"At approximately 10:30 a.m. on August 11, 2014, Mr. Williams' wife left the home, believing Mr. Williams to still be asleep. Mr. Williams' personal assistant became concerned at around 11:45 a.m. when he failed to respond to knocks on his bedroom door," Lieutenant Keith Boyd told reporters. "At the time, the personal assistant was able to gain access to Williams' bedroom and entered the bedroom to find Mr. Williams clothed, in a seated positon, unresponsive, with a belt secured around his neck with the other end of the belt wedged between the closed closet door and the door frame."
Boyd shared that they received the 9-1-1 call at approximately 11:55 a.m. on Monday, August 11. Williams, 63, was then pronounced dead at 12:02 p.m.
The caller was "distraught" and indicated at the time that an apparent suicide had taken place and that rigor mortis had already set in.
