Robin Williams RIP

The tragic suicide of Oscar-winning actor Robin Williams has dominated BBC News headlines throughout the day. I watched the press conference given by police lieutenant Keith Boyd of Marin County Sheriff's Office, who read out a statement, then answered sensible questions and fielded the sillier ones. He confirmed that Williams had died of asphyxia due to hanging. The actor's personal assistant had entered the room just before noon California time and found Williams dead and cool to the touch. He was hanging in a seated position. What demons drove this fine actor with a beautiful wife, lovely daughter Zelda Mae and two sons to kill himself? The photo shows Robin Williams with his wife Susan Schneider in happier times. She has asked to be left alone and that Robin be remembered for the joy he brought to the world (CLICK).
