Robin Williams’ death: Authorities suspect suicide

On Monday, the world lost an icon. On Tuesday, the world learned the grisly details of Robin Williams’ death.

According to authorities, Williams hanged himself with a belt in his Tiburon, Calif. home. Marin County Sheriff’s Lt. Keith Boyd said the evidence suggests a suicide, but that nothing would be confirmed until the toxicology report, and interviews were completed.

Williams had been seeking treatment for depression and also has a history of substance abuse. Last month, Williams announced he was entering a 12-step treatment program.

Williams was found by his personal assistant Monday after he failed to respond to a couple knocks. Authorities do not suspect that any foul play was involved.

Lt. Boyd said the investigation is still ongoing.
