Anthony Bourdain had no narcotics in his system when he took his own life in France earlier this month, The New York Times reports.

French prosecutor Christian de Rocquigney de Fayel told the New York Times in a text message that there were no drugs in Bourdain's system - save for a normal dose of a non-narcotic medicine.

On June 8, CNN confirmed Bourdain's passing, stating that his cause of death was suicide.

Bourdain, whose career catapulted him from washing dishes at NY restaurants to dining in Vietnam with President Barack Obama, hanged himself in a hotel room near Strasbourg, France, where he had been working on an upcoming episode of his TV series, according to CNN. Bourdain had skipped dinner the evening before his body was discovered in his hotel bathroom.

Anthony Bourdain was cremated in France, and his remains and travel belongings were sent to his younger brother, Christopher Bourdain.

His mother, Gladys Bourdain, revealed that the family will have a small, private ceremony for the beloved chef.

"He would want as little fuss as possible", she said, telling the Times she plans on getting "Tony" tattooed in small letters on the inside of her wrist as a memorial to her late son.
