Robin Williams had early stages of Parkinson's

Actor Robin Williams was going through the early stages of Parkinson's Disease when he committed suicide, his widow, Susan Schneider, revealed Thursday.

"Robin's sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson's Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly," she said in a statement.

Williams died Monday in what police determined was a suicide by hanging.
