The French prosecutor reveals tragic details of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain's death


On the 8th of June 2018, CNN announced the death of iconic Chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain was found dead in his room in the Le Chambard hotel by his close friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert.

Ripertn entered the hotel room when Bourdain failed to respond and found his friend dead. The celebrity chef had hung himself with his bathrobe belt, French authorities have now revealed, as reported by Daily Mail.com.

Bourdain was in Kaysersberg hotel shooting a new episode of his series, Parts Unknown. French prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny confirmed on the 8th of June that Bourdain had been found in the bathroom of his hotel and had used the belt of his bathrobe to hang himself.


According to the reports of the local Coroner, no signs of violence were present on his body, but results of the toxicology exams are still pending.

Bourdain's death has come as a shock to his friends and family. His girlfriend, Italian actress Asia Argento shared her pain and bewildered grief on a tweet, describing herself as "beyond devastated."

Bourdain had always been very open about his past struggles with addiction to heroin and cocaine, but so far no reports of his being despondent or depressed have come to light.


Twice-divorced Bourdain met Argento in Italy while he was shooting an episode of Parts Unknown in 2016. He leaves an 11-year-old daughter, Ariana, and many grieving fans and admirers.

One of these is former president Barack Obama, who tweeted about Bourdain's ability to bring people together, and make them less afraid of the unknown.

Bourdain first rose to fame with his best selling memoir Kitchen Confidential. 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.
