Charlie Trotter death: Autopsy shows no sign of trauma, foul play, ME says
November 6, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Charlie Trotter's death was not a result of trauma or foul play, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner. Trotter died at the age of 54 in his Lincoln Park home.
The Cook County Medical Examiner released a statement on Wednesday, the day after Trotter was pronounced dead, about the autopsy. It read, "Preliminary findings indicate no signs of trauma or foul play. At the discretion of the Medical Examiner, additional tests, including a toxicology analysis, will be conducted before a final cause and manner of death is issued. Those tests are expected to take six-to-eight weeks to complete."
Trotter was found unconscious in his Lincoln Park home and transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital on Tuesday at 10:45 a.m., where he died. A vigil was held for him that night outside his now-closed namesake resident.
Trotter was known for putting Chicago on the culinary map.
