The autopsy for Robin Williams is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 12, following the comedic actor’s death on Monday at the age of 63. It’s set to take place at the Marin County Coroner’s Office in San Rafael, Calif.

While the cause of death is believed to be suicide by asphyxiation, he also recently entered a 12-step rehab stint for drug abuse, according to his publicist. His rep said that Williams had been battling depression as of late.
