Anthony Bourdain had no narcotics in his system when he died … this according to French investigators.

As we reported … the beloved chef died by suicide earlier this month after he was found hanging in a hotel bathroom in France. It was initially unclear if he had ingested any narcotics before his suicide, but The New York Times says a French official has ruled that out.

The report says the only thing found in his body was a trace of a non-narcotic medicine in a therapeutic dose. Anthony was in a small village in France, filming his show, ‘Parts Unknown,’ when he was found dead. He was 61.
