Aug. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Keith Boyd, a lieutenant at the Marin County Sheriff’s Coroner Division, speaks at a news conference about the investigation into the death of comic and actor Robin Williams.
The preliminary cause of death was asphyxia by hanging, Boyd said. Firefighters found Williams in a seated position with a belt around his neck at his home in Tiburon, California. His left wrist had been superficially slashed and a pocket knife was found near the body. There were no signs of a struggle, Boyd said. (Source: Bloomberg)
