendary actor Robin Williams' death was caused by hanging. The Oscar winner took his own life sometime after 10:30 p.m. Sunday at his Northern California home. An assistant found his body Monday morning. He was 63.

According to the report Mr. Williams was found hanging from a belt that was wedged between a door frame. His body was suspended slightly off the floor in a sitting position.

Additionally, "superficial injuries" from a small pocket knife were found on the inside of Williams' left wrist -- an indication that he attempted to slice his artery but he was probably deterred by the pain.

A suicide note was found at the scene.

Williams suffered from severe depression and bipolar disease complicated by drug and alcohol addictions. He entered a rehab center last month for substance abuse treatment.

Bob Zmuda, "Comic Relief" producer and longtime friend of Williams, was interviewed on CNN today. He said Williams was typical of most comedians who suffer from depression.

Zmuda said Williams suffered from depression because his own mother was depressed. Zmuda, who knew Williams for 35 years described the comedian as a "loner" who often played the class clown in school.

      So sad. The only good thing is that more and more people are understanding that mental health has no limits in terms of who is affected and if a person is dealing with depression, fits of anger and other forms of mental health issues then they need to talk to someone. Not all the time it has to be a counselor but find someone that you can be transparent with and let them know, that person might be the one to guide them in the right direction to get help or even save their life

    • aRoTh

      that he is in the heaven from “What Dreams May Come”

      b/c you KNOW that was a movie about suicide.....I will ALWAYS remember a "quoteable" (sp) from that movie.

      Something along the lines of....

      Hell isn't about a place you go to after you die. It's the state you go through b/c of the decision you made.

      DON'T QUOTE ME on that.

      I know one thing....IT was a profound statement/quote from that movie.

    • aRoTh


      @aroth…was it depression/bipolar,

      Nope. Two folks cheating. One got caught.

      I had a discussion with my cousin last night about suicide. I never knew that she was tormented and depressed at one point in her life. She made up her mind that she was going to drive her truck off of a bridge. She did not pray and cried all the way, she cried so much that she couldnt even see the road. When she stopped she was in front of a church that she knew a friend went to (mind you this is Sunday morning she did not attend church at all) she asked someone to go in and get her friend. The friend comes out with her Mother and they prayed over her and invited her into church. She sits in the back not really wanting to be there. The pastor was already preaching, he stopped mid sentence and said there was a spirit of suicide in the house and then continued to preach. My cousin thinks at that time that her friend's mother said something to him, but she could not have because he was already preaching when she sat down. The preacher again stops and says I can't not continue to preach because the spirit of suicide was sooo strong, he comes down the pews and walks up directly to my cousin and says "You were going to take your own life today, Do you not know who you are?" She says that this moment changed her whole life that God stepped in and and showed her he was real and all that she needed. Needless to say she never tried again and turned everything over to God. Her exact words to me "You can not and may never realize the attacks the enemy will infiltrate your mind with. Your mind is a muscle and you have to stregthen it with the WORD OF GOD!!!!

      Sorry for the long post, but she really had my :crying: and thanking God for my sanity.....


      yep...guess it wasn't her time

      Milky- WONT he do it!! Feel like taking a praise break right now. My pastor has the gif of prophecy too. He stops right in the middle and prays for folks.

      So sad.. :crying: RIP Robin Williams... So many people are coming out saying how great he was, but when was the last time they actually reached out to him to see how he was doing? Depression is real... Don't wait to say I love you until its too late. By then, it's just a waste....

    • felinelurker

      Libra, my babies (and my)favorite Williams' movie is RV. He tried so hard to make his family happy!

    • OpinionHated

      Very sad... people who make others laugh tend to be the most sad and depressed folks out - this reminds me of when Belushi died... he was drugged up but he was also depressed... so sad...

    • scorpio

      I wonder if on the other side, if we are still aware of this side, does he regret he did it now?

      Of course we still have to consider that his mind was not chemically working right, depression, alcohol abuse.

    • lovebites

      We should pray for him and his family. but we should also reach out to friends and family who also have that problem. Tell them we love them and be there... dont wait until they die to do that.

    • tintin1979

      so now they don't get the insurance money right?

    • Trevia Milliona

      That's sad... I don't believe he committed suicide, though. Call me crazy but I think this was an Illuminati kill. They always do it in 3s. He died, then the game of thrones actor, and then that famous racer... all in the same week or so. Just like when MJ died... He was murdered.
