MARIN COUNTY, Calif. -- Officials release more information on the death of Robin Williams.

Police were called to Williams' home just before 12 p.m. PST Monday, where they found him dead.

They say his assistant discovered him in a bedroom in the home, and called police.

An autopsy was conducted Tuesday morning, and officials say they did not find any signs of a struggle.

Investigators are waiting for the results of toxicology reports, and say a final report on Williams' death will not be released for several weeks.

“The preliminary and I say preliminary results of the forensic examination, revealed supporting physical signs that Mr. Williams' life ended from asphyxia due to hanging,” said Marin County Sheriff's Department Lt. Keith Boyd.

Tributes continue to come in for Williams. People have been leaving flowers and candles as memorials, including at his home, and his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
