Robin Williams is dead - level 2
Robin Williams was a famous actor and comedian. He was 63 years old when he died. Police confirmed he killed himself by hanging.
His death shocked his family and fans. His daughter said that she doesn’t understand why he could not stay. People think that Robin Williams was depressed. Maybe he had money troubles too.
Police now carry out toxicology tests. We will know if he had alcohol or drugs in his body.
Difficult words: confirm (say that something really happened), hanging (when you put a rope around your neck and hang), toxicology (branch of science which detects poison).
