LOS ANGELES: Actor Robin Williams has been found dead in his home in a suspected suicide, according to reports.
Officials are investigating the death of the 63-year-old who was found unconscious inside his home in northern California.
The Marin County Sheriff’s Office said investigations into the circumstances of his death are currently underway by the Investigations and Coroner Divisions (ICD) of the Sheriff’s Office, officials said.
Investigators said that Williams was last seen alive at his residence, where he resides with his wife, at approximately 10 p.m. Sunday, a report released from his publicist says.
ICD 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.
