Robin Williams' body was cremated and his ashes scattered in the San Francisco Bay the day after he was found dead at his California home.

CBS News obtained a copy of the actor's death certificate. The funeral home was Monte's Chapel of the Hills in San Rafael, California. The cause of death shown states "pending."

Williams was found dead on Aug. 11 of an apparent suicide at age 63. His wife recently revealed that Williams had been suffering from the early stages of Parkinson's disease, along with anxiety and depression.

Authorities will continue to investigate his death and said that toxicology test results won't be completed for two to six weeks. Once those are in, another press conference will be held. It's unclear if Williams left a note.

On Monday, Williams' good friend Billy Crystal will do a special tribute at the Primetime Emmy Awards in his memory.
