This morning, Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died of an apparent suicide at the age of 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that it was a suicide, Entertainment Weekly recently published the statement issued by his publicist, “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

According to a press release issued by the Marin County Coronor’s office, the Sheriff’s office suspects the death to be “suicide due to asphyxia.” The 9-1-1 phone call came in just before noon today.
