Robin Williams memorial grows outside ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ house
A memorial for the late Robin Williams continued to grow this week outside a San Francisco home made famous by the actor’s role in the movie “Mrs. Doubtfire.”
Fans flocked to the Pacific Heights house, leaving flowers, photographs and letters for Williams, who was found dead in his home Monday of an apparent suicide.
The Victorian home was ever-present in the 1993 film starring Williams as a father who, struggling to keep his family together, poses as a nanny in an attempt to win them back.
Douglas Ousterhout, a plastic surgeon, lives in the home and told CBS SF Bay Area he doesn’t mind the growing tribute.
In a twist of fate, Ousterhout apparently works on transforming transgender patients.
The San Francisco Giants paid tribute to Williams on Tuesday night, holding a moment of silence for the actor, who was reportedly a regular at Giants games.
Williams was found dead by his personal assistant inside his Tiburon home after there was no answer to knocks at his door, authorities said.
Lt. Keith Boyd, assistant deputy chief coroner in the Marin County Sheriff’s Office, said the preliminary cause of death was “asphyxia due to hanging.”
Toxicology tests are expected to take two to six weeks and will reveal whether Williams had any alcohol or drugs in his system, Boyd added.
