Comedian Robin Williams had been planning to undergo neurological testing the week before he killed himself last year, and probably only had three years to live, his widow said on Tuesday.
In her first interview since Williams hanged himself at their California home, Susan Williams described how the Good Morning, Vietnam Oscar-winner was “just disintegrating” physically and mentally in the months before his death.
An autopsy found Williams also had Lewy body dementia, which causes a progressive decline in mental abilities, his widow said.
“If Robin was lucky, he would’ve had maybe three years left. And they would’ve been hard years. And it’s a good chance he would’ve been locked up,” she said, referring to a doctor’s prognosis for the comedian.
