Actor and comedian Robin Williams died on Monday, August 11, 2014; the most likely cause of death is suicide. Another person’s death is always a shock to the system, but for many of us this death is particularly troubling — not only because Williams was a constant presence in our favorite movies growing up, but because of his warm nature and sense of humor. We don’t expect someone so bright and funny to commit suicide.
