Sheriff defends release of Williams' death details

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) -- Sheriff's officials in the San Francisco Bay Area are defending their decision to release details about how actor Robin Williams killed himself, saying state law requires they be disclosed to the public.

Marin County Sheriff's Lt. Keith Boyd said in an e-mail Wednesday that the agency would have liked to withhold some of the information, but could not under the California Public Records Act.

Boyd announced during a live, televised news conference Tuesday that Williams committed suicide by hanging himself. He described in detail how Williams carried out the suicide and the condition of the body. Some said the level of detail was too much.

Boyd said the sheriff's office will likely also have to release the 911 call it received from Williams' home reporting his death.
