Robin Williams first tried to kill himself by slitting his wrist with a pocket knife, before hanging himself with a belt when that attempt failed.
According to the Marin County Deputy Coroner, Williams was alone at home that Monday morning when he suddenly took out a knife and slit his left wrist, but the knife managed to create ‘acute superficial cuts.’
Then Williams took a belt and tied it on his neck before fastening it between the closet door and the door frame. His body was found by his personal assistant in a seated position, slightly suspended and with his right shoulder against the door.
The coroner also said that Robin was receiving treatment for depression, which is the main reason behind his suicide.
Robin was last seen by his wife Susan on Sunday night.
