Robin Williams' Suicide Could Have Been Linked To Hallucinations Brought On By Dementia

The tragic suicide of Robin Williams could have been due to hallucinations brought on by his Parkinson's Disease, it has been claimed.

TMZ has obtained court documents relating to the legendary comedian's death and the paperwork showed that he had been suffering from Lewy bodies dementia, which can cause hallucinations, delusions and a struggle to identify friends and family.

The dementia was connected with his Parkinson's Disease and Williams' family told the court that they believe that these symptoms were the "key factor" that drove him to take his own life in August.

The Mrs Doubtfire star had four drugs in his system at the time of his death, with toxicology reports stating that he had two anti-depressants and two caffeine compounds but no alcohol.

A closed bottle of Seroquel, which treats schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and depression, was found near his body and has been prescribed a week before he died.
