Just when we thought the waters of this story calmed themselves, new information has surfaced in the untimely death of Robin Williams.

A source close to the family has revealed the comedian's suicide was reportedly triggered by a disease called Lewy Body Dementia — which is caused by irregular protein deposits in the brain that can hinder normal function.

The Dementia, which can closely resemble Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, may cause the affected to see hallucinations of people, animals or objects…

So this report would make a lot of sense, especially since Robin's wife told police Mr. Williams was complaining about how his meds were making him feel right before his death.

The actor's autopsy allegedly revealed he only had four drugs in his system, two were anti-depressants and two were "caffeine compounds" — so we have no real idea how those pills could drive his behavior and interact with the disease in question.

Doctors involved in the case are reportedly insisting that Lewy Body Dementia was the "key factor" in his suicide, and is the reason why he's gone today.

Such tragic news, especially if this could have been treated and kept under control.

May he rest in peace.
