An autopsy Wednesday was inconclusive for celebrity chef Charlie Trotter, who died Tuesday after he was found unresponsive at his Lincoln Park home.
A final determination of Trotter’s cause and manner of death is pending additional tests, including a toxicology analysis, according to a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner’s office. No signs of trauma or foul play were found.
The tests are expected to take six to eight weeks.
After being rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital from his home on the North Side, Mr. Trotter died. He was 54.
