The oscar winning comedic Robin Williams was found dead this morning in his bay area home at the age of 63. Williams was found unconscious and not breathing where he was pronounced dead after emergency responders arrived at the scene.

A press release from the Marin County Coroner's Sheriff's Office suspects the cause of death is "suicide due to asphyxia". Williams publicist hasn't confirmed that it was suicide but said he was facing extreme depression lately. A full forensic examination is expected to take place on August 12th. The singer previously battled with alcohol and cocaine addiction.

He was in recent talks to do a sequel to "Mrs. Doubtfire" and was last seen on the big screen in the trilogy of "Night at the Museum" and an indie film "The Face of Love".

The family is asking for privacy as they take time to grieve during this difficult time. What a terrible loss for the entertainment world.
