Robin Williams apparently went to an art gallery at Marin Catholic High School in Northern California to visit with local artist Mark Jaeger.
Jaeger told TMZ, who published the alleged photos of him, that Williams was at the gallery for around an hour and “seemed in good spirits … laughing frequently.”
He said that WiIlliams wasn’t drinking alcohol.
Williams also was there with his wife, Susan Schneider. He also spoke with students of Jaeger.
The photo was taken at 5:45 p.m. on Saturday, while his body was discovered on Monday morning, TMZ reported.
The sheriff in charge of the decision to release details about Williams’ death defended his actions on Thursday, according to reports.
CBS News reported that Lt. Keith Boyd said, “The Sheriff’s Office understands how the release of the kind of information you heard yesterday may be viewed as disturbing by some, and as unnecessary by others, but under California law, all that information is considered ‘public information’ and we are precluded from denying access to it. These kinds of cases, whether they garner national attention or not, are very difficult for everyone involved.”
“Frankly, it would have been our personal preference to withhold a lot of what we disclosed to the press yesterday, but the California Public Records Act does not give us that kind of latitude,” he continued.
On Thursday, the San Francisco Giants also honored Williams.
“We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Robin Williams. Robin was a true artist who brought joy to the world through his brilliance, humor, talent and love for our community,” Giants president Larry Baer said, reported Rolling Stone. “We lost one of our greatest fans today and he will be deeply missed by the Giants family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Robin’s family and the entire community during this difficult time.”
Williams was often seen at Giants games and led crowd cheers.
