    I thought Robin Willams was great - and I feel sad for his family, but I just feel like we're not getting the whole story on his death.

    His wife checked on him the night before and then went off to sleep in another room. Okay, that's a possibility - but why another room? And the next morning she doesn't go into the room to check on him?
    She just assumes he's still sleeping and she leaves the house.

    And his assistant/friend shows up and finds him.

    He's found in a semi-sitting position, hanging by a belt. A semi sitting position? The belt was wedged between the wall and closet door.

    I've never known anyone who's gone through this - but can someone tell me - can you put a belt around your neck and just lean into it enough that you kill yoursel?

    It just sounds like something is missing from this story.

    I agree - Something didn't sit right with me either - I feel like there could have been some argument or discussion that she might have had with him that night. She was just so quick to go into "he's in a better place" mode.

    I think there is more to it actually. I think after the hours spent thinking about Mr. Williams Howard DID manage to get ahold of him on the phone. He proceeded to ask Robin to hang out with he and Beth in the Hamptons. Robin, a nice guy, agreed. Well, you know what happens next.

    Obviously you're not married. :)
    But seriously, I bet she just let him sleep - it's not like he has a 9 to 5 that he has to go to - and she went on her way.
    He's dead. Let it go.

    Every time I see "Robin Williams suicide" my brain replaces Williams with Quivers and all is right in the world for a brief glimmering moment. How can I put this, like, air is clean again.

    It's funny. The day it happened my wife got up early to take the dog to the groomer and let me sleep. I was commenting on how strange it was that she didn't say bye first, when she reminded me of our similar situation.

    I'm not into a conspiracy but I did find it odd she issued a statement within hours after his death. A little quick.
    Granted, she wasn't married to him that long ...

    Lauren Fucking Bacall died and Not one, Give a Fuck. Robin Williams died and all of a sudden he was the greatest. Talk about warped views.:wtf:

    isn't this similar to how L'Wren Scott killed herself. Tied a scarf around her neck and a door knob and then sat down. Bizarre.

    Well that's because of the shock factor. It's not shocking when someone in their late 80's dies. Robin williams death from natural cause would be big news, the suicide makes it even more shocking, the method was horrifying IMO and makes it more sad

    Haha, I was going to say the same. Robin was so manic, I can only imagine what his night routine was like. I'm sure she just needed sleep and let him do his thing. I think they threw out the Parkinson's today so people back off. As we should. To be that tortured was hell. He had a very dark passenger he needed to be rid off. As far as the sitting position, could that mean he was on a chair he kicked out. I didn't see the press conference.
