Christian de Rocquigny, a police lieutenant in Paris, France, said to the New York Times on Friday that they never found any illegal substances in his body.

Bourdain was found on June 8 in his hotel bathroom in Kaysersberg, a small village in France.

French prosecutors had previously said that all indications pointed to suicide by hanging.

According to the New York Times, Bourdain did not have narcotics in his system at his time of death.

A French official has said that there were no narcotics in Bourdain's system other than a trace amount of a nonnarcotic medicine in a therapeutic dose.

Bourdain had been open about his use of drugs in the past, saying that in the 1980s, he struggled with serious drug problems.
