Hanged self, cut wrists

Autopsy0 Comments

Marin County’s assistant chief deputy coroner, Keith Boyd, reveals that Williams hanged himself in his California home and died by asphyxia and he suspended himself from a belt wedged between a door and a door frame in a seated position just off the ground. When found by his assistant, Williams’ right shoulder was pressed against the door, and rigor mortis indicated that Williams was dead for several hours before he was found

He was suspended, as I indicated, from the belt, which was wedged between the door and the door frame . . . in a seated position, slightly suspended off the ground.

Boyd also there was what appeared to be blood on the blade of a pocketknife found “in close proximity to Mr. Williams,” and that cuts on William’s wrist were superficial and recent. Boyd refused to discuss a suicide note.
