There’s now a slew of conspiracy theories about Robin Williams’ death.
A prominent one claims Williams was killed by the “Illuminati,” the shadowy group in conspiracy theories said to control the nerve centers of power around the world. They claim that it was part of a “sacrifice.”
According to the Marin County sheriff’s office in Northern California, Williams died after committing suicide. His body was discovered on Monday, and a forensics and toxicology reports are pending.TMZ saidthat committed suicide himself by hanging himself with a belt after attempting to slash his wrists.
One theory that was getting shared heavily on social media sites was from conspiracy websites. “Was Robin Williams an ‘illuminati sacrifice’ or another sad story of a wonderful actor whose life has gone awry?”.
Another one claims that the Fox TV series “Family Guy” was involved. The BBC broadcast an episode of “Viewer Mail #2″ on Monday just minutes before Williams’ death was announced.
“A sketch in the episode called ‘Fatman and Robin’ sees Peter Griffin, the father in the US comedy, gain the power to turn everyone in his fictional city of Quahog into Williams by touching them,” saysthe Daily Mail. Some Twitter users said the fact that the program was aired right before his death was announced is a sign of a conspiracy.
Others said that his death was “predicted” or that he was still alive.
On Twitter, a number of people theorized that Williams was murdered. “The illuminati murdered robin williams and made it look like it was suicide,” one person wrote on Tuesday.
Said another, “Now people will start to say that Robin Williams was murdered by the illuminati as a ritual to the devil. #RIPRobinWilliams.” And Also:

Family Guy Eposide Season 10 Episode 22 Title Family Guy Viewer Mail #2 With Robin Williams
While Peter is watching a roast of his favorite comedian, Robin Williams, he feels offended when insult comic Jeff Ross insults Williams. Peter runs outside in the middle of a thunderstorm and accuses God of hating Williams, wishing that everyone was Williams before getting struck by lightning. Upon waking up in the hospital, he discovers he has gained the ability to turn everyone and everything he touches into Williams (similar to the Midas Touch). Peter turns everyone in the city into Robin Williams (while “Rockin’ Robin” is played). At first, this goes well for Peter. But soon, the multiple clones become too much for him, especially after he accidentally turns Lois into one.After a failed suicide attempt (because everything he touches turns into Williams), he orders the drove of clones to venture the world to make others laugh, but chooses five clones to serve as replacements to his family members. The story ends showing that Peter appears insane and has cut both his hands off, a solution that prevents him from bringing any new clones into the world. Stewie was the only one that was not converted, as he mimicked the comedic antics of Williams, and at the end of the scene is shown on the roof stating that Disney will not let them do the Genie from Aladdin.
a bizarre coincidence, a Family Guy episode featuring Robin Williams
which included a failed suicide attempt aired minutes before the
announcement of the actor’s death.
interesting to ponder whether such synchronicities are meaningful and
emerge from the collective unconscious, as Carl Jung postulated, or
whether they are just random coincidences.
