A French judicial official said the toxicology report found no narcotics in Anthony Bourdain's body when he died. Bourdain was a New York chef who became known for his television shows Parts Unknown and No Reservations. His death shocked his fans around the world when he was found hanging in his hotel by his bathrobe belt on June 8.

Police ruled his death a suicide by hanging and only had yet to determine whether he had any drugs in his system at the time of his death. No narcotics were found, but there were trace amounts of a nonnarcotic medicine in a therapeutic dose, according to local prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny. It is unclear what that medication was as Rocquigny did not specify.
Bourdain was in the small village in France filming his show Parts Unknown with co-host Eric Ripert when he committed suicide. He was cremated in France, and his remains and belongings were sent to his younger brother Christopher. Gladys Bourdain, his mother, said the family would likely have a small private ceremony. "He would want as little fuss as possible," she said.

Gladys Bourdain is a former editor at The New York Times and said she plans to memorialize her son with a small tattoo that says "Tony" on her wrist. She was not a fan of her son's tattoos but plans to go to his tattoo artist and get her only tattoo. Bourdain was romantically involved with Asia Argento, one of the first women who came forward publicly with claims of longstanding sexual abuse and harassment by Harvey Weinstein. Before his death, Bourdain also tweeted he had "been on the receiving end of (Clinton's) operatives wrath. And it ain't fun."
