Robin Williams was sober, had early Parkinson's, says wife

Robin Williams was found dead on Monday.

Robin Williams was sober and suffering from early stages of Parkinson's disease as well as anxiety and depression at the time of his apparent suicide, the actor's wife has said in a statement.

Susan Schneider said the actor "was not yet ready to share publicly" his struggles with Parkinson's Disease.

The 63-year-old Oscar-winning star of such films as "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Good Will Hunting" was found hanged at his San Francisco-area home by his personal assistant on Monday.

Williams had been open about his struggles with alcohol and had recently gone to a Minnesota rehabilitation center this summer to "fine-tune" his sobriety, his publicist said.
