Oscar-winning actor Robin Williams died at age 63, the Marin County County Sheriff’s office confirmed on Monday evening. Cause of death is suspected to be suicide.

The office said that they responded to a 911 call Monday morning that a male adult was found not breathing inside his home in Tiburon, Calif. Williams was identified shortly after and pronounced dead at 12:02 p.m.

“At this time, the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made,” the release stated.

His publicist, Mara Buxbaum, confirmed the news as well, and said that Williams was recently battling “severe depression.”
