      Just, wow. So sad.

      There is a report from the Marin Sheriff Office. Finding the link now.

      Edit: Here is the link to the original report, but it is down since so many people are trying to access it. http://www.marinsheriff.org/uploads/854.pdf

      I just heard this. This sucks. He was easily one of my top 5 favorite comedians.

      Sounds like it was indeed suicide. So messed up.

      Don't like something? Report it. We can't be everywhere at all times.

      This one truly makes me sad

      He was my favorite comedian actor, and if I ever met a famous actor I had always hoped it would be him.

      Great episode, I think it's probably the most recent thing I've seen him in
      All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

      Agreed. Ill never understand why it's "appropriate" to in some way make sad situations like death funny just because it's the internet, like those stupid images of people with similar names. Loved watching Mork and his Jeep when i was a kid and the show was new, made me want a Cj so bad. RIP Mr. Williams, you were respected by many and will be missed.

      If any of you guys haven't seen his movie Insomnia yet, do yourself a favor and give it a watch. He had some all time comedy performances that were classics, but I found his role as "the bad guy" in Insomnia to be his best work.

      man, what a sad day. i practically grew up with Robin Williams. probably saw all of his movies in a 12 year stretch during my youth. i have some vivid memories of seeing Jack with young friends for my birthday party.

      Yeah, that sucks.

      I can't say I'm that surprised though. He was so odd off camera.

      So it seems like when you hit your 30s, the actors you grew up with and loved start to pass away.

      It's sad to me that so many people battle with depression, and it seems like comedians get it the worst.
