Last Friday, Anthony Bourdain was found dead of an apparent suicide. He was 61.

CNN’s Brian Stelter announced on the air that Bourdain hanged himself.

“Anthony was found dead this morning in his hotel room in France. He had hanged himself in his hotel room,” Stelter said.

Bourdain was found unresponsive by his good friend, French chef Eric Ripert, in a luxury hotel in the small town of Kayserberg.

According to CNN, the celebrity chef was at work on an upcoming episode of “Anthony Bourdain: s Unknown.”

“It is with extraordinary sadness, we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,” the network said in a statement.

His talent never ceases to amaze us, and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family in this incredibly difficult time.”
