Robin Williams struggled with more than just the early stages of Parkinson’s disease and depression the days leading up to his death.
TMZ recently reported that Robin Williams may have also struggled with paranoia.
The night before the 63-year-old actor took his own life, he reportedly placed several wrist watches inside of a sock and gave the collection to someone for safe keeping.
At the time of Robin Williams’ death, the coroner was able to confirm the presence of four different drugs inside of his body — two caffeine compounds that were listed as an official drug as well as two anti-depressants. The coroner’s report also confirmed that Robin Williams was not drugged or drunk when he committed suicide on August 11; he was completely sober.
The coroner’s report also revealed and confirmed additional details about the night before and the hours leading to the moment when Robin Williams committed suicide.
For instance, the last outgoing call that Robin Williams made from his cell phone was to his wife, Susan Schneider. According to his wife, the Good Will Hunting actor used the 38-second phone call to let his wife know that he was picking up magazines for her at a bookstore. That final call was made at 7:08 PM.
Robin Williams first attempted to commit suicide by cutting his wrists with a pocket knife. When that did not work, the actor decided to hang himself with his own belt inside of his Marin County home.
TMZ reports that Robin’s wife was asked whether or not her husband enjoyed auto-erotica, such as erotic asphyxiation. His wife confirmed that he did not, especially since he found it to be “very difficult and emotional” to work on a movie several years ago where his character’s son died from it.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Robin suffered from severe depression as well as Parkinson’s disease shortly before he took his own life.
When revealing to the world the news about her husband’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease, Susan Schneider released an official statement encouraging others facing similar battles to seek the support and treatment that they need.
“It is our hope in the wake of Robin’s tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid.”
Robin Williams’ daughter, Zelda Williams, made headlines earlier this year by getting an artistic tattoo as a tribute to her late father.
Robin Williams was known for playing a number of memorable roles on the big screen and small screen alike. Such iconic characters as Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire, Mork and Genie are just a few of the many roles that Robin Williams’ biggest fans and critics remember him the most for playing throughout his career.
