Funny man Robin Williams was found dead at his home in Marin County, California. He was 63 years-old. The Oscar award winners death is suspected to be suicide due to asphyxia, but that has not been officially confirmed. A 9-1-1 call placed at 11:55 a.m. stating that a man was laying unconscious and not breathing inside his residence. Paramedics confirmed that the individual was indeed Robin Williams.

William’s publicist released a statement “Mr. Williams has been battling severe depression.”

Robin Williams attended the Juillard School in NYC. His role as an alien named Mork on the hit TV show Mork and Mindy brought Robin’s career front and center.

He then went on to work on tons of movies and earn an Oscar for his role in Good Will Hunting as a therapist.

President Obama released a statement…..”Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most – from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets.”
