SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — Makeshift memorials of flowers and notes are popping up around the country for actor and comedian Robin Williams, who was found dead in his San Francisco Bay Area home Monday.

Authorities say the 63-year-old, who had suffered from severe depression, had hanged himself with a belt.

Williams' 25-year-old daughter Zelda released a statement Tuesday, saying, "I'll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay."
