The award-winning "Parts Unknown" host was found hanging in his bathroom in a luxury hotel room in France on June 8.

USA celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, who was found dead in a French hotel room earlier this month, had no narcotics or alcohol in his body when he died, a local prosecutor says. Only trace amounts of "a non-narcotic medicine in a therapeutic dose" were found in his system.

Brash and opinionated, Bourdain had spoken openly about his use of drugs and addiction to heroin earlier in his life.

Ms. Bourdain also told The Times that no public memorial service is planned, though a private family ceremony was likely in the future. His girlfriend, Italian actress Asia Argento, was one of the main accusers against Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein.
