"At that time, the personal assistant was able to gain access to Mr. Williams' bedroom and entered the bedroom to find Mr. Williams clothed, in a seated position, unresponsive, with a belt secured around his neck, with the other end of the belt wedged between the clothes closet door and the door frame."

All day, neighbors have been leaving flowers and notes in front of the Williams' Northern California home. Maria Nedir says she was proud to have him in the neighborhood.
