It is with a heavy heart that we report today that Robin Williams’ cause of death has been released today. According to a news release issued by the Marin County, CA, Sheriff’s Office, the beloved actor hanged himself in his California home – his body found on Monday at about 11:55 a.m. by a personal assistant. He was pronounced dead at 12:02 p.m. PT. by firefighters. The statement goes into detail about Mr. Williams’ death including a report that several acute superficial transverse cuts were found on his left wrist with a closed pocket knife located close to Mr. Williams.

“He has been battling severe depression of late,” his publicist told ABC News. “This is a tragic and sudden loss.”

Here at Townsquare Media, we are saddened by the loss of a great comedian, actor, entertainer. We want you to know that if you or someone you know is considering taking your their own life, there are people right here in the tri-state that can help. We urge you to call them.
