In the aftermath of his tragic passing, officials have been investigating his suicide for any key factors that may have contributed to his death.

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 killed himself in a French hotel room earlier this month, had no narcotics or alcohol in his body when he died, a local prosecutor said on Friday. The former chef had only a nonnarcotic medication in his system, in a therapeutic dose, the prosecutor reportedly said by text message.

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

Fellow celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay tweeted: "Stunned and saddened by the loss of Anthony Bourdain".

The Oppo didn't mention an exact launch date for the Lamborghini edition device, but Oppo Find X is expected to launch on July 12. There's a growing trend to offer increasingly bigger displays with a high screen-to-body ratio and bezels as slim as possible.

Prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny confirmed on Friday that there were no toxic substances or narcotics in Bourdain's system when he died.

A CNN spokesperson told ET that Bourdain was cremated in France on Thursday.

Bourdain is survived by his 11-year-old daughter Ariana, who he had with his ex-wife Ottavia Busia. One of those celebrities was Anthony's girlfriend, Asia Argento - one of the most vocal accusers of Harvey Weinstein.

Ms Bourdain plans on getting a tattoo of the name "Tony" tattooed on the inside of her wrist next week. "He would want as little fuss as possible", said Bourdain's mother, Gladys Bourdain, in a statement to The NYT.
