Robin Williams Suicide Death Caused By Asphyxiation By Helium Inhalation In Exit Bag

Comic Hollywood actor Robin Williams has passed on. The popular comedian died today at the age of 63 several months after battling depression that left him hopeless.

According to Marin County Police officials, a call came from Robin’s residence around 11:55 am this morning that a man has been found with no vital signs.

He was pronounced dead around 12pm and identified as Robin McLaurin Williams at 12:02pm.

According to his spokesperson, Robin Williams battled chronic depression for a while before he finally took his own life on Monday when he couldn’t cope with life anymore at the age of 63.

The incident happened at his mansion in Tiburon California. A Coroner this afternoon said the actor died of suspected suicide by asphyxiation.

Here is an official press statement from Police on Robin Williams death:

On August 11, 2014, at approximately 11:55 a.m, Marin County Communications received a 9-1-1 telephone call reporting a male adult had been located unconscious and not breathing inside his residence in unincorporated Tiburon, CA. The Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Tiburon Fire Department and Southern Marin Fire Protection District were dispatched to the incident with emergency personnel arriving on scene at 12:00 pm. The male subject, pronounced deceased at 12:02 pm has been identified as Robin McLaurin Williams, a 63-year-old resident of unincorporated Tiburon, CA.” Continue..

An investigation into the cause, manner, and circumstances of the death is currently underway by the Investigations and Coroner Division s of the Sheriff’s Office. Preliminary information developed during the investigation indicates Mr. Williams was last seen alive at his residence, where he resides with his wife, at approximately 10:00 pm on August 10, 2014. Mr. Williams was located this morning shortly before the 9-1-1 call was placed to Marin County Communications. At this time, the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made. A forensic examination is currently scheduled for August 12, 2014 with subsequent toxicology testing to be conducted.

His widow, Susan Schneider who spoke few minutes after her husband’s lifeless body was discovered in their home said:

“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. 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.”

The depressed actor apparently used a suicide bag filled with inert gas like Nitrogen or Helium which prevents panic, suffocation and struggling during unconsciousness (the hypercapnic alarm response) usually caused by the deprivation of oxygen in the presence of carbon dioxide.

It is painless and is usually used by people battling terminal illness that can’t be cured. In most cases, it is used for assisted suicide.

Indeed money can never guarantee happiness. May God console his family and forgive him his sins. He’s such a talented man.

The world has indeed lost an icon.

    He is old enough to know that suicide is not the best option no matter what the problem is. people sleep under the bridges and wake up daily to thank God, and him, with all the fame and money? unles the fame and money came from the devil. and if so, ………reap what he sow………
    And let it be a warning to others in hollywood and nollywood that worship the devil.

      You truly have no clue what you are talking about. You are the type of people that others need to escape from. You clearly have no experience with depression.

    Dis man wz realy a gud comic actor. I’v watchd his Mrs Doubtfire ova&ova again, very entertaining! Wit all his achivments, one is quick 2 wonder wat oda pursuit dat left him feeln so empty as 2 take his own life. Just yesterday I would’ve said he’s a fulfild man. How sad it is 2 face d grim irony of life, especially as it applies 2 superstars. We look @dem wit super-charged admiration 4 their works, wishn we could attain even half of their status, yet deep within dem they feel dis self-inflicted weariness & bottomless emptiness dat nothing can satisfy.
    I beliv dat anyone who had found Jesus Christ would not take his/her life in dis manner. He alone can satisfy & tame d repining longings of a soul. I d/4 recommend Jesus 2 all diz stars of hollywood, bollywood, nollywood, ghollywood and any oda wood dat I dnt knw exists.

      What a ***** you truly are. Only GOD can judge, you self rightous ****! Go ****! Obviously you can’t see the kind and loving spirit he had. He was a gift to the world. God pray for your soul…*****.

        But… aren’t you passing judgement with your comment? Isn’t that self righteous?

    It is hard to believe that someone like “obinna” would be so cold as to profess to know how other people feel. Shame on you for judging him. People who commit suicide are in SO much pain that death seems like the only way out. Its not OUR call to make. And what does his fame and money have to do with it?? Rest in peace, dear Robin. “obinna” – go take some sensitivity training!

    obinna–You are a ******. He did not commit suicide because he worships the devil. He did it because he had severe depression. Why is it that so many professed people of god are the most judgemental and mean? Robin WIlliams was a wonderful comic and a tortured soul. I will miss him.

    I thank naijagist 4 not lettn me knw exactly wateva u calld me, Jackie, & frankly, I gues u shd do d same. If both of us were 2 go pound-4-pound wit abusiv verbals, u wont b abl 2 witstand my punches, trust me.

    I shudder somtyms @ how wont many ppl r 2 insult odas in dis place. If only u were patient enof 2 read meaning in2 my coment! Geometric thinking is a faculty dat most brains r largely short of. Dat is sad!

    Or are u offended dat I mentiond Jesus? A numba of things could cause depression, namely rejection, disappointment, failure, sickness, a sense of worthlessness, etc. Granted dat a true Christian could b assaild by any of diz, but d proneness varies, dependn on how deep-rooted dat one is in Christ, which makes him/her see things frm a slant not availabl 2 any ordinary person.

    If u so desire, u may stil go a notch 4da 2 insult me. Dat wdnt shift me a foot. My take on dis is cast on stone.
