The Marin County sheriff’s office said in a statement that it “suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia” and that an investigation was underway. The Times reported that Mr. Williams’s publicist, Mara Buxbaum, said in a statement that Mr. Williams “has been battling severe depression.” He was 63 years old.
The second trailer for Blue Sky Studios animated feature Epic arrived yesterday. It is the studios seventh feature, after the success of their Ice Age franchise, and films such as Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! and Robots.
