Robin Williams dies at his 63

Bishkek (AKIpress) - williamsRobin Williams, the versatile actor whose madcap comic style made him one of television and film's biggest stars, was found dead on Monday from an apparent suicide at his home in Northern California. He was 63.

"This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken," Williams' wife Susan Schneider said in a statement.

The Marin County Sheriff's coroner's division said it suspected Williams committed suicide by asphyxia, but the cause of death is still under investigation and an autopsy will be conducted Tuesday.

Williams had been recently suffering from severe depression, his publicist Mara Buxbaum said in a statement, and the actor had repeatedly talked about his past struggles with alcohol.

U.S. President Barack Obama called Williams a "one of a kind" actor who could make people laugh and cry in his array of characters.

"He arrived in our lives as an alien - but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit," Obama said in a statement.
