Cause of Robin Williams death is revealed. The actor Robin Williams is said to have cut his wrist and hang himself with a belt while his wife slept in the next room.
Reports say the actor was last seen alive by his 3rd wife, Susan Schneider on Sunday at around 10.30pm, when he was going to sleep. He then shut himself in a different room.
When one assistant came across Robin’s body on Monday at five minutes to noon, rigor mortis had already set in. This condition takes about 12 to 18 hours for the body to stiffen after death.
Robin’s wife woke up at around 10.30 and started her regular house chores, believing her husband was still asleep.
An assistant was concerned why Robin had not woken up at such a time, and forced himself into the bedroom. Williams was seated with a belt around the neck.
Emergency staff arrived at midday, and at exactly two minutes past midday, the actor was pronounced dead.
