Celebrity Chef found dead due to an apparent suicide by hanging


Anthony Bourdain was found dead on the 8th of June 2018 in his room in the Le Chambard hotel by his close friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert.

Bourdain, 61, was working on an episode of his series Parts Unknown in Kaysersberg-Vignoble, France and the cause of death has been attributed to suicide by hanging.

The celebrity chef was best known for his CNN series Parts Unknown in which Bourdain traveled around the world in search of exotic culinary experiences, with each episode visiting a different location.

The show premiered in 2013 and won many awards, including a Peabody and five Emmys. The series is currently in its eleventh season and was slated to continue indefinitely.


"He's irreverent, honest, curious, never condescending, never obsequious. People open up to him and, in doing so, often reveal more about their hometowns or homelands than a traditional reporter could hope to document."

Jeff Zucker, CNN, 8th of June 2018.

CNN has shared their views on the chef, who was well-liked and admired by all his colleagues, and declared that he will be sorely missed.

The celebrity chef's last post on Twitter praised the score for the Hong Kong episode of Parts Unknown which featured a haunting version of the 1964 hit by British rock group The Animals., The House of The Rising Sun.

Bourdain shared a link to Michael Ruffino's "Rising Sun Blues," an original arrangement of the old folk song, with a distinct Blues sound.


Bourdain's girlfriend, Italian actress Asia Argento, expressed her shock and grief at his sudden death by suicide saying: "He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated."

His death follows on the heels of designer Kate Spade's suicide and has brought attention to a growing problem in the United States.

A survey conducted by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows a terrifying rise in suicide rates. Suicides have increased by 25% over the last two decades, with twenty-five states experienced a rise as steep as 30%.
