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, host of CNN's food-and-travel-focused Parts Unknown television series, was found unresponsive in his hotel room on June 8 while shooting for one of his TV shows.

A French official tells the New York Times that Bourdain had no narcotics in his system when he committed suicide two weeks ago.

While the toxicology report did show therapeutic traces of an unnamed, non-narcotic medication, the ruling remained that his cause of death was self-inflicted.

Bourdain was cremated in France shortly after his death, and according to his mother, Gladys Bourdain, family and friends will soon hold a private ceremony in her son's honor.

Bourdain - who died at the age of 61 - is survived by his 11-year-old daughter Ariane, who is his only child with his ex-wife Ottavia Busia.

Bourdain first gained global fame after penning the 2000 book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.

Bourdain spoke and wrote about his past drug use frankly, detailing his once prolific use of cocaine, heroin and other drugs in a 2014 episode of "Parts Unknown".
