Should the term "Committed" be used in conjunction with the death via suicide of Robin Williams on this page? Many charities and suicide prevention services criticise the use of the term commit in reporting on such events (http://www.suicide.org/stop-saying-committed-suicide.html for example) and as a result I wonder if perhaps an alternative phrasing could be used.

"Committed" is the common parlance used, so I would use that. It also does not apply just to crimes.
