TIBURON, California- Actor and comedian Robin Williams is dead after what police are calling an apparent suicide.
According to CNN he was found inside his home on Monday; he was unconscious and not breathing. The coroner suspects his suicide was due to asphyxia.
The actor was last seen alive at his home around 10 p.m. Sunday night.
Williams, who was known for films like Hook and Mrs. Doubtfire, had gone back to rehab last month to deal with alcohol addiction.
The Marin County Sheriff told CNN that Williams had been battling severe depression lately and that his family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.
Williams was born in Chicago but grew up in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
He was 63 years old.
