LOS ANGELES (AP) - The wife of Robin Williams says he was in the stages of Parkinson's disease and was sober at the time of his apparent suicide.

In a statement Thursday, Susan Schneider said that Williams was struggling with depression, anxiety and the early stages of Parkinson's when he was found dead earlier this week.

The wife of the actor-comedian said he was not ready to share his Parkinson's diagnosis publicly.
