French prosecutor Christian de Rocquigney de Fayel said there was no evidence that Bourdain’s death was anything but a suicide, so the cremation was allowed, according to People magazine.
“Nothing suggested the involvement of a third person,” Rocquigny said.
The celebrity chef, author and TV host killed himselfin a hotel room in Kaysersberg this past Friday. Bourdain, 61, was filming an episode of his popular CNN show “Parts Unknown.”
His body was found by his close friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert.
