Robin Williams was found dead today, Monday, just after noon, in Tiburon California, August 11th. The cause of death-- asphyxiation, is suspected to be suicide.

Williams started as a comedian and grew to become a talented actor playing diverse roles.

The Washington Post reports, "His publicist, Mara Buxbaum, confirmed the news as well, and said that Williams was recently battling "severe depression."

"Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late," Buxbaum said in a statement. "This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."
