Robin Williams Hung Himself; Left No Suicide Note

Robin Williams Hung Himself; Left No Suicide Note

Beloved actor and comedian Robin Williams succumbed to his depression yesterday and committed suicide in his home in Marin County, California. Now, new details have leaked out about his passing, suggesting that he hung himself in his home. As far as a suicide note was concerned, he didn’t write one. Sad.

Robin Williams committed suicide by hanging himself inside his home … sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

Sources say the family has heard nothing about a suicide note and it appears the comedian did not leave one.

We’re told Robin hung himself inside the main house … not the garage.

As we previously reported … Robin had been struggling with a deep depression and went to rehab last month. People familiar with his condition say he seemed almost too far gone back then.

Hopefully, his wife and children will be able to find some peace following this tragic event. We are still trying to process his death as his loss will continue to be great for years to come. He was a true talent and will be sorely missed in the entertainment world. As of this writing, Williams still has four movies currently in the works. Will you see them?

UPDATE: From TMZ:

We’ve learned Robin was discovered by his personal assistant. Robin’s wife Susan left their house Monday morning to run errands. While she was gone, Robin’s assistant came over, knocked at the door but no one answered. She became concerned because Robin was supposed to be there. She then knocked on the window and when no one answered she went inside and found the body.

Confirmed: Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose

Confirmed: Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose

It was just as everyone expected when we all heard the news of Peaches Geldof’s untimely passing. The coroner’s report has come back and it has been confirmed that she passed as the result of a heroin overdose.

Prior to her death, she had been taking methadone for two years. During that time, she was trying to reduce her dependency on that drug. She was found with a pair of tights underneath her body along with heroin in a black bag in a spare bedroom.

The coroner noted that he found a high concentration of heroin in her body. He noted that heroin users “develop a tolerance to the drug, and such individuals can use doses that would be toxic, or fatal, to people with no tolerance.”

To that, he added that tolerance “appears to be lost fairly rapidly when users cease to use the drug, and deaths commonly occur in people who have previously been tolerant and have returned to using heroin.”

The coroner’s report concluded, “There is no indication that any other third party was present or involved in her death and there is no indication that Peaches intended to take her own life or harm herself in any way as she was reported to be of happy disposition and planning for the future with friends and family.”

So sad :(

RIP James Garner – Dead at 86

RIP James Garner - Dead at 86

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of legendary actor James Garner. He played many roles, but rose to prominence in “The Rockford Files”, “Maverick” and “The Notebook”.

He was pronounced dead at 86-years-old and passed away from natural causes. Law enforcement sources say that an ambulance was called to his home in Los Angeles on Saturday night at around 8PM PST, but he was found dead upon their arrival.

It’s really sad to see him go, he was one of the great actors of our time. Even if you only knew him from “The Notebook” or went further back to his time on “The Rockford Files”, he was fantastic in his ability to take on a role.

His contributions to the entertainment industry will live on forever. We’re sad to see him go. Leave your best memories of his acting in the comments section below.
