There are many stories going around about the death of Robin Williams. Most say he committed suicide; others say he was murdered. Me? I believe he was in the middle of auto-erotic asphyxiation, but either let it go too long and he passed out (and later died), or something went wrong and he was unable to move.
I find it hard to believe that a 63 year old man, as wealthy and famous as Robin Williams, would have such a hard time dealing with depression. I am not saying it’s implausible, nor am I suggesting that rich and famous people don’t become depressed, but I think it’s a lot more plausible that the man was pleasuring himself and it simply ‘went bad’.
As a stand-up comedian, Robin Williams was one of the most disgustingly-minded individuals I’ve seen on stage. He constantly talked about sex – disgusting sex – and his strange antics were considered ‘pervish’ by many. Granted, there’s nothing wrong with auto-erotic asphyxiation, but I feel the truth shall set us all free.
I’d also like to point out the level of detail the coroner exposed about this suicide. It isn’t everyday that a coroner paints an extremely vivid picture about the “suicide” of famous people. But, in Robin Williams’ case, he did. Why? Well, it’s probably because they concocted the entire story and in order to get people to believe it was suicide, rather than accidental death by masturbation, they had to “sell it” to the public.
Furthermore, the coroner, and Williams’ assistant, said they found him “clothed.” This raises eyebrows all on its own, because how many people hang themselves naked? I would assume telling people he committed suicide by hanging and they found him strapped to the door hinge by a belt would have been sufficient. Instead, they described how he was positioned, and unnecessarily pointed out that he was “clothed.” Granted, this isn’t proof, but I find it very hard to believe they describe all suicide-hangings with whether the individual was clothed or not.
Something else that I find interesting is the fact that Robin Williams recently played in a movie where accidental death by auto-erotic asphyxiation was one of the movie’s main events. World’s Greatest Dad was a great movie, mind you, and again, this isn’t proof, but it is quite interesting to say the least.
Will I catch flak for my opinion of this? Yeah, I’m sure I will. Do I care? No, not really, because I can’t prove any of it as truth, but I really do believe this is how he died. He definitely wouldn’t be the first famous person to accidentally kill himself during auto-eretic asphyxiation (David Carradine comes to mind).
To end, if I’m right, it shouldn’t detract from Robin Williams’ greatness. He really was a one-of-a-kind. I grew up watching him, laughing at him, crying because of him, and being inspired by him. We all have a “secret side” that we don’t let people know about us. There’s nothing wrong with dying in this way. Honestly, I’d rather know he died this way than to know he killed himself.
Robin Williams was a wonderful actor, a great entertainer, and a great father. He will be sorely missed. . . even if he did kill himself while masturbating.
