I am shocked to learn about the sudden passing of Robin Williams. As a comedian, he was one of my childhood idols and I'm at a loss for words.

According to FOX News, Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams was found dead in his northern California home in a suspected suicide Monday.

The Marin County Sheriff's Department said in a statement that Williams was found unconscious and not breathing in his home around noon. The statement said the investigation into Williams' death is ongoing, but the coroner "suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia."

A representative for Williams said in a statement the actor had been battling "severe depression of late."

An incredible loss for not only the comedy world, but the acting world as well. He truly was great. Nanu... Nanu.
