Sheriff Gives Press Conference on Robin Williams’ Tragic Death

Marin County Sheriff’s Lt. Keith Boyd held a press conference this afternoon on Robin Williams‘ tragic death last night. The presser was covered on all three big cable news networks, and provided more details (perhaps more than necessary) about the horrifying circumstances of his death.

Boyd confirmed that Williams died of asphyxia due to hanging, and his assistant was the first one to find him. Reporters asked questions about how Williams’ body was found, whether he left a note, and whether he had any drugs in his system. Boyd did not provide much detail, saying more will come out as the investigation unfolds.

The reactions to Williams’ passing have been flooding in since last night, with even President Obama issuing a statement honoring this one of a kind man.
