Robin Williams Coroner’s Report Reveals New Details About Suicide
Williams was also struggling with anxiety, depression and paranoia just before he decided to take his own life.
According to the report, the late actor had so much paranoia that he placed three wristwatches in a sock and gave them to someone the night before he died because he was worried about keeping them safe.
Meanwhile, Robin’s widow Susan Schneider says everything seemed normal the night before his passing and described his demeanor as “excited.” He even used his iPad that evening, which she presumed to be a good sign as he had not read or watched TV in over 6 months (a sign of depression).
However, upon looking into his iPad, Williams had several tabs open to websites discussing medications, including Lyrica to help with seizures and propranolol which treats blood pressure and tremors.
Schneider says he was in the early stages of Parkinson’s and had been experiencing symptoms–like a tremor in his left arm and slowed movement in his left hand –since 2011, which is likely why he had looked into medications.
Williams also had four drugs in his system: two antidepressants and two caffeine compounds. Authorities also found a closed bottle of Seroquel, which treats schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and depression. However, the report confirms he was sober at the time of his death.
