FOX News:

Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams, who dazzled in such wide-ranging dramatic and comedic roles as alien, nanny, therapist and cartoon genie during a four-decades long career, was found dead in his northern California home in a suspected suicide Monday. He was 63.

The Marin County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that Williams was found unconscious and not breathing in his home around noon. The statement said the investigation into Williams’ death is ongoing, but the coroner “suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.”

A representative for Williams said in a statement the actor had been battling “severe depression of late.”

“This is a tragic and sudden loss,” Mara Buxbaum said. “The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

The death of Robin Williams is truly like a death of so many childhood memories. So many great TV shows and movies. But the best of all was his brilliant comic ad-lib. I can remember Robin Williams from when he first came to our TV’s on Happy Days as Mork. This would in turn spin off into Mork & Mindy where he starred with Pam Dawber as an alien living in Bolder, CO. Williams starred in some of my favorite movies like The Bird Cage, Good Morning Vietnam, Good Will Hunting, August Rush, Moscow on the Hudson, The World According to Garp and Dead Poets Society.

Dead Poets Society – the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation; don’t resign to that…

Not only a great movie scene, but words to live by. “We much constantly look at things in a different way. Just when you think you know something, you have to look at it in a different way.”

“This investigation is far from over,” Smith told reporters at a news conference Saturday afternoon. “We have a lot still to do.”

The unidentified teen, who is a resident of the East Bremerton mobile home park where Jenise was discovered missing last Sunday morning, will be booked into Kitsap County Juvenile Detention Center on charges of second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter and first-degree child rape.

Jennifer Huston Missing Since 7/24/14: Stopped at a Rite Aid Drug Store and Purchased Gatorade, Trail Mix and a Package of Sleeping Pills … Surveillance Video Image … Missing: Accident, Abduction, Suicide? (Update: Possible Sighting in San Juan Islands)(Update: Jennifer Huston’s Body Found)(Update: Officially Ruled a Suicide)

Ut-oh, Sleeping pills, full tank of gas and cell phone turned off …

Authorities in Oregon have released a surveillance video image of missing Jennifer Huston from the day that she went missing on July 24, 2014. The image is of Huston stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Newberg, OR, and purchasing Gatorade, trail mix and a package of over-the-counter sleeping pills.

These are not good signs. The police have stated that the amount of sleeping pills she purchased would not be enough for a lethal dose. Also, the full tank of gas purchased by Jennifer Huston’s provides her with a 300 to 350 mile traveling range. Not to speculate, but I think the police may be looking at this in the wrong way. Sadly, sleeping pills, a full tank of gas and some one turning their cell phone off as all of the unfortunate signs of one attempting to contemplate suicide. The sleeping pills are not intended to be lethal, they are meant to make one drowsy as they run a car with a full tank of gas as carbon monoxide fumes enter the vehicle. The cell phone is turned off so not to be pinged and located. As per KPTV, according to phone records, Jennifer Huston received a text message from her mother at 6:22 p.m. Thursday, but the phone stopped sending signals at 6:25 p.m.

I hope I am very wrong and she is found safe and sound.

Missing Oregon mom Jennifer Huston stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Newberg, Ore., and purchased Gatorade, trail mix and a package of over-the-counter sleeping pills — a non-lethal dose — before she disappeared last week, police said Tuesday night.

Police released new details about the search for the married mother of two young boys.

Detectives said her husband, Kallen Huston, has been cooperative through the whole process, including multiple interviews, and he passed a polygraph test.

Investigators previously released a timeline of Jennifer Huston’s last known activities that included leaving her home last Thursday at 5:45 p.m., going to the Oregon First Community Credit Union in Newberg about three miles away and then to a nearby Circle K gas station on Portland Road.

Police said she spent less than $40 at the gas station, so they believe she was topping off the tank. She withdrew less than $100 from the credit union ATM.

Say a prayer for the safe return of Jennifer Huston.

Country Sheriff’s deputies have told KPTV that a couple visiting the islands are convinced that they saw Huston on board a ferry traveling from the mainland town of Anacortes to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island on the morning of July 31, exactly a week after she was reported missing.

San Juan Country Undersheriff Bruce Distler told the station that the couple said the woman was blonde, in her 30s, and driving a green SUV with a cracked windshield, similar to descriptions put out by police. Distler said that the tip was so descriptive that it prompted deputies to alert the police department in Newberg, Ore., where Huston was last seen.

FOX 12 can exclusively confirm that deputies are actively investigating a possible sighting of Jennifer Huston in the San Juan Islands.

Now, San Juan County Sheriff deputies are rushing to get their hands on surveillance video from aboard that ferry.

“The information that we’ve received is that there was a female on the boat, on the 9 o’clock ferry sailing from Anacortes to Friday Harbor on Thursday morning July 31,” said San Juan County Under sheriff Bruce Distler.

“The woman we talked to also identified a green car, possibly a 99 Lexus, with cracked windshield although she couldn’t give us a license plate,” said Distler.

Deputies say the couple who spotted the car also described a woman in her 30′s with blonde hair who had a 2 by 3 inch white Band-Aid on her left cheek. The tip was so descriptive, they’ve alerted the Newberg police department.

Deputies say they have also called ferry security based out of Seattle to pull the tape from that morning so they can confirm if the woman is in fact Huston.
